More expensive gas, registration, insurance, maintenance.

Why not find a good used toyota or honda.


This. People never seem to get this part.....that is until issues come up. Even if it's "old", it's still a luxury car point blank.

So many people with new luxury cars complain all the time about the cost of maintenance.....in my head I'm like wtf were you expecting?

There are lots of cases of people lucking out like this and others not so much. It really just depends. You just have to do your research.

OP, do you have full maintenance records? How many owners and miles? How does the price compare to the Blue Book value? 

Also check for things such as tires, brakes, and the battery. If the car comes with these things (new or recently replaced) then you can factor that into the value. They will be pricier for a luxury car. 

Do you know anyone that can help you with maintenance? 

And can the person that you are gifting this to afford the upkeep? If they cannot then you should rethink this.

ONLY if you have a RELIABLE mechanic hookup

A newer domestic will have cheaper maintenance,  repair, better on gas ... 

Might cause debate but the right service contract (warranty) might be worth it ... $1200 up front and no worries on major repairs

Thank you ladies! You have all been super helpful. Yall are right, the gas would be an issue for her. I just thought I was getting a good deal. Its a lexus suv, the owner said the gas is NO JOKE and that's why she wants it gone.

An older family member was attacked walking home from work late one night so I want to get her a car so she can stop walking home so damn late at night.
