Looking to buy a used car on a budget? Do it the Weelee way

Buy a sporty Fiat 500 at Weelee for under R2 000 per month

Rising basic living costs mean that all South Africans are looking for ways to keep expenses in check as we figure out a reliable means of transport. With a weekly shop at Woolworths for a family of 5 sometimes exceeding R3 000, the accumulation of takeaway coffees bounding over the R2k per month mark and a steadily increasing repo rate, it’s a wonder how you’ve got any money left at month end.

How will you afford to buy a quality used car with installments under R2 000 per month? Have you got a second-hand vehicle budget of R150 000, but struggling to find a ride to meet your needs? With so many vehicles to choose from at affordable prices, there’s reason for you to ditch the Uber (or your current fuel-sapping ride) and head on over to Weelee to check out our range of reliable vehicles available at wholesale prices.

Whether you’ve shifted around priorities and can only scrape together R2k to spend on monthly car installments or have a marginal monthly budget of R5 000 for a quality family ride, Weelee can point you in the right direction when looking to buy a used car that will keep you in the green.

Let’s unpack some of the stylish rides you can get on a tight budget at Weelee: (Installments are calculated based on a 10% deposit paid off over 72 months with an interest rate of 12.75%)

Car installments under R2 000 per month

Fancy driving a Chevrolet Aveo, Fiat 500, Kia Picanto, Nissan Micra, Ford Figo, Ford Fiesta or BMW 325i? These are all within your reach at installments below R2 000 per month at a Weelee showroom near you.

That’s less than the cost of your bill for one month’s hair highlights, waxing and nails.
