Our inherited 1998 Megane is showing signs that its long deserved retirement is soon due.
We have never bought a car before in Argentina and we are literally in the dark. I have always heard that used cars have a great resale value, but I have no idea whether it also means that it is better to buy used. My husband's family says that prices shown on the internet are not reliable (like for houses and about anything else here...)
Is there any advantage we may have if we pay cash (no installments)? Should we look at new or used cars?
Any pitfalls to avoid?
We just need a car to move around in the city and take an occasional trip to Cordoba or Mar del Plata. We do not have a parking space and we don't want a large car that would be difficult to park in the city. We have no issue in driving a stick but we can also drive an automatic car (nice!).
Any suggestion is welcome!
