I think you should get a good car.

I am still an advocate for Honda baby boy but I can't say how well u will get a properly maintained baby boy....
With 500 even if u get an abused Camry... U will survive
But if u get an abused babyboy... Based on your weekend travels ... Your pocket might suffer.....

For the first time... I will join they an say.. Go for a Camry...


PS: I have both a 2002 babyboy and 2001 Camry....so I can best judge... (None of them for sale sha)

Camry of 500k is a scrab. It will give you problems. A good Nigerian used Camry starts from 650k/700. But on the other hand A baby boy of 500k will be very sound and very grade and clean. Carefully source a sound Honda baby boy of 500k in Kaduna. You will enjoy it or increase your budget to 700k and go for Camry.

1: Speed..

OP... I have to be real with you... I'll advise you to go for a camry., but., You'll have to up your budget a bit cos
A Nigerian used camry of 500K will most likely give you issues in the long run, unless you know the usage history of the vehicle.

So, go for a camry, but a decent and sound one, which would slightly be above 500K

P. S - Honda Baby boy is a no-no, if you doubt, try using it for while, then you'll see.

I use a Honda Accord 2002 v4, it's a fabulous car, bought mine fairly used almost Tok Standard last year Sept #720k in Kaduna, it's been an awesome ride, been playing Abuja to Zaria almost on a weekly basis, the rate of fuel consumption is a bit high compared to Camry 99, but it's performance and speed is top-notch.....

Most Nigerian like abusing cars...
Don't do due servicing with the right oil..
Don't pay attention to details etc hence they say camry


Honda Accord is far sophiticated Jare.

4 years av not changed shocks on babyboy... Let me not count how many changes available don on Camry...

For one Honda has better suspension than Camry..

But like I said OP with your budget ... It better to get an abused Camry Dan an abused Babyboy.

With luck, OP can get a neat baby boy or camry within his budget....


But as with all Nigerian used cars, one has to spend some more money to bring them up to one's taste...and other things being equal, a Honda baby boy's parts are far cheaper than that of a 1999 camry....

I bought my own baby boy for 350k and spent about 100k getting her up to standard....and car is serving very well...and best of all, it doesn't draw attention...after all, every Tom, Dickand Harry in the North is cruising a Baby Boy grin.....I cruise anonymously, quietly and in reasonable comfort cool...

See pics of her while taking siesta grin ....

I can see you want to sell yours, what's the major issue with Honda baby boy?

Honestly, why will you wanna drive a 20 year old car?
How would you feel?!
Anyways, if you buy that Camry for 500k, you will need extra money to make it run good on that Abuja-Kaduna highway else those VW golf will make you a laughing stock.
You may need to change parts e.g Tyres, Lubricants, shaft, fix AC, body work etc.
You'll need at least extra 100k.

I drive a Honda Accord 2007, and its so good; Speed, fuel economy, cheap part etc.
You can get a good one for 700k.

Bottom line, save more money to buy a good car that will give you rest of mind than buy an abused car that may kill you in the process.
Even if you must buy a car by force, do not buy anything older than 15 years old.

attached is my baby resting.

Comment on the right thread.
Besides
1: I'm based in Lagos
2: babyboy up for sales isn't mine... Owner is relocating to his personal building which has very poor road network hence he wants to sell before raining season
3: engine is toks car was backed over a year but still neat has he hardly use it.

Fixes required are minor... Like inner door handle (as seen in pics) central lock system.. no major electrical issue
4. Car runs fine with chilling AC to go with.

Most especially Not selling with plates... Reason for the dip sales

My dear,
I'm speaking from experience. I only hope those who are condemning Honda are doing so out of experience too.
Let them confirm they owned the car, drove the car and it pulled rather than judging what they see on the highways of Honda cars that pull... The same highway that other Honda's still ride and pass.

Re: Which Is Best Car To Buy Between Honda Baby Boy And Camry 1999 My Budget Is 500k by eRex(m): 4:34pm On Apr 03, 2020
I independently disagree.

This is the link to the very first baby boy I owned.

https://www.nairaland.com/2998497/registered-1998-babyboy-4-quick#43903124

I knew how much I lobbied to get it cos it was extremely clean... Well used by a soldier though.
I used it for a year....and sold it even higher than I got it after a year... I learnt a lot about using babyboy via the car.

I have bought used and resold quite a lot of Naija used babyboy... From sellers who feel babyboy is worthless to buyers who knows it value.

Dear dealers if you have a babyboy u disike because it does not have resale value ...
Please I'm really interested cos I have just the right market for it.


Below is my current Naija used baby boy acquired 4years ago.
Car is a daily use especially by my wife
Fixes done over the course include
1 total change of ball joint and tutors (done once car was bought)
1 flywheel change
1 gear switch change.

I guess someone will be saying I don't use it...shior ... I stay in Ikorodu.... Our road and messed up and crazy when it rains..

See 2nd picture of part of my wife route to work when it rains..(she will not even drive those days rather take a bike) just to tell you how bad the road network is

Even my wife won't let me sell it cos she claims it's devoid of issue.

It still boils down to the fact that when you buy a Naija used car.... Get a well maintened car
