“I have purchased cars from Japan through three different brokers. Scott at Japan Car Direct provided the best experience by far. His commitment to customer service, his drive to get the best deal, his willingness to go the extra mile, mean I will be buying my next car through Scott too.”

To Whom it May Concern,

I have been working with JCD since March 2012, shortly after the Myanmar Vehicle market opened up to imports.
During this one and a half years I have imported over 120 vehicles from JCD. The quality has almost always been as good or for the most part better than expected! There have of course been some problems along the way, but Scott and his staff always go out of their way to solve them in an efficient and timely manner. I have recommended JCD’s service to some of my friends and they are also very happy with the results.

Thank You JCD

Best Regards,

John Singh Citizen of Myanmar

“Scott Bower and Japan Car Direct (JCD)… two thumbs up, and I mean waaay up!

When researching, sending a deposit, ‘shopping’ the auctions, selecting the vehicle and finally placing what you hope is a winning low-ball bid – it is extremely important to trust the company you are dealing with. I talked to several companies before finally deciding to proceed with JCD – and that was all before learning that Scott was originally from Edmonton. What helps us trust is communication. JCD is big enough to have all the experience you’d hope a provider of this kind of service would have, but also small enough to give you the kind of constant communication that inspires enough confidence to send many thousands of dollars overseas… somewhat blind. Scott answered all my questions (many many questions, lol) and helped me with all the research into the ever-changing JDM markets. Shop with confidence here… cannot say enough good things about the JCD experience.”

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.
