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.

I don't think he is offering a car in this post it looks like he is asking you what you are looking for . As for 3000 he is not sure (that you will find much I imagine).
Cheap second hand cars are not easy to find here, like they are in , NZ and USA/UK etc.
Probably because in Chile you can't import used vehicles, which limits the supply of 2nd hand cars to only what was sold originally new here in Chile. This closed option of cheap used imports is what is also keeping prices higher than what you may be used to in countries that can freely import others old cars, and the fact it is just Chile and often prices are higher than other countries for no reason at all, it is just they way it is.
Like a cappuccino in Puerto Varas is more expensive than New Zealand, when the quality is inferior here and the staff are earning less than NZ how can it still be more expensive ? My guess is that they are not big coffee drinkers here, the coffee culture still isn't that big here, in NZ most people I know may consume 2 or 3 coffees a day here it's possibly only one a day and for a lot fewer people will have more than one. My theory is they have to sell their unsavoury product for a higher price as they are selling less of them , but then that creates its own cycle as people feel it's a rip off for pretty average ordinary coffee most of the time and consume less
In the Lakes Region Chile for 6 years. It looks like New Zealand in some ways, and is nearly at the bottom of the world too, but there the similarities end.

I once got almost that amount when i sold a car with a blown engine. Engine blew because some moron mechanic used bathroom silicone to plug a leak in a radiator pipe rather than replace it.

Anything for $3000 dollars, is probably not going to be good for much besides sleeping in it.
