Above thread refers pls.




It's called business, as a businessman, is your money or your capital. You buy, you sell or resell at any price of your choice.

Not anybody's business but yours.


What about letting the buyer know exactly what he's buying

Can still remember the face the dealer made when the question was put him that what have you replaced in this vehicle?

Responding to the question, he said nothing, the car came into the country like that clean untouched.

I talked to some people about VIN yesterday, but they don't know it, like hearing from me for the first time and they are all car owners.

That's the reason why people can easily be deceived there.


Who am i to against salvage business or it importation

Is a business, but is all about full disclosure and letting the buyers know what they're paying for.

This vehicle had accident or flooded but has been fixed perfectly.

They walk away because of the history, some will walk in and pay and everybody go home happy.


Why advertise a car to be clean, accident free and the history says something else

Yes, the Seller should have provided full disclosure about the car but he did not. Most car dealers here in Nigeria rarely come out clean about the true condition of the cars on their stand.


However the onus lies on the buyer to carry out a thorough background check on any vehicle before paying for it. But most of us are always in a hurry to pay and later develop 'buyer's remorse'.


I feel sorry for the buyer though.


Have you approached the Seller about your findings on the said vehicle?

Sure, some salvaged cars are very ok with little collision or damage.


I can purchase like this car in the first image where yoy just need to replace the bumper, headlamps, fender or bonnet, and little panel beating and spraying.



Imagine the second imagine, some worse cars that are certified non-repairable on the site will be shipped down to Nigeria. They will cut it, weld, spray it and tag it Accident free.

Egbon,

To be candid, pictures 2 & 3 are best fit to be dismantled and sold as spare parts. Perhaps the auto-dealers know that selling such cars to spare-part dealers would not bring much ROI hence the reason for repairing the damaged parts and sell such vehicles at market price.

I agree with you for picture 1. The extent of the damage is manageable. The engine, chasis and radiator are well intact. I wouldn't mind going for such type.

Your thread is an eye opener to potential car buyers and if it would cost much to buy grade A car, I wouldn't mind.

Did you realise that most Japanese cars have this issue? It's rare to see this complaints in Europeans and America cars. Just my observation though or what do u think?

Not rare, not quite. It's a question of relativity. For every 1 Mercedes-Benz C300 imported, there are 100 Toyota Corolla vehicles imported.

Certainly more accidented cases of the often cheaper, more ubiquitous Asian vehicles would present themselves.

Go through my posts and you will come across multiple European Vehicles with similar and even worse issues.

The reason is patronage or demand.

German and American cars most times are for the few that are rich.

But Japanese and others are for everyone. They have cars for the rich, middle class or average people. The demand is high that's why issues like these comes often.

Until your government wake up to its responsibilities, your country will continue to be a dumping ground for salvage cars.

It'd be really shameful if that mess of a car was actually cleared by officials of the Nigerian customs in its damaged state.

Some said with my quote, the dealer is good to go, despite lying to the buyer that the car has never been touched.

We're not even fighting against salvage because clean cars are expensive and we're not there to manufacture ourselves.

Issues is importers/dealers that are bringing in salvage cars are them branding them and selling them as clean.

agreed..thats how I went to check one eod in ph.. Seller said.. It's just buy and drive.. Nothing to fix except shocks.. But when I checked the car.. There was so much to fix
..starting from bad interiors.. To vibrating engine.. Heavy jerking while changing gears.. Then I scanned the car.. And.. Wahlaaa... It threw over 8 codes.. With 2 of them.. Black in colour.. Showing high voltage somewhere.. I scanned again. And another black code came up to total it to 10 codes.. I just told owner.. To go and fix his vehicle.. That the vehicle needs total overhaul.. When I scan.. It brings out multiple colours based on the urgency and seriousness.. Red coloured code means.. Issue already exists.. Green colour code means..pending issues.. That's.. It hasn't come up yet but it will come up.. Just like a warning.. While black code means.. Danger.. Could damage something more in the car.. Infact.. It's the first time I saw a black code in my history of scanning cars..
