Well geez, your doing it wrong and need a vehicle that looks dull and wore out.
Oughta be looking for excuses to shop. The common deals are no payment for 90 days which thereby puts off your 10 year car loan for 3 more months !! SUCH DEALS
White always looks brilliant when cared for so well. It'll really catch notice looking so pristine
I think most of my life, I've taken older cars for granted never really thinking about it. My dad was always keeping up the cars washing waxing etc....and to this day, has a 99 Bug that looks showroom and an 05 Prius as the same. I'll guess 80 k on the VW and for sure 190 to 200k on the Toyo.
Luckily, I kind of learned or inherited that quest for keeping the cars looking nice.
They reside in MI where the nasty cold and oft ugly brown or black snow lays around forever sometimes.
My wife and I seem to go around 8 years or more with our cars and many times they were not new but new to us. The last two we sold or traded were an 08 and an 04 with 119 k and 124,000 both sporting a deep gloss helping them get noticed and holding some value. That's a win / win worth some of the efforts involved.
