The whole process of buying a car is not easy because you have to make many decisions regarding the model, the color and most importantly, the features that you would want. When buying a car from the Far East, things get a bit complex because you cannot see it. However, BE FORWARD has proved time and again that you can get good Japanese used cars with the click of the mouse button. How?
Rest easy, you will get a high quality car! The Government of Japan ensures that any car they sell is rigorously tested for roadworthiness. JAAI is a not-for-profit (Please note “not-for-profit”) organization that does the testing and issues a certificate. Note that no car, unless illegally sold, should leave the port of departure without the JAAI certificate.
Here are five tips to finding a great Japanese used car
1. Research widely
The most important thing in buying Japanese secondhand cars is to do research. Find information on different car models and their features, including the features you are interested in. Is the car you are interested in buying reliable and safe? Find out about fuel consumption and the price of the car. The more research you do, the more you will become informed on the type of car you should buy and the price range.
2. What you are looking for in a car
People have different needs when it comes to cars. You should know which features are important to you and look for a car that has them. This will assist in narrowing down your car options to a manageable level and you will only be left with a few car options to choose from. You should look for a car that is right for you, and a car that you can afford.
3. Openness to different models
There are so many great Japanese used cars. Be flexible and at least, read on the features & specifications, the performance, and the fuel consumption of different models. If you wanted Toyota Crown for example, you could look over a few other models like Avenza, Toyota Belta, Toyota Corolla sedan and many others.
You may be having your heart on a particular model, which may not meet your needs fully. Be open to buying a different model, which will meet your needs instead of sticking to one model. Other models may offer better features and lower prices than the model that you are into.
4. Vitals of the car
One major characteristic of used cars everywhere is that they have had a previous owner. You do not have information of how the vehicles have been used. You do not know whether the vehicle was regularly serviced or not.
You should find out the year of manufacture. For example, in some countries, there is a limit on the age of a used car that should be imported. Make sure that the used car is within the age bracket of the cars allowed on the roads. In addition, newer models have better features in terms of performance and technology than earlier models.
The car should also meet your country’s regulations in terms of age and emissions. Some countries are strict on these rules. Cars that do not fulfill all regulations on age and emissions are charged more tax.
