How to buy a used car in Israel – Funny Video

The taxes and duties on new cars in Israel are so high, it makes a lot of sense to buy a used car. But I’ve never bought a used car ever, and in Israel, it’s hard to know whom you can trust.

I got a referral from my insurance agent, Yirmi, whom I do trust . So I called Yanky the used car dealer in Jerusalem, and told him that we really liked our Hyundai’s in Canada and could he find us one.

Next day the phone rang and he asked us to meet him at a gas station near Ramat Beit Shemesh.

The whole experience was really funny, including the local gas jockey. But in the end we ended up with a great car, got a great deal (price was about 20% higher than in Canada for the same car – not too bad) and had a lot of fun.

If you are making Aliyah with Nefesh B’Nefesh, especially the GO NORTH program and are interested in the Galilee, Tiberias or Yavne’el… give us a call 718-717-2192 or send an email to shmuel AT villageisrael DOT com

P.S.  I worked really hard to make this video something you’d want to forward to your friends… so please DO!
