Why Japanese used cars have great condition?
1. Great public transportation system leads to low car usage and low mileage
Japan has a super convenient public transportation network, especially in the large cities and metropolitan areas. Our public transportation is famous for its superb service and punctuality so most of us often commute by trains or buses, not by our private cars. For that reason, Japanese used cars have very low mileage.
2. Strict inspection system
In our country, it is compulsory for every car to go through a safety and emission inspection called SHAKEN once in 2 years (for brand new cars, 1st inspection is after 3 years). Our government strictly runs this inspection to check the road worthiness and environment-friendliness of each car. So if a car has any problem, the owner needs to fix that problem for that car to pass the inspection. The older the car is, the higher the inspection, maintenance and fixing cost could be. Hence, many people prefer to sell their cars after a few years and buy a newer, better one, rather than keeping a used car with those high cost. That’s why there are plenty of Japanese used vehicles being sold while they are still in very good condition.
3. We take a great care of our cars
Another secret behind the surprisingly good condition of Japanese used vehicles are our culture of love and care for our car. We treat our cars very gently and follow the strict schedule of maintenance. This is the reason why Japanese used cars for sale look just like new.
