High Mileage Cars Double Cheap at Auction Today

High Mileage Cars Double Cheap at Auction Today


You may have been reading that poor sales of 60 reg cars is leading to a shortage of used cars at a time when the trade is usually swamped.


But that hasn’t made the leggy stuff more desirable.


Cheap cheapie of the day had to be a three year old 2007/57 Ford Focus 2.0TDCI Ghia 4-door saloon that, by covering 173,734 miles could hardly ever have got cold.


It sold for £2,300, and if the DMF, DPF and turbo had all had to be replaced might well have been fir for another mileage marathon.


Other cheapies included a 65k mile 06 BMW 320d SE, sold for £7,950, a 105k mile 2007/57 Mondeo 1.0TDCI 140 Zetec sold for £5,500s, a 21k mile R56 MINI One with alloys, sold for £6,600, a 22k mile 07 Polo 1.4S 80 sold for £4,500 and a 106k mile 06 VW Passat 1.9TDI 105 estate sold for £3,800.


But where traders have orders for cars, whether from the UK or from overseas, bidding can go ballistic.


Three examples today were a 94k mile 07 BMW 320d M Sport auto coupe, sold for £14,100, a 43k miles 2007/57 Freelander II HSE sold for £17,200, and a 39k mile 2007/57 Mercedes C220CDI Sport auto, also sold for £17,200.


(As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘pc’ means provisional, but close. ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘MNW’ means unknown mileage. ‘dmg’ means damaged. D/R means damaged and repaired. ‘fl’ means facelift. ‘H/T’ means hardtop. Extras like ‘lthr’ and ‘sat’ are specified when they are not standard.)
