Auto Mart Cheap Car Listings

What cars are in the Auto Mart Cheap Cars section?

The Auto Mart Cheap Cars section is filled with over thirty thousand cars. These cars are categorised on the site and are either labelled “Low-Priced Item” or “Voetstoots Item”.

“Voetstoots” refers to “sold as is” and is explained in the legal clause below. Our cheap cars are vehicles that are priced below the average market price, which we track across our platform.

"Cheap Cars" refers to cars across all the price brackets. So you might find a R750 000 car for sale in our cheap cars section, but that’s because its listing price is cheaper than the average selling price of cars that are similar to it in its vehicle segment.

The voetstoots clause is a provision in the agreement which stipulates that the purchaser buys the “property” from the seller as it stands and thereby indemnifying the seller against claims for damages in respect of any defects on the item, whether patent or latent. -

How to use the Cheap Cars search tool

The Auto Mart Cheap Cars search journey is the same as the user journey on our main listings pages. All our cheap cars can be initially filtered by make, model, price, and region. Once a user has performed an initial search, a secondary layer of filtering is offered for users who are looking for something more specific.
