Mercedes S-Class 1999-2005

For the price of a brand-new budget car you could in fact be driving in the lap of luxury. Older lux-mobiles have no value in the second-hand market because they are considered expensive to maintain. While partly true, a well-maintained one in good condition could serve you well and may not be much more expensive to run than a small new car. That is if you do your homework in terms of reputable service agents (not a dealer) and insurance – shop around!

Nissan X-Trail 2001-2007

Nissan X-Trail (1)

This SUV is extremely popular in the second-hand market because of their versatility as both a weekend warrior and spacious urban vehicle for the family. Various engine/drivetrain options were available and the interior offered many practical creature comforts, like washable upholstery. Who else ever offered that?

Citroën C3 2004-2010

Citroen C3 (3)

While the phenomenon has largely turned around, French cars in general and Citroën in particular proved unpopular amongst South Africans because of their expensive parts (and sometimes a long wait for replacements), high servicing and insurance costs, and poor resale value. However, low values make these attractive in the second-hand market. One thing to note though, is be sure to find an independent service agent who can work on it before you indulge.
