    Default Buyers advice - years + mileage

    Just wanted to get some opinions here...

    buyer is looking at 2 clean, used cars from a franchised dealer.
    Both have same mileage (120,000km), same specs, both have full service history with dealer.
    One is a 2007, one is 2012. Price difference is about R50k more for the more recent one.

    I understand that age alone has a deteriorating effect on a car (seals, hoses, radiator, a/c) etc. Hence the price difference for same miles. Is 50k justified? Which would you pick?

    I would assume they are the same shape, just different model years? To me it depends on the actual prices as well as your budget? If it was R100k and R150k, I'd probably go for the cheaper one. If it was R550k and R600k, I'd probably go for the later year model.
