'05 Lincoln LS or '06 Lexus ES
I've found a nice '05 LS that the wife likes. 26,000 miles, 3 year warranty, and in great condition. I know the complete history of the car (tranny solenoid replaced and tires were replaced under warranty). I can probably get into it for around $14,000, plus the snow tires I'll probably buy for next winter. However, my wife also likes an '06 Lexus ES 330 she drove, which is around $22,000. So, my question is which is the better deal? I usually keep a car for 10 years so will I be plagued with those $500.00, or more, yearly annoyances that older American cars tend to have when the LS's warranty runs out? Am I better off paying a bit more for the Lexus which probably has a better long-term track record than the LS? Pay now or pay later... Thanks.
