2005 Nissan Elgrand Rider E51

Importing a car sight unseen was for me something that seemed quite a difficult and overwhelming process. But thankfully I found a good agent in Ben who by and large made the process quite smooth. I got the car I wanted, and in the condition I demanded, and as a particular customer, which I am, I can say that Ben's patience and hard work was appreciated. I would have no problems using him again if I ever import in the future.

This car is listed in the Featured section

This car may be from an export agent, Japanese dealer or some other source, it is listed here because we think it has appealing features or an excellent price. Circumstances will vary, but usually Featured vehicles are from a source where we can either have a car inspected prior to purchase, or is with someone who is able to send comprehensive and reliable information about it.

How to buy this vehicle

Please contact us and we will get in touch with the seller to ask for more information about the car and for more pictures. If the car is not from a source whom we necessarily trust we can then arrange for an inspection if the car looks promising.

Is this car eligible for import?

Yes, being a 1988 vehicle it is automatically eligible for import under the 1988 or earlier rule, with no restrictions.

Compliance costs under the 1988 and older rule will vary for each vehicle and state, but are typically around $600 - $1,200.

Is the mileage genuine?

This car falls under The J-Spec Mileage Promise. This means the car will come with the original Export Certificate (sometimes referred to as the "dereg" document) which shows recent mileage and dates recorded for this car at the previous mandatory Japanese roadworthy inspections. This paperwork can be used to show that the mileage has not been wound back for sale to deceive you, and you will receive the ORIGINAL documentation for this.

In some cases a car listed here may display the mileage currently on the speedometer but the paperwork suggests otherwise and we will learn this upon getting more information about the car, and we would then inform you. Since you always get the paperwork you will always know if there is a discrepancy, and making sure you always get the correct and true information is why The J-Spec Mileage Promise exists. The original copies of this paperwork which you will receive is why a car bought with J-Spec acting as a consultant can always be trusted.


The details about this car have been provided by the seller of the vehicle, prices and details are subject to change, and J-Spec is not responsible for the accuracy of this information. All details can be confirmed if this car is looked into in greater detail.
