7 Steps to find the hottest used car deals in Ecuador

7 Steps to find the hottest used car deals in Ecuador

“This country never ceases to amaze me.” I thought when I saw a 2009 model of a vehicle just $1000 less than the 2012 version as I used-car-shopped earlier this week. Due to the high import tariffs and restrictions on vehicles, cars are not only more expensive than they are in the US, they also […]
