Price of a used vehicle in mexico

Can't Post | Private Reply
I'm selling both my vehicles before I move. I'm wondering what the price range is for a used pickup truck,make not too important, year between 1990 and now. Do they have used car lots in Chapala area, do you have to go to Guad to get one?

I don't know the price of used vehicles in the Chapala area, but we chose to do the same when we moved to Puerto Vallarta. Earlier this summer, we bought a very nice 2003 Nissan double cab pickup with only 32,000 kilometers for $100,000MXP. We found the truck in Mano-a-Mano, a local free classified paper similar to Nickel Ads. The previous owner kept meticulous records and cared for the truck very conscientiously. Unfortunately, I can't compare the price to US prices because this model was not sold in the US. Transfering the title, getting it registered, etc. cost about $250 US, and would have been impossible if we had not solicited the help of a Mexican friend to run interference for us. Our Spanish simply isn't good enough. but it is getting better. There are relatively fewer foreign-plated cars in the Vallarta area, so we feel more comfortable driving a Mexican-plated car. Hope this gives you a little encouragement....

El Muro also has on-line classified ads, but I lost the site.

To answer your 'used car dealer' question, yes there is at least one..... S&S Auto owned by a nice gringo on the Chapala/Ajijic carretera. As for price I don't have personal experience but I understand that 1) the price vs the US for a similar vehicle will be 'quite a bit' higher, and 2) Lakeside will typically be higher than Guadalajara for the 'same' vehicle.
