First off let me introduce myself, I'm Philip, I currently reside in Colombia, I'm flying to Nashville, Tennessee on November 25, once I get there I'll stay for around 4 months to study in ELS, uhm so I was planning to buy a car cause once I finish there I'm heading down to Pembroke Pines FL I'll stay there for around a week, then I'll drive up to Daytona beach, FL to study Aviation at ATP which is going to last for around 10 months. So to reduce costs once I get to Nashville I'm planning to buy a car, my questions are the following
Can I actually buy a car if I'm under 21? (currently 18), also I don't hold a US citizenship, I only hold my Columbian passport and visas.
My uncle lives in Pembroke Pines FL, is this a plus? if so, why??
What documents do I need to purchase a vehicle in the US, Tennessee to be exact.
I'm not sure if my uncle can add me to their insurance, because Nashville is pretty away from Pembroke Pines which is next to Miami.
Also I'm unsure if I should fly to Miami, buy the car there with my uncles help, and then drive up to Nashville instead of flying.
I'm probably going to be alone buying a car, never ever done that in my life, what do I need to know? I've checked a few in a websites where they actually show you the vehicles carfax, however, what taxes, title, and other documentation I would need to pay&sign?. Lets say the vehicles website price is 3500 USD, what would be the final price after all the taxes&title etc...
Also if I chose to get a car insurance by myself, is it more convenient? how much would I need to pay monthly if the vehicle's model I buy is between 2001 and 2004?
Thanks for your time!!
I really want to leave home asap, but at the same time I feel bad about it ):
