**UPDATE** some used car options - need some advice please!
Dealer manager from AutoEpix called me back regarding my google review. Will post details in thread.
***UPDATE Feb 22****
So I literally just walked out of Auto Epix dealership (dufferin/lawrence).
I was taking a look at this guy right here and I really like it.
http://www.autotrader.ca/go/5-50547888. Buddy wanted to crunch numbers first before a test drive. Usually I'd fight it but I thought wth. It's listed for $18,888, let's see where he goes. Not many of the Infiniti Q70 on the market. Matter of fact, autotrader is pulling up only two of them and there's a huge price difference between the two. This one is much cheaper than the other.
I offered $17,500 and even went up to $18 and buddy kept absolutely firm. ($18,888 + $595 safety).
Some things to note: the carfax says it's an Ontario registered vehicle, but most early service records are showing Orlando, FL. Is this normal?
There was a "Glass Service" claim under accidents for $1300 in 2015. Dealer said they replaced the windshield.
Lastly, there are 4 owners total. The last 2 were Dec 2020, and Jan 2021.
Can you guys share some insight on this info? What do you think?
Initially I was tunnel visioned on a Lexus GS, but I've recently opened up my options. I've expanded my search to a few more vehicles. My choices are from all corners of the globe..... I know. I do need the space, hence the suv choices, but I can do with a good sized 4dr sedan as well. Have 3 children, one in a toddler seat and one of which is a teen so hell be driving his own vehicle within the next year anyways. If I can get some insight, specifically from those who have had first hand experience with any of these vehicles, I'd appreciate the help. Mainly reliability, quality and maintenance expense. Is it a good choice or not, and why?
As for my budget, let's just say I started out saying I'm going for something around 14-20k. (Santa fe XL, Accord), and now I'm looking at 30K vehicles. I'm sure you guys know how that goes lol. Ultimately I want family space and power for the cheapest price. Those are my main 2 wants. I can push 30k+, but I'd rather not. I'm not too picky with Interior design and up to date features.
Thanks for the knowledge in advance.

(I've also been checking out a few bmw 3 and 5 series but I've been reading that they are very expensive to maintain with repairs. Correct me if I'm wrong.
