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.


Why didn't you add a 99 corolla to that list?

I will vex for you now o

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.

Thanks so much boss

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.

I understand you better now but the parts shared between these cares are limited to 03-07, which leaves out 08 even tho they all look alike and termed 1st Gen TSX

The second generation Acura TSX = Honda Accord Euro = Honda inspire (Japan) = Evil Spirit.

most Honda vehicles share parts from Engine to transmission, it's majorly Acura TL and RL that are a bit different to a degree.

but Acura TSX corresponds with same year accord

Does your statement in bold not contradict your recommendation earlier?

It's not the only reliable car? Sure! Yet, it didn't make the list of your "reliable" cars.

Do you want us to compare the reliability and maintenance of the said 99 Toyota Corolla with same model of cars you put up there? Year for year?

I bet you don't want to go down that lane with me bro.

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
a (non abused) peugeot 206 is fuel economically great. even the 1.6L engine that i drive on a daily basis gives 10L/120km city drive with mad traffic.

there other cars that are fuel efficient as well.

the automatic drive of that engine is slow and less fuel economical. if you're a speed person, you will have to throttle down to get the speed you want thus fuel suffers. The manual is more responsive. However, the 307 with EW10 engine is good both for auto and manual. fast and safe.

pls i take God beg you, that 2008 Peugeot 307 is phase II, new model with more electricals. It is very delicate and volatile. Any abuse to that car will escalate stories that touch the heart. These cars are not meant for most Nigerians (kazim patroniserz).

I didn't put Toyota there because

Most cars I put there are between 1999 to 2011 model years you can't get a 03-11 Toyota at that price because it is overpriced due to Toyota reliability position.

The op has 700k for the said car won't it be more economical for him to buy a car worth 400k to 600k and use the remaining balance to fix to his taste. A 99 Corolla naija used in good condition is around 650k to 800k and you will still need to do minor fixes.

in essence it is economically better to buy alternatives of Toyota that are equally good than buying an overpriced product. You should rather be fighting for Civic not Corolla.

The major reason I omitted Toyota was because of the Yaris, the Yaris in that price range is the blandest nonsense of a car I have ever come across very ameboid and an excuse for ART grin (no offense intended) besides the Toyota you are fighting for doesn't have 1.1L to 1.5L Engine.

These peugeot cars are cheap cars with high maintenance culture...All the phases are good, however the phase II have complex systems.
Before buying a peugeot car, check if you have a peugeot guru around you, if not don't buy abeg!

We peugeot lovers are hoping and anticipating that more Peugeot technicians would spring up.
The problem usually start when the lions have issues and there are no available tech to attend to them. They usually end up in kazims yard who would probably worsen the case!

You have begun adding sentiments and doing this tends to cover facts.

I don't respond to sentimental opinions.

FYI, I don't drive a Toyota. Although I once owned the 2004 camry, I sold the car and I am not a fan of Toyota.

hey everyone
I would like to hear Y'alls view on a mitsubishi pajero 03(Naija used)
it's going quite cheap because the owner is moving abroad, very neat and all.
I would like to know how easy it is to maintain in Nigeria, fuel consumption rate etc
it's a family car and roads to the house is quite bad, hence an SUV is needed.

if you've used this car before, kindly give some advice. thanks.
