Not surprising you're blacklisted ! If you owe R 30,000 you just can't buy a new car --- you can't afford it. Anyhow, you already have one. Don't buy on credit --- if you can't aford iot, don't buy it. If they are taking you to court, you will need a lawyer, either privately or you might explore whether there is a free law clinic at your nearest law school. And maybe someone at the bank can advise you, but draw up a very strict budget and stick to it, saving all the money you can, to pay off your debts. NO clubs, parties, drinking, luxuries of any kind. No new clothes. No fancy hairdos. In future, even if you become again allowed to have one, do not get a credit card, only a debit card, and spend only what you can afford. And remember, the money you owe was not yours, but belongs to other hard-working people who through the banks, etc., lent it to you. Respect that

You WANT a new car? You cannot possibly expect to get credit if you have failed to pay the debt that you already have ... pay off all your debts first ... what a pleasure to be car-debt free??!! Why on earth would you want to incur more debt if you cannot even pay the debt you have ????

Why would you want to continue buying on credit...
Wow, how is not being able to get a new car setting you back when you have one already, that is paid off.Why not hold onto that until you can afford to purchase a new car with your own cash.
You sound like a very irresponsible person and no wonder you are black listed.
What to do... call all your debtors and make a plan to pay them what you owe, then you take it from there to have your name cleared and then... you do not bother with credit again!
