Buying a car, even a used one, is a big deal. So our team came up with these 5 essential tips for buying a new car in Windhoek during 2020.

1. Sort out your finances

The first thing to do is work out your budget and stick to it. If necessary, find out the best way to finance your car, whether it's a personal loan, vehicle finance or straightforward cash. Work out how much you can put down in deposit, and then calculate the monthly payments that you can afford.

2. Do your research
