I bought a 1997 ES 300 brand new and kept it for 11 yrs with no problems, before I sold it to a friend.
Dream car has always been to own a LS model.
I got my local dealer in GA to agree to order me a 2014 LS460 F-Sport for $1,000.00 over invoice. I could probably have it by December.
Lexus LS, $81,371 invoice plus $1,000.00 = $82,371 plus tax, tile,tags
Hyundai Equus $62,500 plus tax, tile,tags
$19,129 savings buying Equus
First time I have ever ever been in a Hyundai dealership. I went an test drove a 2014 Hyundai Equus with the Ultimate package. Car has all the bells and whistles and a few more than the LS. I have to say I'm pretty impressed, and I am picky.
Hyundai dealer Sales Manager was very nice. Told me he would sell me the car for $62,500, that's $1,000 under invoice.
Hyundai is inching closer on the tails of Lexus and other European car companies.
I got to decide soon.
