“And how old do you think I am, Darling?”

Very often when a customer comes to us looking for a used Japanese Kei Truck his approach starts with “clean.” It’s not only “low mileage,” or “cheap,” or “good condition;” although these are important to all buyers of secondhand vehicles from Japan. But, with Kei Trucks, it’s “clean” that everyone is hunting for first.

“Can you Japan Car Direct guys get me a clean used Sambar 4WD?” is the sort of enquiry we get, and it’s the sort of enquiry that this little KS4 Sambar Truck fully satisfies.

She is Clean. Look at the photos here and that’s the first thing you’ll think: “She’s clean.” The second thing you’ll think, as I did, is: “I want this Kei Truck!” (Yes, I’m a part time mind reader.)

And this sweety here well satisfies the other important factors for a good used car, too, like “low mileage,” exacatacaly 63,593.6 kilometers (39,515.2 miles) on her. And I’ll read your mind again and guess that you’re thinking: “That’s low mileage, Dude!” (I’m good at it, aren’t I?)

As for “good condition,” check out the photos and the inspection report that show every little scratch and I’ll mind read you one more time and say that you are thinking: “Those little scratches are nothing, Mate.”

My thoughts exactly.

So with a pretty little used mini truck in this condition, how old would you guess she is? Well, you know, of course, because I put the date at the top of the “Vehicle Overview” data, but, seriously, would you think, just by looking at the vehicle, that this is a 25 year old Kei Truck, a 1990 Sambar? At first glance I myself would certainly think that the truck is a good deal younger than that, based on exterior and interior examination and mileage.

A Winner Kei Truck from the Auctions

Did this lovely used Sambar come to us from a snooty dealer who deals only in “quality vehicles for quality people, no riff raff, please” and overcharges for everything on his lot? Not at all! This machine is straight from a Japanese used car auction (and straight to the USA after that).
Did this high capability 4WD work mate / hunt mate cost a bomb? Nope. The final winning bid price was very reasonable, indeed. (I can’t disclose the actual figure because that’s our customer’s proprietary information and if I leak it the sales manager will pull my ears off; but I do say it was a good score. Money well spent, for sure.)

And winning good Japanese used cars at auction, and from the dealers, too (in fact they are rarely “snooty” and we have some very good partnerships with them), is not a rare occurrence, it’s a key element of our business and a big pull leading more and more winners to choose to do a direct self import from Japan, rather than go down to the local used car dealer.

We can’t post, here on our site, every nice clean Kei vehicle that we sell, but let me show you some other “winnercars” for “winnermen” that it has been our pleasure to source and ship.

This Sambar Kei Truck here is a 1991, a dump body version, and is another real little treasure found at the auctions.

The super clean used Honda Acty Van that you’ll find here also came from the auction and he’s really spotless. He’s what we call an “aisha,” a loved car, in Japanese, a well-loved and well-treated vehicle.

This 4WD Suzuki Carry here is a 1995, has had a rather easy life, and had only done 28,340kms (17,600 miles) by the time he came to us.

And (one more, one more, because it’s one of my favourite Japanese Kei vehicles and I had one for years) this Subaru Sambar Diaz van here has rather more miles on him (128,331kms / 79,741 miles) than these vehicles that I’ve been showing you here just now, but he’s another example of the kind of “aisha” that comes up both at the dealers and the used car auctions and that, when it finds a new home with you, will stick with you for many happy, fun, and service-filled years.

I’ve praised the Sambar Kei Trucks on our Japan Car Direct blog here, and the Sambar vans (one of which I had for dog’s ages and really enjoyed) here, so I won’t say anything more about them at the moment; and if you’re already looking seriously at importing a clean used Sambar Kei Truck from Japan, then you already know how great they are and don’t need to hear it from me.

I’ll just leave you to again look at, and admire, the photos of our clean little gal here.

Contact us. We can introduce you to her twin sister.

  • 5 star review  I can't recommend JCD enough. Mathew was a fantastic person to work with. As a newbie to the Japanese auctions, I was quite naïve and had far too many questions. Mathew was kind, knowledgeable, and patient through the entire process. My Minicab arrived last week and I am quite pleased. I would not hesitate to work with Japan Car Direct again in the future. Thank you Mathew!! Jay A.

    5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting for fairness at auto auctions here in the USA - we own a small dealership. Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit, but he worked through my caution and I’m now very happy to purchase through him. Call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

    5 star review  I always wanted a Land Cruiser ! Mathew helped me find 2 beautiful trucks from the Japanese auction. Had them delivered to Freeport, TX last week. He was amazing to work with. Fast response time on bids, super easy to work with, he has a lot of experience and answered all questions promptly. Will be working with JCD more in the future to purchase more vehicles !

    5 star review  Very pleased with my experience with JCD. Mat helped me with my purchase of a Honda Beat and its shipping to the port of Baltimore. Everything was seamless and I would (and already have) recommended this company to several friends.

    5 star review  I just picked up my dream campervan from port and have to say that Japan car direct was with me the entire way. I felt so supported all my questions were answered and I could not imagine doing something like this without them. I highly recommend the whole team, trust them and would encourage anyone to use there services.

    5 star review  I just wanna thank Matthew and the whole team at Japan Car Direct, they always went above and beyond in making sure their clients are always happy and informed about the vehicles they are purchasing. I am still in the buying process but so far 5/5 definitely. I’ll keep everyone posted when I do find a car!

    5 star review  Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.

  • 5 star review  Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.

    5 star review  Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.

    5 star review  Yoshi and team were patient in helping me find the right car (green 2016 Prius 4WD) and get me through the process. Flawless service, prompt response to communications, on delivery the car was better than expected, very close to new looking. Their recommended partners for shipping and entry into NZ were on the ball too. Highly recommended! Pro tip: don't mess around; decide exactly what you want, then bid to win.
