It's listed at $48k but with my connection to my relative in car sales I could get it for about $43k all in with GST (after playing some games with financing kickbacks etc). Maybe I could add an extended warranty onto that. This seems like a very good deal.
Alternatively I could wait for more deals to pop up and maybe reconsider other cars like 2020 Highlander Hybrid, etc. I can also lease a leather Pilot for like $550 a month now that there is 0%. Do you think this Q7 is a good buy right now or I should wait more for car sales to collapse? I won't negotiate with my relative as he has already helped me in the past.
-My current cars are 2010 Venza and 2020 Honda Clarity (see "The new whip has arrived" thread ). We are pregnant and always planned to get a 3 row when baby on the way (2 large dogs as well). Venza is spouse's commuter car and for dumb reasons relating to living and working in AB, spouse is not going to drive Clarity to work as originally planned. On top of that we talked about getting a trailer so looking for something to tow with, but now we are thinking we will wait until next year for the trailer.
-Whether I need the car is questionable, though I can afford it. Spouse's commute is a pretty safe one but I am annoyed Clarity is sitting at home / being used by me and am a bit of a safety freak. Venza is not nearly as safe and would prefer spouse to be driving something very safe on commute. Thing is, once maternity leave is on the Clarity could be used for pretty much all day to day driving (at low running cost!). We only drive about 25,000kms a year total between both vehicles right now. So cars can last a very long time.
-From a powertrain perspective I no longer care much about speed (esp. in family vehicle) and for day to day the 2020 Highlander Hybrid would be perfect for me but I don't think it will do the job towing, even with a small fibreglass trailer like I'd like to get, as no mechanical connection to the rear wheels. Plus it's not as comfortable. The Audi is obviously a joy to drive and spouse loves the massaging seats, etc. Lack of a spare and runflats seem super expensive and annoying for towing (guess I'd just toss a winter wheel and tire in the trailer as a spare).
