I think the age isn’t the problem here, it’s the km’s. Any car that has done this many km’s i would rule out.

 True. We had two cars to choose from. A 2010 model with 100,000kms or a 2012 model with 220,000kms. The dealer was pushing us to take the newer model but we didn’t.

My 8 seater is a 2010 model. 145, 000ks. Well looked after. Looks great and drives great. We are thinking Of downsizing but we were told by the dealer we’d get no more than $5000 for our car.

 That's from a dealer though. Check redbook and see what private resale is like.

Not sure if it was good or bad but I don't regret my decisions
