Cost of vehicle ownership
The Kinsey Report focuses on the price of car parts which ultimately affects your insurance premium and repair costs on a vehicle. The report highlights the true cost of vehicle ownership and has become the benchmark for independent parts pricing in the South African motoring industry.
Under the category of City Cars (entry level cars for first-time buyers), the Datsun Go has been named the best overall in the service, repair and crash parts sections respectively.
The affordability of Datsun Go parts, in conjunction with class-leading fuel consumption, makes the total cost of ownership (TCO) one of the best in South Africa. Not only is the purchase price of the car affordable but the TCO over the life of the car is the most affordable.
