I took the TSX to CarMax to get it appraised. It did better than expected. It was close enough to what I owe on it that the payoff will balance out what I plan to put onto the TL as a down payment.
I had them run in-house financing on it (even though I plan to finance it through my credit union) and the results were, um, hilarious. 15% interest. I could swing it if I really, really had to, but nooope. So I’ll head to my credit union this week and see what they say. If somehow it falls through, I’ll just take the money and run, and drive the Prelude for a month or two until I can get a down payment on another TL.
Bonus outgoing (to another CarMax) RS for your time.
