Our vehicle went kaput for the last time this week...so we need a new one. Problem: I don't have enough cash to buy what we need outright, so I need to finance something. I see that AAA auto does financing for foreigners, but my czech friends tell me they are the worst for odometer rollbacks etc. Of course, everything with a grain of salt....
But in any case, does anybody know of what other dealerships/companies will do financing for foreigners? Preferably with online listings.
Anyone I should stay away from?

Thanks all.

how foreign are you? Do you have a residents permit? If so everyone will lend you money,try GE Money bank true, like all banks they will rip you off. Try CAC and SKOFIN for used Renault Traffic or Transporter. If you are in Prague west look at the VW dealer for used vans as they often have a good selection with guarentees

I will say I bought a used Transporter from AAA and have not had any unexpected problems with it. I had it financed through Santandar and I do regret that.

They are missionaries, as I remember, with US insurance, so I guess no residence permit as such??

, so I would guess if that status is still valid, no-one will give you any credit.

Assuming the interior ministry finishes with our applications sometime soon, we should have dlouhodoby pobyt for the next 2 years.
