    That's insanely cheap, which leads to me think there's something wrong with it. Either accident/flood damage, a rebuild, no engine etc.

    Aren't there like 5 different models from 2017? Is this a Bank Repo Auction?

    We sold my moms 1998 Corolla for R30k a few months back. It had 400k km on the clock.

    R45k for a 2017? That is either madness or it is made of body putty or something.

    IIRC auction cars are sold "as is", ie If the car breaks down and you need to change the engine after 2 days of use then that bill is fully on you. So maybe take a mechanic friend with you to inspect the car
