Once you have already CONFIRMED that the car is SOUND and CLEAN,you wont have a problem maintaining it as a first time owner.

Just use your car with care,and do the normal oil changes as at when due,elantra is a basic car,and not a luxury ride,so expenses will be minimal.

MAKE SURE THE CAR IS HANDLED BY AN EXPERIENCED MECHANIC.

You are good to go,best of luck.

The GLE is a direct successor to the ML, and the 450 is a better engine than the 350. GLE450, without a doubt.

“A bit above average” is not a value or a range.

By the way, purchasing power isn’t determined solely by earning potential but also spending habits.

I can be earning 10m a month but that doesn’t make me able to afford the ML in discussion if I spend 9.8m and save 200k monthly.

Someone earning 500k monthly, who spends 50k from that earnings can easily afford the ML than the former.

However, if I’m to pick a choice from your options, it will be the ML350. However, I’ll pick the 2014 model year.

Best wishes.

Thanks for the bolded.

The car is clean.

But the main thing you should make your priority is the condition of the engine.

Once it's in excellent condition, you are good to go.

Toyota Avalon is not a portable car.

Infact, its a full size executive car.

PORTABLE OPTIONS :

Honda Civic

Toyota Corolla

Toyota Matrix

Honda City

Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai Accent

Kia Rio.

But i personally will go for Honda Civic.
Sir can you kindly explain why you prefer the Honda civic to any of the Toyota you listed? I have heard a lot of negative talk about Honda's engine issues, as compared to Toyota. I want to learn more sir, thanks...

Toyota is a wonderful brand bro.

Its just my personal choice picking the Honda Civic...

MY REASONS :

1. Its not common and everwhere like Toyota.

2. It has better exterior and interior design than Toyota, try to enter a 2008 Honda Civic and also a 2008 Toyota Corolla, and tell me which one you think has better design.

3. The engine is reliable and long lasting when maintained properly.


Before you see three Toyota in the Northern part of Nigeria, you would have seen ten Honda's.

Both are great brands, but the only "Toyota is good" hype is too much here in the south.

90% of the negative you are supposed to hear about the Honda is leg issues( the k leg thing) mostly common with accords though not exclusive to accords alone,but the recent accords are yet to experience such issues or complains for now,meaning the so called leg issues is gradually fading away with new brands and generation coming out,but trust me if anyone tells you Toyota has better engines than Honda (on a general note or perspective) he or she is the biggest liar in the world,on the contrary in 'most cases'Honda makes better engines than toyota, pls find time to do some research once in a while,as educated individual we shouldn't always depend on the uneducated (no disrespect intended) to make a decision for us,still taking the Nigerian factor into consideration.

Sultan used the car 10years in USA grin

The only major issue in Nigeria is Ford parts are expensive taken a fair share with a navigator but they are solid and mechanics can fix em easily. Buy but be weary of the 4 cylinder engines, I believe the V6 are more reliable

are you saying Honda engine will last longer than Toyota? Or talking about performance
Re: The Official Car Comparison/Recommendation Thread by dadabashua1(m): 7:31pm On Jun 04

do your research about internal combustion engine.....and yes most Honda engine last longer,most people don't know that Honda was originally known for engine manufacturing and also motorcycle production,before going into car productions,Honda is a super power when I comes to anything engine,not just cars but a host of other engines,they are the real giants in engine manufacturing in the world Sir.you can beat Honda in a lot of things,but when I come to engine they are a force to reckon with o,look at the failure rate very impressive I must say.

They are also the biggest engine manufacturers in the world with an estimated production rate of 23million units(not just automobile engines)just like Toyota was holding the title of the biggest car manufacturers in the world before losing it to Volkswagen,though remained the most valuable car makers on earth(Toyota),Honda are yet to lost that title for now.
