Ford Maintenance In Nigeria: How Easy?

I intend acquiring a FORD ESCAPE, I was advised not try it as I may not be able to cope with the stress associated with maintaining a FORD in Nigeria. But I do see quite a number of people driving FORDs especially here in PH where I live.

So folks, whats your take on this? If  you drive a FORD, what has been your experience? How easy is it to maintain a FORD in Nigeria?

It will be hard to get the parts at Owode Onirin or Ladipo - And I can assure you it will come to it someday.

The Briscoe thing is that you should ask yourself IF they will for instance have the fuel pump of your FORD in stock like today for instance. I will advise that you do some very practical research before buying;

Get their number for instance - call them and ask for just very common things you might have to look into; Fuel pump, headlamps and Gear (Im not a pessimist - Im being very practical with you).

You can also try and go to Ladipo and ask for the parts of your vehicle - Just these things. Please bear in mind that the prices of parts is not necessarily determined by the car its to be used on BUT by the scarcity of that spare part.

Please be wise with your decision; A car you will park for 3 months because of a brake pad or disc is not a very smart decision IF its your main/only ride.

I've got the machine right here in Nigeria.

Bricoe Ford's consignment isn't in yet, and they are very discrete about the price for now.

I'm sure i'll give you a very good deal comparing the Explorer i sold for N3.7m with just 12,000miles compared to N8.6m of Briscoe ford.

Up for really serious persons.

I'll upload when i make up mind, and reasons best known to me.

My contact still remains 08037271969

kind regards.

Briscoe ford has made all things easy for ford owner, neither have i heard any complains about ford cars from people i know.

I'll say go ahead if you are a ford fan.They are very good cars.

just sold and '07 explorer last week, and the person keeps calling and telling of his oversatisfaction especially it's interior.

If you may change your mind, I have a Ford Edge. it's '09 and less than 900 miles, red in color.

you may give me a call if you need details on 08037271969.

kind regards.

Xparm,

Fear no more. RT Briscoe is now the authorized dealer of Ford in Nigeria! I am also aware that they have certified mechanics around the country too. This is good news for Ford owners and prospective owners. You may want to contact them or go to their website - www.rtbriscoe.com. The only thing is that I am not sure they sell Ford Escape but please call them to verify.
