    I dunno.

    Seems to me the "best option" is knowing how to look for, evaluate and buy a car for yourself without third-party assistance.

    More than that is provided. Some people do not want to be bothered driving around from dealership to dealership, looking at tons off inventory. Having someone narrow down the search , for me, was worth the price of admission.

    On top of that, If your knowledgeable about buying a car, its still great to get a second opinion. When I needed back surgery, I went to arguably, the best spine surgeon in the United States. I still went for a second opinion, just incase he missed something. In the US Normally when buying a used car its always advisable to bring it to a mechanic. Is it not? (Unless maybe your a mechanic...) Would that not be even more important in here??

    Not easy finding the right connections.... that's for sure

    As for a mechanic - I had several references... and they were right as it turned out

    Someone should monetize a Blog and put in reputable service providers in the Dominican Republic for expats. I'd pay for that service
