What Car Type Can A Family Man With An Income Of 110k Per Month Maintain? by Olumyyde: 5:24pm On Jun 06, 2018
Good evening my brothers and sisters. I am a family man with a wife and a daughter and I need a small fairly used car that is easy to maintain. A car that has fuel economy,whose parts are available and affordable in order to ease family mobility as my wife's workplace is quite a distance from the house. Also, the stress of my wife carrying my child to work via buses n keke breaks my heart. Although we are looking at 2002 Honda civic, heard it fits my criteria so well. Pls, I need your advice on that too. My budget is 450k to 500k. GOD bless us all.

Corolla 98-2001
Golf 3 is also good. Maintenance is almost as cheap as that of a motorcycle

Are all these good cars?
@ OP, please don't go and buy a waste product. Used keke sells for 350k, imagine buying a car for 450k.

Used power bikes go for 3M, imagine buying a used car for 2M.

So, until he buys a Corolla of 700k, he hasn't bought a good car? I'm sure you're one of those who don't recommend cars outside Toyota or Honda.

The OP stated his budget and purpose. If you can't suggest any within his budget, it doesn't make sense to question those who have.

Exactly. The kind of car snobbery that goes on here is disgusting at times.

OP, have a look at the seventh-gen Civic. I'm not a fan of the earlier years but it's definitely cheap to maintain. I've seen someone advertising for something around your budget range.

Firstly, what's your location?
What kind of cars are common there, that should help you choose, as it's the common cars that will have most available parts with experienced technicians on ground. Let that guide your choice.

Dude only say what you know.
I have a Primera i got for lesser than that price u posted above. More than a year now, it's always on the road as i enjoy driving and even trust it's reliability even more than my camry. AC chills too wink

Only minor repairs that costs me almost nothing. (Mind you, most of these minor repairs can be negleted but i am a person that always love everything in shape, even to the smallest dent) No major repairs. Even my mechanic, as well as passengers always talk about how smooth the car is.

Your money doesn't actually matter. U can buy a Lemon for 1Million naira, at the same time u can get a sound vehicle for just 350k. Just pray, go with a competent mechanic and use your head when checking and acquiring the car. Take things easy and dont rush.You ll be ok
I actually monitored my own seller with the car for some months before i decided to check it out. lol.

OP. Am so sure you ll be good with Nissan products. Sunny, Almera, Primera and the likes. But make sure u get a good one, the cars are easy to maintain, but when thwy get abused, you can easily tell.

Golf 3 is a good ride too, personally am not a fan cos of the look and the engine noise plus AC overheating

Civic is ok. But when a used Honda starts getting old, it starts looking funny, as if the car is kinda laughing grin while others just look so tired, Even body frames and/or panel beating doesnt seem to help.

If you step up your budget just a lil' bit, you can get a Toyota corolla 2001 (Auto). I trust the ride very much too.

Civic has really been a very rugged car especially from 1992 to 2004 model or so. It doesn't come with the leg-pull issue peculiar with the Accord so u will enjoy it.
The manual tranny is very fuel efficient, very reliable too, parts, well depends on your location.

I have a friend using the 92 version and it has become our prayer point for him to change his ride since the child he gave birth to when he bought the car has started having girlfriends already grin but sincerely speaking it served him well.

I love the looks of the 2005/2006 version better but am not sure of its relatively compared to its older generations.

Are u getting an Auto or manual?

To be sincere with you, i don't have anyone around me who uses that specific model. Just the '92 Manual and 2006 Auto.

I believe every car is as good as it's owner's periodic maintenance. Just look around but don't limit your search to only that particular model, have an option B so in case you dont find the best of option A, u can go for B.

Go and check with a competent mechanic too and make sure u drive it yourself and personally satisfied with it.
Once again, never rush and never agree to pay for a car because they say someone else is already negotiating for it coming to pay the next day. Lies!
