SA’s most af­ford­able car to pur­chase and main­tain

Eyethu Baywatch - - MOTORING • EZEZIMOTO - Val van der Walt

AC­CORD­ING to the Kin­sey re­port, an in­dus­try yard­stick that looks at fac­tors such as af­ford­abil­ity and cost of own­er­ship, the Dat­sun GO is SA’s most af­ford­able car.

The Kin­sey Re­port not only fo­cuses on the price of car but also on the parts, which ul­ti­mately af­fects your in­sur­ance pre­mi­ums and re­pair costs.

The re­port high­lights the true cost of own­ing a ve­hi­cle and has be­come the bench­mark in­de­pen­dent parts pric­ing sur­vey in the SA motoring in­dus­try.

In the City Cars cat­e­gory – en­try-level cars for first­time buy­ers, the GO has been named the best over­all in the ser­vice, re­pair and crash parts sec­tions re­spec­tively.

‘With 2017 re­sults of the Kin­sey re­port, it is fur­ther ev­i­dence of the Dat­sun GO’s at­trac­tive pric­ing struc­ture in SA, which en­sures that buy­ers can still main­tain their ve­hi­cles at af­ford­able prices, even in these tough eco­nomic con­di­tions’, said Dar­rell Rowe, Sales Man­ager for Dat­sun and Nis­san at Im­pe­rial Nis­san Zu­l­u­land, of the GO’s ma­jor achieve­ment.

The af­ford­abil­ity of parts, in con­junc­tion with classlead­ing fuel con­sump­tion, makes the to­tal cost of own­er­ship (TCO) one of the best.

Not only is the pur­chase price of the the GO very low - R128 900 - but the buyer also gets one year in­sur­ance and a new smart­phone.

With more and more man­u­fac­tur­ers wad­ing into the wa­ters of af­ford­able car own­er­ship, and SA’s ail­ing public trans­port sys­tem, cars like the GO give up­wardly mo­bile cit­i­zens the op­por­tu­nity to be­come mo­bile for at an af­ford­able price.

Zu­l­u­lan­ders look­ing for an af­ford­able car backed by a coun­try-wide dealer net­work can visit Im­pe­rial Nis­san in Em­pan­geni.
