Mercedes and BMW are good, reliable cars and most likely you're not making a mistake. But choose your model carefully, in matters of price, engine and interiors. I would also consider looking at Volkswagen, they have some great cars, for example the Touareg and Golf

What does "Reflects $2,000 cash or trade" mean?

The problem with euro cars is twofold: Australia is a tiny market so we do not get full back up here and, even though they will deny it, i'm sure that we get the cars that whilst still passing inspection ok, didn't pass as highly as the cars they send to USA or keep in Europe. The other problem is that they are fine pieces of machinery, made with great precision, so they do not like being mistreated service wise. If they have not been serviced properly then they are trouble waiting to happen. Japanese cars are generally more forgiving. And cheaper to fix and insure. Generally.

Can you finance a used 2006 vehicle for 72 months?


If buying new and under warranty - who cares, go Euro.

If you buy a car that you really don't like but is a good price, can you trade it in within a year?


If buying second hand, only buy from the original owner and with full service history. Many people can afford to buy Euro's second hand, but cannot afford to service them properly, or sometimes insure them, so repairs and maintenance are not done properly. I know people who sold their Alpha as a wreck for $6,000 because the gearbox failed and it was $9,000 for a new one ! The car was only five years old , but they didn't have a spare $9,000. Factor that in to your thinking.
Oh, and check out the replacement cost of a headlight( you may get a shock). If you can't afford one, look elsewhere.

Is any one selling a cheap car in or around Irving, TX?

In my country (Mexico), most of welthy people that choose Mercedes, Peugeot, BMW or Audi, complain because these kind of cars are not designed to resist the condition in mexican roads, so, they better get Lincoln, GMC or Cadillac (sedans, suvs and pick ups) that resist a bit more (maybe they have a better suspension).
