A study conducted by the Zambia Institute of Policy Analysis and Research revealed that the used car market in Zambia is estimated at 50,000 registrations in a year. With an average age of the vehicle at importation estimated at 13 years and growing. These used cars also have a lower roadworthiness life span when compared new cars , estimated at an average of 8 years lower than a new car.

In the used car market, information concerning the fitness and history of the vehicles being sold is usually inadequate. This means that many buyers may unknowingly buy an un-roadworthy vehicle or one that is statutory non-compliant. This has implications on both value for money and public safety.

It is for this reason, that Automark has embarked on Quality Education Campaign aimed at educating the public on what to look out for when buying a used car.
