    Default Buying a car with a credit card

    Is it possible? I am need of a new car. Something used, under $10k, and want to know if I can use my AMEX card to purchase it.

    Anyone done this? Are there dealers in Santiago or Santo Domingo that accept credit cards?

    Besides the usual issues with using a credit card down here, is there anything else I should watch out for?

    USED CAR BUYING CONSULTANTS

    Buying a used car in the DR can be a very daunting undertaking. As is the case in just about every other country, the used vehicle marketplace here is a very predatory ecosystem. This is not a venture which should be undertaken without the assistance and advice of people who are properly equipped to deal with the adversarial forces which always seek to separate the unsuspecting buyer from his wallet, and strive to saddle him or her with a lemon which has been misrepresented as being in pristine condition, mechanically and structurally.
    Our mission is to find you a used car within your budget which will give you the good service and longevity you expect for your money.

    Call Mike at 829 546 3624.

    Happy Motoring.
    That doesn't really answer my question though. Regardless I may be interested in your services.

    yes, that is the ad i referred to..

    i am not sure of exactly what things you might have in your mind. maybe you can throw out some concerns, and i will do my best to address them. as my ad says, the average guy is going to try to give you a royal flucking, and i am here to see that such romance does not happen. i have quite a few happy customers on DR1.

    Hi Gorgon, may be in touch in the next few weeks, but is it possible to use a CC or do you need to have a bank account or to transfer funds from my overseas account?

    I would doubt it..

    I did it once

    FLA in the late 70's..... AMEX
    Times have changed and RD is a different animal

    My last purchase - here - I wired directly to the dealer
    or you can interbank transfer if the $$ are already here

    I bought an SUV with a credit card using an Amex. i was charged a 4% fee on top of the cost. This was back in 2012 at Leonel Auto in Santiago.
