Cars Below 1 Million in Nigeria

It’s not that there are no 1 million naira cars in Nigeria, there are, and in fact, a lot of them. The problem is that many of the car deals you’ll see are managed by middlemen who increase the price for their own gain. For example, the original owner may say that they want to sell their vehicle for 1.1 million but an agent will convince them that nobody will pay this amount. Now, the owner will reduce the price to about 800k, while the agent lists it for sale at 2 million. You can now see where the problem is, right?

So, yes, there are cars below 1 million naira in Nigeria in good condition, with working AC, engine, and paperwork. You just have to know where to look, especially those distress sales from the real owners. We have lots of these cars available, and hopefully, you’ll find one here for yourself.

What to Look for Before You Pay

Nobody really likes to buy Nigerian used cars when we have clean, first grade foreign used (tokunbo). As you can see, all available cars are either Naija used or toks. But if you don’t really have money, you can still settle for Nigerian used, and you may be lucky to buy from someone who knows how to maintain a car.

Even when you don’t have money, there are some Nigerian used cars you should avoid. Example is Mercedes Benz, unless you want to learn a bitter lesson. You won’t even drive this car up to 6 months before you start spending money on repairs that can make you bankrupt.

Now, before you pay the seller, below are a few helpful tips you should consider:

  • Bring a trusted mechanic with you. Don’t use the seller’s mechanic no matter what.
  • Have the mechanic inspect and even diagnose the car.
  • Check the transmission.
  • Don’t buy any car that has accident history after you check the VIN, unless you are willing to spend on repairs.
  • Verify all the papers to avoid buying a stolen or no-duty vehicle.
  • Check the ownership history. If this car has changed hands many times, don’t buy!
  • Avoid Nigerian used German cars.

After you secure this deal, go ahead with the registration in your state. On your end, make sure you practice good maintenance culture to keep the car running for a long time. If you maintain it in good shape, you’ll be able to sell it easily when the time comes.
