I've just bought a new car: Acura ZDX (honda). It's very luxury and nice, stylish. It's my first car. I really like it.

my first car was a 1964 Buick Lesabre 4 door hardtop I bought for $50 USD. Drove it to California from Wisconsin which is about 2400 miles. It was already nine years old when I bought it and quite rusty with a paint job applied with a brush.

My first car will be a late 1990's BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz or Rover or an early 2000's Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sentra, etc. Because they are excellent cars (here we call it "fierros"), they have a lot of spare parts and they don't pay license plate anymore. I won't buy a national-made car, because they are all a piece of scrap, old designed (We built only the ancient Opel Corsa-based Chevrolet Classic 1.4 and the grumpy Fiat Palio and Fiat Siena) and extremely expensive (A Chevrolet Classic base model is priced about US$ 15.500).

Amusing that you describe some already-extinct local cars as "piece of scrap, old-designed" yet have no issues with foreign cars ~15-27 years old. Wouldn't these latter cars fall foul of emissions or safety regulations nowadays? Can they be certified as roadworthy?

As for the "We built only the ancient ..." part, I believe Argentina is currently producing the following PVs:

Chevrolet Cruze Sedan and Hatchback D2XX
Citroen C4 Lounge
Citroen Berlingo/Peugeot Partner M59
Fiat Palio 326
Ford Focus C346
Honda HR-V (CKD)
Mercedes-Benz Vito W447
Peugeot 308 T71
Peugeot 408 T73
Renault Logan L52
Renault Sandero/Sandero Stepway B52
Renault Fluence
Renault Kangoo X76
Toyota SW4 AN160
Volkswagen Suran

Save for the Kangoo and Berlingo/Partner, these are not very old cars: some are from the mid-2000s, while some are pretty new. Most of these are even exported within Mercosur. I am not debating the perceived quality or value of these vehicles, whatever those might be, simply mentioning that Argentina does not build "only" "ancient" cars.

Yes Dmitra, but it's only my opinion. I better prefer the cars that I've mentioned in my old post, but I know that the national production cars are too bad, not like in the 90's or the 80's. My dad has 2 IME Rastrojero's, 1 Peugeot 505 SRi, 1 Renault 21, 1 Renault Clio Symbol dCi and now, 1 Toyota Corolla SE-G. All except the Clio and the Corolla are national, but the R21 was a very bad car.
I only say that here, they built bad quality cars but priced like first quality cars.
