I am thinking it is more expensive to own an TL, than an accord, gas, insurance, and overall price, they offer a better lease deal, but in the long run, it is still more costly.
Now, a tsx is little closer to the accords value, and is a really good bang for the buck.
I have also looked at other cars, like VW's, Acura, and I still say you can't be the Honda's over all value. Although Acura is Honda.

Someone clarified the dual zone climate controls in an earlier post:
Basically, Dual zone/single mode (Accord and TSX) versus dual zone/dual mode (TL).
I always get that wrong - thanks for correcting me!
#1157 of 1159 *Trade-in: '05 Accord EX-L for '06 TL *
May 14, 2009 (4:09 pm)
I have an '05 Accord EX-L (4 cyl, auto, desert mist metallic) that I bought new in October '04. Its in great condition and only has a little over 18K miles.
I was thinking about upgrading to an '06 TL (in either white or black, and prefer it to to be under 35K miles). I've never driven a TL before, so I was wondering how much of a step up it would be from the Accord I have. I guess a test drive at a local dealership here in the New York city area would show me how much I like driving it (as opposed to my only looking at them on the road and admiring how nice they look
Can anyone give me some idea of what a good trade-in exchange would be? What would be a reasonable price for my Accord, and a reasonable price for an '06 TL. Bottom line: what is the difference in price between them?
And which dealer in the NY area would be the best place to get a good dela on a trade-in?

Dealing with a trade-in, at a dealership, I think you would be spending about $10k for the upgrade (with similar mileage to your Accord). I think you could do much better on "private party" deals though. Maybe $6k

Wow! I guess you don't drive that much! Just 18K miles. With ultra-low mileage cars, you never get close to what they're worth on a trade-in. Much better to sell privately, even though that's a royal pain in the butt.
