Well all, it was a good go. 2003 CTS. Got to put some 208 000kms on the old girl but it is now time to trade her in. Since my family has grown since I got back from tour I had to get something a little bigger. My better half talked me in to a V70 Volvo. I know, I know. At least I talked her into the R model. 300 Hp can't be all that bad. See you all around and thanks to the many folks on here that have helped me over the years.

We never want to fall in love with a car so much that we don't want to sell it. I just sold my 04 CTS with 37k miles on it and another 2 years of gmpp. My wife and I flip-flopped 10 times a day on keeping vs selling it. I has been a perfect car. But selling it with 37k brought me many more $$ than selling it with 45k. In my mind, at 45 or 50 k, it is just another old car. Low mileage vehicles, on the other hand, bring premium dollars.

BTW, I usually buy my used cars with 5 or 10k miles on them. Then I drive for a year or two; then I sell them without losing too much. If I buy the cars wholesale, sometimes I drive for free--when I sell at retail.

Now, I certainly do the required maint and purchase tires, etc. I figure those expenses are normal maint. I would have to make those expenditures no matter what I drive.

my 2 cents.

This one is the wagon. It is fully loaded. Not an option left out except for the auto trans. I like the manual anyway. Took it for a drive and really like it. Should be good to throw all the young lads stuff in the back and still be fun to drive. The R models are a lot better than the normal one. 300hp, 295 ft/pd, 6 speed, nav, upgraded leather, whatever Volvo calls the Magnetic ride control, and a bunch of other stuff. Still going to miss the CTS but it was just time to move on.
