I can’t recommend Scott at Japan Car Direct enough.

I had always wanted to import a car from Japan for many years but was a little worried about the whole process. With the help of Scott (who basically does everything for you) I have imported my first car without any problems and I am very happy. I was on a very tight budget for my first import and the car is in excellent condition inside and out thanks to Scott checking the details and having an inspection done, this is very informative and ensures you know exactly what you are buying which can be the most worrying part. From start to finish Scott kept in contact, updating me at every point and ensured I got the exact car that I was looking for, You couldn’t ask for more and I look forward to working with JCD again.

Thanks again



Hi Scott,

Everything went great with the car, short of a couple things that should be replaced the car is in excellent condition. Thank you again for all your help during the process! I will definitely recommend your services and hopefully be contacting you in the future regarding more cars! Thanks again.

Well my friends, thanks to you two wonderful gents I now have a fantastic ride! (it definitely draws some fun looks!) I must say, when you said pocket rocket, you were right! This thing wants to move! I keep being surprised at just how much pull it puts out for such a tiny package! The sound of the engine is a beautiful purr, which such a vibrant interior! And the steering is so very responsive, it really is like driving a go kart! This truly is a driver’s car. I attached some photos, an man am I in love with this car. It is way more fun than I anticipated! There’s only a few things through I think need to be taken care of : 1- the speed limit warning needs to go, ha. Speed limits in America are a lot higher than 85kph! Any hints on where to find the buzzer? 2- tires, the tread is fine, but I think they’re a bit old and probably should be replaced. I’ve found one site that sells them online, but I was curious if you were more in tune with where I should be looking? 3- spare parts, is there a good website / method of getting spare parts (used or new) even if it’s in Japanese it’s a great head start.

Once again, thanks for all the help, and this is an awesome one of a kind car!

Dear Scott,

Hope you are doing well. Just to inform that I received the Toyota RAUM in good condition…..no going to the garage to fix minor dents as other people here do! I like it and enjoy driving it! I appreciate the excellent service I received from you and Mel right from choosing the car at the auction, shipping and delivery to Nairobi. It was a seamless process. Now just waiting to get my logbook.

I have the confidence to recommend friends to japan car direct.
Thanks so much,

Denis, Nairobi, Kenya


We received our car yesterday and it is a BEAUTY. Our car is in a lot better condition than we thought and it even has a new car smell. Thank you again for your assistance and we will definitely recommend Japan Car Direct to our friends.
Kind Regards,
