I traded in a 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4x4, Hard Top, AC, Cruise, Tilt, All there and working and leak free, solid body. For a lease on a new CR-V.
Very 'friendly' and cordial staff. Move, move, move, sign, sign, sign.
Got home, re-read papers, and their 'Trade In Value' was $2500, which is $4000 below Blue Book for a rusted out trade in with major issues (e.g. already discounted for their mark-up). They basically covered the base costs of the lease, and pocketed the difference and made sure and pointed to where to sign, and not draw any attention to their trade-in thievery.
High pressure, distractions galore, hurry up and sign.
It made me feel ***, and angry. Angry for getting robbed. *** for letting them do this to me.
Review about: Crv Lease.
Monetary Loss: $4000.
