Car owner feedback


2009 Mahindra 2009

I bought my Mahindra Bolero DC turbo NEF engin 4 years ago as a 2009 model. I had nothing but severe heartache with this vehicle. It smokes terribly! The vehicle has been to specialists 5 times and no one can sort out the problem.

2013 TATA SuperAce

Tata does not know or explain where the radiator fan switch is located l tried googling l tried Tata parts to avail why does no one in ZA know where is it located shame

2009 Citroen C5

As a first time Citroen owner I was expecting some issues but I had always wanted to try their hydraulic suspension. It is one of the smartest looking wagons around and it still turns heads. Lots of useful features and I've come to really appreciate the auto park brake and powered tailgate - very handy when your hands are full with groceries.

2012 Chevrolet Sonic 1.3 diesel

Great value for money. Low fuel consumption. Open road 5 l/100km and city max 7.5 l/100km. Full house including blue tooth and speed control.
