I don't see why not. When I was in the the automobile business I sold cars to Europeans a few times. As long as you have good credit and can afford the payment there's no reason why you can't.

yep i know, but i have info about problem with registration and with insurance for non us citizen, and we are need using car legaly on florida. we are visiting us on ESTA,

Best thing would to contact a auto dealer in the area of Florida that your going to visit. This can't be a problem that they haven't come across before. Florida is a big tourist state and frankly I think they have a plan for folks like you. It's worth a shot.

Or, look into a short term lease! That's got to be less then renting.

you will need a driver's license first- why not buy it for a friend and have them let you use it? They could pay for the insurance-

because we are not friends in florida))) and florida drivers licence its immpossible for me becasue we are not imigrant, not resident, going to florida for vacation, and purchased car is better then rent, short time rent itns not perfect

You should contact the DMV (Depatment of Motor Vehicles) for registration requirements, not the car dealer.

If you buy a car and only use it a couple of months at a time you risk having problems starting it after letting it sit so long between uses because the gasoline gets old without a stabilizer added.
