Need a Car in June

Post by sophiembower » Tue Jan 23, 2018 6:48 pm

I am travleing to Chile for the 2018 summer. I am looking to buy a car under 3000 that can be used for a few months, and that we can sleep in. Trucks with toppers, or any full size vehicles are preferred. If anyones selling something that we can buy in June let me know!! thanks!!

June is winter here. Not summer.

For $3000 you will spend all your time getting a RUT, buying a car, registering it, fixing it and selling it.

And not much time vacationing.

I had to spend 3.000.000 CLP for a reasonable condition Peugeot 206 after looking at around 400 odd cars over a week and then spent 500.000 CLP getting it up to proper condition with maintenance that had never been done, timing belts/water pump etc. Etc.

I sold it for the same amount to years later though.

Only the plus sides mechanics labour fees are very cheap, just got to know a good one you can trust. So cheap in fact I couldn't of saved money if I did the jobs myself.
