When talking of the location, you can expect the Ford Escape price in Mombasa to differ from the Ford Escape price in Nairobi. 

There is no doubt buying a new automobile from dealers is expensive to many. The option of purchasing a Used Ford Escape for sale in Kenya by owners may be enticing.

A used vehicle is cheaper in terms of the initial price and insurance payment. Its resale value is higher since the steepest decline in depression is over.

But you won’t enjoy recent advanced features, and if it had poor maintenance from the previous owner, expect to incur a high repair cost. 

Note that it’s also tricky finding some repair parts of some old models, and the owner may fail to provide vital information regarding the vehicle. 

Buying a used Ford Escape in JiJi Nairobi might also seem a better option since you will purchase and go home with your car.

But will you get the suitable model and the color that you require? The limitation of variety, color, and high price, makes the option less favorable. 

Remember, dealers’ factors in the storage cost, employees’ wages, and the mark-up costs when determining the car costs.

You can avoid the extra cost by importing directly from Japan since currency fluctuation rates give you a chance to save some money. 

But how will you import without risking your money to scammers? That’s where comes in handy.
