[Our car has been sold. Sorry, would-be Prius buyers. Disappointingly, the couple who bought the car learned about it via an AutoTrader listing, not this blog post. We ended up selling it for $16,000, which is about what I expected to get -- once I realized that nobody was going to pay $1 million for a 2007 Prius Touring, unless it was made of gold.]
I've never wanted to be a real-life car salesman, but it's kind of fun to play one in a blog post...
BUY, BUY, BUY! -- THIS CAR WON'T BE IN OUR DRIVEWAY FOR LONG!
Wow, a 2007 Prius Touring with only 36,500 miles for hundreds less than the NADA clean retail value of $18,175!
Only $16,495. Gosh, my wife and I are almost giving away this car.
Plus, it's got brand new tires -- a recent gift from the Toyota Lifetime Tire Replacement deal that came with the car when we bought it new.
We're getting a Nissan Leaf, an electric car that will move us up the Green Food Chain. So the Prius has to GO, GO, GO!
But we're asking hundreds less than the NADA clean retail value of $18,175. Why? I don't know... I guess we're crazy! Come see us and buy the Prius before we regain our sanity.
This isn't a regular old Prius, it's a Touring model. Better suspension. Tighter handling. Larger spoiler. HID headlights. You can trick this baby out even more and be the envy of a high school parking lot.
It's got stability control and traction control.
It's got keyless entry.
It's got a LCD display that provides countless hours of informative motoring fun.
Oh, did I mention automatic climate control?
And check this out: cup holders! Along with a steering wheel!
It's in great condition -- just one small ding on the front passenger side door, which we've accounted for in the asking price. And that simply adds character to the car, like Cindy Crawford's mole. Kelly Blue Book says our Prius is in "Good" condition.
Good, for sure. We go further and say this is a GREAT car.
