Does anyone have any information about buying a secondhand vehicle in Aruba and the procedure for registration and insurance. I have heard of a car tax how does that work and when does it have to be paid?
All wheel drive - 5 speed manual
86,000 miles / 138,400 kilometers
Well maintained - recent work includes
New cooling system - replaced timing belt also at that time
New battery, tires and wiper blades (less that 1 year old)
Air conditioning, Pioneer stereo, alloy wheels and full size spare tire
Power windows and mirrors
Asking AWG 6,500 and will negotiate.

Reason: car was sold
Basically for a car - there is no 'sales tax' when buying a used car.
The best way to do it is just transfer your license plate at the SIA
building with the new owner.
You have to pay for your license plate (which prob. has some tax
part in it) and insurance is pretty low if you can supply a letter from
your previous/current car insurance stating the last time you were
in an accident . Our premium was pretty low compared to the US.
We had the same coverage as we would in the US.
I'm can't really quote you the amount and i'm sure it depends
on the car you have. Like a BMW would prob. have a higher
insurance rate than an toyota.
Our car insurance company was across the street from the old
tax building in town and started with a "B" - can't remember
the name off hand but we were happy with them.
