Tucson is a bit much of a drive from Anthem, lol.

There's something about an extra $800 fee on all their cars.)
I didn't trade anything in either because I know Id get more through a private seller. In your case, it would be a shame to see such a nice car pawned off to a dealer who could care a less. I'm sure you can find the right private buyer who would appreciate the work you put into it.
Yeah, I know private sale is the way to go, but a car like this could sell in 5 days or 5 months, lol. And dealing with bs craigslist people for that long is not up my alley, haha. I would love for it to be pawned off to another enthusiast on this forum, and would certainly hate to see the dealer take it in for it to just go to crap after knowing the amount of time and money invested into it. But sometimes demodding the easy stuff and trading it in is too quick and easy to turn it down, ya know? Who knows, maybe they'll give me a good trade in value. I've got receipts for all work performed on it since I've owned it.
I have set aside time this Saturday to drive down to Subaru Superstore and give the XV Limited a test drive. Maybe I'll even test drive a Forester too, who knows.
