    2016 Touring VS 2018 EX-L Nav/RES

    Looking for advice in our van shopping! Our budget is between $27K-$30K before tax and title. In that price range it looks like we could afford a 2016 Touring with around 36,000 miles or a 2018 EX-L Nav/RES with 45,000 miles. I am torn between what option would be better for us to look for. We have a few factors to consider. First, our garage door clearance is only 94 1/4 inches wide. The 2016 is 91.5 mirror to mirror and the 2018 is 92.3 mirror to mirror. I have tried to put in a friend’s 2016 and it was tight but doable. Second, we plan to drive the van for 5-6 years and I put about 12,000 miles on my vehicles per year. My concerns with the ‘16 is that it is the old model now. My concerns with the ‘18 is that it would be too wide for my garage and that it was the first year of the new model with some “new model issues” and high mileage. We have found a ‘16 touring that fits our wishlist, but at the top of our budget. Just not sure if we should wait and find an ‘18 or go with the ‘16? Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated from those who know these vans better than me.

    Cash transaction or finance? Reason I ask is if finance, especially if no money down, it may be worth considering a 12K mile per 3 year lease. May have virtually the same payment as a 5 year purchase at $30K and a new van would be under warranty the entire time, so no out of pocket repair, tires, brakes, etc. Since the Touring Elite model was added you really don't see that many Touring models sold, and that's because it isn't that much of an upgrade over an EX-L NAV/RES.

    Edit...there was no EX-L NAV/RES for '16. There was EX-L NAV or EX-L RES and if you wanted both NAV & RES you had to go to the Touring. Obviously they brought the EX-L NAV/RES back for '18+.

    I didn't think there was ever a EX-L NAV/RES. You want both, you get a Touring.

    I would ask Amy, what do you want or need in a van?
