New Avalon or 2007 LS?
I put on 35,000+- miles a year, my 2008 Avalon Touring edition (Purchased in 2009) has 65,000+ miles on it. my local Toyota dealer is offering me a 2011 Avalon Limited Edition in Pearl White at a very good price, and now a friend is offering her 2007 Lexus LS 460 with 42,000 miles on it for about $3,000.00 less. The issue is, new VS used and some miles vs no miles.
I've not really used the warranty as such, on the Avalon. At least not enough to be concerned, but what if?
No local Lexus dealer, although if I'm buying used I'm guessing a local garage or Toyota dealer can do simple maintenance. The closest dealer is only 35 miles away.
I'll be going backwards in years, but getting a Lexus in return:)
I have found a 2008 LS 460 L for $2,500.00 MORE then the Avalon, but again, it's a Lexus and an L model? And my car gets about $2,000.00 less trade-in value on the L model.
So New Avalon Limited - $33,000.00, $17,000.00 trade-in
Used LS 460 - $36,000.00 - $15,000.00 trade-in
Used LS 460 L - $39,500.00 - $13,500.00 trade-in
So what's a guy to do?
