Never bought from Costa Cars but I would always suggest you buy from a reputable garage, who should do all the checks on your purchase and can carry out all the necessary paperwork that goes with purchasing a car in Spain.

We purchased our first car here in Spain from Autos Direct in San Miguel. They gave us 3 free services the car was low mileage and a great car. They have a website if you want to check out their stock and prices

We bought a car from them in April. 

Good service from them and the car still works.

Hi, Just for your information - In January 2023 you will not be able to enter any area that houses 50,000 people or more, i.e., Torrevieja, Orihuela Costa, Villamartin etc., unless you do not have a low emissions car with the sticker showing the same on the windscreen.   However I think I should say, you will be able to enter those areas but you will be fined 200 Euros every time you enter one of those areas.   You live in Villamartin so you seriously need to look at not purchasing an ordinary diesel or petrol car.   This information has been all over the Forum pages for quite a while and the N332 site.   Good luck and don't blame the messenger please!

Andrea, do you have a link to the detailed  information please, thanks. You say it has been all over the forum for a while but this is the first time I have heard of it.

Thanks Tony. Nothing in the April CBnews article to say which areas are to start restrictions in the Alicante region from January.

The link to the DGT site in the Euronews article is useful to find out which category your car falls under. 

There is some additional info on N332 site: 

 https://n332.es/low-emission-zones-will-become-more-restrictive/

Can anyone advise if the LBZ labels are available now in Costa Blanca area?   

Rgds,

Aitch.
