I buy a car, I don't consider it an investment like stocks and bonds.
That said, poor condition roads will chew up a machine. Lexus owners (so far) give high satisfaction ratings so that may be your car. For me I think I'd look again at the Nissan Rogue (nice equipped) and pocket the savings.
I'm looking for the best SUV for me. I live in a country where roads are extremely rough and are in bad conditions.
I have thought of the BMW X5, Lexus NX/GX, and came across VW Atlas. Currently I am a single person. I liked the value of the Atlas but many people told me it's best utilized for family use, and the VW Touareg would be better for me (I don't like a car filled with electronic gadgets due to previous experiences.)
What SUV should I purchase for my daily drive as a single person in poor condition roads? I want the best VALUE (but also luxurious) for me. My heart is telling me to go for the X5 but my head is telling me Lexus would be a better investment.
