Lol baba Benz no be Nissan oh. Those cars are solid. I advise you use one before you bad mouth it and don't base your knowledge on some kazeem's verdict.

Buy a car with good history, change oil as at when due, give it what it requires and it WILL even outlast your Toyota clitoris which it most likely out performs too.

Toyota Clit?!

WTF

Lol why stressing yourself over am outdated naija used cls. Why didn't you tow it or hire a company to do it. U never see problem yet. Sheybi na benz u wan drive. Dont worry from 300k plus ,u go still spend another 500k. Then the cycle continues which eventually it will land on nairaland as 6months used. Dont buy benz,una no go here. U go hail later,no worry.

Now repeat after me, "Poverty get out from me"

It was 6:50 am in the morning when I called teddy that I was coming to Lagos to pick my cls up( I had paid for a thorough paint job to be meted out on the car)

I booked a flight from calabar to Lagos that same month for almost twice the normal fee! shocked

Everything went smoothly from there and I spent the night at one of those hotels in the GRA axis of ikeja.

I went down to meet up with the paint guy, and I was impressed by what I saw.

I was assigned a driver by the company to drive the car down to calabar... “Na new car be this, drive carefully “ the driver was told, but it was the complete opposite of the instructions he was meted out to that he did.

Pothole upon pothole the car entered, and I was so mad that I couldn’t shout again.

The final straw that broke the camelback was when he entered two potholes at once along sapele road, and the tyres screeched and gave up.

The passenger side tyres tore like it was riddled with bullets, and it was a bushy area.....


shocked

We heard a siren blow and a police van ordered us not to park there that hoodlums kidnapped people there...

They had to follow us to the nearest filling station, which was thankfully near an army checkpoint.


The rims had given up too at that point ( rims wey I buy 250k) cry

I was so mad I couldn’t even talk to the driver again.

The policemen came down and asked what the problem was .. they offered to bring down the tyre and sorted things for us. shocked

We had to sleep in the filling station that night for the car to be worked on the the next morning!
That particular night, without being signaled to come, 4 Warri boys helped us get new tyres and transported it to the car’s location without collecting money. I was shocked by the hospitality.

The next day, the boys again took me to where I’d get rims and everything for the car, which was beyond amazing.

I had to squeeze 3k to the supposed leader, as they refused to collect anything.

I got back to calabar yesterday afternoon, and I’m riddled with repairs worth 300k+

If you’re from delta, you guys rock! So much, as if it wasn’t for those guys, then my situation would have been lipsrsealed lipsrsealed
Next time follow asaba then hit Enugu them Ebonyi then Cross River...the road is awesome

Honestly those Nissans are made for pot holes, I entered a Nissan from okene to Lokoja some months ago, the guy just dey bash every pot/manhole on the ever degraded okene-lokoja road.

When I got to Lokoja, I had to look at the car twice again and congratulate the drive cos I can never drive my Honda that way..

Those good old days when ritualist has not infiltrated everywhere. I had similar experience with them. when I chattered a bus from Abeokuta to PH, not know the the crazy driver does not have a drivers licence. We were delayed at every check point till we got to Uhgara ( don't know if I spelt it well) by 10pm where the police their seriously refuse to allow the driver go. They had to park the vehicle in their station, so we where around the station area when two boys came to us and asked what the problem was. I explained our ordeal to them and also asked them show us where to get an hotel. But they refused and said it is over 12am already that I shouldn't waste that money that we should come to their house and pass the remaining hours in their place. I insisted I must go to the hotel, but they assured us not be afraid that nothing will happen to us. That we should just follow them. The driver finally agreed, reluctantly I followed and they actually gave us a place to sleep and we slept peacefully till the next morning.
And they didn't ask for anything.

I am demanding that Calabar seaport should be restored now to avoid risks and dangerous road trips by citizens.

Or better still, relocate seaport in Lagos to Oron or Calabar.

People buy different models of vehicle fot different reason .Mostly their choice before even the price. Mercedes brands you will agree with me is amongst the best cars in the world in all ramifications. They are durable, elegant , enjoyable and classic. Maintenance depends on the usage too and the environment you leave especially in Nigeria where most inner roads are bad. However, the
partss are costlier than other lower range vehicles like the Toyota, Honda,Nissan etc. If you can afford it with maintenance routine pls go for it.
