Elder001:


You should get the Hyundai civic or Toyota corolla 1998 . You won't spend more than 420k and remember to check the condition before buying (don't buy from online sources.. Nobody can be trusted these days)

For maintenance since your wife also earns, it won't be hard for you two to maintain the car because you won't spend more than 70-90k on maintenance per year on the Hyundai civic(unless the engine and other stuffs comes into the equation)
Tnx for your detailed advice. very helpful. Honda u meant?

Why on God's green earth are you paying attention to this car? Seems my advice feel on deaf ears. I wish you the best but will be unfolding your thread. A word is enough for the wise.

Yes! It’s a salon car .
And it’s as reliable as the golf. ”If you can get a deal at that price
Search the auto section or just ask for a trusted dealer on the auto section to see what it looks like and deals too.
Ps: I’m not asking you to purchase from a Nairaland dealer .and I’m not asking you not to.

Olumyyde Don't ever buy a honda, they suffer a lot of ball joint issues at the front wheels after perilously going through lots of pot holes on nigerian roads. I don really suffer for honda hand and I don sell own buy better corrolla.

Go for a Peugeot 307,Its in your range(500k),parts are very cheap/Its reliable,in terms of looks,Its still goes with this generation of cars unlike the 2004 corolla's etc that look 90s....got some cool functons from the central lock to the dash notification(indicating if Its has any problem)to mention a few.In general itssimply paying less for more.
Nice car, was told parts are not as affordable as d civic n mostly comes with manual transmission.

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.

Bros is like we are in the same shoe ooo. Am a family man with two kids. Infact I need car now badly. We hardly attend ceremony, function just because of no car, I can't find it easy to attend party entring marwa or Danforth with my family. But what I no is that to own a car is not as important as being able to maintain a car. So get the one that fit your pocket. I will advice u get Toyota as a first car because of maintenance. Me am stil praying for God to get me a good car but as my wife is not working it really difficult for me to gather the money to buy car now. Car is necessity not luxury for a family man
