It isn't. My first cars to drive(after a 504) were a b15 and a 110. I can tell you for a fact that the b15 couldn't handle the abuse I'd give it. Squeaks and creaks all over. Mara sijui chuma gani ya miguu imevunjika. If I had treated it better, it would have been better. The 110 on the other hand, mahali umegongesha ndio mahali unarepair na gari inarudi mpya.
My advice is you buy from beforward they've got offices here in town (Avenue plaza). Beforward because you can easily get the history of the car from reliable sources. They buy from Japanese auctions. If you want to dig some more you can even know the price they bought it and the grade of the car so that you can bargain further. Act fast because your car is likely to cost 100,000 more after Uhuru signs the excise duty bill (not sure if you can beat that timeline). Cars on beforward are also approximately $500 cheaper than those on SBT or even more.
