Used Cars Frequently Asked Questions

Generally, 12,000-15,000 miles per year is considered average. A higher mileage usually means more wear and tear, with parts like brake pads and batteries needing to be replaced.

However, a high mileage isn’t the only determining factor when buying a used car. Other things such as how well it has been maintained are equally as important to consider.

There are several steps you can take before you purchase a used car:

• Check the registration document
• Read its service history
• Browse MOT history
• Consider an HPI check
• Get the repair history
• Ensure the current owner has paid a finance agreement for the car in full

Cars are usually reliable for up to five years if they’ve been looked after. But a well-maintained 10-year-old car could be a better investment than a newer model that hasn’t been cared for as well.

Budget is also a factor. The older the model, the lower the cost. But you may end up paying more for repairs and parts.

Although there is no general rule, there are some trends to be aware of. New cars are released in March and September and this is when many buyers may choose to trade their current vehicle in.

Yes, you can. It’s one of the most effective ways of making sure a car meets your needs. That’s because it allows you to inspect the car’s condition up close and get a feel for the vehicle before you buy.

Used cars are usually cheaper to insure because they are seen as less valuable than new vehicles. However, it’s not always the case.

There are other factors that determine how much you would pay. These include your personal driving history and the level of coverage you choose.
