After a savvy salesman convinces Reymundo to buy a used car without having first reviewed the car’s history, Reymundo unknowingly is left to deal with a useless car that creates more problems for him. 

Reymundo comes to understand how precious time is when his date loses patience after waiting for Reymundo to withdrawal cash from his bank. By using an ATM, he could have avoided the line and been on his way in a matter of minutes. 

Reymundo tells us the story of how Roberto and his wife Angelica almost fell into the trap of buying a home from a less reputable salesman. Roberto & Reymundo show us that it is never a bad idea to shop around.
