I just wanted to post my experience of buying my new car (JDM STI Forester 2004 White) from Japan Car Direct. I have been looking for a good STI Forester for some months and had viewed many cars that had been in the UK for some years, some with associated rust issues forming. I was a little unsure about buying a JDM import as heard many stories of cars being damaged repaired cars. I contacted Nathan at japan car direct after seeing his advert for the STI Forester.
I made an appointment to view and was totally impressed with the condition of the car. The underneath was totally rust free and the whole car was in exceptional condition for a 80k miles car. More importantly after spending some time with Nathan and discussing his set up, I felt very happy and comfortable with his sincerity and openness . His relative owns Japan Car Direct and is based in Japan enabling him to view all the cars going through auction and has professional people on site to do an additional inspection to double check the condition and ensure best choice available. There was no pressure at all and after spending probably 2 hours looking at the car and driving it, I said I would sleep on it. This was no problem and I was left to my thoughts. I decided to go down again to view it and check everything over again. Again no pressure on time and after driving it again and checking all the documents including the auction papers from Japan I decided to buy it. I would without reservation recommend speaking with Nathan if you are thinking of buying a JDM import nathan@japancardirect. com.
