Hello! I have been listening to you guys for a long time. I need some car buying advice please! Help!
I found a Subaru outback, fully loaded and fairly priced according to kelly’s blue book but it has almost 140,000 miles on it. I’ve heard that subaru’s last a long time with good upkeep. It has about 5 recalls to be taken care of. It seems to drive nicely - test drove it at the dealer. It has some dings and chips in the pain that the dealer said they would try to buff out and they said they might be able to get some of them out. I’m going back to look at it once they do the work. This is the actual listing: http://www.pricehonda.com/used/Subaru/2011-Subaru-Outback-3e498b5e0a0e0ae77948e5c83d15d2c0.htm
I test drove a 2010 traverse with a body in amazing condition, there were two chips on the window that the dealer will replace and a few dents (really a few) but I didn’t like the way it drove. I drove like a minivan and the engine didn’t sound as nice as the subaru.
I found a honda crv 2010 with 56,000 miles on it. basic. cloth seats, manual seat adjustment. I’ve heard some say that once you hit 100,000 these need a lot of repairs. This is this listing: http://www.pricehonda.com/used/Honda/2010-Honda-CR-V-57e2f4bb0a0e0ae8192de0eb958dad28.htm
Please help me. I don’t think the traverse is good as chevy is rated very poorly on consumer reports. Honda is rated ok but subaru is rated the best of the 3. Which would you buy? According to kelly’s blue book they are all priced fairly. Please help.
