Expat Files – 03.19.17

#1- When Gringos end up in Latin court.
Yes, you can get into legal trouble anywhere, anything can happen no matter which country you might be living or hanging. Too bad these days almost no one gets through life without initiating or getting sucked into some kind of legal action. So then, what about getting pulled into a Latin lawsuit or ending up in a Latin court? Should you be frightened or worried? Well today, appearing in Latin court, is the subject of Expat Eddie’s latest crazy gringo adventure. Yes, Eddie’s re-surfaced, this time with another “boots on the ground” story that could only happen to a Gringo.

#2- Money, payments, credit, loans and Latinos

#3-By popular demand, today we discuss the rock bottom prices one might pay for a basic vehicle in decent condition. That is, without considering the cosmetics(which will surely be deplorable), what would be a reasonable low-end price to pay and still get good, reliable transportation that will last a few years on those crazy Latin roads.

#4-Most of the older cars in Latin America are stick-shift (mechanica) and as such are a bit cheaper than cars with automatic transmissions. Can you drive a stick? If you do you’ll not only save some money on the purchase price but you’ll also get a bit better gas mileage- not to mention stick shift transmissions are cheaper and easier to repair.
