Yes, there are no restrictions for foreigners who want to buy a vehicle in the USA. You just have to be able to pay for it.Check with your home insurance company and the auto club to see if they have a partnership with an auto insurance company in the USA. The dealership can also help with arranging insurance.Examples of nationwide US insurance companies are AAA, State Farm, and Allstate.
