Default 2001 Lexus Ls430 or 2006 Acura Tl?

Ok I'm turning 15 and a half soon so I'm getting my temps as well as a car. I'm looking at both the 01 ls430 and 04-06 Tl. I have been driving since the age 12 so please no that's to nice for a teen. I been saving up for 2 years and have $4000 plus my parents are givin me $3000. So I have found both in my price range. I'm in love with cars and refuse to drive a bucket if I don't have to. So which one is better ls or tl? They both have around 150k miles and are very clean. But the lexus costs 1k more. Please help?

Btw I make $500 a month after taxes and my parents are payin my car insurance so I can afford repairs and gas.0

Honda/Acura > Toyota/Lexus

Simple decision.

Honda products handle and accelerate well, Toyota products are torquey but don't accelerate that fast, they just give you the illusion that they do. Pound for pound any Honda product will out perform any Toyota product on the skid pad. By displacement Honda motors make more horsepower than Toyota motors do. The only tiny advantage Toyota has over Honda is that Toyotas are a little, itty bitty, teensy weensy bit more reliable overall than Hondas.

No, you don't. A new set of tires probably sets you back most of two months of your pay.

You plan on starving during that time???

Both cars are good if maintained. I own a 06 acura tsx, bought new. Have all the maintenance done by acura dealers. It is not cheap but the car has 158,000+ miles. Did you have the cars checked out by a trusted mechanic. Do they have service records. What is the condition of the tires, interior, exterior. Good luck
