Cars for sale in Cape Town and the surrounding suburbs include new and pre-owned Toyota’s, BMW’s, Merc’s, classic and vintage second hand vehicles offering the buyer a wide choice at varied prices. A buyer has many options depending on his or her needs. Repossession auctions are held at venues on a regular basis and sell different types of vehicles including bakkies, motorcycles, vans and trailers that have been repossessed by ABSA, Nedbank, Standard Bank and FNB as well as other major credit providers. The general public and dealers alike attend bank repo auctions in the Cape and bid on models in an effort to get a bargain.
Those looking for decent pre-owned cars for sale in Cape Town will do well to take a drive out of the city via a road called Voortrekker Road. This route runs through suburbs such as Goodwood, Parow and Belville and is lined with used car dealers on both sides of the street. Toyota, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Renault, VW, Nissan, everywhere you look in this street you will find the makes and models of popular motor vehicles being sold to South Africans at various prices. Some of these motor dealers are even open 7 days a week although we would advise taking a drive on a Sunday initially when most dealers are closed so you can have a good look at your leisure without being hassled by a commission hungry salesman!
No matter where you choose to buy a vehicle in the Cape area it is wise to take someone with you who knows a little about mechanics if you are not too clued up yourself. Buying second hand models is a lot different to purchasing a new model as you are not always exactly sure of the history or why the previous owner decided to sell. Bank reposessed automobiles also need a really good looking over before the auction begins and you decide to bid on a particular item as many of these have been taken due to the previous driver being in financial trouble. This often means that servicing and repairs have been neglected. Use your common sense, do not rush into a decision as there are many places with cars for sale in Cape Town and the surrounding suburbs.
