Is This A Good Bargain?

An Abuja-based business man and spare parts dealer offered me this Nissan Murano for N1.7million. It is fairly used by his wife and he wants to sell it off. But the price seems too good to be true. Can the price be real for this car? Or is there something fishy?

    * CARFAX 1-Owner vehicle! 1-owner 2003 Nissan Murano SL/SE vehicles are worth an average of $2,273 more to consumers because 1-owner vehicles tend to be consistently driven and maintained. Use this as a guide when comparing vehicles.

Inspired Xpert Advice : The Car was reported to have had an accident in 2005 ( 5 years ago ) around 66,000 miles, The Vehicle has hence been used since then by owner who added over 20,000 miles, No Red Flag, No salvaged title, The Accident may be Negligible, as the car passed the approval of the DMV to be driven on the roads after the Accident. Its also a One Owner vehicle which is worth over 350,000 Naira + more, it may be a Very Good bargain.

You may want to have a mechanic, or body shop inspect the vehicle, its NOT Salvaged.

, claiming to be honest and transparent, yet outta sheer greed would never sell a car if they can't walk away with at least $5k profit. It takes one to know one indeed.

Quite a fair bargain. Run the VIN though and STILL have a very good mechanic check it up.

MAKE SURE you don't leave the mechanic alone with the owner of the car, follow him closely throughout the inspection,
