Used car purchase
Looking to buy a used Luxury brand sedan. Any opinion on a $18,000 2008
Lexus GS350 RWD with 56K miles vs $20,600 2010 Acura TL AWD with 45k
miles. Both very well loaded. (assuming the initial inspection of both checks
Hello ill go with the AWD Acura TL I like their 2010 models
I would go with the Acura also, AWD and lower mileage and Acura has been doing this a littler longer that Lexus. Just remember that the Acura is Honda and the Lexus is Toyota. The Acura SUV I had rode better than our Lexus SUV, but I don't know if that would hold true with passenger cars. That's my 2 cents worth.
Thanks for the input! I've owned Acura and Lexus and never had any major issues. All things equal, i would probably lean towards Lexus. But the model year, AWD and miles may be worth the extra ~$2600.
If you live where you get snow and ice on the roadways believe the AWD is worth it.
Although I have owned Acura and liked them, in this case I might go with the Lexus if you don't need the AWD. The Lexus will be more reliable.
I have owned ES300, RX330 and LS400. Lexus is very dependable and cheap to maintain. However if you require AWD where you live then I'd go with the Acura. Being a Honda product it will surely give you similar reliability.
