A Terracan and the Volcano

Hi Russ,

2007 Hyundai Terracan

It’s been a very busy week for me since I came back but I wanted to take the time to thank you and Kattia for the truly wonderful and reasonable service you provide in helping us extranjeros find cars to buy in Costa Rica.

It was a completely painless and smooth process but this was entirely due to your wonderful availability via email to prepare for this by advising me and answering all my questions.

My advice for all prospective customers is to take advantage of your availability to define as precisely as possible exactly what they are looking for, and get all their ducks in a row as far as payment modalities and insurance needs. This will save their time as well as yours.

Kattia was absolutely a joy to work with and thanks to our advance preparation she had managed to put together a list where the car that best suited my needs as defined was at the top of the list, the first one we saw, and at the end of the day the one we bought. It came from an obscure little lot that I never could have found by myself. For the curious, it was a 2007 Terracan with 34,000 km that looked and drove like new. We visited and drove several cars, bought it, insured it, and had accessories like a huge grille protector (Mataburros) and car top luggage rack installed, all in one day.

I will recommend you to all I know in Arenal, and you may provide my email to those who would like to communicate with me directly.

Thank you, and a big hug to Kattia,
