The seller would like you to know: “I have owned this car for 3 years and have taken very good care of it. It has been garage kept and serviced annually with any issues addressed at that time. I am the third owner of the car, and I had a long conversation with the previous owner and believe he also well maintained the car. I believe I have taken care of all issues with the car. I only hope the new owner will enjoy it as much as I have.”
