JAPANESE USED CAR
I would like to take this opportunity to let you know what has been a problem to you about the Japanese used car.First of all Japanese used cars are of LOW PRICES , GOOD SERVICES & CARS ARE OF HIGH QUALITY.
The whole world is aware of the fact that used Japanese used cars are the cheapest in this planet. Moreover, the used Japanese cars come with many bundled accessories, which make buying a used Japanese car more profitable. All the used Japanese cars that are sold are in top condition. The looks of the used Japanese cars are as good as the new ones.
With all these good things, I know you are wondering why these Japanese used cars are sold for cheap prices? below are the reasons:
1.New Car Pricing In Japan
In all Asian countries combined, the pricing of new cars in Japan is the lowest. The underlying reason is the large economy of scale (Japan is the third largest economy in the world) which allows the manufacturers to sell their car at a much lower price in the local market. Moreover, the Japanese are used to buy newer models whenever they arrive in the market. So, they frequently change their cars and sell the old ones for cheap. Besides, Japan boasts one of the finest public transportation systems in the world with high-speed metro rail that links major economic hubs. So, many Japanese people prefer that to owning any personal means of transportation, to save time.
All these factors together forge a system where cars are sold at very low prices and eventually piles up the number of almost new or slightly used vehicles.
2.The Cost of Dumping
Well, if you are thinking that Japanese people just dump their cars, you are wrong. The costs of throwing away anything in Japan, starting from appliance to cars, come with an expense. You will have to pay for having your car picked up and bear other costs necessary with it. So, you are losing it from both sides – firstly, you are not getting anything for what invested not so long ago; and, secondly, you are being saddled with additional costs that don’t even concern you. So rather than following this suit, the Japanese tend to sell their almost new cars at cheaper prices. The price may even be slashed to 50% or more of the original.
3.Harsh Environmental Policy
As an island nation, Japan has always championed the ideas of major environmental issues in major world platforms. Especially the risks pertaining to increasing carbon emission are a huge concern for Japan and many other countries in the region. Domestically, the government has been following strict rules and policies to maintain environmental compliance. As a part of this, the government discourages use of older vehicles.
This is one of the many reasons for Japanese car users to get rid of their cars and get new ones.
- Low Real Depreciation Value
The people of Eastern countries have a tendency to take care of their possessions, be it a living being or an unanimated object. So, it is no surprise to know that the Japanese maintain, wash, and service their cars very well. As a direct result, the car may get older and the price may fall, but the real depreciation value – that is in term of quality – doesn’t decrease that much.
That’s why i say ”even my second car i’ll by from CAR FROM JAPAN CO.LTD”
