that’s only two years old…that’s not too old. Most limos are older than that I would think. It’s not like they change a lot.

What are you concerned about? The interior being worn-looking? Why don’t you ask to see the particular limo you would be using and then you would know what you would be getting.

There is a limo company in the town where I live that has vintage limos, and they are fantastic.  Beautiful interior and exterior, and updated inside with all the modern conveniences.  I don’t think that limo companies turn over their stock like rental car places do (where would they sell them?) so it’s probably relatively common to get a car that’s not brand new.  But if you’re concerned, ask to go take a look.

well here’s the thing.. would you consider a 2006 or 2007 car "old"?  I mean I have a Jeep that is a 2002 model that still looks pretty fabulous.  Now I understand that the wear and tear on a limo is different because people don’t treat them as well as they would their own cars, but the limo also isn’t subjected to every day use as a car is.  I’m sure the limo company cleans the limos out after every use and tries to maintain them as best as possible.  Have you been able to find reviews on the company on the internet?  Do you know anyone in LA who could check it out for you?

Don’t know if this helps, but the limo is the part I remember least about the wedding.  If I could have cut one thing, I probably would have ditched the limo.  I don’t think anyone noticed/cared and it would have been just as easy to have carpooled.

Since you’re looking long distance, ask the company for references of previous customers. Ask about the limo’s appearance, and more importantly ask about the drivers (appearance, timeliness, manner). I think whether it gets there on time with a courteous driver is more important than whether it looks brand-spanking new (and 2006 and 2007 are pretty new, frankly).
