    Apologies if this has been asked before. did a search and couldnt find an answer.
    I'm looking to buy a 2013 LR2 with 82,241 miles for $17,244. financing it over 72 months
    Ive done some research and couldnt really find anything bad about this yr.
    So.. Am I crazy to buy it? If yes, do I buy extended warranty? If no, why should I stay away? All help will be greatly appreciated. I dont want
    to make a $17000 mistake and potentially more in repairs. Thanks!

    The only issue I see with your plan is the 72 month loan. Its a used vehicle that will still lose money. Average auction prices for a 2015 with same mileage is 13k, so at 17k you are going to be upside down the entire time you are making payments.

    It would be financially risky to finance any used vehicle over 72 months, consider that if it is a stretch then maintaitence is going to need to be considered also.
