I want a white, silver or black car but MUST have gray and black interior. I will never get a tan or lighter color interior again. Florida gets hot so black is kind of rough but that is what dark tints are for lol. I am looking into the smaller Lexus RX 350 or 450, I have always wanted an Audi and love their suv's. I also like the Mercedes suv's both small and large. I am not a fan of Infiniti and BMW is nice but don't care for the look of the car or the interior. I have been looking and plan to go to the dealer this weekend to get a value on my car for trade in, resale then test drive a few I have seen that I like a lot. Again this time there is no rush like in the past I have always needed something that day and had to get whatever color they had in the model I wanted. I love my suv and the color outside is an awesome dark green almost looks gray from a far. I love white cars I think they look classy, but a lot of them have tan interior. One bad thing when buying used you can custom pick the colors you have a few choices if you are lucky for the exterior and interior.
I really am thinking it will be another Lexus either smaller suv or luxury sedan, or I like the Audi smaller suv/crossover looking car and then the Mercedes ones are awesome, the interior is a thick high grade leather where as lexus has a smoother leather that does not age as well. I have also considered leasing but really that is like throwing away money. My Lexus was a great investment cause for what we paid for it along with the trade in and money down it has held onto it's value only negative is it is a v8 and horrible on gas which these days is not a big selling feature. I am interested to see what they will give me along with what I can get in exchange. Want to lower payments by a decent amount, upgrade to a couple years newer maybe 2010-2011 and would have to have dark interior. Below are a few photos of ones I liked. I will have more details after I got to Carmax to look this weekend.
Let me know what you think or if you own or have owned one of these cars let me know what you liked or for sure what you did not like. I have been looking for weeks. It is hard to go from an SUV which I have had for almost 5 years and before that had one for 3 years and a mini van for 7 months so I like the room and being higher up, but now that my youngest is almost out of booster seat a car would be cheaper, sportier and better on gas. We will see, my hubby usually plays a huge role in the car decision even though it is mine cause he has ones he likes too and wants to make sure myself and his little girls are in a safe, nice car. One that he will also enjoy riding around in too lol.
