Hi guys,

What model and type of car do you consider to be the best for use on Nigerian roads.

Please also bear in mind fuel efficiency and ruggedness. cool

Peugeot - All models (Made for Nigerian Roads)

Honda - 90's models , Avoid civics.
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by buchio7(m): 10:23pm On Aug 04, 2006
i will go for the peugeot especially the 504 and 505 series.
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by dondele(m): 10:36pm On Aug 04, 2006

What is the fuel KMPG or a 504 compared to an Accord. When did the Peugeot become an fuel efficient car? Can you tell us how you know this? KMPG=Kilometer per Gallon
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by gigitte(f): 5:50am On Aug 06, 2006
toyota
fuel efficiency
availability of spare parts
and of course 504 is king, tho it is pretty old lol
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by buchio7(m): 12:00am On Aug 07, 2006
Fact is dat toyota is a fuel efficient car. Most japanese cars are but in terms of ruggedness n ability to easily access parts the peugeot stands out.
Dese r basic things ppl knw if u drive regularly in nigeria
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by OldGlory1(m): 12:07am On Aug 07, 2006
Honda's make the most Fuel Efficient Cars including Hybrids, Electric ETC. Compare fuel standards of the Honda Model Line and their MPG Ratios.

MPG=Miles Per Gallon.
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by LoverBwoy(m): 3:55am On Aug 07, 2006
i think a jeep with a fence or cage grin built around it is very good for Nigeria, then all the okada people will always watch well well when them come near u


Okay i think Peugeot 505and504 are very good for Nigeria though not fuel efficient or any other effectient you are looking for because there is no single data to back it up, no safety rating no thing really special but they are quite durable wink (how comes 504 and 505 are only in Nigeria/Africa?)

Honda is another good car for Nigeria very strong and efficient
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by buchio7(m): 2:59pm On Aug 07, 2006
504 is in more african countries dan u know. , at least i can mention 2 (ghana n benin) in terms of ruggedness and parts availability,peugeot holds d ace for nigeria.
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by OldGlory1(m): 3:01pm On Aug 07, 2006
Lolololol @ Buchio7

U are still digging that hole!! Keep on doing your thing and believing what you believe.Holds the ace my a$$.
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by djcrucifix(m): 3:50pm On Aug 07, 2006

Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by buchio7(m): 5:36pm On Aug 07, 2006
@OLD GLORY,

I AM NT SAYING IT 4 UR BENEFIT.IT IS PRETTY OBVIOUS IF U DRIVE IN LAGOS/P.H. N NT IN CHOCOLATE CITY U.S.A.(is dat a real place).
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by OldGlory1(m): 5:48pm On Aug 07, 2006
I have driven in Lagos,PH, Abj and i do not think that the 504 holds it's own. Yes Chocolate city is a real place, i live here. It is just like calling PH the Garden City or Calabar=Canaan City ETC. It is also obvious you have never driven an SUV before. You own a 504 that does it all for you right? You might need to upgrade my friend.
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by buchio7(m): 8:09pm On Aug 07, 2006
Thank you for ur words of encouragement. as i said earlier it shws u out 4 wat u r.
Re: What Model Of Car Is Best For Nigerian Roads? by drtess(f): 4:39pm On Aug 08, 2006
Guys, guys, lets be mature adults and stick to the topic.
No more "IN your Face" talk okay!!!! embarassed shocked

Now back to the topic, smiley
For rough roads i would go for a Jeep any day. cool

For smoooth roads and bearing in mind the cost of fuel, i'll go for fuel efficient cars like Toyota or any other good japanese cars. cool

For ruggedness and cars that are durable, i'll go for a volvo. cool

But if i have to put everything together then i'll just have to find a japanese made jeep both for fuel efficiency and use on rough roads. cool wink

Cheers!!!

All model, all type, all kind, even all product cos Nigeria got all kind of roads. if u go to the Niger Delta region please i will

advice you to go with a Toyota Hilux. and if you stay in Abuja and you have money to buy Lamborghini, Ferrari, or

mustang please do so if possible race and kill yourself, and if you stay in Lagos and Port Harcourt where you have both

good, bad and lenghty roads less i forget holdup, you can go for SUVs and fuel efficient cars, but please if you are going

to Aba, Onisha etc. i advise you look for a way to get an EXECUTIVE MUOLUE or betterstill meet them to customize

EXECUTIVE EKWELOBIA for you cos you have to jump plenty of pot holes, dishes, and plenty of dust and bad smell. As

our name implies "GIANT OF AFRIKA" we have all good and bad in us, may God continue to bless us with all these.

giant of Afrika kho
