How much is the dealer asking? 5,500 miles?! And I thought my 2013 was low at 7,500 miles. Wow.

Very nice looking car. Why did you sell it, and what did you replace it with?

How are the tires? Still stock? $700 would get you nice and sticky Pilot Super Sports, unless you need all season tires.

You got the Limited trim - besides tires, there's not much it "needs".
