We are going to be trading in our current when we get our MDX. We have been waiting for the MDX 9 months and have been told that our car will be here in the next couple of weeks.

The issue is that our current car has a very slow leak of transmission fluid, that I would expect wouldn't be noticed by the dealership when we trade it in. Do we have to tell the dealership about it if we aren't asked? How about if we are asked if the car has any problems?

I do feel a bit slimy about this whole thing, but the dealership has treated us quite badly, so I can rationalize this by figuring that:

1. they are already making a hefty profit on us,

2. they sold us this car (used) in the first place and it arrived with undisclosed problems which they refused to fix.

Thoughts???

You're right, Iceman, it makes absolutely no sense to give the lousy dealership more business. This dealership is located about 20 minutes from us and the next closest Acura dealership is over an hour from here. AND this dealer didn't require a deposit to get on the waiting list. AND when we put our name on the waiting list on March 9th, they told us the wait was 3 to 5 months, compared to longer waits elsewhere. Five years have passed since our last car purchase at the dealership and I suppose we have mellowed .... or maybe we were naive enought to believe this experience would be different.

BUT we waited 7.5 months before the dealership offered us a 2001 MDX .... in late October (avoiding our phone calls all the while). We declined the car and have recently been told we will get a 2002 Mahogany with a build date 11/17-11/21. We put our name on a list at another dealership in early July and they just called us to tell us our 2002 Mahogany has a build date of 11/17-11/21. It seems we will have a car before Christmas.

Thanks for all of the valuable input on selling a used car. We're new to this game. I'll let you know how it goes!
