Anytime you’re on the highway and see an Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lexus, Mercedes or Porsche pass you at twice your speed, you may think they are wasting their money on expensive cars that do the same job that your sedan does. While this may seem to be the case, it’s actually quite a different scenario. You may feel like a money-saving rock star when you drive off the lot of a regular car dealer, but the real geniuses are the ones who leave the used luxury car lots after spending the same amount of money. Here’s why:
What value can you put on your life? None, whatsoever. This is the most powerful selling point that any salesman who knows what they’re talking about can give you. While you may be driving this year’s five-star crash rated sedan, this is only in retrospect to the fact that your sedan probably isn’t going to even graze the speeds that a luxury car will dwell in regularly, which we will cover later. Actually…
Well you probably are going to tell your wife and kids that yeah, this Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lexus, Mercedes or Porsche can easily push 140 mph on the track at half throttle, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be using it. (unless you’re at, Motor Sports Ranch and Eagles Canyon Raceway near Plano) But in all seriousness, a 2009 consumer reports survey that evaluated over 350 luxury cars came to this conclusion:
- 6 new luxury cars had at least 300 HP minimum and cost under $30K
- 52 new luxury cars had at least 300 HP minimum and cost more than $30K
- The highest-ranking new luxury car in that category was BMW’s M-line which brought horsepower ranging from 400 HP to 500 HP
Now keep in mind that these are prices for new luxury cars in 2009. If you’re looking for a used Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lexus, Mercedes or Porsche in Plano, you can expect to find these very models and years at European Motors’ Plano location. Using the experts at European Motors for your used luxury car search will get you great prices. Speaking of which…
Another great feature that’s not on the list of vehicle specs is the amazing resale value that they carry with them. In an economy where cars can lose up to 80% of their value in just three years, some of the best value-retaining luxury cars like Audi’s A5 can carry 60% of their value after 3 years and as much as 44% after a long 5 year cycle. Who’s the genius now? You are when you visit European Motors in Plano. With all those savings you can use them on maintenance costs, right? Wrong!
This is another excellent quality that luxury cars are offered alongside of. While your plain ol’ sedan dealer can give you the “road hazard warranty Plan A or plan B,” European Motors offers a wide range of maintenance warranties as well as no-deductible warranties and unlimited mileage warranties; all for extremely reasonable yearly costs! Ask your sales representative about how you can cover your Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lexus, Mercedes or Porsche driving off the lot.
