Thread: Drive a New car from R799 a month

  1. #1

    Default Drive a New car from R799 a month

    Hi guys,

    I saw this billboard over the weekend just after Allendale off-ramp towards PTA, as the title says "drive a new car from R799 a month", no deposit and no residual.
    So what is the catch here, i would really like to know??

    If it's a Chana, Chery or Tata then there's probably no catch.

    I sms'ed one of those guys to find out what's the deal, just out of curiosity. It was a Chery QQ I think, and the R799 is for the first 12 months. For the remaining 60 (or 48?) months it's like R1899 p/m or something. FAIL.

    Thought as much, i wonder if the car will even last for the first 12 months. But shouldn't the advert state that its for the first 12 months???

    Cherry is actually reliable. Might even be my next little car for going to the shop. My wife has a couple of clients that put on 3-4K a month on the car and no problems. Most of the part are compatible with Daewoo's (actually some panel beaters will use the Cherry doors on Daewoos).

    Then again, 12yrs back everyone was going on how bad Hyundai was, yet you still alot of '97 models in excellent condition.
    Character is how you treat those that can do nothing for you.

    some of these offers are legit ! they lower your installment by advertising on your rear windshield. so thats takes off R400 to R600 of your monthly bill. there's a dealer in PTA that does that with tata's, cheris, atos etc

    dont do it!!! didnt you see the report on carte blanche about this?? Apparently the monthly payment subsidy just disappears after 2-3 months and you get stuck with a debit order for the full car payment coming off!!!

    About these people running this type of business, just make sure you read the fine-print before you sign any document. You pay the cheap installments because they wrap your car with whichever company wants to pay for advertising. After the contract period is up they take the car away from you.

    Just read it - and it's miff and siff.

    Read the contract before signing on the dotted line... caveat emptor.
