Take a wild guess...How much?
Come on! Trans and engine still worth double even with the mileage! LOL

$5,000? Your Scion tC is worth more than that! How many miles are on it? It's worth more like $14,000, I would think. What do you think it's worth?

103k...in great shape still. I should least be offered $8,000-ish. Just checked, trade in values on Blue Book. $8,160. If I was to sell it privately; $10,790. A dealership's asking price; $13,540.
Come on now! My two year old tC STILL has the "New Car Smell!" Not much but still does....
Sorry Carmax...I know the "Trade in" tricks! I wasn't trading in my '94 Ford Probe with trans problem for stupid $250.00. LOL

I couldn't remember how many miles you had on your Scion tC. Well, $8,000 it is, then.
I am used to late-model tC quotes. I sure see a butt-load of Scion tC's on the road in Tucson, AZ. They love them there, as they should. It is one hot looking automobile!
#1994 of 2039 Well, I just blew some more cash...

On new tires....
Got stuck paying 155.00 per a tire. Winter tires! The tire shop only had two BF Goodrich in stock. And I didn't want to get stuck with worn down tread by next month with going with the same ones I had last year.
Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme
I guess these are from a company that is claimed to be "Cadillac of Tires."
I sure felt the difference within a second! They are such a quiet winter tire. When April comes around....I better have 1,500 stashed somewhere for a tire & wheel package.

I just blew $149 a tire on new tires for my '08 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS. They are Pirelli P-Zero Nero M+S Pinna's. They take my town's street bumps much better. I had an alignment done and my toe and camber were way off. The cars steers straight now.
Also, the P-Nero Zero's give off way less road noise on all surfaces. Italian-based Pirelli makes a great tire!
Congrats on your new tires, too!

I guess I'm the lovable kind person after all.....
Monday, I woke up at 11:00 am for no reason. Decided to stay up a bit and go to the dealer for some oil filters. Sales stops me and fires questions about the tC in the snow. I answer back. Went to parts and got some filters. Walked back and all of sudden Bullitt's saleswoman greeted me with "Did you get my Christmas card?" I look at her while noticing she seemed very happy. "No not yet" with smile back. She asks me "So how is the tC in the snow? I never driven one yet.." I tell "Okay, but I wouldn't recommend buying one during a snow storm. You just have to learn how to drive it." So anyway, she asked me "Hey, you want to get something to eat?" I said "Okay." We had lunch together with couple of her co-workers. We talked about each other's employers and interests. I bought hers while offering to buy theirs but they declined. She sure is a woman who found her "Fountain of Youth."
I learned how much that woman is even more fun outside those walls LOL I guess this recession is giving her some security with customers like me.

Now its 52 degrees. All the snow is melting. Funny thing is, I was at the ATM today. And as I was about to drive off...I clipped the median quite hard! I automatically got worried. Went to get gas; checked the tire. NO DAMAGE whatsoever. I would of damaged something else with other tires but not these. I think I'm in "tire love" LOL
Dec 27, 2008 (2:55 pm)
I know about loving tires, I love my new Pirelli P-Zero Nero M+S(mud + snow) Pinna's, too! I feel ready to take on the elements, come what may! Glad you survived the hit on the median!
