    Have a big webuycars here close to my house, but I've heard horror stories of people buying from them.

    It's a really difficult price range. My best bet would be to find someone trading a car, as a dealer will give them like 30k lower than what they'll sell the cars for. But that's difficult to find.
    I don't think there services are more than any other brands. Definitely not expensive to maintain if you look how long they last.

    For 100k you can get a lot nicer car than a Citi. Figo is a good call, but I would rather get the Fiesta that the Figo is based on. It is just a nicer car. Slightly older in years though.

    Apart from an old school F250, no used Ford will ever darken my driveway with oil again.

    I'd rather buy a Disco 3 TDV6 and take my chances.

    Could have bought my 2011 1.4 i20 and had a lot of change for that - but ja I sold it a month or so ago.

    It was very very very reliable, nothing went wrong with it, had all the bells and whistles (for the time) like AC PS EW CL disk brakes all round, adjustable steering (which is scarce on other brands in this market segment) cheap insurance and cheap to service.

    Dont discount the Koreans

    The Jazz is a winner but well known as such and in high demand. Suzuki also apparently great, though the jazz wins hands down if space and versatility is what you want.

    I have recently got a 2012 Honda Jazz CVT, great little car and apparently it's not difficult to get 6L 100km fuel economy, which for an auto is impressive.

    Prices for Hondas in general and the Jazz in particular are noticeably higher in CT, though for R100k you will get a nice one if you spend some time in the market.

    The 1.2, 1.3 and 1.5 iVtec engines the Jazz uses are bullet proof and are known to be ultra reliable, they use them in countless Honda vehicles so most common spares and even complete engines according to my research are cheap and widely available. Complete import engines are around R10k.

    2015 and on are the 3rd gen direct injection engines, from a long term maintenance perspective probably best to stick with the 2nd gen models but I haven't looked into the 3rd gen so they may be as reliable as the previous gen.

    I recall the Figos being surprisingly heavy on fuel.
    my folks had one around 2016 as a run around (and itís consumption was bad), and I was also using a lot of them then as rentals. My one colleague who also used lots of rentals used to say eish, those ones drink like a shark. Haha.

    Jazz is a good bet I reckon.

    A couple weeks back I got myself a picanto as a run around. In the 3000kms Iíve done so far, Iím getting 4.4l/100km. Not too shabby. They are small though, the boot is really small etc. but perfect for just me to run around in.

    You will not make a mistake with the Honda Jazz. My wife is driving her second Honda and love the car. In the 10 years that we have had the 2 vehicles (5 years each) we only spent money on tires besides normal servicing. Very reliable, very fuel efficient, amazing space.

    We are going to buy our third Jazz soon and expect to get R100k for our 2015 model with less than 100k on the clock.

    Lots of Brio's available, also Honda and should last. I would go for the Brio amaze, big boot
    For example: https://www.autotrader.co.za/cars-fo...ss-than-100000

    Or like the other guys said Suzuki Swift.

    Have worked with 2 guys that drove figos, petrol was heavy on them for such a small car, around 9-10L/100km if I remember correctly
