Re: Goodbye, Salsa Red
Yes, I was thinking about yesthatsteve's thread about it buffing right out. Similar logistics with my accident, accept the other person was moving like a rocket, accelerating through impact. Young driver, who confused the brake and gas pedals. Uggh.
I had 88k miles. I would have lasted for 250k easy. I know that's speculation, but the car never gave me a single problem, and my other Toyotas all lasted that long. I knew all along that the book value was lower than what my car was worth.
Generally speaking, the book value seems to be in the $3-4k range, while the boxes in good shape seem to be in the $6-$9k price range. And the supply is very limited, which probably also drives up the price. Which dealership and which town is that box available? I might have to check it out.
I'm driving a rented Corolla now. Excellent engine. I wish Scion put that Eco trim engine in an upgraded 1st generations- of course, that's just wishful thinking. Every other car seems cramped, compared to the box, which is strange since it's a subcompact.

Edit: I see you're in Ohio. I think I might have seen it on Autotrader.
Autotrader and CarFax are the used car sites that I'm using. Are there any others?
I plan on taking a long drive or a flight to buy another box. There are never any good one available in my state.
