Reliable used car dealer?

#3
I went to Centro Automotores (http://www.centroautomotores.com/) to buy my car. I went to the Cordoba location, somewhere around the 3200 block if I recall. They have a new car location, and right across Cordoba they had a used car lot, with more than just Renaults available.

I spent about a month overall looking for a used car. I went to smaller lots, I went to individuals listing their cares in various places. It takes a lot of time to set up a lot of individual appointments to look at a lot of cars - which you should probably do to ensure you are getting a good car at a reasonable deal.

What I found, unlike in the US where I'd bought used cars before, the private individuals selling their cars here don't ask for less than the dealerships are asking for their used cars, within a range of price differentials for both dealerships and individuals (which isn't all that great anyway).

The reason I ended up deciding to buy from a dealership was that I didn't have to do ANYTHING other than fill out some paper to do the title transfer and all. That can get complicated, and Centro Automotores did it all for me and less than a week after paying a deposit, I had my car in hand with legal papers and the Cedula Verde on its way in the mail.

Fines and such that a person accrues while driving here is attached NOT to the driver's license (i.e., the specific person driving) but rather to the car itself. Many times cars have a good amount of debt on them that has to be cleared before the title can be transferred. Not to mention just the bureaucratic crap that has to be dealt with in any case.

Therefore, I took advantage of the car dealership rather than buying from an individual.

Pickups may be a more difficult to find in a lot, though. However, I know there is a place outside the city (almost to Pilar) on Pan Americana ramal Pilar (highway 9). They often had pickups there. There is another place on the Pilar branch, just after the branches split between Pilar and Escobar, before you get to the toll plaza, on the right. It has a number of dealerships on one lot, selling both new and used cars, but I can't remember what it's called. You couldn't miss it if you are driving out there.

Unfortunately, to get out of the city and look (if you're in the city) you need to hire a remis or something I'd think, to be a little mobile.

Yes nice and utilitarian but not as pretty as possibly the most beautiful car ever the "Cisitalia" and also authentically Argentine

Piero Dusio build FIAT 1500S Coupes with a special body by Fissore in Argentina under the name Cisitalia. This is after Dusio disappeared from Europe. Some had Osca engines designed by the Maserati brothers.

Do me a favour if you ever see one please let me know - even a wrecked body shell can be worked on!

I would agree the Cisitalia is more beautiful, but the Justicialista is the ultimate ARGENTINE car- I have a friend who is rebuilding one, hope to ride in it someday.

I often see really nice 60's Fiats around town, including the occasional 2300 coupe, which is gorgeous- not as nice as the Cisitalia, but a very striking car nonetheless. 60's cars command pretty high prices in Argentina, as they are loved. Even green Falcons can bring a pretty penny.
