In general, if you are going to the USA, it seems cheaper to buy a car for $ 1 to travel around different states. The choice in this price category is simply huge.

But not everything is so good in the USA. The tax on cars there is really low - about 6% of the cost of the car per year, but insurance is the cheapest - $ 1 for the same period. You can't drive without it! If the police see such a car on the street, it will be evacuated to a car impound.

Parts in the US are inexpensive, but repairs can make serious holes in the budget. That's why they sell cheap cars with minor breakdowns - repairs will cost at least half the cost of the car, and this is at best!

Well, it's one thing to study ads, and quite another to see cars with your own eyes! It is possible that there are many hidden problems that they simply decided to keep silent about.
