The girl who bought my Passat just drove it away. I was clearing out the glovebox earlier today and came across the original bill of sale along with receipts for service from NM, WA, MA, NH, VT, and CT. (Wow, some of those repairs were expensive for little shit.) Anyway, it was a good car that took me safely through dust storms, rain storms, blizzards, bad traffic, and one earthquake. After 8 years, I'm pretty attached.
On the other hand, I now have a huge stack of cash equal to almost four times the amount that the dealership offered as a trade-in, one and a half times what Carmax was willing to pay, and a little bit over 20% of the amount that I initially paid for the car. So I can't be all sad.
