Tips When Buying a Used Toyota

For a Toyota car under 1 million, don’t expect so much, especially if it is Nigerian used. If you fancy toks, then you’ll see something just above 1 million naira.

When buying a Toyota, don’t trust anything the seller tells you. That’s why it’s even better to buy offline after spreading word of mouth that you need a car at this rate. You’ll mainly know this car when you arrive for physical inspection, so don’t pay before pre-purchase inspection.

When you arrive, verify if the ownership is legit. If the seller claims that the registered owner is not available, don’t buy. Now, let’s see the things you’ll look at.

1. Inspect the Body

Don’t expect to buy a first body Nigerian used Toyota for 1 million. But that doesn’t mean you won’t see one. A first body means that a car hasn’t been panel beaten and filled with fillers before repainting. Usually, it’s toks that you can trust to be first body but even Nigerian used can be first body too if the direct owner is a careful driver.

2. Check the Interior

Check if the interior is falling apart or still in good shape. If it only needs cleaning and a bit of work, that’s okay. Don’t expect a luxury interior. If the interior has a bad smell, it means it has been parked unused for a long time. You really have to be careful here.

3. Inspect the Engine

Check if the engine has been opened or worked on before. It’s very likely that the engine has been worked on at some point, unless you are pricing a distress sale deal. Look at the bolts and nuts or keys sealing the engine to know if it has been opened. Check the chassis in front of the radiator as well.

4. Look for Signs of Rust

Have a quick walk around the car and see if rust is causing holes on the bodywork. If any, this car won’t be reliable when it rains.

5. Inspect the Electrical Components

If you notice poorly installed wiring and tapes everywhere, ask questions. If the answer is not reasonable, don’t buy.

6. Look for Leaks

Start with the spot where the car was parked and see if there are any leaks. If any, find out which fluid is seeping through, whether it’s engine oil, transmission fluid, radiator coolant, etc.

7. Check the Tyres

They can be worn no problem, but check for tread wear, is it worn on one side, along the middle, both edges? They all mean different things. A car with a bad axle is bad news.

8. Test Drive

Take this car for a test drive where you’ll observe the following:

  • How the gears change
  • How the engine revs
  • How the gears change and
  • How smooth the engine sounds

If you hear any abnormal noises from the engine, it’s a problem you have to weigh the cost of repairs before you buy. You can easily fix other issues but when it concerns the engine and gearbox, it’s tricky.

Don’t forget to go with a scanner, or bring your own mechanic if you don’t have good knowledge. A mechanic should check for sludge in the engine because Nigerians generally have a bad vehicle maintenance culture, so you’re likely to see a Toyota car with sludge due to wrong engine oil being used for a long time. It also means that the engine has been abused by the owner.

You won’t see a perfect Toyota car below 1 million naira but that doesn’t mean you should buy a car that will break down at the next traffic light.
