Buying a car in Costa Rica then driving to Panama / Nicaragua?

I am Canadian, traveling to Costa Rica.

If I buy a vehicle in Costa Rica, can I then drive to panama or Nicaragua with the vehicle I bought for 3 to 6 months then come back to Costa Rica. Can I cross the border without any problems? How does it work exactly?

    You have to import the vehicle into each country which means paying significant taxes. As unprepared as you appear, you won't have the car too long before it is stolen.
