What kind of car do you recommend bringing to post, given the terrain, availability of parts, burglary/carjacking risks, etc.? What kind of car do you advise not to bring?

SUV is handy, especially when it rains. Don't bring anything you value highly. Your car will get dinged, or bottom out on bad roads, or rust away with the constant rain. - Mar 2020


Bring something that you don't mind pushing off a cliff when you leave. Your car will get ruined here. 4-wheel drive and good clearance would be beneficial if you plan on exploring much. - Feb 2013


I'd recommend a small SUV. Gas is now US$5.07/gallon. You won't drive much here (the drive around the island takes just under 2 hours), but the roads are in bad condition. A sedan with low clearance will take a beating here. - Apr 2008
