Why It's Best For Buying Quality Used Cars from Japan?

Gino Carpio
February 20, 2008

Searching for used cars to buy can be a real drag if you don’t know what to do or where to search. The best way to go about it is to go online. However, a perfunctory exploration on the Internet using keywords, such as “used cars” or “used vehicles,” will lead you to some thousands of listings that will take forever to explore. And the fact that Internet fraud is increasingly gaining wide-spread notoriety these days is not really helping at all.

There are a lot of issues confronting any would-be buyer of used cars. Trust, logically, is one of the largest issues buyers have when buying or planning to buy used cars that they haven’t really seen with their own eyes. This issue is further compounded by the fact that online used car exporters or dealers require 50% or more advance payment and confidence that the vehicle described on the website is indeed in the same condition as keyed out.

There is no substitute for conducting due-diligence on a used car dealer for the purpose of confirming its legitimacy or trustworthiness. Reportedly, one way to do this is by checking whether the company is registered with the proper official channels or authorities.

Moreover, anyone seriously considering buying a used car would do well to choose one coming from Japan for several good reasons:

• Japanese used vehicles usually come with relatively low mileages as a result of congested urban areas, overpriced toll roads and tight holiday schedules.

• Japanese used vehicles are free of abuse due to the strictly enforced speed limits of 30km/h in urban areas, 50km/h on highways and 80 to 100km/h on toll roads.

• Vandalism and car theft are virtually unknown in Japan, and alarm systems are still rare on Japanese cars.

• Features, including power steering, electric windows and retractable mirrors, climate control, ABS and airbags are considered standard equipment.

• Japanese people believe in the stigma attached to using or acquiring anything “used”.
