A friend also giving his own view said Nissan Sunny is characterised with having Electric faults. How true is this?

Honda City if you are ok with the leg room and space inside. If not, the Sunny is ok.

I feel you bro. Have you seen the Brilliance cars from Hyra motors? Damn those cars are mad fine. My friend is actually d CEO of Hyra motors.

Check out the Kia cars below. Na wah oh. But so far the greatest flaw I have heard of is the evolution of the Volvo cars. The 2010 model S60 is totally flawed. From seamless straight lines to curvy rubbish. People loved the straight lines. What do you think?

Thanks sultaan for your advice. But the other cars you listed are kinda flashy. That is exactly what I am afraid of. Would have gotten the C class but it is expensive.

I am just being paranoid since my encounter with the 'men of the night'.

@sojioguns

That door test is something I do too, a crappy car sounds like a metallic clank and a loaded ar sounds solid.

Before you get the S60, take a look at the 2006 altima, and since you've decide not to get armed robbers car anymore the Ford Fusion, Chevy Impala are options.Look at Acura TL, and Lexus ES300 which you'll get or same price as Volvo.If you're thinking of fuel economy, its I5 Vs V6

Back to topic if you want luxury in your car, either get an American spec, or American car. Honda city and Nissan Sunny are not American spec

It is so strange that Nigerians do not appreciate the Volvo. These cars are almost as expensive as Mercs in the US but here they stay so long in car dealerships. The fuel consumption of the s60 is good. 2.5l engine inline 5 cylinder. About 26 - 30mpg. I hear there is a Volvo workshop near ladipo. Is that true?

My Yaris was bought brand new (no salvage) from Encino Dealer LA, California. My uncle lives in Cali. It was a Yaris S, which should have more options than other. They said it had power package, all season tyres, blah blah. Anyways, I cant use that car as a first car again. The mileage was great though.

I believe you sha as per d 2nd hand value of toyotas. My question is, why are people always too concerned about 2nd hand value??

Right now, I am on d prowl leaving the japanese makers all together and going for a Volvo S60.

What do ya think?

My Toyota Yaris didnt come with a cover too. It was my panel beater (Baba Ayaba) that bought it from Ladipo (a corolla cover) and fixed it. As for longevity I dont advise any Nigerian to use a car in Naija for more than 4 or 5 years.

The Ford Focus is about N2.6m and if u use it for 4 years and sell it for 1.8 - 2m thats a good deal. What parts? Briscoe has whatever you need for reglar servicing up until about d 100000km mileage mark. Anything major that happens before 100,000km would be under warranty. The cars are brand new and really, they werent manufactured to break down.

Personally of the three cars d Ford is the finest, but to me thats where it stops

soji those functions in the ford are what scares me the most of the 3 as u can see its the most sophisticated and automated of the three but why on earth did ford forget to cover the engine from below

I was shocked when i opened the hood and saw that it was totally opened underneath, that car is not meant for this country especially with the wet and rainy season, imagine what would happen when the fan belt picks up some puddles of water of the road, with the degree of automation in that car there would be problems, i still find it hard to understand why the bottom is opened.

Another thing is it longdevity of use, i dont see that car lasting up to 8yrs talk less of a second hand value

the other two have second hand values

Also maintenance and parts are scarce in the ford, everywhere with the sunny and also with the city,

i dont see the ford as an everyday nigerian car

, just my 2cents,

@ Sojiguns, Thanks. but Promise72 stated the rational for his ratings which I think are quite strong.

all the options are brand new, and you are quite right about Ford's sturdy and safety.

have you considered its fuel consumption and service issues as parts aren't in the market now?

Personally, I would take the new Ford Focus first, then the city and the Sunny.

The Focus feels very sturdy and safe and drives better than the city, which is in d same class as the Toyota Yaris and Suzuki SX4.

Uve got like 100,000km factory warranty, which Briscoe FOrd honours well and the truth is i doubt if u want to drive the car for more than 4-5 years.
