The Best Second Hand Cars to Buy in South Africa

on

Volkswagen and Mercedes were the big winners in the first Gumtree Pre-Owned Car Awards announced on Thursday (9 November 2017).

The Awards seek to recognize and promote the best pre-owned vehicles on the market across ten categories, based on criteria a buyer might use when evaluating a pre-owned car, as well as sales figures provided by TransUnion.

With the pre-owned market being double that of new vehicles in South Africa, Gumtree’s Head of Automotive Jeff Osborne says these inaugural awards are “a long-overdue recognition of brands which best hold their value, deliver reliable performance and carry reasonable maintenance costs”.

The expert panel of judges assessed 2015 models in ten different categories and there was also a People’s Choice winner, voted by Gumtree users, in each.

Volkswagen won three judges’ awards and Mercedes-Benz took out two but there were also notable wins for Toyota Rav-4, Ford Ranger, Kia Picanto, Mazda CX3 and the BMW M4.

Osborne says the ten different categories were developed carefully to give pre-owned buyers some real guidance in the specific price and vehicle types that met their budgets. “The judges have done a fantastic and thorough job and we believe these awards can become an important annual landmark for the pre-owned market in South Africa.”

    當蛋白線埋入皮膚後,皮下組織會將蛋白線視為異物,啟動異物反應,因此刺激膠原蛋白生長,且可促進新陳代謝,更新老化肌膚,所以客戶在術後也會發覺膚質變得較透亮白皙。膠原蛋白提拉線像一個“磁力線”一樣,將埋入處附近的肌肉和脂肪固定在原處,不會往下墜,其後會吸引皮下組織往蛋白線集中部位移動,就會逐漸產生提拉的緊實效果。也被用於填充美容的微整形,蛋白線材就好比蓋房子的鋼骨支架,先埋入皮膚當作基底結構,然後再注入好比水泥的玻尿酸或自體脂肪,因為有吸附力不易擴散,就可穩定固定住填充物,讓立體支撐力效果更好。
