Cheap Sedicis at Auction Today

Wed, 12 Sep 2007
The FIAT Sedici 1.9 Multijet 120 diesel AWD is a good little car with no direct equivalent. The trouble is, unless the public takes to a niche car like this big time, a manufacturer can’t afford to market it properly, the public don’t know what it is, and it falls by the wayside. That’s why year old examples were only fetching £8,600 to £8,800 today. More than a mass-market car, admittedly. But not as much as it would have done if it had found more friends.

Same goes for the Croma. A good taxi. Yet today 06 1.9 Multijets 120s with 17k – 18k miles were selling for just £6,500 to £6,600. Actually an excellent opportunity for a taxi operator to pick up some chap, spacious diesels ideal for cabbing.

Year old Grande Puntos are Fiesta level prices. Better than Unos and Puntos in years gone by, so that will please FIAT and anyone who bought one. Very pretty cars.

From 17th September BCA offers new ways to pay. You can now use Mastercard and Visa to buy cars at the cost of a 2% transaction + VAT charge. (That’s £200 on a £10,000 car.) Cash payments attract a 1% + VAT handling charge. But there is no extra charge for using Debit cards, cheques supported by a My BCA account card, bank drafts or telegraphic transfers.

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means provisional bid. ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘dmg’ means damaged. ‘d/r’ means damaged/repaired.
