We had been thinking about trading my wife's car since both of our cars were 2006 models. She really liked her light blue Toyota Avalon and if we were going to trade, she wanted another as much like it as possible. On a Monday we took our daughter and grandchildren to the airport in St. Louis to fly home and started out to shop until we knew they had seats since they were flying standby. It had snowed the night before and the roads were still partially covered with snow and ice. When the cars in front of me put on their brakes, I did too and started sliding even though the tire tracks appeared clear. I headed for the shoulder, but a car was parked perpendicular to the flow of traffic and the driver was standing between me and his car talking on his cell phone (he apparently had not had an accident). I tried to go into the ditch but slid sideways into the end of the guardrail. We were not hurt but the car was not drivable. Time to get that newer model! We wanted a 2012 and found it at Runde at an excellent price. There were a couple closer to home, but one had been a rental car and then traded in by a private buyer after only four months; the other had a lot more miles on it for only a few dollars less. After a few emails and phone calls with Chris Kerkel to flesh out the details on the car, Wednesday we drove over 235 miles intending to buy it. The first test drive we noticed what we though might be some problems with the suspension, so Chris had a service technician check it out. He said everything was fine but it was stiff from the temperature hovering around zero in the mid-afternoon, so they lubed the struts to loosen them up a bit. That and/or being in the shop to warm up a bit made a big difference during our second test drive. That coupled with a call to a mechanic at home I trust, Chris' thoroughly professional and no-pressure demeanor throughout, and the absolutely pristine condition of the car convinced us to complete the sale and we are very happy with the car.
