It's odd that duolingo doesn't accept "My car is close", when several other exercises in this same section do accept "close" as the translation for "cerca" as the last word in the sentence. I agree "nearby" is better grammar in this case, I'm just looking at consistency.

You're right. Either nearby or close by makes more grammatical sense. However, My car is close is quite common in colloquial usage. Perhaps report it the next time?

Good to see "carro" instead of "coche."

Why is that? I've heard 'coche' is more commonly used in Spain.

Because "carro" is more commonly used in all countries (75% of speakers), except 4.

This course primarily teaches Latin American Spanish, not Castilian.
