If you are going to buy a used car in the UK, it is likely that you are not considering all the factors that you should, since buying a second-hand car is different from buying a new car. Here we give you several factors that you may be overlooking when you analyze the prices of used cars.

Vehicle depreciation rate

Your choice of a model shouldn’t depend on which depreciates the least so that reselling your used car will give you a lower price as compared to the price you purchased it at. But you can choose a model that depreciates quicker so that you can leverage this fact in your negotiation with your used car dealer.

If you have the current manufacturer's warranty

Used vehicles can enjoy the manufacturer's warranty if the maintenance has been carried out in official or authorized workshops. This is a factor that you should never overlook.

Repair costs

There are studies that show what you can expect to spend on repairs depending on the model you buy. If you are looking at used cars in the UK, it is because you are worried about the investment you are going to make into the vehicle and want to optimize it. This is a factor that must be considered.

Opinions about the vehicle

Since you are looking for a used car, take advantage of the experiences of other drivers. Compare your opinions especially on relevant aspects such as repairs, failures, etc. Watch out for opinions that only give a numerical rating since they don’t contribute anything to you. These ratings can be based on factors such as aesthetics or price which you already have your own opinion and do not need anyone else's.
