In, 2012, I received a better price from Park Ave on my 2007 CRV trade in as well as the purchase price for a new X3. Came to about a $1300 price advantage. And I live near Freehold!

i do not have the issue in front of me (it's at home), but if I recall, CR had an issue with the turbo engine only in the X3 for 2011-2012 and not the 2.8 engine that I have in my 2012.
