Cars // Most families ship 1 car over & buy a beater car for daily commute. Either from another military family or local dealership; expect to pay $2,000-$5,000 for a car that is 10+ years old with over 75,000K miles. Depending on your financial situation, you might want to look into shipping your second car out-of-pocket since the cost is about $2,000-$3,000 from US to Germany. You know the history & condition of your car vs. used cars with unknown history & possible future expenses.
