I went to look at a good used car this morning for "Salt Season" use.  
The car was about 65 miles away, so with a few trips around town, I 
probably put 150 miles on today.  I also drove up to the Red Sox/Yankees 
game in Fenway on Friday night, so the car has traveled a grand total of 
350 miles this weekend.

Off-topic question: The car I drove to look at was a 2005 Chevy Malibu 
Classic with only 4,000 miles on it.  The car has no options, although 
the base model has a generous selection of accessories (e.g., AM/FM/CD 
player).  The only downer for me is that it's a 4-banger.

However, the seller is asking $9,950.  Given that the sticker on this 
was $19,000 just a few months ago -- and Kelley's blue book is $15K-18K, 
I'm thinking it's a good deal for a car that will be used from November 
until April every year and then given to teenagers a few years from 
now.  For me, I drive Corvairs when there is no salt on the roads, and 
so this car would strictly be used as a winter car.  It's not inspiring, 
but it does seem like good, sensible transportation at a fair price.

Does anyone on this list have any opinions on this deal?

Thanks in advance.
