South Africans love second-hand cars over expensive new vehicles

Buying a new car in South Africa can be expensive, especially considering the weakness of the rand against the currencies of countries which many vehicles are imported from.

For this reason, pre-owned cars are a major trade in South Africa – with many drivers choosing to buy used cars over new vehicles due to cost savings.

Errrr not really. It is people who make more than you. Government jobs do not pay much hey... Private companies pay almost double what gov pays.
Maybe not their formal salaries but these guys make a fortune on graft.. So the answer is tenderpreneurs. Tenderpreneurs buy all the new cars in South Africa..

The way the heading read we can then also conclude.

South Africans love rice, pap en lentils over unaffordable basic necessities.
