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




Don't run the risk of buying used cars/Toks with costly hidden problems

Know what you're buying before it's too late.

Avoid that mistake before you buy!

Major accident damage? Flood damage? Odometer Fraud? Avoid making a potentially costly mistake when buying a used/tokunbo car.

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.
Very correct.
I'm still driving mine and it's cool.

Never had fears about ball joints or whatever cos I do whenever I service the baby, it must be a general service.

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.

The engines on Honda make sense die..

Mine drives live a lamborghini aventador..
Excellent road holding is superb too, not like those featherweight vehicles.

I love my Honda.

In Nigeria, there is a premium for Toyota because they tend to fail less and have an abundance of mechanics and spares

in naija street, you cant pack your toyota anyhow. within 5 mins, a thief will disarm and naked a toyota..(Gear box )...it takes a minutes to remove that thing. but for honda civic, u cant remove the box easily because its well hidden.

If the road to your house is bad then learn how to fix the ball joint by yourself.

You can go for 06 Civic (America) very rugged and fuel efficient..

Please go with a competent mechanic and also run a diagnostic test (scan).it’s very essential to avoid premium tears..

Good luck

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
But if the leg is fixed properly after a break out, will it start to work well?

Buy accord 07...bring out like 12k or so and buy original OEM ball joints and forget about ball joint removal for at least 3 years... I used babyboy...4 year.. No joints pulled out... Even with bad roads and rough driving...
For the gear.... Use original Honda aft dw1...and your gear will never give issues.. Ensure you do not remove thermostat..
Go with a good mechanic to inspect the car.

You can get original Honda parts from luvinhubby or gazzuzz

Honda civic is the best in terms of fuel economy and no leg pulling out
Also Honda accord 2010 upwards no leg issues.
Am using 2006 civic, thanks God never give me problems whatsoever.
I do ,,,,,,,,
Leg maintenance every 3 months
Oil every 6 months
Re: What Do I Need To Know Before Buying A Nigerian Used Honda Car? by Surelay: 9:53pm On Mar 25, 2021
Most people that said Honda is bad were talking because of perspective of Nigerian especially we in southern parts towards Honda, in the Northern parts they value Honda than Toyota.

Anyway, in america HONDA beats Toyota .

Top 10 Most Popular Cars in America (2020)

1. Nissan Altima

2. Honda Accord

3. Chevrolet Malibu

4. Honda Civic

5. Chevrolet Impala

6. Ford Focus

7. Toyota Corolla

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.
i sold my camry tiny light after 10 years of use for over 400k

Why buy Honda cars with the regular cases of ball joint pulling off?
Toyota cars are stronger with wonderful fuel economy.
