Most vehicles that are in repossession by the banks are in a good condition. Although some will not have had regular services and repairs. Due to a lack of funds from the previous driver.
For this reason it is wise if you are not an expert yourself to take a mechanic with you. Or somebody who knows exactly what things to look for and check when wanting to bid for and buy a second hand motor car.

Keep in mind that vehicles sold at Cape Town car auctions will not be available for you to test drive.
Because there are just too many makes and models and such a lot of people interested in buying. So it would be nothing but chaos to let customers test drive them.
However you can start the engine and check for any unusual noises, oil leaks and other potential problem areas.
Our advice is to not go for bidding on older models. But to try and look for the bargains which are less than about 6-10 months old.
Because even if these have been a little neglected, it should have no effect on the condition or performance.
