Hi there!

Just some preliminary info:

Cadillac SRX 2012 Luxury Collection
113K miles
Bought used at 50K miles in 2014
819 Credit Score
$550 payment per month
Live in Dallas-Fort Worth Texas
Car for teenage son and I but we carry lots of cargo

25-30K per year
I am open to a lease or buying or lease then buy.

Luxury SUV larger than SRX
I don't want it to change payment more than $15-20 p/mo
Good miles and MPG
Trailer hitch would be nice but not necessary
2014-2018 would be great for future value

I NEED to get a new(or new to me :smile: ) luxury SUV that is bigger than my srx but doesn't change my payment too much. My car is starting to have lots of maintenance needs.

    Hi @HunterDonahue, you definitely drive a lot of miles. I don't think leasing would be to your benefit. Plus, not too many leasing companies offer leases for that many miles.

    If you are looking at a luxury SUV, I would look at the Lexus RX 350 or Acura RDX. Reliability is good on both but I think the RX 350 is better than the RDX. You should be able to find a used one for a decent price. The RX 350 was redesigned for model year 2016. You might be able to find one in your budget but it really depends on how many months you finance the loan over.
