Morpeth, Northumberland -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/01/2015 -- Continued high sales volumes in the new car sector spell good news for used car buyers says Morpeth dealer.
Figures released this month from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders show that the UK's new car sales in March were up six per cent on the same period last year and are at their strongest since 1998. This represents three years of growth for the UK motor industry, partly helped by strong export markets.
March's figures were boosted by the new 15 plate registrations and the continuation of low interest rates. Increased numbers of more fuel efficient vehicles coming to the market has also encouraged owners of older cars to change as pump prices start to edge back up.
But what does all this mean for the secondhand market? For consumers looking to buy used cars Northumberland based dealer Alex Scott argues that it's good news. Higher new car sales means there are more trade-ins coming onto the forecourts which gives used buyers a greater range of choice.
With manufacturers increasingly offering three-year or longer warranties on their vehicles used buyers can be confident that they're getting a quality product that won't let them down and will offer peace of mind motoring.
