When you look for a used car from Japan, you will be surprised at the number of different brands and models available. The level of comfort and luxury inside the vehicles is simply amazing. But buying a Japanese used car seems to be an uphill task to many Ghanaians due to various reasons such as language barrier, transportation issues, and so on. However, for people that are well-informed about things to consider while buying Japanese used cars, it is nothing short of a walk in the park.

Here are some tips that will guide you through when buying Japanese used cars in Ghana:

1. Research available brands and models at your disposal before fixing an appointment with any dealers or sellers. Having an idea about the available options will help you compare and contrast different cars.

2. Do not immediately fall for low prices since it might be a sign that the car is either stolen or defective. You can always rely on the dealer's reputation or consult with them before making a decision to buy Japanese used cars. Another thing never rushes into any agreement; take your time and weigh options.

3. Always ask the dealer to help you conduct a vehicle inspection at a nearby garage or workshop. If the dealer refuses, it might be an indication that he wants to sell you damaged cars in Japan at unreasonably low prices.

4. Of course, go for second-hand Japanese cars that have a warranty.

5. Although it might be a bit tiresome to fix an appointment with the dealer, try to keep it so you don't have to spend time searching for your preferred car/dealer in Japan. Also, when you do finally get the car of your choice from a particular dealer, there is no need to rush.

6. Get from local dealers since they are more trustworthy and transparent with their dealings as compared to those dealing with Ghanaians from a distance. You can always ask for referrals from friends, colleagues, and family members.

7. Before finalizing the deal, make sure that you check out the car's chassis number, engine number, and VIN. This helps ensure you are buying the right car/brand.

8. Don't be afraid to ask questions, no matter how silly they may seem. When in doubt, feel free to consult the dealer.

9. Remember, when in Japan it is important that you do not display any signs of greediness, anger, or frustration. Be patient and take your time.

10. Always ask for the dealer's identification before finalizing the deal. This is to make sure that you are dealing with a certified dealer.
