Laura (my wife for those who don't know) has been driving her little Rav4 for years and loves it. It however needs some serious love. The interior is about shot from years of kids spilling stuff, dogs traipsing about, and just general wear and tear. It doesn't bother her, but I wanted to upgrade it, and had been looking on having the carpet replaced and the seats recovered, but it was pricey. While talking to my boss about this he informed me that he had just bought a new car and his "company car" was going to be for sale soon. This is a Nissan Maxima SL (their Sport Luxury model) that has been garage kept, with 72,000 miles, and maintained very well. It is fully loaded with every option they offered at the time. Neither of us have ever owned a car with half of these features.
The only issue is the roof needs to be repainted. For some reason, the paint is coming off.
Long story short, I bought it for her to drive, and she loves it. It is super fast, and fun to drive. She is tickled with the seat and steering wheel warmers with these cold mornings we have been having lately.
For $1000, I think I got a good deal.
