So you say to yourself: “I want to buy a good second hand car from Japan.”

We say: “Sure, you can do it.”

And then you say to yourself: “I want to import a second hand sports car from Japan, from the Japanese used car auctions, or from a reputable dealer.”

We say: “That’s not a problem. Talk to us.”

And now you say: “And I want the car to be lighter than a first series Lotus Elise. I want it to be reliable and practical. I want it to be economical. I want it to be fast and fun with excellent handling and no power steering. And I want all-wheel-drive…..And I don’t want to spend too much money.”

And we say: “Suzuki Alto Works.”

All of these needs, demands, and desires are met by the Suzuki Alto Works, like this very fine first generation unit that we recently scored for a customer and shipped to the US.

You are looking here at a car that weighs only 650kgs (no, this is not a misprint), has a small, highly tuned 12-valve, turbo-intercooled engine that pumps out lots of power and red lines at a stratospheric 9,500rpm (no again, this is not a misprint) and has AWD to put that power down to burn up the road; and does it all inexpensively without burning a hole in your pocket.

Do we say this car is dirt cheap? No, but it’s sure cheaper than a Lotus. We can’t tell you here what the customer paid for it as we keep final prices as proprietary information for our customers (both dealers and private buyers) to protect their privacy, but we can certainly say that it was a very good deal indeed.

People worldwide are waking up to the joy of pure driving fun that you can still enjoy when you have a Japanese Kei sports car like an Alto Works; and the dealer network in Japan has woken up, too, so that we are now able to find some very fine, well cared for, and even well restored, examples of the pure motoring concept of the small, light, simple, practical, affordable, and super delightful pocket rocket.

Maybe no one makes joyful cars like this anymore (at least not in the affordable price brackets; pace Lotus) but you don’t have to give in and drive a boring car. Just buy a Suzuki Alto Works (or any of the great Japanese Kei class sports cars) from Japan and you’ll be a happy sports car driver indeed.

    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  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 not to get taken at local auctions (I own a dealership and believe strongly in integrity). 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. Find me and 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 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.
