Voting is now open for the People’s Choice Winners of the 2017 Gumtree Pre-Owned Car Awards.
“Consumers have a vested interest in the pre-owned car category, so it’s important that they are given the opportunity to weigh in on these results,” says Jeff Osborne, Head of Automotive at Gumtree SA.
South Africa’s online classifieds giant launched the awards to shine a spotlight on the pre-owned category, which has particular relevance in a local market where second-hand cars outsell new models by more than 2 to 1.
At its core, the Gumtree Pre-Owned Car Awards aims to empower consumers to make informed car purchase decisions. This vision is built into each element of the awards, from the judging criteria, to the online hub which includes informative road test reviews of all 50 finalists – and now the People’s Choice vote.
“The results will reflect both the professional judgement of leading motoring experts, and the opinion of the everyday motorists, presenting prospective car buyers with a definitive, truly valuable guide to smart car-buying” says Osborne.
Both the judges’ winners and the People’s Choice results in all ten categories will be announced on 10 November 2017.
