Japanese used cars auctions grades

Japanese used cars auction houses use simplified vehicle condition grading system. The grades (car ratings) help auction participants to understand overall condition of a car to make their desicion to bid or not to bid. Different auction houses may use their own grading principles that is why we recommend to use auction grade only as an approximate indicator of car condition. If you participate in auctions using our used cars auctions system our managers will help you and may explain you about certain cars.
