Is it just me or has the price of second hand cars rocketed? Whereas I would be looking at quality marques about ten years old for less than two grand, there are many at over three. The niggles I see in these older cars are usually not mechanical, but electronic, but as a devotee of "bangernomics" I have no wish to get stung. The prices of these quality marques (like Jags, BMWs, Audis, Lexus, Subaru, Mercedes) seem to be astronomical at about eight years old with asking prices of seven grand plus. My experience with these is that you begin to get the little electrical faults in components that are inaccessible, untraceable, of embedded in some other system, and basically impossible for the inveterate fettler. You can get a new car for seven grand (admittedly a Dacia, but they are actually pretty good and selling like the proverbial). I do not want to fork out a large sum for something I may not like after a couple of months as I have to get comfy (age) and need leg room (tall). Please do not suggest your favourite vehicle, I am a fussy old git and know what I like.
