need to buy another car, want help with pros and cons of new and used speedy luxury cars
The roads here are patched and bumpy and you have motorcycles zipping around you like flies. It’s video game driving. Sure it’s a dangerous country if you’re a dumbass but otherwise it’s fun as hell. You need something agile and speedy for passing. Plus I have the added complication of having an insanely inclined curvy driveway. I have to have AWD or some sort of serious traction control.

I’m thinking about a used Lexus or a new Beemer but I want other ideas. The Lexus is reliable but the Beemers are known money pits. Will a new car warranty prevent any new car from being a money pit? Routine maintenance on anything is much cheaper here. I could never afford a Beemer back in Florida, for instance.

I already have an 2009 X5 4.8x with a blown motor, the second in 14 months. I want to fix it and keep it to have to drive once in awhile when I need an SUV and would prefer to buy a car to drive most of the time.

Basically, I want comfort and speed while hugging the road. And for somewhere around $50K.

cars I had in the past: ‘85 Trans Am, ‘87 Corvette, ‘90 Formula Firebird, 2011 Cadillac STS but this X5 is the most fun to drive

any thoughts from fellow driving enthusiasts?

from what I can tell online, Beemers are the most fun but Lexus will end up costing much less.

forgot to add, cars not made in the US are taxed heavily down here, the initial price of what I want will be about 38% more than it would be in the US.

Suzuki Ignis.

There's nothing better for the price and you can get one new most likely.

all wheel drive, not much HP but from what I have seen here they are light enough to do just fine. If you can check one out that should be considered.

thanks but geez, it has like 2 digit horse power

I hit a deer with my Vette and had to sell it shortly after, I had deer hair embedded in the fiberglass, its butt took out a headlight and it flew over the car

as punishment I bought a Plymouth Sundance 4 cylinder to get me around until I decided what to get and I blew this motor in like a year because I had it floored everywhere, it would never go over 80 miles an hour

Another consume whore. You are slave of the system and money addict. They made you drive everywhere, shopping, school, work, etc. They made so many places you can drive 2. And you are lazy and weak, because your body is not used to walking and fresh air, like your ancestors who didn't have cars. They were much stronger than you. They were careful with their time, and they didn't have devices, to distract them. When you are stuck in traffic look at people around you, they are slaves just like you. And all of you are addicted to gasoline. Because you are 2 lazy 2 grow your own food. And you just live there, thinking that you are "special", one of a kind, while being like everyone. Have fun buying your next cage on wheels. Good job. sheeplebah

Re: need to buy another car, want help with pros and cons of new and used speedy luxury cars
Listen you want a reliable car? Then forget anything new. Get yourself and early to mid 2000s Benz E350D diesel and ride the fuck out. They're fairly luxurious, fairly cheap to own, and have pep. Otherwise stick to an Accord or Camry. If you want to go S.U.V. then tahoe's, surbabans, or 4 runners are great. Trucks, Chevy, ford, dodge your straight. They all make descent trucks. If you're worried about ego then just take another Audi or Bimmer and continue to be fucked with no line.

You obviously need a used truck.

3rd gen 4runner. Very easy to maintain and work on yourself, plentiful parts and great for rugged roads but is also a good everyday city commuter. Bad mpgs is the only negative but it'll save you money down the road with the reliability. Great resale value as well.
