The study sought to find out whether second hand car imports are doing harm or good to the Zimbabwe Motor Industry. Respondents were drawn from individual motorists and car assemblers in Zimbabwe. Data analysis reveals that it is wrong to posit that second hand car imports are threat to the motor industry since the car assemblers themselves do not have the capacity to produce cars at affordable prices to the generality of the Zimbabwean customers. Rather the imports have proved a relief to customers who can not afford the costly local cars. The results imply car assemblers should strive to lower the assembly costs to be able to out-compete the second hand car imports.


Keywords: Second hand cars, Car assembly, Motor industry.
