Was looking for an 'owned' CPO, not a leased one. Found a good deal 400 miles away. So happy w/ this car. I was coming off of a 4 cyl. camry that I owned since new, for 17 years. So, I was ready for a nice retirement car. This one only had 31k on it when I got it. Now only 32. I'm officially a Lexus fanboy now. Was in the plan to eventually get one after I retired. Where I used to sell was in rough neighborhoods, so ppl were constantly running into the Camry. Not places I wanted to drive a nice Lexus. Wish they'd have kept the CD changer. Many nice options came w/ this. CPO is the way to go. I could have gone new, but the hit is large in the first 3 or 4 years. .9% financing was the cherry on top. Why pay cash when there's basically free money. I guess I'm a deferred gratification type of guy as I could have easily done this many years ago. Compared to the 4 banger, this is a rocket. lol
So I live in a Chicago but I drove to Milwaukee to buy the car. They came down $5000 on the car. I purchased the car on November 10th and it was snowing outside. I am sure sales were low and maybe the supply demand is different in Milwaukee compared to Chicago. The same exact vehicle was selling for much more in Chicago and the dealers in Chicago were not as willing to negotiate tot he price I was asking for.
