I think that they are talking about 車検 (shaken), so it's the examination process for your car. Generally speaking, it can be expensive to buy a car in Japan, but I think a Kei-car is OK. The main problem remain the parking (駐車場) fee each month. Well, nowadays, you can just rent a car with "Orix" or even do some long distance rideshare/carpool with "Noritomosan" as well.
