We bought it mostly sight-unseen from an in-house ad at the place I worked at the time. It was decent looking in the pictures the PO sent to us, and he was asking $3K less than retail, according to KBB. We drove 200 miles to pick it up, and it's been great, more or less, ever since! Car had 83K miles on it when we bought it (Jan 12). It now has 117K miles on it (Jun 14). Yes, we did the timing belt/water pump service!
