    I wonder how much price difference it would cost to trade for a new 2019 at the dealer? From a 2018 with less than 6000 miles

    a lot more than any updates made to the 2019 are worth? ;)

    Why? It's literally an illuminated e-brake button, volume knob/climate controls, and an updated microphone...

    The 17-18 isn't as terrible as people make it seem, they're just whiny people.

    If it bothers you that bad take the loss, move on, and quit bitching.

    I have absolutely no intention of "upgrading."
    But if I did, it would not be for the volume knob. It would be for the fan speed buttons and the larger cup holders.

    What about the illuminated E-brake light? You need to see it to make sure you know it's on or off.

    I’m a girl, I’m not bitching, I’m just asking a question. Never mind

    Since every deal is its own negotiation, you'd have to go to a dealer and find out. Given that the CTR holds its value, it could be very little.. but that would also mean fighting through the dealers mark up too. Are we talking purchase? lease turn in? Maybe a few grand?

    You are good, because I was thinking about it as well since I like Sonic Grey :) but financially you will probably take a $5k hit more or less

    Ask a simple question and get stepped on...huh? If you want a new one as suggested above go to the dealer and see what kind of deal you can work out. Since you show LA as your town the mark up might be significant plus sales tax all over again. The kid is trading his 2018 10k mile CTR on a new Mazda SUV but he didn't share what they offered and he lives in the midwest...the fly-over part of the midwest so wouldn't be valuable info for LA anyway.

    I asked my dealer before I posted this question, because they didn’t have an answer for me (no stock). I just want to change the color, PMM is a bit boring for me.

    I'd agree that you'd have about a $5k hit, not to mention interest rates are higher now (if you're going with a loan). If possible, unless you have a very good relationship with the dealer for reasonable trade-in, I'd see about private selling your car once you can put money down for an incoming '19 CTR of your color choice. But that's if you want to go through that hassle to save money.

    And in case anyone didn't know, it still lights up on the dash if you pull up on the button while the car is off. I'm glad Honda thought of this otherwise it would be a pain knowing if the brake was actually up or not since we don't have a visible handbrake to tell us. I still miss an actual handbrake but the interior does look more streamlined without one, too.
