I agree the comparison would be Ideal for NEW edges, but alas I have the paycheck I have and used is the price point for me. A lot of folks buying used edges of this type and mileage and since one is all city driving and one is all highway. the comparison is similar. Blueberry has 19K yearly mileage (most likely rural/city type) Lullubelle had an average yearly mileage of about 22K when purchased. Both most likely rural/city mixed driving with Lullubelle getting a slightly higher amount of highway. Both single owner vehicles from new purchases. Both apparently had moderate maintenance, but no transmission flushes or cabin air filter changes. Both are due coolant changes. one is due sparkplugs and PCV since I am in there.
Lullubelle is getting new brakes all around tomorrow morning and a full brake line fluid change.
We will see how the driving conditions and mileage works out. I am betting on Lullubelle getting new suspension parts. Blueberry may develop other issue in relation to city driving stresses. Time will tell. Not scientific or exactly a great comparison, but might be interesting to watch to see how things progress.
In my case, I would have an interesting dichotomy. My 2008 was bought new. The 2011 was bought with 18199 on the clock. So, I am guessing I would have the best of both worlds.
