    If that mileage is correct, you got a deal.

    I should have explained how I got a low mileage car. It was my Uncle's and he didn't really drive much and always keep it garaged. He passed away in November from a stroke. I had to had pay 4K to the estate because the lawyer said it could get messy if it was given away (No will, multiple relatives, mom is executor) Luckily, my Uncle wrote down that the CM was having a problem and that lowered the price of the car.

    He was a little of a hoarder. The car has two jacks, two fire extinguishers, a sling shot, three flashlights, a change of clothes, trash bags, snippets of rope, etc. I did keep the spare FOB battery with a small screwdriver just in case.
