A Guide to Select A Used Japanese Car

We’re happy that you have decided to buy a used car for yourself. Cars have become more of a necessity these days than being a luxury. Buying a used vehicle is always a wise option if you are looking to buy it at a tight budget or are planning to be economical. Buying a used vehicle from Japan causes confusions due to a large number of options to choose. Japanese automakers release a new model every year with differences that make the decision tough. To select the right vehicle, you need to do an in-depth research. But there is a probability that you might end up being confused at the end of the research. The most common questions that we get from confused buyers are: What type of vehicle should I opt for? How much do I need to buy the vehicle? etc If you are looking for answers to these questions or are confused regarding which car to choose, we will help you here.

The content on this page will guide you regarding the selection of a used vehicle based on the type of car that you would need, the purpose that it will serve and the budget that you will need to purchase that vehicle.

In this guide, we cover three main categories:
1. Used cars by type
2. Used cars by purpose
3. Used cars by budget

1. Buying a Used Car by Type

When buying your first car, there are number of things you need to keep in mind among which the first is to figure out the type of car you are in need of This may depend on the size and number of people who are to travel in the car on regular basis. For this purpose, we have come up with some major types that will help you out in selecting the best car for yourself.

2. Understanding the purpose of buying a vehicle

When deciding upon buying a vehicle, you need to understand the purpose that you expect it to serve. There’s a lot more that needs to be addressed about a vehicle than just moving from one point to another. Like if you are planning to use the vehicle to fulfil your family’s travelling needs, you need to check the seating capacity of the vehicle with reference to your family size. This is necessary in order ensure a safe and comfortable commute for your family. On the other hand, if you are planning on using the vehicle to transport goods, you need to know the average quantity and volume of goods that you plan on transporting. We will further explain these to help you with your decision as you go through the page.

Cars/Vans for Family and Corporate Commute

Do you often plan family trips? Do you have a small business and plan to use a small vehicle for goods distribution instead of a truck or a mini truck? Do you plan corporate trips that require cars with a relatively larger seating capacity? The ideal type of cars that you’ll need for such purposes would be SUVs or vans/mini vans. These type of vehicles allow customization, increasing seating capacity, are powerful for longer tours/trips and can carry relatively larger amounts of loads from one point to another. The seats in such vehicles are usually convertible, allowing more space for your luggage/goods, making them useable for more than one purpose.

Off Road Cars

A used and heavy duty off-road car is perfect for anyone who is not afraid to drive on rough tracks or turf—dirt roads, gravel, potholes and of course mud. Many are equipped with AWD (all-wheel drive) systems that can get you out of slippery situations no matter what the weather.

3. Formulating Your Budget for the Used Car

Now that you have decided on the type of used car you are determined to buy, featuring its purpose too, it is time to calculate the budget you are to spend on the car. Determining the budget will also help you out in further narrowing down the choices.


You need to assure the exact amount you want to spend when buying a used car. For this purpose you may have to separate your wants from your needs. Pull out an estimate amount after cutting down all the other household and necessary expenditures. Be sure to include all of the costs of owning a car, such as fuel, parking fees, mileage, regular maintenance, and insurance. All these expenses add up to the monthly payments you'll be making on your used car, which are definitely lesser than spending on a new one.
