Best Car To Buy As A First Car: Car Buying Tips For First Time Buyers by IsaacBuchi(m): 12:47pm On Oct 04, 2018
TOPIC: Best car to buy as a first car – as your first car: Car buying tips for first time buyers


I am writing on this topic: best car to buy as a first car - as your first car because I have heard so many sad stories from first time buyers here in Nigeria.


These my fellow beloved Nigerian first time car buyers make lot of mistakes because they do not have an experienced person to guide them in the process, so they end up learning the hard way, which is not good for them or anyone. It doesn’t make me happy. embarassed


Some of these “first time buyers” also get swindled along the line – in the process of purchasing their first car or their first used car. Nobody wants to experience such and I know you wouldn’t want that for yourself, your family and friends. That is why I have written this piece of content on the topic: best car to buy as a first car – as your first car: car buying tips for first time buyers.


The Truth is this: Everyone buying a car (be it young or old; man or woman) deserves a perfect car. Whether you are going for a 2nd car or for a 3rd car, you deserve a perfect car - I repeat, you deserve a perfect car! How much more someone who is just buying only for the first time, then, that person deserves more than just a perfect car - he or she deserves a perfect first car.


When a first time buyer gets a perfect first car, the last conversation he or she would want to engage in, is "spare-part conversation" (spare-part discussion). Nobody would want after just buying a car, to start chatting with the mechanic about spare-part. It doesn't feel good, rather it feels horrible.


This is why you need a guide, this is why you must have an experienced person to guide you. And that is why I am here giving you some Car Buying Tips For First Time Buyers.


My sole motive of crafting this little chunk of massive content is to help enlighten you and anyone else reading this post right here on Nairaland.


Whether you are reading through this post right on your phone, desktop or laptop; I can rightly guess some of the many questions you may be waiting to ask. Questions such as: “i want to buy a new car”, “i want to buy my first car”, “what’s the best car for me?”, “what is the best car brands to buy”, “what is the best place to sell used car”, “what’s the best car to buy in Nigeria?”, “what is the best car to buy as a first car”, “what car is right for me?”, “which car model is the best?”.


I know...I know...yes I know. These are many unanswered questions that you may have locked-down within your mind looking for who will answer them all for you.


Do not let yourself get worked-up or get stressed up, I am very willing to help you! I will be that experienced guide that you need to easily put the puzzle together.


You also may be wondering, how I got to know exactly what you need. Yes, I know because I see many people searching for it on Google every single day. So I just figured out that you may be having similar challenges too. So please, do not take me for a magician. grin


If you are having these challenges, you then, would likely be searching for reliable answers, including the best reliable answer to that title: best car to buy as a first car – as your first car: car buying tips for first time buyers.


Well, don’t worry!

I will tell you all that you would need to know to make the best decision today, tomorrow or in the near future. You can also make use of what you learn here to help other people you know that may need similar help (that is only if this content was helpful to you)


You might also be wishing if it were possible to have a one-on-one chat with me to ask me all these your questions and have them answered instantly for you.


No problem, I will be providing you with a way to contact me, so that you can ask me any questions or possibly make detailed inquiries about cars - any car at all. Whatever questions you ask, I will answer and if I don't know the right answer to the question you are asking at the moment, then, I will have to go find out and get back to you.


I am also very interested in building a successful business relationship with every single one of you carefully reading through this post (only if this content was helpful).


So, no worries at all. By the time you’re done reading through the many answers that I’ll be dropping right here, you certainly will be well equipped to confidently go off and make that buying decision that has kept you hanging.


So let’s get started… best car to buy as a first car – as your first car: car buying tips for first time buyers.

QUESTION: Is it advisable to buy a diesel car for a first timer?

ANSWER: No, it is not advisable for a first timer to go for a car that runs on diesel for his/her first car...NOT advisable, abort mission.

REASON: The reason is because, we have less diesel mechanics. You don't want your car to break down and there is no mechanic to fix it.

BACKUP COMMENT FROM A NAIRALAND CITIZEN: You are right sir. Very valid point. I will always advise that a good car friendly maintenance features and fuel efficiency should be anyone's first car no matter how much money you have at your disposal.

BACKUP INFO: Please I am not a Sir; I am only a helper - a good for nothing slave at your disposal. I just simply love helping people!



QUESTION: What is the better way to buy a car?

ANSWER: I would only be talking about a better way to buy a car and not the best way because I just want to hit the nail on the head. So, what's that better way?

Before proceeding to buy a car, please and please (with my knees on the ground), just help me and make sure to have the car properly inspected. Because there are lot and lots of presumably good cars plying our Nigerian roads today. It might be unknown to the owners that these cars will park-up very soon. So, you will seriously need a top-notch mechanic that specializes in that specific car to do a thorough tear-down car inspection before you start any negotiations.


QUESTION: Is it only a mechanic that is needed? How do I find that top-notch specialist?

ANSWER: Okay, so I wouldn't only be telling you the answer to the first part of the question, but I will also give you answer to the latter - the second one.

Yes, it's true that you would be needing a mechanic but not just a mechanic. You would also be needing a car electrician, a panel beater, a painter and an A.C MAN. If you are sure to find these five (5) technics in one person, then, I would truthfully tell you a secret: You have found gold - pure gold (you have found the HIM) smiley



I know now you are agitated - feeling a bit nervous, thinking to yourself - where the heck do I find this pure-gold-mechanic that this cool dude is talking about? smiley
Please there is no need to worry. Just continue reading.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Honda cars have stronger engine than Toyota cars.

The only problem Honda cars have is their leg. But if u pay close attention and listen well and change the shaft, etc whenever you notice the sign, your Honda car will never open leg on the road which happens to be their major problem.

When it comes to strong engine, Honda remains the best.

When it comes to strong leg, fuel efficiency, Toyota takes the lead, though not all Toyota but Corolla and Camry.

In terms of SUV, Toyota remains the best for now
