Ask the right questions and make sure the car has been properly maintained – and don’t fall in love until your sure it’s a practical fit! That’s what we learned when we went behind the scenes at Eastvall Motors.

This week we spoke to Naylor Kryger. Dealer Principal from Eastvaal Motors, Secunda to get his 5 top tips for anyone looking to buy a used car.

Naylor gave us some really great insight and tips – thank you for the interview Naylor!
