Sensible Fleet Prices At Auction Today

Fri, 01 Feb 2008
The used car market definitely doesn’t seem to be recession hit. Sure it’s a bit slower than usual in January, but there’s still plenty of demand from customers with the money.

The 23k mile 2006/56 Jaguar Sovereign TDV6 in the photo sold for £26,400, which was about right. An 88k mile 2004/54 Audi A6 2.7TDI V6 came for £9,850. A 57k mile 05 reg Jaguar X-Type 2.0D Sport estate went for £10,400. A 71k mile 2005/54 Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance facelift estate was £9,900.

Were there any bargains?

Closest I saw among the ex-fleet cars was a 61k mile 04 reg Citroen Xsara Picasso 2.0HDI looking surprisingly good in solid white. That sold for £3,600. While £1,875 really wasn’t a lot to pay for a 64k mile Renault Laguna 1.6 Dynamique.

Here’s the full list in order of the sale. 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. ‘s/r’ means sunroof.
