What about Budget ya 2.4M?
Harrier 2012 written off. I liked it but looking for advise if there's an alternative.
Kila wiki nateremka Western and daily to Machakos from Nai. Heavy foot (with this subaru hapana) and small fam. Safety is what I prefer.

Is it true that this car has gearbox issues. Na pia engine errors all the time?
The dsg transmission is very sensitive,it requires prudent maintenance or it will fail.The wet clutch dsg transmission is more reliable than the dry clutch dsg version.On the error s bit be very careful who does maintenance work on your car,hapa hakuna kirinyaga road antics ,you will find yourself with very expensive bills.

From my little experience in motoring, if you don't have a family or your family is small (2 kids maximum), the only practical car you will get at that price in a good condition is a Subaru impreza NA. Anything else will be a very big compromise on practicality and quality. Dudu u aweza pata but haitakupeleka mbali. Other second hands worth 500k zitakuwa zimechapa mbaya.

I am assuming you are seriously considering a compact SUV. With 2.4m, your options are actually limited by your taste. Chukua Mazda CX5 ama Honda CRV kama Subaru ni ngori. Rav4 should also interest you kama gari hailali nje.
Alternatively, go second hand where you will save a tidy sum. Lexus RX300, Honda CRV(again), Rav4(again), Forester SH5 et al. Na MTU asikutishe story za garage. If you take your time utapata gari Imetumiwa na kutunzwa vizuri na mwenyewe. Good luck.

Almost all honda CRV, vanguard and harrier you see on Kenyan roads are 2 wheel drive, call them raised vans. If truly want a crossover SUV to go mashinani avoid them. Consider mazda CX5, mitsubishi RVR or outlander, Forester and Rav 4 if you want a real SUV
