Bought 8/24/2014 at 34,451 miles after 30,000 mile service and AC recharge. Still with cold A/C in South Florida heat. Always used synthetic oil. Put 6 - 7,000 miles yearly on this car and I was only driver. Back Seat rarely used. Always used custom made Heat Shield in front window (included), so dash is in great condition.
2 key fobs (always keep 2 keys. If you lose both, will have to get a new switch and electronics at $1000 cost). Replaced all radio and control knobs as they were getting soft and deteriorating after 12 years. Retractable dash cup holder spring pulled off plastic tab - fixed with solid rivet so it won't be coming off again and works as new. Replaced Shark fin and radio antennas as plastic was deteriorating.
Replaced with top of line 45,000 mile Bridgestone Protenza tires on 11/14/16 at $920 with less than 10,000 miles on them now. Replaced one damaged tire less than 7,000 miles ago. Installed new 36 month battery 3 months ago.
Convertible started working slowly 6 months ago due to low Hydraulic fluid. Replaced fluid and worked fine, but the Right Tonnaeu Cover Hydraulic had small, slow leak and required occasional topping off of hydraulic fluid. Mechanic wanted $700 for part + labor. Reputable company in Oregon replaced all 6 seals in the ram for $200 and good as new with 3 year warranty. Replaced both right and left Tonnaeu cover hydraulic rams myself (took 30 minutes) since I didn't want the other side to fail because of increased pressure now ($400 total). Roof works as new with no hydraulic leaks (see pics). Canvas in great condition and just re-waterproofed with Star Brite and water beads right up.
Great car. Navigation, Tour package and Lime Yellow Metallic paint as upgrades. Won't find one babied like this with these miles.
Wasn't planning to let her go, but picked up a new Kia Stinger and it's time for someone else to enjoy this great car.
Clean Title in hand, owned outright without lien and ready to go
For sale locally as well. May end auction early if sold locally
|“Less than normal wear and 1/2 the miles of most 12 year old cars, Driver's seat with some wear on outside edge, 1 wheel scuffed since i got it. No significant scratches or dings in paint. No dents. Trunk activation switch on trunk lid works intermittently, since I got it but no problem using switch on driver's door handle or key fob, so I never replaced it. Otherwise, great car, runs strong.Many of the cars I've seen list Kelly Blue Book Values much higher than they should be. Seller DOES NOT SHOW YOU what they entered as options to get to that price. I've posted a picture of the original Window Sticker so you can check the features/options yourself and see the true value. I've done a lot of recent maintenance (newer tires, new battery, waterproofed roof, replaced 2 of the convertible hydraulics, and fresh oil) so you don't have to worry about it.Only selling because I bought a Kia Stinger last week and can't drive them both” |
