Buying a Nissan Fuga in a Ugandan car bond

Buying a Nissan Fuga 2008, for example from a Ugandan Car bond like Yuasa, or Beforward Uganda, it is most likely to cost you between 38 to 43 million Uganda shillings for a recent year of manufacture and latest model. For those that have been used in Uganda or locally used within Uganda for some time can cost around 15 to 22 million Ugandan shillings.

Importing a used Nissan Fuga from Japan

What about if you opt to import one from abroad specifically japan? Well, you will likely pay averagely about $ 1,500 – 3,500 depending on condition of the car, model and the car dealer you may prefer to use. However the quoted price typically does not include Freight to Mombasa port and transportation from Mombasa port to Uganda. Additionally it excludes taxes charged by the Uganda Revenue Authority which include Import Duty, Value added (VAT), Withholding Tax, Environmental Levy, Infrastructure Levy, and Registration Fees. For example a Nissan Fuga 2008 that costs $3,450 in japan will have a total Cost Insurance and Freight (CIF) cost of $ 5,902 to Kampala in Uganda. So if you are to buy this very sedan, you will have to pay an additional $3,454 worth of taxes to URA to have the vehicle fully operational on Ugandan roads.

Briefly about the interior of a Nissan Fuga

This is where paying a little more than you would for a 250 or 350GT Fuga really makes a statement. The Full leather interior is always a nice start and even used models maintain the nice leather smell.

Comes with all the bells and whistles you need out of a luxury sedan like navigation, backing monitors and cruise control, as well as extra’s that you don’t, but are nice to have anyway such as the passenger side curb camera and all the little control buttons on the steering wheels.

One feature I really liked was the automatic seat setting when you get in and get out. When you turn the car on, it slides you into position and presents you with the control and when you arrive at your destination, it slides you back and gets the steering wheel out of the way, giving you a lot of space to disembark.

My favorite feature is still the front passenger’s recliner style footrest. Not only is it awesomely comfortable, but it is a testament to the space available in the cabin of the Fuga. Even reclined with the footrest up, the backseats have a tone of room. The tallest of my friends had no complaints about sitting behind the lounging front seat passenger.

In general

A deal like this on a luxury sedan is hard to come by and the Fuga is arguably the cheapest on the market and for this reason, I would drive this car. This is overwhelmingly backed up by the fact that you just get full leather, great seats, a V8/V6 engine and a nice all round style. You just get so much for your money.
