Timing for repairs for luxury used SUV
I am debating whether to get a new 2014 Honda or Mazda SUV, OR a used luxury SUV, like the Acura RDX or the BMW X3 (I have seen 2011-2013 in my price range). I would spend around the same price either way. Full disclosure, I am not particularly car savvy, so I would have to go to a mechanic to get anything done that needs to be fixed.
I am trying to estimate what the costs would be if I chose to go the luxury car route, and am trying to figure out when the big maintenance will start to kick in. About what mileage do they start to require big expenditures? (Is there any website I can go to in order to find out for various vehicles?) Do people generally not recommend getting luxury SUVs used?
Any insight would be helpful--I would like to upgrade to a more luxury vehicle with my next purchase, but not if it will be likely to break the bank in a year or two replacing major items. I intend to keep the car until it dies, most likely, so longevity and costs of repair are my main concerns.
Thanks in advance!
