New Shape Mondeo Down to £4,500 at Auction Today

I started to get the message when a metallic red 07 Mondeo 1.8TDCI 125 Edge estate with 96k miles sold for £5,350. Then this rough 95k mile 07 1.8TDCI 100 Edge hatchback rocked up, reached its reserve of £4,400 and sold for £4,500.


There’s nothing wrong with Mondeo residuals. A 24k mile 08 2.0TDCI Zetec estate sold for a solid £11,000. It’s simply that today’s much smarter market values mileage, condition and spec even more than it used to. No point in a cheap car if its going to cost money to fix and still not be worth very much. They aren’t worth the risk unless they’re super cheap.


Another example: two 07-reg LandRover Discovery 2.7TDV6 automatics. The relatively base spec car with 43k miles sold for £15,400, while the HSE with 48k miles sold for £23,300. Base spec doesn’t sell. HSE does. Fact of life. But, of course, something for a punter who wants a Disco 3 but doesn’t have much money to take advantage of.


A 16k mile current model 09 Fiesta 1.6TDCI Zetec made a creditable £8,800.


Cheapie of the day to my mind was a 30k mile 2008/57 Cold 1.1 CZI, still under warranty, which sold for just £2,550.


While best buy of the day was? Just run your eyes down the list and see how quickly you spot it.
