Tukunbo Cars Vs Nigerian Fairly Used? by austinobee: 5:00pm On May 09, 2008
Buying a Tokunbo car is generally always better than buying Nigerian Used cars when it comes to reliability of purchase.  A tokunbo car would and should have less problems than a Nigerian used car.  I think this should be because of one of the following factors:

(1)  The state of our roads in Nigeria
(2)  The mentality of car users in Nigeria who hardly service their cars
(3)  The recklessness of drivers in Nigeria who in a hurry will bump into available pothole in the bad roads.

However, tokunbo cars are more expensive than Nigerian used cars.  The question is:  Is it possible to get good tokunbo cars at cheap (rock bottom) prices?

Yes it is.    You can get a good deal from cotonou agents and firewall drivers at the risk of losing your cars to custom officials who would sieze cars from smugglers that do not pay dues or know how to go about the business.

Anyway, if you need a reliable Tokunbo car from cotonou at the best price with a money back guarantee, should you not like the car on arrival, you can call the following numbers 08120818668 and 07028833735.  Also call for price enquiries.  You will discover that the prices are much lower than what you will get from major tokunbo car dealers.

Chief,

This your post should be in the auto section and i am sure u must have meant Tokunbo Cars wink
Re: Tukunbo Cars Vs Nigerian Fairly Used? by Goshen360(m): 6:13pm On May 09, 2008
Yea, i agree with you cos i reside in the border area of Nigeria and benin republic and also buy cars for customers at times. I also have the idea of how much its being sold in Lagos or else where in Nigeria. The main issue is, most of the tyme, car dealers at Apapa also have agent at seme border area who buys car for them to resell. But if you can connect a good agent from seme border, you are sure of a better fair price.

Keep the thread going please.

Re: Tukunbo Cars Vs Nigerian Fairly Used? by Toks2008(m): 12:46pm On May 10, 2008
Hi Guys,



Well i very much believe that Nigerians have totally been misguided concerning the issue of cars.

1. Cars are necessities and not luxuries. Therefore buy an affordable car as long as it is presentable and in a very good shape. Forget very expensive cars and use your money for more productive things.

2. Never buy a car without finding out the maintainance cost.

3. VIN(Vehicle identification number) or no VIN, to know car history is not a guarantee that you will enjoy a particular car. Make a thorough examination.

4. If you ever decide to buy Nigerian used cars, please be careful because 9 out of every 10 Nigerian used cars have a hidden problem.

5. This might sound silly but please if you have a choice to choose between auto and manual transmission,dive for the manual. Cheap to maintain.

6. If you must buy expensive cars, go for the Nigerian used ones that are not more than a year in Nigeria because in most cases the owners are probaly broke after spending so much to aquire it.

7. Until our Nigerian auto dealers soft pedal,stop waisting your Hard earned money buying cars of eight years or less from dealers in Nigeria due to their exploitative atitude. Order them directly from United Stes.

8. Alternatively go to Benin Rep. and buy your car, do your duty and drive your car home jeje, no fear of this or that. You can save thousands of naira and give to charity rather than dashing it out to our dealers here. Immagine what you can do with N100,000 savings on toyota camry 2001 model that is sold here at N1.4m or N1.5m while you will get same from Benin rep. at about N1.3m(duty fee included).

9. If you have your way, look for good car sales outlet in lagos where you can find cheap cars above 8 years and buy jeje and don't wait until you have millions to shower on the so called state of the art cars.

10. If you love variety, then never use a car for more than a year or at most two before selling it. Just add a little money to buy another one.


Thanks

Tokunbo

What exactly do you need? A tokunbo or a Nigerian Used (Second hand) car? Please be specific.
Re: Tukunbo Cars Vs Nigerian Fairly Used? by dewiseacre(m): 1:16pm On May 10, 2008
Austin,I'm not choosy about whether it is tokunbo or Nigerian used.I just want one that is very OK,working well and trendy.My friend bought his at a local car wash and the car is very OK, another friend of mine bought one that was imported and that's OK too, so any would do,as long as it meets my taste of being trendy,ok and fine.
