Nissan Teana Buying guide in Kenya

When buying your car, there are dos and don’ts that can help you. First, you will need to come up with a clear budget, your intended spend should cover all costs, this includes the buying cost and other additional costs such as insurance payment. If you are going to involve professionals such as lawyers, include this in the budget too.

Next, decide whether you want a new Teana or a secondhand, more so, choose between importing or buying your car locally. Next, you will need to choose the model and grade of car you will buy, to achieve this easily, have a list of features/specs that you want. Go ahead and pick the one with these specs.

The above choices will definitely influence the cost of the car, for example, an imported car might at times cost less than those in local yards, this is because there are no additional costs such as carwash and security costs that the seller might push to the buyer. A higher grade will also cost more, the same case applies to models. The next thing hence will be to look at the cost of cars with specifications that you chose, if the prices are above your budget, see what you can forego to fit your budget.

When it comes to fuel consumption a Front Wheel Drive consumes slightly less but is more suited to towns and paved roads compared to the All-Wheel Drive that can be used even in rural areas.

Purchase stage

Here are things to do during and before completing the purchase:

  • Check for the general condition of the vehicle
  • Use a mechanic to do the inspection for you especially if the car is a secondhand
  • Do thorough verification of the documents including verifying that the engine and chassis number are what is in the logbook
  • Check for the current owner of the car on the NTSA portal(for secondhand)
  • Pay through the bank, never pay cash
  • We recommend you use a lawyer when transferring ownership
  • Be wary of cons and fraudsters
