Looking for a used car in South Africa? Here are a few places that you can check out to get the best deal possible:

  • Online Forums And E-Commerce Websites

You can buy a used car directly from a seller on e-commerce websites and online forums. The benefit of this is that you can negotiate the price with the seller, but the drawback is that you may not be getting a good deal as the seller would be inclined to hide faults on the car. Another drawback is that a private seller won’t be able to give you vehicle finance, so this is something you will have to negotiate with a bank yourself.

  • Used Car Dealerships

Used car dealerships offer a wide variety of cars and they can usually arrange vehicle finance with the banks for you. The drawback of this is that you will have to pay the high-interest rates that go hand-in-hand with car loans from banks. If you have a poor credit history, then a bank may decline your loan application.

  • Rent-To-Buy Car Finance Companies
