After a few months of lots of hand gestures, writing prices on paper and making a fool of ourselves in general, we finally bought a car last weekend. We searched in our town, we went to Daegu with friends and by ourselves, and we finally went to Busan.
The car is 8 years old, but it only has 71,000 KM (about 42,000 miles) on it. Because it had one owner and a digital odometer (harder to cheat with these), it looks and drives great, we think it will last us as long as we are here. At $3000 it was more expensive than the other cars we were looking at, but it had one feature we really wanted: the dealer would buy it back at a fixed price...about $2000.
