Unataka kununua mkebe.

Have to heard it running ? Try and listen for strange sounds on the engine.

This is a good deal if you want to build it to your liking.

Advise. Gari ni body. Engine you can replace, unaekelea ingine.

There is something special kupeleka ka old school ka clean.

Kuna time nimeona mitsubishi galant safi sana. Hio gari hunijazz juu it has a sporty look. Nakumbuka nikiwa campus first year nilisema hio ndio itakuwa my first car.

Gari na two chuani, nikasema wacha niingie online i read kuhusu mashida zake. page ya kwanza ilikam ni ya kijiji, nika zichambua nikaona elders are against it. nilikuwa nimepigia hesabu vile naweza i refurbish. engine mpya na anything else ni replace. si amini mafundi vile. Elders walini vunja moyo. Ningeweka toyota yangu kando nijivunie galant.

Very sexy car but Galants achia wahindi, hao ndio huwezana nazo. Sio eti ni Gari mbaya but mfuko lazima ikue na kakitu. However, you should have done your research on the year of the particular model you wanted. Galants issues differ a lot depending on the model year.

Old school ya 1997 inakaa fiti sana. Nilipiga hesabu ya engine nikaona inataka around 100k hapo nikaona sio mbaya.

Proof that, everyday a fool is born.

I know a certain struggling Luo engineer who bought a similar but white jalopy. Alikuwa anachukua off-days kushinda garage. Even the pussy he was after didn’t seem enjoyable anymore.

Mkebe ya 1991 itakumalizia pesa. Moneypit

Watu uweka engine ya Nyoka

Buy such cars as a second car only. Always make sure you have a ka-spare toyota or somewhere so ata kama inaleta shida, you wont be stranded.

But kwa 260k, it seems a good deal

Shida yake kubwa Huwa engine ama? Hii ni kitu naekelea bila wasi wasi.

why not sell the one you have, add the 260k and buy a newer merc?

Sio ball joint issues, hard starts, kuzimia Barabara ni, overheating of transmission oil… Lakini kama umeamua go ahead.

The idea is always have a car that is cheap to maintain, super-reliable and will practically never let you down. You should always have one car like this in your garage. Cars like a corolla, premio and so on. Probably something in the 1.5 to 2000cc range

From there now you can start trying to buy stuff like this merc. I would rather wait on the merc, save abit more money, and get a newer merc. But dont sell the reliable one coz it means you will always have transportation.

You may sell it, get a newer merc then that breaks down and parts for mercs cost quite abit. If you had the reliable car, you just continue using it as you park the merc and wait for cash to come in for you to fix it.

In future, you can then sell that merc to get a better one if you desire but always keep the super reliable car.
