The cheap-cars section on Auto Mart was created for vehicles that are sold as-is (voetstoots), as well as vehicles that are sold for an amount lower than the average asking price of the vehicle. In this section, you’ll see that some of the vehicles will be marked as ‘Voetstoots Item’ while others will be marked as ‘Low-Priced Item’.
On Auto Mart, a voetstoots item refers to a vehicle sold to you as is. This means that the seller won’t take any responsibility for any defects or problems on or in the vehicle after the vehicle has been sold to you.
It is your responsibility as the buyer to ensure that the vehicle is in a decent condition and that you are happy with it before making a purchase. You can ask for a roadworthy certificate before buying.
You will still be able to search through all the other vehicles listed on Auto Mart in the normal-cars section. Simply click on ‘Not looking for Cheap Cars?’ or visit ‘New & Used Cars’ and start your search.
You can also still set up alerts quickly and easily by filling in your email address at the bottom of the page in the ‘Get Alerts’ section or you can visit the ‘Get Alerts’ page on the menu and set up your alerts there.
You also have fewer legal rights. You can sue for your losses if the vehicle is not as described, however, you might not be able to find the seller.

All advert data including images, descriptions, and pricing on Auto Mart is supplied by our advertising partners. All vehicles labelled "voetstoots" are sold as-is, including imperfections and damages in or on the vehicle at the date of purchase. Auto Mart, an affiliate of Junk Mail Publishing Pty Ltd, is not involved in the brokering of the deal between the advertiser and buyer, thus exempting itself from responsibility for any errors that may occur. It remains the sole responsibility of the advertiser.
