Default Import from U.S.

Hi

I have plans to import a car from the U.S.
I live in Sweden and here are the American cars are very very expensive. The only thing that is "cheap" is Volvo, Saab, Mercedes, etc..

Here's my questions and I am grateful if someone suggested that may help:


* How much does it cost an average of a Hummer H2 2004 in good condition?
* How much does it cost an average of a Cadillac V8 Sport Luxury?
* How much does it cost an average of a Chevrolet Tahoe V8 Flexifuel? (2007)
* What can you get for cars in very good condition around 20 000 USD?

I do not know how it works in the U.S., but assuming that the location of the car is crucial, too.
Is it difficult to find the boat transport to Europe / Sweden from the U.S.?

Thanks!

Thumbs up

Sounds like you want some serious grunt!!!!!! look, i live in australia, nd a mate has just imported a 2008 Ford F250 Superduty, it was actually pretty cheap. According to him, the best place to import from is the west coast, i think his was from LA, but i think any big cities, where there is a major port, you should be able to find a fairly cheap way to get itto sweden. If you want i can find out more information for you!!!!
cheers

BTW, for a good H2, about $150 000, they are very expensive.

LA wouldn't really make sense. Sweden is East of the USA. Maybe from NJ/NY.

Wait, what? You live in Sweden and you want one of our huge barges that get roughly 12 to a gallon on a good day? A lot of people over here don't want those damned things...


Well, to answer your questions....you ain't getting any of the barges you want for under 20K unless you're willing to look older. Say, 98-02. That's factoring import costs into the equation.

If you're gonna do that, I suggest you change to a Jeep Wrangler 4.0L HO. Can be had automatic(Blech) or stickshift(YAY), actually somewhat decent in rough conditions if driven properly, and they're much cheaper.

Edit: And they're not all that large. Not really any bigger than the typical hatchback sold over here. Civic size, if you will. Taller, yes, but not any wider or longer. So they should fit onto the roads in Europe, should you venture into town.

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!
