Unless you're a frequent trader, there's no point paying the premium for a 2007 carry-over. By the time a car has around five years on it, and assuming equivalent miles clocked and condition, the trade-in/selling price difference between the two model year cars will be
peanuts - far less than the discount you'll get buying the 2006 as a year-end closeout.

I would think that an end of year 2006 might fair a little better in terms of trade in value since it'll have low mileage when compared with other 2006 Accords that may have been purchased early on. Does anyone know for sure?

You're right - accumulated mileage does factor in when determining the trade-in or selling price of a used vehicle. But, caution is in order in automatically assuming that a late original sale date infers fewer miles than an early sale date. There are some hard mile drivers out there and there are some very conservative drivers who take 3 1/2 years to put 22,000 miles on a car. (Ask me how I know about the latter... )

Tee-hee, yeah, my statement was intended to be a little brain teaser - think about it just a little more. (Hint: There's only one possible solution to the conundrum of low accumulated mileage in a car of which I would have intimate knowledge of it being absolutely true and accurate... )

Looking for incentives on 07s. They've only been out for 2 months. If you want any kind of substantial incentives look for remaining 06 models, if there are any.

I'd look for incentives on 2007 models by summer time. It's not a matter of if, but when.
