THe Superintendencia General de Seguros (Sugese) and Instituto Nacional de Seguros (INS) also have stands to ask questions on insurance.

“One of the clearest objectives of Aivema’s Expomóvil every year, is to improve the vehicle fleet in the country and also provide more and better options every year to all Costa Ricans,” said Guillermo Charpentier, president of the organizing committee.

According to Aivema, the Costa Rica auto market had the fastest growth in percentage in Latin America.

“Last year we grew 24.9% and this important change in the vehicle fleet has had a positive impact for the country, meaning vehicles with better technologies, more efficient consumption and a strong tax revenue,” said Charpentier.

Financing is a major part of the Expomovil. Buyers with little = and some cases nothing – down can finance their purchase with rates as low as 6.75% for dollar loans with terms up to 84 months.

The Banca Kristal or Women’s bank is offering 100% financing and with approval within an hour.

Financial experts warn buyers to evaluate their financed purchases, not to give in to impulse buying. In the past, Aivema numbers indicate that more than half of the finance purchases at the auto show come back to the financier within 18 months.
