Cars are expensive. Try carsinspain in torre Pacheco Paul has a website. He sorts out all the paperwork and insurance. Be wary buying private 2nd hand. You would need to find out the car has no debt or fines.

There is a 2nd hand dealer by the garden centre on A.

Hi

       Totally agree Paul at https://www.carsinspain.es/ highly recommend him, Spanish cars are more expensive but Paul will source a good car and sort out all the paperwork.

Yes Paul is probably ok if there aren't any problems with the car but if there are he isn't the most sympathetic or helpful guy.

Hi 

we have just purchased a car and looked at a large number of options and decided to buy as far away from Camposol as possible as prices near to Camposol seem to get higher and higher overvaluing what is effectively scrap or near as dam it 

I would suggest that you spread your options over a large area, buying privately carries a higher risk unless you know the system well, there are plenty of options to look at 

I hope you get the deal that you want just be careful as unfortunately non locals are seen as easy pickings by locals of all nationalities

WARNING

stay the hell away from cars in spain, I purchased from him last year and my god I wished I didn't.

The owner is a typical car salesman, tells you everything you want to hear. Except the problems my car had & then didn't want to rush to sort it ( but was very quick to take my money )

I even said I would take him to court if my car wasn't sorted asap. His reply was this.

You can try if you like, but your get nowhere in Spain with it. Then he blocked my number & I had to get my wife to deal with him.

Eventually got the car about 12 weeks after paying in full.

Don't buy from here......
