Got my 04 S60 R silver nordkap in excellent condition with every option except bodykit. It had 83k miles, perfect carfax with over 30 maintenance records. Major repairs such as timing belt, 4c strut replacement and suspension rebuild, and new vacuum hoses and new Yokohoma tires had been done on the car. I got it for $8,900 from a dealer, but he also took my absolute POS 02 Crown Vic for $1,300 and it needed atleast $1,500 worth of work to get it into good condition. Thought I got a steal given it was 1 out of 2 for sale in Arizona. Given that's a manual V and an 07, that's a steal.
I sold my good friend my MINT 60k mile 1998 Eagle Talon TSi AWD and he was in the Marines, he got sent to the Sand Box for 2 years, when he came back his friend that had "stored" it for him had put 10,000 extra miles on the car.I've been in his shoes; I'm stationed in Korea now and I would bet that's where that dude is heading (Asia). If I didn't have my parents barn in Maryland and my sisters garage in North Carolina, I'd be screwed!! Over the last decade, my SR sat for 2+ years at my sisters and 1 year at my parents, and my VR for 2+ years at my parents. I feel this guys pain; I can't imagine racking up storage fees on top of paying the car off while it sits!!
