So I see cars everyday with this message on the back. Is it legit? does anyone know more about this?
Yup its legit. All bummer is you have that huge decorated back window that has to stay like that. (So your driving around with their advertisment... That's why you get it at that price ) If that makes sense ?
A few months back there was a story on Carte Blanche about this. People who did this is not happy at all. As far as I can remember you finance the whole amount on your name then the company is supposed to pay back a portion of the payment each month to your account. The problem it seems is that the company does not always pay their share of the payment and you are stuck paying the whole ammount.
It was a while back and it could have changed by now....don't know if I will take that risk.
This is actually what i heard as well but just wanted to make sure that i don't have the wrong information. I really won't mind driving around with the advert on the back as I really need a cheap car to get around when DH is not available.
@ Denise, I just hope it has been resolved by now but will do my homework and let you know how it all works.
Got and check out the article by Carte Blanche.

From what i remember you can also only drive a certain amount of km every month,you still have to pay for insurance adn the car is never really yours
I only heard bad things about this. You can check all the negative feedback from customers at helopeter. You need to drive a certain amount of kms in order to qualify for the R799 pm
Now it doesn't sound like such a good idea. I checked Hallopeter.com and there are a lot complains about them .
It sounds too good to be true, has to be a nasty twist somewhere.
My cousin also wanted to buy one of these cars and I also refered her to hello peter. She has decided against it.
My mom always said that if it sounds too good to be true then it is. So tread carefully with things like this.
Would be nice to get in touch with someone that has taken up such an offer
Ditto Denise, I remember it well- alarm bells go off when I see stuff like this. The advertisement itself is illegal because it it the whole back windscreen and so obtructs a driver's view. I would maybe go onto Carte Blanche site and see if there has been any follow up stuff.
Agree, it would be nice
Ladies, DO NOT TOUCH IT!
Someone I know asked me to sign for them to get a car. It was a nightmare dealing with these people. They lied about how it works - when I saw the contract, it was completely different to what was agreed. We had to remove certain clauses.
Extremely dodgy and they gave my details to hundreds of companies. I now get daily calls from insurance and other companies offering their services.
I also understand that they use a lot of tactics not to pay their advertising fees. Take a look at Hello Peter.

Thank you ladies for all the info!!
I was also wandering how all this works!!
Lol, I drove pass one of these cars this morning, a brand new one, the lady looked so impressed with herself, seeing that she is driving a new car for only R499, but I know better, I just shooked my head as I drove passed her
Lol if only she knew. Really thankful that I got more info before I took up the offer.
you are bad,very bad.Always wondered what all that was about,now i know
Thank You for clearing this up GoToTo.
I have to agree, just sounds to good to be true.
Another one of those scams where they catch out desperate people.
