    we know petrol,s about half the price as it is over here,.. but what price the cars them selves, how do they compare to blighty? are new cars cheaper or what, are there bargains to be had in the used car area. do cars depreciate as much as over here.

    any feed back welcome.:skeptical:

    Hiya

     

    Cars are not too badly priced,unless you want some of the European makes such as BMW,Mercedes and Audi.

     

    Second hand cars hold their money longer as cars last longer here.Well the bodywork does as there is a lot less rust.

     

    I've known quite a few people buy brand new as the nearly new prices are nearly the same.

     

    Have a look at these sites to give you an idea on price.

    Thanks Al

    $680 fully comp is great compared to what we pay in Northern Ireland (some British insurers won't even insure us). We pay for the privelege of having loads of joy riders and whip lash claims

    You have a good choice of cars & dealerships here whether you buy new or not. It all depends what you want to pay. The links Tyke sent you are great to give you the idea of prices in $ for specific makes.

     

    We have a Nissan X-Trail & we brought it after a week of arriving, its 4 years old this year. I think my insurance was $420 fully comp with Budget.com
