    Default I am looking for a new car. 2006

    Kia perhaps or something you see around a lot. Low milage or brand new, great shape. Moving down to Cabarete Sept. 10th 2006 - Might have to go to Santo Domingo if need be to buy one. Any ideas? Thanks a million !!

    I would stick with a Toyota, Mitsubishi or Nissan personally.
    Lots of them about, plenty of parts and dealers that can fix or service etc.

    I would wait until you actually arrive. You cannot do anything from a distance.

    I concur with Robert on this. When you arrive, go see Rocky and take a trip to Espaillat Motors in Moca. People in my family have been buying vehicles from them for more than five decades..Word.

    You can also go to one of the largest importers, Ochoa, in Santiago. that guy buys whole boatloads of vehicles...

    Daihatsu, Nissan, Toyota, Mitsubishi and other Korean and Japanese makers have a good reputation.

    I am thrilled with my Daihatsu Terios. It's cheap, easy to maintain (very popular in the DR) and has that great Japanese quality and reliability. I strongly recomment it. - D

    youd probably fly in the mechanic with the parts and rent a garage for him to use. if you can afford the car you can afford the service.

    I too saw that car in Boca Chica around two years ago, just driving around, I figured it was some baseball players ride.

    Some middle-aged Italian guy owns it. I think he lives in Boca Chica.

    BTW: The photo was taken in Boca Chica, across the street from the Azzurra Hotel (2 blocks from the police station) on San Rafael.

    There are so many Hummers, porche, ferraris and lamborginis that there has to be some special repair shops to cater to these clients. I bet in santo domingo there are a few places.
