Comments: Don't ask Hal how the cosmetics got challenged or I will get in trouble all over again.
For the price, I looked up the car on Kelly's Blue Book and doubled the fair condition price which is right around $5,000. Cars are double here, no gettin' around it. Then Hal looked up the car on ticocarros.com and the cheapest Rav4 is 4,400,000 colones! Which is double our price… hmmmm. Ticos are notorious for starting off negotiations at 50%. All my long time expat and local friends told me so. Maybe that explains it? Those cars are all dealer cars in better shape, so they say, with fewer miles. If you believe a dealer's odometer. Not that I wouldn't.
