Cars Below 500,000 in Nigeria

500k looks small if you look at how expensive things have become in Nigeria. However, we still have many good cars you can buy with this budget. The best place to find cars below 5000 000 in Nigeria is offline so that you buy from the original owner. Some agents are really fond of increasing the sales price.

So, we have cars available within and around your state from direct owners. It’s easy to find a car online but most people you’ll see online are middle men or dealers. They won’t tell you the truth.

Also, available 500k cars are small cars like Golf or Baby Boy. If you buy from a very good owner, you won’t have to spend the equivalent amount for repairs.

Tips to Buy 500k Car in Nigeria

It’s possible to buy a 500k car or even cheaper as you can see in these listings. But it’s even better if you can meet a seller who is the original owner and desperately in need of cash. For a 500,000 naira vehicle, expect something that is 25 years old. Newer models are more expensive.

The reason you see overpriced cars these days is because of middlemen. The direct owners won’t sell for the same price middlemen advertise for. A lot of middlemen think that having a Jiji or Facebook account gives them the right to inflate the prices. They even openly ask for agent fees from buyers, and from sellers at the same time.

We have seen people advertise Nigerian used cars with bad transmission, engines, ACs, etc., for 3 million whereas original owners will sell them cheaper.

No matter, don’t buy a luxury car that sells for 500k, unless you are willing to spend 3 times this amount on your mechanic. You want to spend this money on used cars like VW Vento, Golf 2, Mazda 323, or Benz 190E.

So, try contacting the real owner of the car. If you are in the same state, try meeting the seller in person, and forget about agents. Original sellers will also give you true information about the maintenance, which is something middlemen do not know.
