More Cheap Cars at Auction Today

Mon, 29 Oct 2007
Not all of them, of course. There are always some on the most wanted list. But today there were plenty of cheap part exchanges.

98k mile 97P Proton Persona £120. 61k mile Skoda Felicia 1.3LXi £140. 97k mile 96P Rover 620Si £210. A Backroom favourite 106k miles unwarranted 1996N Nissan QX 3.0SEL with leather £350. 169k unwarranted 1999T Ford Cougar V6 £1,000. And, possibly bargain of the day, a 115k mile 04 reg pre facelift Rover 75 2.0CDT Connoisseur in fine fettle that went for £3,275.

Yet another Maxima QX V6 SE+, this one a 56k mile 02 was bang on book at £3,700. And a couple of bidders got into a right old fight over a very ordinary 117k miles unwarranted 97R Passat TDI 90 S. One of them ended up paying a whopping £1,625 for it.

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘MNW’ means unknown mileage.
