Thanks a lot peeps. Quite some valuable advice here. Ok right now, the BMW is of the list. A friend is suggesting the 2004 Camry (Big Daddy). His reasons among others is that Avalon, like Kenzo rightly said is a luxury car and too technical which will make me to be visiting the mechanics every time. And that it also consumes more fuel than the big Daddy (I don’t see why I can’t afford to buy fuel though if there’s no scarcity. 😀 ). Honestly, I love the Avalon but then I don’t want to have a nightmarish experience for my first drive. Please, what says the house.
For me i don’t see much luxury difference in the two. the avalon will most likely come with leather seats, gps navigation (which is of zero value in Nigeria my country), finer interior (beauty is in the eye of….). All of these are not worth the maintenance risk (to me).
as far as the big daddy is neat, Ac is working (very important), has electronic windows and side mirror adjustments. it’s a pass for me.
I’ll agree with kenzo. its safer to buy a Japanese car because you have easier access to parts and a long list of mechanics who what they are doing.
as for what to look out for;
Mileage, make sure you test drive it, listen to the engine ( i heard a good engine brings of steam in the mornings), make sure there is no smoke coming from the exhaust. and of course the price 🙂
