I have recently moved to the states (LA area), and I am looking for a lease in these crazy shortage times. I did not get any car yet, either because dealer has low interest on getting me into a lease without credit score, or because residuals look terrible for some models that I like, or because I am lost in figuring out the US system in general. The rental provided by my employer is finishing 15th August and I need to find a vehicle before that, so here I am I would like to appreciate the dealers / brokers / forum members that have been in contact with me these past days trying to help me out in getting a car.
I have seen some good information searching around the forum, but could not find any dedicated post.
I would like to start a topic for listing tips, visa friendly dealers or visa friendly brokers or any other suggestion to the newcomers in the US. If there is enough activity, I will try finding some time to keep the 1st post up to date as a reference guide for other us newcomers.
