Is Opel Zafira A Good Car For A Transport Business by baba4thegehs: 4:08pm On Feb 05, 2020
Hi guys, I'm about to buy an Opel Zafira Car 2002

The idea is to use the car for a transport business outside Lagos (Calabar)

In other not to make the wrong decisions I would appreciate if anyone who knows a thing or 2 about this cat can share some pros and cons of using it for a transport business.

Thank you

I noticed that Nigerian regions have cars that are popular in each region, in jos and bauchi Opel vectra , Sharon and vento are the most popular hence the parts and machnics are always available, so just check for the most dominant vehicle for ur kind of transport business, just like corrolla to uber

Your best bet is toyota sienna or volkswagen sharan. Leave that opel alone.

The opel is an amazing car.
Very strong. Good fuel economy and they are fast... Stable on high speed too.
If there is adequate support, available parts and capable Mechanics in your area, its a great choice. However like bigiyaro mentioned, do a survey of the vehicle thats mostly used in your area. That wld give U an idea of the parts and expertise you can access....

However on a good day tho, that opel na better motor forget

Which engine capacity is better to buy for the zafira if somebody wants to use it for transportation biz? They have 1.6, 1.8, 2.0, 2.2 engines

Any thoughts on that?

Well said. Toyota picnic and sienna is dominant here.

Hopefully I'll find a good deal before the end of this month.

You make a partial point, but the vehicle too had longevity potentials, hence it's widespread use.

It also won many awards..... But adding the 9ja factor, the car's fortunes go just spoil........ cheesy

For the zafira, considering its size and number of people it would carry i would suggest you get the 2.2... so U get as much power as possible.

Some of the zafira cars have been playing that route before I bought my sienna and they are still in good shape even better looking than my car not surprised it's an highway devoid of mad okada riders, crazy Keke owners and devilish vanagon drivers.

I can vouch for Opel as a good car anyday anytime, I have had encounter with it in the north too so F**k Toyota grin

I used 2002 1.8 engine for 4 good years. (private thought)

I sold it December last year and I am going for 2.2 engine 2004 model.

I repair my car in Opel specialist here in Abuja.

Trust me between sienna and zafira I will go for zafira any day and any time.
