Motability Cars making Megabucks at Car Auction Today

With late low mileage used cars in short supply the day before the plate change, ex Motability cars were making way over trade book.

An 8k mile 09 reg Hyundai i10 1.2 Comfort auto for which there is a queue twice round the block set the ball rolling by making £4,900. A 33k mile 2011/60 BMW E92 320d SE Coupe sold for £17,500. A 16k mile 09 Fiesta 1,4TDCI Zetec Climate with a few scratches sold for £6,300. Even an ordinary 19k mile 09 Focus 1,6 Zetec was £5,950.

Four Nissan Qashqais were all serious money. A 16k mile 11 reg Jazz 1.4iVTEC EX made £11,000. A 6k mile 09 Nissan Note Acenta automatic sold for £5,800.

Not everything went mad, though. Bargain of the day has to be an 18k mile 09 Chevrolet Lacetti 1.8SX auto estate, sold for a mere £2,350, a perfectly okay, fine riding 38k mile 09 Renault Megane 1.6i Expression sold for £4,250, a 102k mile 2008/58 Mondeo 2.0i Zetec estate drove off for £3,650 and, unless I misheard and misread, a 27k mile 09 Focus CC 2.0 automatic sold for just £5,500.

In the Lex Autolease section what must have been one of the last pre-DPF Honda CR-V 2.2iCTDI EXs, a 15k mile 2009/59, sold for £14,400 and a trio of BMW 120d M-Sports from 2008/58 to 09 sold for between £11,000 and £11,850.

Some of the big stuff wasn’t making the required money, though. A 21k mile 11 reg Mercedes S350CDI Bluetec with AMG pack didn’t reach £35,000, a 25k mile 09 reg Porsche Cayenne diesel stopped short at £25,400 and a 22k mile 2001/61 Skoda Superb 1.6TDI Greenline S estate will be coming back for more than the £13,800 bid.

(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. ‘imp’ means unofficial import. Extras like ‘lthr’ and ‘nav’ are specified when they are not standard.)
