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 🙂
my 10 cent advice for you:
I will advice you go for the Avalon over the BMW as your first car. you can add the bmw to your fleet later.
Get the chassis number of the vehicle and get a full report of the vehicle to know the history of the car including accident and flooding, maintenance record.
if this comes out good, do a physical check on the vehicle and look for traces of flooding, accidents and any part recently replaced.
Get a good and trusted mechanic to help you ascertain the condition of the vehicle through a physical inspection and test driving.
