Motoring: Exploring the second-hand car market with Jacob Moshokoa

From old cars to new cars, EWN motoring correspondent Jacob Moshokoa advises listeners on how to get the best deal.

If you are feeling the economic pinch, Mosohokoa says the second hand market is massive in South Africa and worth exploring.

Our second hand car market has always been quite active. I mean we are paying over R16 for a litre of petrol now and a lot of people are probably moving away from the likes of their daily V8's or V6's to smaller 1.4 litre engine cars because they are thinking fuel efficiency now, not thinking status anymore.

Jacob Moshokoa, EWN motoring correspondent

People are always looking for a good deal when they are trying to get a car. Either they are upgrading or changing things up because it is a bit expensive to maintain a new or expensive car.
