Why Most Of The Cars That Are Sold In Kenya Are Not Warrantied By The Manufacturer.

In Kenya, there are two types of car buyers. The first ones are those who purchase used cars and the second ones are those who purchased brand new cars.

The number of car buyers who purchase brand new cars is quite minimal since they are quite expensive. If you want to purchase a brand new car in Kenya, you should be ready to spend a minimum of 2.5 million Kenyan shillings unless you are going to purchase the Proton Saga which is the cheapest brand new car in Kenya.

When purchasing a car, several people are always looking for a warranty from the manufacturer. However, most Kenyans do not get to enjoy it because the vehicles they are purchasing do not come directly from the manufacturer.

The reason why most of the cars in Kenya do not come with a warranty is because of where they are purchased. Several cars in Kenyan showrooms are foreign used and have been bought from auctions in Japan. This means that the manufacturer does not have any access to the vehicle. Apart from that, the vehicles might be old such that their warranty period has lapsed.

If you feel like you need to purchase a car with a warranty, your best option in Kenya is by visiting the car manufacturer's official dealer. Like if you want to purchase a Toyota vehicle, you will have to visit Toyota Kenya and if it's a Nissan, you will have to visit Nissan Kenya and for Mercedes-Benz, you will have to visit DT Dobie.
