Common misconceptions about used cars in South Africa

South Africa has a very vibrant used car industry. Millions of active consumers invest in used cars in South Africa so that they can afford owning their own vehicles. However, like elsewhere in the world, our used car industry also suffers from many misconceptions. These misconceptions are born out of a lack of understanding of the industry and from being carried over from generation to generation rather than being rooted in fact.

The truth is that millions of credit active consumers wouldn’t be able to afford their own vehicle if it wasn’t for used cars in South Africa. Also, people wouldn’t be able to get value for their second hand vehicles if there wasn’t a market for these vehicles. It is because of this that the used car industry is such a vital global industry.

Here are a few of the most common misconceptions regarding the used cars industry in South Africa:

·        All used cars have something wrong with them: This is so far from the truth that it is hard to imagine many people believe this misconception. Not all used cars have been driven by barely legal teenagers who enjoy pushing the car to its limits. Additionally, when you purchase a second-hand car, it has to pass a roadworthy test where all the important elements of the vehicle, including the braking and clutch system, are checked.
·        All used cars don’t have original manufacturer warranty any longer: This is also not necessarily the case. In certain instances a vehicle owner can sell the car with some of the original manufacturer warranty still in place.

These are only a few of the misconceptions that still plague the used car industry - however, there are the companies that always go the extra mile to ensure their customers receive the very best deal and service possible.
