Six important things that you should consider when buying a car in Kenya.

Buying a car is not as easy as it seems. This is because if you want to make a good purchase and make sure that you do not spend much money, there are many factors that you need to consider. Below are some factors that you should consider.


When buying a car in Kenya, you really need to be keen about this important factor. This is because most cars in Kenya do not come with zero milage unless you are buying it from a company dealer such as Toyota kenya or land Rover. Since most of the cars in Kenya are bought from auctions in Japan, they might probably have been used for sometime. The main reason why you need to consider the milage of the car is because of the price. The lower the milage then the higher the price of the car. There are also some crooked car dealers who like to tamper with the car milage so that they can charge you more money.

Year of manufacture.

This is one of the most important factors to consider when buying any car. This is because not all cars are perfect and there might have been some years of manufacture that you would want to avoid. Even though most car manufacturers always recall problematic models, most of them are not always returned for correction and they find themselves in the country.

Availability of spare parts.

Spare parts play a huge role in ensuring that your vehicle bis in perfect condition. Buying a car that has readily available spare parts in the country will save you lots of money as they come cheap and easy to maintain.


This is another important factor to consider because cars that are not reliable will cost you a fortune to maintain. You might also find yourself spending more time in the garage waiting for your car to be fixed instead of enjoying it.

Resale value.

When you are buying your car, it is very important to consider the resale value of the car that you want to buy. This is mainly because it might not be last car you are buying and you might need to get rid of it. Make sure to buy a car that its resale value is high so as to get the maximum profit when reselling it.

Fuel efficiency.

Fuel plays a huge role in your car. This means that if you go for a car with high fuel consumption, then you might end up leaving your car at rest or even selling it because it becomes too hard to meet the cost of maintainance. Incase you decide to go for a gazzler, you should first ensure that you have enough money to maintain the vehicle.
