    Default WANTED: Small SUV, Truck!!!

    Howdy all. Looking for a mechanically sound small SUV or truck. Must have AC! I really don't care what it looks like, as long as it is mechanically sound and the AC works!! If you know of a place where one can go, that would be great as well. Were in Managua. Thanks

    I have a 2007 Mitsubishi L200 diesel pick up that needs a new home. Send me a PM if interested. Cold AC, simple as can be. It is well maintained and a fuel miser.

    Talked to Renco on the phone and it sounds like a super truck. Only 1 problem in my wife's eyes---its a standard!! She said no to that! Which is unfortunate as I think it would be super. Thanks Renco for taking time to chat onte phone, muy gracias!!

    You WILL have a hell of a time finding a truck with an automatic in Nica.. On that you can be assured..

    You may have to limit your choices to Large NA pickups if that is a drop dead requirement...

    We have a few other options from Embassy people. I was hoping for the truck,lol but got to keep the misses happy!! She is on the short side, so she may have difficulty reaching the pedals too,lol

    I would bet the seat slides back and forth. And I would bet good money she can chew chewing gum and walk at the same time.

    When in Rome do likewise.

    Believe me I have tried to convince her!! I think she has her mind set on a 2002 Rav 4 all wheel drive!! Its an automatic and figures the AWD will come in handy on some of the roads outside Managua! But the big sticking point is the standard transmission.

    The main problem you'll encounter with an automatic transmission here in N is trying to find a mechanic that knows how to work on it "properly."

    I agree with ya!! But with crazy Managua traffic, she doesn't want to drive a Manual,lol She is the 1 that will be driving it 99% of the time, so its her choice

    Contact my friends, Nadine and Johan, at Details Management. They've got a nice selection of vehicles available; Johan is Nicaraguan and bilingual. They've got a FB page at http://www.facebook.com/#!/detailsmanagement?sk=photos that shows some of the vehicles for sale.

    I'll send you a PM with Nadine's email so you can contact her directly if you'd like. She's a Canadian, been in country a long time, and is one of the very few people I trust in this country.
