I am out Forum!

Well guys, she was a beauty. A 2008 that I bought in 2011 with 15K miles, and got to enjoy her for 8+ years and 50K miles. But i just couldn't put up with all the issues, starting with the variator issues (god bless you Erik DiSomma for doing that), a broken sunroof, an AC that would barely blow, the stickiness everywhere, the poor worn leather all over the car, and most importantly the random sh*t that just goes wrong with these lovely cars. I had both passenger windows randomly fall down and not go up and also the number of times I got in and the car just wouldn't start. Never a dull moment. All in I spent $19K keeping this up and running in 8 years so not awful - about $2400/year - if that stat matters to anyone looking to buy a used one. I got $10K in trade in - how these cars don't hold their value amazes me...I am on to a brand new Kia Stinger and while I will never have my car parked in front by the valet like the QP did every time, I have peace of mind for the next 5 yrs/60K miles. Finally one more public shout out to Jason & Vance who dealt with me fairly and honestly every time. Enjoy your cars - they are still the most beautiful things on these road. Ciao, Max
