What Do I Need To Know Before Buying A Nigerian Used Honda Car? by PhDinView: 10:44am On Mar 24, 2021
Good day guys,

Please I need advice urgently. Between Honda Accord, 2007 model and Honda Civic 2004 which should I go for?

Also, what are the pros and cons of buying either of these cars?

Thanks for your advice, I'll keep in mind the fuel consumption rate and leg issue that you pointed out.

Aside pulling off of legs under is the best in terms of fuel consumption. The 98 model my brother own I will buy #2000 from from Agege to inside ( Maya to be precise ) and despite traffic on ikorodu roads my brother 2k fuel still intact . And the legs re still okay . But when u hear the cranky noice just go to either owode onirin or jankara for changing of the legs oo

Things you should know:
Honda is good for aesthetics but cannot be tasked as hard as Toyota.

If anyone tries to argue about the above ask them why are there no transport operators that uses Honda counterpart models of Toyota for commercial transportation.
Eg.
Sienna vs Odyssey
Camry vs Accord
Corolla vs Civic
Hilux vs Ridgeline
Hiace vs ??

Some will tell you that Honda Ball Joint issue is all about maintenance culture. Ask them why do you have to be conscious of being stranded whereas fake Toyota ball joints of 1,500naira can take you as far 30k kilometers while branded ones can take you more than 150k kilometers.

When the gearbox starts dealing with you don't think anyone is fighting you from the village. It's normal with Honda

It doesn't have a strong resale value like Toyota.
A friend bought direct 2009 Honda Pilot at 4m but it's being priced at 700k after 22months in Nigeria. Compare with resale value of 2009 Highlander or even 2006.

2007 accord is a far better deal, make sure u check your ball joint once in a while also make sure ur upper and lower arms are good. with all these checks u will never have issues with the legs. ive used this accord for 5 years and its a perfect car.

1) Take along a trusted mechanic to check it out before purchase, ensure the mechanic has a scanning tool.

2) Check VIN (Vehicle History), If it’s an accidental vehicle, run away!

3) Bargain for a very cheap price, because there will definitely be surprises (you cant escape it)

Happy Buying!

You need to know that-
1. It is highly fuel efficient.
2. Has one of the best power-steering technologies.
3. Has reliable engines.
4. Has very excellent road holding.
5. But it’s front-wheel technology is seriously suspect though it should be apparent to the owner before it gives right in the middle of the road!
6. You must be prepared to maintain the front-wheels regularly.
Safe driving.
