    cars.com is the best site to find used cars for cheap in the u.s.

    This is the cheapest one

    http://www.cars.com/go/search/detail.jsp?tracktype=usedcc&csDlId=&csDgId=&listingId=107730607&listingRecNum=0&criteria=sf1Dir%3DDESC%26stkTyp%3DU%26mdId%3D20394%26rd%3D100000%26crSrtFlds%3DstkTypId-feedSegId-mdId-prcId%26zc%3D70448%26prcId%3D28580%26rn%3D0%26PMmt%3D0-1-0%26stkTypId%3D28881%26sf2Dir%3DASC%26sf1Nm%3Dprice%26sf2Nm%3Dmiles%26isDealerGrouping%3Dfalse%26rpp%3D50%26feedSegId%3D28705&aff=national&listType=1

    Your going to have to have it transported to the shipping company,and then ship it to Europe.

    Are you sure you want something like the 300C it eats gas like crazy(there's no diesel us cars) 18 Liter per 100Km.

    1.) You need to be more specific as to what Country you want to import the car too. 2.) You need to find out what the laws are for having to modify the car to meet the Government standards for the country that you want to import the car into (smog standards and etc). Also, you need to be more specific on the features that you want on the car Year, features and etc 3.) you need to find out what the taxes, tariffs, shipping charges are going to csost you in order to import the car into the country that you want to import it into. Getting the car at a fair value in the States (U.S.) is not the problem, the obstacle is going to be the first 3 items. Thank

    thank you guys for your help , i find this one on autotrader too :
    http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-...EDAN&listingId=344810060&listingIndex=2&Log=0

    http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-...EDAN&listingId=347223990&listingIndex=4&Log=0

    but i dont know how much it will cost to export here to my country....
    about the laws here the owner have to transfer the papers on my name and we have to pay a big fee (customs) about 1000$
    then after the papers and so are done and the fee have been payed we can continue with plates, insurance and the check test for car status....

    Probably not worth it, to the price of the car youll have to add: -Transport -Customs -License plate change to your countrys specs -Maybe some modifications to the car so it meets the country's standards laws (lights color tones,emissions, etc) -Paper Work in both countries -Taxes -Mot Do your math first, or better contact a local reliable import car company. In the case of a new car youll save in taxes if you had a friend that could have the car in usa 6 months. Normally it will only be worth it on expensive and exclusive cars.

    Won't you also have to pay a higher registration tax due it being a high fuel consumption car?

    Car cost + shipping = 10%cct

    tax payable on first entry in eu ststate then you will have to pay vat at whatever the rate is in France.

    For registration you will need to check with the French ministry of transport some eu states only require an inspection others require an Sva single vehicle application test.

    And what happns if you get it and it doesn't work right, something is wrong. You may have to spend alot of money on repairs,since you aren't able to check it out in person before buying it.

    All American cars are going to use gasoline. You could go with a Tesla, but thats electric and is not going to perform as well as a gasoline or diesel powered engine.

    If you call a Chrysler dealership in America I'm sure they can facilitate the entire process. Just find the biggest and best Chrysler dealership... better yet you can just call the factory. They're probably headquartered in Detroit, MI.

    Good Luck

    Your not going to get a u.s. vehicle that is disiel unless you want to import a f250 and that will use a ton of diesel.

    The point about the UK cars is that there are thousands of ex US LHD cars already tax paid and registered over here. You would probably be able to pick one up here ready to go for the same money and less hassle. You could drive it across europe if you want to.

    You need to find out the import restrictions in the country you want to import to. Some countries have strict regulations. For example I used to import into the netherlands which had relaxed laws..From there I could move the car anywhere around europe easily enough

    Big Car carrier PPC ships wont unload in Albania so you will probably have to trans ship at extra cost.

    The majority of US stuff is Gas so you are looking at the wrong place if you want diesel. For older stuff like the Chrysler you would have a good chance of buying from Japan where there are more established export agents and dedicated shipping. (Japanese import lots of modern us cars but re export them for cheap as they get older 2005-2008)

    I can help you find cheap Crown Victoria in the United States for under $1000 usually. Big fast car like Chrysler.

    You won't find diesel cars here really.. until a few years ago it was not even legal to sell them here in Massachusetts.

    As for shipping to Europe I am not sure but it can not be that hard.
