| Price range is 30 -35. Have heard great things from acura and lexus owners and the research has backed that. The Lexus CPO program/ warranty sounds great and they seem like very reliable cars.
No need for a 3rd row- only have 1 baby. Probably will only do 10K a year. This will be a family car used on the weekends, not for a long commute anywhere. Don't need a big suv, but want enough to pack things easily.
What made you switch to Infiniti? Why wait until end of next month? I assume because of end of Q1, but does it make that much of a difference?
10k?? DEFINITELY LEASE!
Infiniti is the same quality, comfort, tech, durability, and efficiency with better styling and much better pricing.
End of Q is significantly better, I buy all my cars at 10 pm on the last day of the month. High volume dealerships are pushing to make their #s and will take a loss even to get their dealer-wide rebates/benefits.
If you're set on the CPO I would do as I mentioned, look at whos offering promotional financing and head to 2-3 dealerships and get pricing on all the cars that you like - negotiate for a few hours, get their best pricing in person. And leave.
If you know what you want to pay (which should be 3-4K less than what they say is their best price) tell them to call you when theyre ready to meet that price and you have 5 other cars similarly spec'd that you want to check out. If you do this enough times, youll get your price.
Still, recommend the lease - at 10k miles you could get a QX60 fully loaded for $400 a month 0 money down for 39 months quiet easily, possibly better.
