I would go with a new one. Seems a little high for a 2017...CR-Vs seem to be so popular that the used prices hold amazingly well.
I was offered a 2017 Touring with 5K miles for $28k.
Seems like I can get a new 2018 Touring (brand new) for $30k.
Which would you go with?
Johnny Walker says never take money advice from random strangers on the internet.Dave Ramsey says always buy used and never finance anything, other than your home.
1) Friend of ours bought a very low mileage CR-V for a good deal. Older couple bought it after owning "big cars" forever and just couldn't adjust to a "smaller" car. It happens.I would wonder why someone would trade in a CRV with 5000 miles. .... could it have a problem like oil dilution ???
It might not be common But I have the problem. I plan on getting rid of my problem as soon as the new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe comes out this fall . It's a shame because other then no heat in winter and oil gas problem I would keep it.1) Friend of ours bought a very low mileage CR-V for a good deal.

2) "Oil dilution" ....after 18 months of ownership and 20,000 miles of driving in my 2017 CR-V I have yet to see such a thing. Same goes for the other five DI Honda's in my family. I won't argue that there may have been some people who had that problem but to imply it is "common", well I would have to see some hard data to back that up. We have never had a problem with this in any our family's Hondas. Zero.
(sure wish I had a tool bar and access to smilies)
