Used car/SUV examples and prices?

Postby colorado2rein » Wed Nov 18, 2009 5:05 am

I'm trying to get an idea of what will be available for used vehicles in Dhahran / Ras Tanura. I understand there is an intranet which would become available once you are hired. Would anyone be willing to post a sampling of the vehicles available there? Years, models, asking prices... with contact info deleted, of course. Or even just what you bought, when and what you paid for it approx. It would be much appreciated and helpful in making decisions as to selling or shipping our cars.

Are listings typically quick to sell, or do things hang out on the classifieds for quite awhile? High turnover in used car sales?

Thanks in advance!

These are from the classified, no history and you might have srun in some problems.
there are a view dealers in this area who import cars direct from the USA.
e.g. bought GMC Yukon XL Delenci for 70000 sar from 2005 with 40.000 miles

Most car dealers are notorious for not answering emails or have English speaking sales people answering the phone, best is to visit the dealership and try to find someone who can understand you, better yet, take a arabic-speaking friend with you if you intend to negotiate heavily or get into nitty gritty on the features of the car.

A lot of the car dealership websites don't even list their street address or directions map!!, just a PO box# :-)

what are the prices of new cars in KSA vs. Canada or the USA? Do used cars with low mileage in KSA still have warranty included - are warranties transferable?

I checked out the KSA websites for Lexus, Infiniti and Ford and none of them have any prices for new vehicles listed.

Does the offer for individuals going to KSA from Canada or the USA usually allow enough weight to allow the vehicle to be shipped as well as part of the relocation weight allowance, or do most people purchase their vehicles in KSA? Used prices listed above don't look to bad in $CDN if the exchange rate is around 3.5. However the mileage seems pretty high for most vehicles listed.

HOw much mileage do usually put on while working in KSA?

I've got a 2008 BMW 335xi, which I'd either have to take a pretty big hit if I do sell it in Canada. An option would be shipping it, but that would only be worth if I don't have to incur shipping costs on my own. The downside is I'm not sure what the maintenance costs would be in KSA, since, obviously my warranty would be void in KSA. Another alternative if I bring a vehicle was selling my car and getting a low mileage Lexus, Infiniti or Acura SUV. Is Acura available in KSA - I couldn't find a site? Ideally, if I did bring a vehcile from here, I want to make sure that there won't be any issues servicing it close to the camp in Dharan.

Unless stated in your offer, an auto cannot be shipped as part of your Aramco shipment. It is on your dollar - people who have shipped their cars have found it not too expensive. Search the forum for car shipment info, there are several posts.

Most people in DHA live no more than 10 to 12 minutes or less from their work place. Those working in the off camp facility may have a 15 to 20 minute drive.

So not much mileage unless you want to drive into the local towns or to Bahrain, or Doha, or Kuwait, etc.

Any cars brought here must not have a lien on them (must be paid off). They can be 5 years or younger. I haven't noticed any Acuras, but I haven't been looking for them. The list here in this post is a good example of cars available.

Service centers are in the Khobar or the Dammam area. There is an Aramco Automotive Association where you can work on your car, with all you'd need to do so. There are workers there in the afternoon/early evenings who can help you if you need them to. You pay a yearly fee to have access to the facility - very reasonable.

BMW's US/CA warranty is definitely not honored in KSA, the cost of maintaining a beemer in KSA is on par with US/CA, sometimes more if the part has to be shipped in.

Acura is officially not sold in KSA and hence there are no authorized service centers, the closest thing you are going to get is a Honda workshop.

Hi all,
since you are talking about shipping cars to KSA, does anyone know what kind of process I will face to register the car if brought from TX? It a 2004 Toyota MiniVan, paid off.
Yes, I think someone may tell me its cheaper to sell instead of bringing it in, but to be honest it's one of the things which may really help my wife to overcome the stress in the relocation process - feeling partially familiar, even if she is driving it only around the compound.

Any ideas???

According to vpainter's reply above, it seems only cars 5 years and younger can be registered in Saudi, so, your 2004 model car may have just missed the boat.

I had my SUV shipped from US a while back, I wouldn't recommend it unless you have sentimental attachment to the vehicle, in the end it was too much hassle and costed more than if I bought the exact same car here in KSA, add to that the fact that the US warranty is not honored here, unless you purchase international warranty from there itself which costs a lot.

If you still insist, then contact any international car shipper from the yellow pages there and they can arrange it for you, once it gets here, there is a lot of paperwork to be done, a local receiving agent (shipping co) to be selected, customs duty to be paid, taken to a department to have the vehicle certified for Saudi use, then registration.

After what you mentioned, I don't really insist to send my car, especially since it will not be the minivan that my wife is attached to.
Thanks for your help

You might like some kind of used cars like a sedan, you might see some prices like seven hundred to five thousand dollars. These are the common prices in the internet for used cars.
