I'm not trying to say anything bad about buying a new one if that is what you want to do.I'm just saying I saved $5,000 on mine buying it used. Even driving a couple hundred miles to save several thousand dollars wouldn't be a bad deal.
For only $5000 less then a new one for someone else's possible problems. With the better financing deals and warranty on new, I'd say you'd have been farther ahead buying new.
I personally wouldn't touch used with 30k on it for less the $10,000 less then new. But thats me.
We got my daughter a 09 in 2010 with 10,000klm for $22k, the 09 sticker price was $32k new on that unit.
