Auction Prices Starting to Edge Up

Mon, 03 Dec 2007
When a 23k mile 2004/54 facelift Jazz SE CVT-7 sold for just £5,300 I thought, eh? But then I spotted the damage at the back. And, just to rub it in, a 28k mile 04/54 SE manual promptly made £6,200, closely followed by an undamaged 20k mile 04/SE that made £6,850. Even 1.2S were up, with an 11k mile 2006/56 selling for £6,150, about £350 more than last week.

Hondas generally are on a roll with a24k mile 04/54 Type R making £10,050 and a 34k mile o5/55 1.6 Executive selling for £7,350.

MINIs were strong too, with some lucky lady’s Christmas present, a 30k mile 06 Park Lane with, it has to be said, a few stone chips going for £10,550.

But it wasn’t all like that. A 33k mile 05 Focus 1.6TDCI 110 LX bid strongly to sell for a still reasonable £6,150 (£1,650 more than Friday’s 88k mile estate). A 103k mile 02/52 BMW 320CI 2.2 auto coupe sold for £5,950. A 69k mile 02/51 PT Cruiser was an oddball buy at £2,700. And some of the cheap cheapies were really cheap.

Perhaps not the 95k mile 97P Citroen AX 1.0i Dimension gone to become someone’s son’s first car for £275.

But £500 for a virtually one owner 89k mile 94L BMW 730i? And a 116k mile 94L Mazda 626 2.0iGLX 5-dr gone for £200?

My newsagent had 200,000 miles out of his, no trouble at all.

Prices may be starting to rise but if you want a cheap car get down to the auctions quickly. Because unless the economy completely collapses they’ll be a lot dearer in January.

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. ‘dmg’ means damaged. ‘fl’ means facelift.
