Just found this community and am grateful for the advice shared so far.
My daughter is turning 16 and getting my hand me down 2010 volvo s80 with 165k miles so I am now in the market for a new used car.
I have a pretty long (>1hr) commute each way so I need something comfortable, reliable and willing to upgrade to a luxury class. I have looked at the Avalon, A6, Genesis and Lexus ES and GS. However, I want to buy from a private seller and really dont see those available on the searchable sites. I am willing to pay up to 25k but having trouble finding which model years to avoid. Typically I buy cars that are 3-5 yrs old but I am a bit overwhelmed now and just looking for some guidance.
Thanks for any advice in advance.
Oh, I am in the Richmond, VA area.
