Keep one Robert. The C3 will gain you some bucks one day plus you will kick yourself one sunny day when you do not have a way to get away, and put a smile on your face. I have kicked myself for years for selling mine. I may not be able to get back in one now.

Exactly !

AGH!!! I know... but I need the $$. Still stressing about this whole thing, but you're right... If I sell both I'll never have another one.

Wife and I actually looked at a Honda Pilot this past weekend and we'll be getting rid of her 2010 Enclave and the C5 for now.

We all do!!!

Oh... another lesson... make sure you can get to the fill bolt first on a differential before you drain the fluid.

Enclave has 175K on it... been a great car with little problems. It's getting old though and I'd like to have another family car paid off before I retire in 4 years. I don't drive the C5 and probably put only 500 miles on it last year, the C3 even less.

The C5 is my favorite body style. When I 1st saw one the thing that came to mind was " Wow!! They finally built a race car!) I still like it better than the C6 or C7, it has smoother body lines. Now the C8? Gotta see one in person.
