CityWheels was a car sharing company. Innovative and it worked well enough over the past five years to allow them to expand their fleet. I’m going to copy and past the memo they sent which is self explanatory.
If you need a car these cars could be a good deal and have supposedly been maintained at the dealership since their purchase:

> BACKGROUND INFO
> These cars are being retired from CityWheels — a small carsharing club my wife and I coordinated for the last five years.
> Carefully screened members drove a few times per month for shopping, errands, appointments, etc.
> Most were graduate students in medicine, nursing, law and engineering at Case Western Reserve University (i.e. – responsible, high- performing people).
> They didn’t need to drive very often, so they shared a car instead of buying their own.
> I bought each vehicle new from Motorcars in Cleveland Heights, and personally took them for all maintenance.
> We are as honest as they come — I will tell you everything I know about each car’s history and upcoming needs.
> No surprises.
> They are priced so low only because we are disbanding the club — we’d like to pay our creditors and finish up.
> But they have all been solid, dependable cars and we would otherwise keep them for years more.
