The average price of key brands such as Toyota and Ford is dropping, says motoring journalist Ciro de Siena.

Used cars – it’s a buyers’ market, says motoring journalist Ciro de Siena.

If you’re looking to buy – and you have the money, now is the time.

The average price of a used Ford Ranger – South Africa’s most popular pre-owned vehicle – has fallen by R10 263 (with mileage less than 90 000 kilometres) between March and May, according to Sunday Times.

In May, a Toyota Corolla with about 90 000 kilometres on the clock cost you, on average, R44 184 less than in March.

Pippa Hudson interviewed De Siena.
