Avo Auto: Finding you dealerships you can trust

Buying a car, whether it’s new or used, is always exciting. But you want the peace of mind of knowing that you’re dealing with a reputable car dealership. You don’t want to buy a skorokoro that will give you trouble later – or worse, to hand over your hard-earned money to a scammer who disappears with it, leaving you with no cash and no car.

Cars are a costly investment, so you need to be able to trust the seller. When you shop around for a car, you need to know that you’re working with a reputable dealership who will patiently explain all the details of the deal. With so many out there, how do you know which you can trust?

It’s simple – just use Avo Auto.


Trustworthy dealerships made easy

Avo Auto is a virtual showroom that features cars from dealerships, whether franchised or independent, that have been approved by MFC, a division of Nedbank after a thorough screening and vetting process. Only then will car sellers be accepted on the Avo Auto platform as approved dealers.

You can be sure that any car you buy through Avo Auto is both a good deal and safe to drive. ‘All our dealers have to go through a strict bank vetting process to ensure that they comply to myriad compliance matters before they are approved by MFC to offer their finance products to our clients,’ says Jonathan Klopper, Nedbank Avo Auto Senior Product Manager.

With so many approved dealerships, you’ll always be able to browse an impressive range of cars for sale on Avo Auto – including sedans, SUVs, sports cars, double cabs, bakkies and more. With all these options, you’re sure to find the right car to match your needs and your budget. And your choices will only expand, as the number of approved dealerships licensed on Avo Auto keeps growing. ‘Currently, there are 530 dealerships, but we are adding approximately 60 new dealerships every month,’ Klopper says.

Uncover a reliable car-buying experience

To see the gallery of cars on sale at various dealerships, simply log on to the new and used cars for sale in South Africa listings and view all the cars on the platform. You can browse the vehicles on offer using filters for make or model, body type, price, year, mileage and colour.


When you find your perfect match, you can apply for MFC vehicle finance right there on Avo Auto


Once you have spotted your dream car, you can use the affordability calculator on the platform before sending a finance application request to Nedbank, which then liaises with MFC for finance. ‘Once we receive the request, our skilled team will personally help you with your application and negotiate with MFC to get the best deal for you,’ Klopper says.

The calculator is a useful feature and can help you gauge if you can really afford the car you want. Your credit history comes into play here. ‘Our calculator asks you for your salary and monthly expenses and then does a background calculation of how much you could afford when you buy a vehicle. The calculator is also linked to a credit bureau and does a credit check to make sure that you don’t have any judgments or defaults against your name. This takes only a few minutes on the site.’
