kia rio is not a very good second hand car, but considering the fact that u are buying it from a bank there is a good chance the car has been well maintained.

goodluck

have you ever heard of aftermarket parts?

All you might need are Monroe shock for about N30,000 for all 4 wheels

And that is almost twice what it costs for all 4 on an American jeep

That price is not bad at all for a 5 year old car. Kia rio is not a bad car either. My friend's 2001 Rio has done 145k miles in Nija without any major issue. It's got a very good fuel economy. Just get your mechanic to inspect the car before buying, but you need to act fast.

Good luck.

You're absolutely correct. The car is cheap but parts are so expensive. This adds up to high cost of maintenance and low second hand value.
