The used car market in previous years boomed when a recession came and many people I know who are second hand car dealers made their most money in the recession so this recession is no different and the used car market I think is going to boom again. You see the less money people have the more they try and budget and with a newer modern car a lot of the servicing has to be done by the dealer or a qualified mechanic now when there is little money around and people are worried about losing their house, spending £300 on a service is just not an option and so they are going to look towards an older more home mechanic friendly car.

With older cars, changing the oil and the plugs is generally a simple task and can be done by most people and especially as there is a Haynes manual for almost every single car produced so doing the normal servicing tasks is a simple step by step job.
SO when looking for a used car for sale you need to establish what your budget is and how much you are willing to spend. I can’t help you with this is something only you can think about. However you can pick up some cracking used cars for around £1000 but then this is only after a quick look. If you are going to spend any more than three grand then I would probably go take a look at a dealer.
The other thing to consider when on the search for used cars for sale is to see how much parts are as a rule French cars generally have more expensive parts and the reliability is about average I have found with my experience they are reliable but when they go wrong they are expensive. German cars are good in the sense that the reliability is great and they tend to be over engineered but the parts are a little expensive I would say that they are more reliable than a French car.
Japanese cars are always reliable anything like Toyota or Nissan you can’t really go wrong the parts are a little expensive but there is a lot of UK Japanese breakers yards around so that is always an option. Now if you are on a really tight budget you can’t go wrong with a Ford or a Vauxhall these two car manufacturers have good cheap after market parts they are a doddle to work on and you can pick them up mega cheap.
A used car for sale is still something that should be taken seriously and if you have a friend that is slightly mechanically minded take them a long to view the car as they will be able to spot anything that is out of the ordinary failing that then give the AA a call or the RAC as they often do a service where they will view a car with you and give you the best advice they can whether it is a good buy or a sack of spanners.
