Toyota Sienta

Toyota Sienta

Before you buy a Toyota Sienta in Uganda

The Toyota Sienta minivan has a perfect balance between space and power. It comfortably seats 7 passengers with an option to adjust the seats in the 2nd row for easier entrance and exit in the vehicle. This is also known as the "walk-in mode." The 1500cc engine grants enough to power both in the highway and in the city streets even if the car is full. It's Front Wheel (FF) and V-flex full-time Four Wheel Drive layout significantly helps you go through smooth corners with overall stability. This minivan features a non-stage combination of CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) (FF) Front Wheel, Front Engine/4-speed AT (4WD) Four Wheel Drive which aids in fuel economy.

Buying a Toyota Sienta in a Ugandan car bond

Importing a used Toyota Sienta from Japan

If you’re to buy a Used Toyota Sienta from Japan you may pay between $ 800 – 1,200 depending on the condition of the car, model and the car dealer you 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. These costs may end up increasing your final cost of Toyota Sienta to around $ 7,000 or even more for later models

Common Problems Owners of Toyota Sienta face while in Uganda

Just like many cars in Uganda, shock absorbers and bushes is another problem that keeps tormenting this subcompact minivan.

The good side however, is that spare parts for this car are readily available and affordable.

You can these spare parts easily from kiseka market, Ndeeba and Bwaise areas. My observation is that most car parts from these markets are second hand or “used”. So, if you prefer brand new spare parts for your car, then you have to order those parts from abroad.

Reasons as to why Ugandans buy the Toyota Sienta

The car is equipped with only a 4-cylinder in-line engine of 1.5 liters. This engine makes the Sienta so user friendly in terms of fuel cost not to mention its capability to carry up to seven persons raises its rating even much higher.
