Only 68,000 miles on ten year old car.
2000 Nissan Maxima GLE, 68,000 miles, $6,000.
Dr Ron’s client needed a car for his mother down in Florida,
so we found this cool senior citizen’s Nissan Maxima.
"One Senior’s trash is another’s treasure"
My 94-year-old mother in Florida had an old Volvo 850
that her aides have used to get her to doctor appts and shopping.
It has effectively died.
So we have to make a decision about whether to replace it or not.
If not, then she has to take taxis to physicians
(cabs are expensive down there)
and we impose on the aides to use their own cars on occasions.
If we buy a used vehicle, we don’t want to spend much since she may live for years
(her sister died at 103) and should not outlive her money.
Repair on the Volvo would have run to $7000, obviously not the way to go.
Can you search for cars in Florida?
My brother will be there for an already scheduled visit on Nov 6,
so he could buy it when he arrives.
We aren’t looking for luxury, just reliability.
Maybe a Toyota or Honda.
My Accord is doing fine, and Daniela’s Forester has had no problems.
"Hello, Ron –
Here’s a little history which should answer the questions you asked.
I’m in my 70′s, my daughter (who moved to Florida)
and I jointly bought a home in West Boca in late 2007.
This car has a clean Carfax, it’s never been in an accident
or needed any body repair except I had the dull headlight covers re-finished.
I recently moved in MA to a condo.
I have two cars, so I’m bringing one — a 2005 Mini with 26,000 miles — to FL,
which is why I’m selling the Nissan.
The car is maintained in a garage in W. Boca.
I was in FL last week and was hoping to sell it, but it didn’t happen.
Now I’m back in MA.
I can possibly have my daughter show it to you, but
I’d like to know more about you
and get a better sense of your interest level before I ask her to do that.
Please tell me where you live and what you do.
I’ve attached a few pictures.
