Toyota Camry Buying guide in Kenya

There are different purchase decisions that you will need to make when acquiring a Camry car. First, you should make sure not to only budget for the purchase price but also include other costs, this may include paying of professionals involved, e.g a mechanic and insurance payment.

Make sure you also have a list of all features you need on your car, this will help you pick the right model. Also, decide between a new or secondhand car, the next step will be to choose whether you are going to buy your car locally or import it.

When it comes to fuel consumption, the Hybrid Camry is the best, however, its maintenance cost is higher than those of the other two.

If the price is above your budget, see what specifics you can change or drop to get a model that will fit your budget and still fit your intended use.

Before completing the purchase, check for the general condition of the vehicle. Also, make sure that you use a mechanic to do the inspection for you especially if the car is secondhand. Additionally, verify the documentation and ensure that the engine number and chassis number are what is in the logbook. Be wary of cons too, don’t pay in cash, use the bank instead.
