I guess you had dealt with some problems. CPO is only good for another 2-3years max from the time you take possession on the car.
I know it has a great engine but might come with headaches. Probably the same reason you got rid of it.
I'll see what I find but they are all ranging in the 30k price range and with taxes... close to 36k.
Unless I find one with decent low mileage under 30k then I'll consider it.
Preferably with sport package, manual.
