Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Chevrolet Alero in Nigeria
Only one generation produced, hence not many units found their way to Nigeria, but the few which did have made their presence known. Most of the Chevrolet Alero found in the Nigerian Automobile market would be Nigerian used, and it would be quite hard to import a foreign used one into the country, because of its final year of production.
The Best Chevrolet Alero year to Buy
For the Chevrolet Alero we would recommend the last production year which was in 2004. Although all the years of production looked quite similar, this year of production proved to be the best because the people at Chevrolet wanted to give their customers an ultimate going away present. It was fitted with the latest and finest accessories in its time, and safety was also not faltered with. There are still older versions like the 2000 Chevrolet Alero and 1999 Chevrolet Alero that are popular in the automobile market.
