Help me understand why most politicians and the whole country in general prefer to use Toyota SUVs?? It's like the only luxury vehicles they know ni Toyota. Personally I would prefer American made SUVs. A Cadillac, GMC or Chevrolet.

There is safety in numbers. This means spares are easily available, mechanics who are familiar with the vehicle's engineering are plenty, spares are cheap (ex Japan) etc etc. The last thing you want is a car you have to ground for one month waiting to import expensive spare parts. Or a car which no mechanic is familiar with, and when you get one, you pay through the nose because he knows that you have no choice. If your Cardillac develops serious mechanical issues in a small town like Nanyuki, you might have to tow it to Nairobi, or get a mechanic from Nairobi if you are lucky to get one. Back in my home town, a man had a good business (supermarket), and he made the mistake of importing a shiny new Hyundai. The car was very appealing, but one year down the line, it had some engine complications. The car stayed on the same spot (outside his supermarket) for over 10 years. Those from Nyahururu know of the red Hyundai outside the once Njowa Supermarket. I guess ilitolewa hapo.
