High Mileage Hitting Prices Hard at Auction

There are still pockets of demand in the market, most coveted in the RHD export market. But generally prices are down on last month and anything bashed about or with serious mileage is very hard to shift.

Even Audi TTs, previously hot little numbers, have taken a slide with a 24k mile 08 2.0TFSI selling for £13,700, a winceworthy £2,945 behind trade book.

Risky but cheap buys included a 97k mile 2007/57 Alfa 159 1.9JTDM gone for £4,450, a 126 mile 2005/55 BMW 320iSE sold for £4,150 and another, this time a 105k mile 08 gone for £5,950.

Two hot BMW diesels found leadfooted drivers. The 65k mile 2008/57 BMW 335D SE Touring auto made £13,800s. And the 79k mile 08 = 535D M Sport auto sold for £16,100s

Where do you go with an 84k mile 2005/55 Jaguar X-Type 2.0D Classic with no leather and not even a set of alloy wheels? The answer was £3,250, because a forecourt £4,495 might attract someone looking for a Mondeo in a Savile Row suit.

Two very cheap Mazdas were a 108k mile 08 Mazda 3 1.6D 90 S 5-dr at £3,100s. And a 27k mile 2008/58 Mazda CX-7 2.3T with leather at £9,600s.

Current shape Fiestas were worth keeping an eye on. Dearest today was an 18k mile 09 1.25 Zetec in Squeeze Green sold for £6,650, though another almost identical, sold for £6,350 and an 18k mile 2008/58 Style 1.2 3-door sold for £5,350. That’s up on what 2-year-old Fiestas traditionally made.

Cheapest car of the day was a 120k mile 2005/54 Peugeot 307SW 2.0HDI 90 S, gone for £1,550s. Only 5 seats, but still a useful car which I hope not to see spoiling a family holiday on a hard shoulder somewhere this summer.
