ANADIVE wants to import 10-year-old cars
The National Vehicle Agencies and Distributors Association (ANADIVE) is pressing for amendments to Law 04-07 in order for their members to be allowed to import vehicles of up to 10 years from date of manufacture. The law establishes a maximum of five years for authorizing the import of a vehicle.
Speaking yesterday, Wednesday, 10 November 2015, Anadive head Cesar de los Santos said that he lobbied for the extension when visiting the Presidential Palace to congratulate President Danilo Medina on his birthday.
De los Santos told reporters from El Caribe that the import of 10-year-old cars benefits the middle and lower economic classes.
He said: “At present it is impossible for a student or a medical salesperson to acquire a vehicle because any vehicle manufactured in 2010 will cost at least RD$500,000.” De los Santos said if vehicles from 2008 were allowed, vehicles would be considerably more affordable, with prices dropping to around RD$350,000.
