The dealer will appraise the FA5 and tell you how much they will give you for it. If its less than what you owe on it they will just tack it on to the new loan.
so if they give me less then what i owe on it, i still have to pay for the remaining balance left on the fa5?

lol! I'm the opposite of you bro. I wanted to trade my FG2 (under finance) for a FA5. The Dealers wanted $13,500 for the trade in. It's a loss concidering that I payed $18 for it (3months own) and lost $4K that I bought Gap warranty, Honda Certified sticker, and all that junk. I owed $20K on loan and if I do the trade in, I'll have to owe $5K more than what I owed. That's a big hit and I wouldn't want to do that since I COULD GET A SUPERCHARGER for 5G's!

the best thing to do is trade with someone with an FG2 that wants an FA5 and do a loan transfer :D best way dont go through the dealer they will rip you!

EDIT: if they owe close to or the same amount of course

I traded my FG2 for an FA5 last year. Lost a few but the way I see it, it was like a short 2 year lease. Now I have the car I want.

My uncle is the finance manager at my Honda dealer and back in December I really wanted to trade in my FG2 (07 NHBP) for an 09 FA5 (RR) b/c I love the 09 sedans and I really wanted RR and they got one in stock so I went to talk to my uncle just to talk prices and I would have gotten screwed! I pay $315 a month right now and it would have gone up to $360/mo.! I was like yea... that's a no go. I mean I love my FG2, I've loved them ever since the concept came out but I dunno there was something about the 09 FA5 that I love! But I guess I'll be hanging onto the coupe for a while.
