2004 Nissan Cima 450XV

Its been a while since receiving the car from compliance and would like to share a quick review of my import experience of my Nissan Cima.

Ben, thank you for making this experience an easy going and enjoyable process for me. I have always wanted to import a car from Japan, but have been hesitant when i thought of all the possibilities that could go wrong when importing. But your processes and knowledge on importing cars put my mind at ease. It was great that any questions i had were answered promptly and accurately.

2 months on from the car landing in SA and i'm still loving it. I have had no issues or bad surprises and its simply an amazing, good condition machine.

I am more than happy to recommend your service to anyone i know that's interested in importing a car.

Toyota Estima R50 series

Known as a Toyota Tarago locally, the Toyota Estima R50 series was released in 2006 and proved to be so popular they were kept in production right up to 2015. The Estima is Toyota's headlining people mover, in the case of the R50 upping the game significantly on the luxury features this car was equipped with, as well as the performance for those who wanted it.

Importable models feature the 206kW 3.5L engine in either front wheel drive or 4WD configuration, both with a 6 speed automatic transmission and with 7 or 8 seat arrangements. The R50 Estimas are fantastically packaged with a range of luxury features, and the 3rd row of seats folds into the floor allowing for very large cargo space, and 7 seater versions allow the second row of seats to slide right back while the 3rd row is folded away, allowing for huge amounts of legroom and a limousine feel. When the third row is in their usual position, their storage space in the rear floor becomes a deep and usable luggage area.

Standard and optional features include:

ABS brakes Front and side airbags
Brake Assist Electronic Braking Distribution
Traction control Stability control
Anti theft system Dual zone climate control
Rear climate controls Dual sunroofs
Dual power sliding doors Power tailgate
Leather seats Front, side and rear cameras
