    If I were the OP I'd wait for 3-4 months when there are loads of 2nd hand, low-mileage cars on the market,but be carefull, interest rates will go up and up and up..... (long term).

    My poor man's Toyota is a 2012 Jeep Cherokee 3.7L A/T

    Heavy on fuel. Expensive on parts and labour.
    But I got it used at a price I could afford.

    Besides, I have to pay cash for them because at my age,
    regardless of an unblemished credit record I am unlikely
    to get a purchase financed.

    New one. regardless of make tend to be too expensive
    and some cost as much or more than my three bedroom
    two bathroom two carport apartment.

    Ok Fatbike, I will bite onto this thread and answer your question.

    You have not stated your pupose for 4x4 so it is difficult to advise what to look at SUV or bakkie? Is it used for work or pleasure, overlanding or rock climbing, towing, camping with roof top tent, hauling some heavy loads, etc?....all the aforementioned makes a difference.

    For R5500 per month you are roughly looking at R250000. For R250000 you are spoiled for choice. You will typically be looking at a 4x4 vehicle in the 5 year old range and it will have 100k to 150k km on it. More than 150k km and you should wait a bit for something else while less than 100k km is a good buy.

    Good vehicle brands that have proven to run between 5 years and 10 years (your bracket of usage) without much major failures with normal maintenance are Mistsu (pajero and triton), Toyota (all of them 4x4s), VW Amarok, Ford Ranger and Everest 2.2 (not 3.2).

    I also like to buy in the 5 year range. In my mind the value for money vs risk is the best. Just understand that a vehicle is a mechanical thing and it can fail. It is a bit luck of the draw. If you stick to my limited list above your chances should be rather better than worse.

    Good luck. Hope this helps.
