Search Gumtree second hand cars in the Cape Town, Gauteng, Pretoria, Durban and the Johannesburg areas if you are looking for good second hand vehicles. There are many people that want to sell their cars and the Gumtree classified ads are what they use to do so. The other thing is that you have to be aware when browsing through all the used cars on this website. There are people that are involved in scams. They will sell you a great looking vehicle and once you have paid for the vehicle and drive off, a few days later you find that there is so much wrong it and then decide to return to the original owner. When you get there, the owner is gone.
These are the types of scams that you have to be careful of when searching Gumtree second hand cars when living in the Johannesburg, Cape Town, Gauteng, Durban and Pretoria areas. Unfortunately, this is something that happens everywhere. When you arrange a meeting with the owner of the vehicle have a mechanic or a friend that knows cars tag along. Ask the owner if you could drive the car around for a bit after and allow your mechanic to do the driving. He will know how the gears should feel when changing them and he will know how the clutch, break and accelerator should feel.
When you arrange a meeting with the owner of a vehicle using this classified ads website, you should also arrange a meeting with the owner to view the car when it is raining. It might sound weird for some, but when you take the car out for a test drive with your mechanic, you will be able to tell immediately if this is going to be worth your while when water starts dripping in. Keep these things in mind when searching for a vehicle.
