I will be in TRNC for 3 months later in the year and will be looking at buying a car, at the moment it's costing me a fortune in rentals, and with the intention of spending 6 months a year over there want a good second hand vehicle (preferably Japanese) that won't cost an arm and a leg to run.

Thanks guys, I always feel that word of mouth and recommendations are a good starting point. I'll let you know how I get on.

the dealers here work on HUGE margins (typical 3,000 profit on a 15,000 car).



do yourself a favour and find a cash strapped Brit who is going back to blighty and needs to sell his pride and joy - then HAGGLE !

Nick:

Thanks for the advice, I did sell cars for a short span in my career and know what profits can be made!

I suppose that I am looking for the easy option of buying through a dealer who may be able to sort the paperwork an registration of the vehicle. But with the help of 44, am sure it wouldn't be too difficult to get advice on what to do.

Are there any cash strapped Brits reading this thread that want to give their car to a loving home?

Be careful what you buy in the way of Jap cars. When it comes to servicing you may have problems. Choose a make of car that is used by the car rental companies and you will then able to get cheap and efficient serving/repairs locally.

Thanks AJ, it's little things like that which are really helpful, and I never thought about.

I'm open to suggestions. Having owned and traded jap cars, I know their reliability. So far in TRNC I have hired Ford/Seat and Hyundai, all good vehicles, but I have a personal reason for disliking Ford, know nothing much about Seat, but loved the Hyundai (and they're usually a lot cheaper than Toyota). I'm slowly narrowing my search.

Is there a strapped cash Brit wanting to sell a Hyundai over there? Cash available!!!
