1) It is three years younger (an '08);
2) The stereo has a remote (!);
3) It has 40K less miles on it (31K);
4) It has a 100K mile bumper-to-bumper warranty;
5) It is in excellent condition (zero body damage);
6) It is a roomy four-door sedan;
7) I got a 2% better deal on the financing;
8) I brought them down 12% on a fair first offer; and
9) Given all of the above, the payments are only $26 more/mo.
I don't think things could have worked out much better for me. What an incredible relief!
