That downhill trend, plus a random electrical ghost that popped up, had me losing confidence in using this for interstate trips every month. And if I'm being completely honest, it was coming due for new tires in the next 2k or so, and I wasn't sure I wanted to put that kind of $ into it anymore.

@mgmsequinox, did you cross 350k?

@Colt Hero, I know you prefer video, but here are the last two photos I took right before I handed over the keys. I don't have a flickr or youtube account or anything to post video, so hopefully you won't be too disappointed...
It'll have to do.

Hey - how much did they give you for the trade-in? I had a co-worker who recently traded in a 2008 Altima, well equipped, with leather, around 180k miles. He bought a 2016 Audi Q5 with around 30,000 miles for $26k at a CarMax near here. CarMax only gave him $700. Based on that deal, I'd say you got about $100? Or did you have to pay them to dispose of it? LOL!

CarMax gave me a $1000 offer when I took it to them a month ago, just to get a baseline. I had actually stepped away for a minute when the Toyota trade-in guy came back with a $750 offer, but my salesperson made him push it to $1000 and that's what he told me when I got back to his desk. Sold!!!
