    Default Ben Auto Totota Hilux 2018 2.8 GD

    My son is looking for a Toyota Hilux and see this 2018 Toyota Hilux Double Cab 2.8GD 6 Raider A/T 4x4 (26000km) for R230.000. It is advertised at Ben Auto in commissionerstreet JHB. www.automart.co.za and a 2016 Toyota Hilux 2.8GD 4x2 (170000km) also at Ben Auto JHB. Is this a good dealership to buy from, it look to good to be true for me ?. Any advice pls.

    At that price I would buy 10.

    Each one would have a unicorn included in the deal and a yeti in the load bay.

    The address alone should give you the idea of how real this...

    You can't even get a D4D for that price... Please caution your son to be realistic....

    Look at all their photos taken on Automart, all over next to road kerbings and no dealership shop in sight.
    From experience, be very careful for any adverts stipulating "JHB City Centre". And, most of the time you will meet shady characters.

    We recently purchased a 2018 2.8 gd6 DC 4x4 with 60 000km on the clock for R499 000...so at the price you quoted it is either a write-off that was fixed OR it is a scam...too good to be true

    I did the car buying exercise twice for the kids in the last 2 years. I found that most (not all) of the dealers in the JHB inner city as well as Kempton selling accident damaged vehicles. They get grumpy and rude when pointing it out and obviously denies this. On both occasions I ended up going through reputable dealers and found excellent vehicles. Will be shopping again very soon for 18 Year old but not going to waste time in certain areas or social media.
