Guys please what are your thoughts on the audi A4
2004-2007? Reliability and etc
Audi A4 B7 is a great buy. Ensure you get the Tiptronic transmission... Or manual transmission. A lovely design...the interior is something no Corolla past or present will ever match... The fuel economy is crazy for the 4 cylinder engine, the B7 is designed to be more spacious than the B6.

I am enjoying my Audi A4. And it's not a basket. I saw a Lexus RX 300 earlier here where the engine packed up suddenly.... Germans don't do that

Go and buy it and bring 10% of the purchase amount to me as tithe, you have my blessings my son brother. Reasons why folks don't buy it is because of its price tag.

W don't really do a review here actually, we do a comparison (I'm sure you know the difference).

However, go for that car and you won't regret the decision as long as it is a direct tokunboh with a good auto check score.

Make sure it is not the 2012 model or 2013 model being sold to you.
I got a brand new 2015 Elantra in 2016 and I have done only servicing since. Changed brake pads just only once.

It is a nice car and it drives smoothly.

But heyy! Parts are expensive. I repeat, parts are expensive!

If I were you I will avoid it... But if you have resources you can go for it... Just be on top maintenance and keep an eye & ear on the transmission

Any year you buy is ok, but adviceable you buy one fitted with 2.4L rather than 2.0L Incase you mess up the Engine for easy replacement

Acura TXS only comes with 2.4L

It has a slightly high resale value than it's corresponding Accord. I personally prefer European vehicles to american, they are more classy and we'll built than their counter part

Could you give me the names of the European vehicles? Acura is Japanese if I understand perfectly, would you classify it as European or American?

You will get a Nissan Micra tokunbo for that price but it would be a RHD you still have to convert.

You will get a Peugeot 206 tokunbo for that price but it would be RHD and you still have to travel to Northwest or Northeast of Nigeria to get one.

Though with 700k you can still get a Nigerian used for that price, I will recommend only 4 vehicles

Nissan Micra 05 below

Peugeot 206 06 below

Kia picanto 05 to 10

Kia Rio 05 to 2011

inspect the specimen and make sure Engine and transmission is in proper working order you can get good unit for less than your budget way less use the remaining change to do timely maintenance (transmission drain, timing belt change, coolant change, new sets of tyres, oil change and partial paint and spray).

with those Engine you will be riding 5 to 6L per 100km if you are very good 1200naira can take you 2days to and fro.

The TSX is Honda Accord Europe the normal EOD and DC weren't sold in Europe. You know Europe has its own variant of cars eg

Camry US - Avensis Europe

Sienna US - Previa Europe

Corolla US - Yaris Europe

Honda Civic US - Acura CSX/EL Europe or Honda FIT

etc etc

Thanks nurey..
I actually live in north Nigeria.
Kaduna state.
My neighbour wanted to sell 206 to me... I ran away..thinking..oh it is ladies car.. She changed the tyres about two months before then.
Someone else bought the car

What do you mean by 1200l
Is it 1200 litres or 1200naira worth of petrol.
The distance is about 50km or soless than 60

1200 naira not Litre. I have driven a manual 206 from dambatta to Kano to and fro journey, I bought 500naira worth of fuel when fuel was 87 naira or was it 97 naira the guage was at reserve tank, I drove 150km journey to and fro and the guage went back to reserve. the only traffic was at the murtala Muhammad way where the street light is.

The car is very fuel efficient though I can't tell what engine was in it but I can say it is not more than 1.5L Engine because it actually economize fuel like my Almera I used for same distance.

Let me put it this way, the Honda Accord EOD and DC, Acura TSX and Accord Europe share similar parts for 03 to 07.

Now the Honda Accord Japanese/Europe was sold in North America and Canada as an upscale ACURA TSX.

Acura TSX and Accord Europe have identical design. for that year but you know inorder to sell it as a premium brand, the TSX would have some accessories the Accord Euro would have as an option.
