Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Lexus LS in Nigeria
The Lexus LS is available in various year models and states. A good number of the Lexus LS models in Nigeria are Tokunbo, which literally means “Coming from over the sea”. These Tokunbo vehicles are always preferred because they are being used in standard road conditions, available with some of the best specifications and are routinely maintained by the previous users. When these vehicles are registered and used here, they could also be sold off; hence the term “Nigerian Used” or “Registered” comes into play. These registered vehicles are sometimes not in the almost brand new” states the Tokunbo vehicles come in, and a few or a lot of repairs might need to be carried out on them. But one thing is for sure, the price is always right. This goes for the Lexus LS also, in various trim levels and years of manufacture.
