Low mileage "lovelies"

Looking around in case I have to get a stop-gap car before the Captur arrives, you can sometimes find some real oddities:
5-years old or less with under 10,000 miles; the first one has under 3,000 on the clock

http://www.autotrader.co.uk/class...ion/automatic/make/ford?logcode=p
http://www.autotrader.co.uk/class...dealer/13837/usedcars?logcode=hlp

and then there's the  16-year old car with under 12,000 miles

Doesn't £7000 for a 5 year old Fusion seems rather comedic, whatever the miles on it?

Yes !

Why are you looking at Giffer Wagons like the Fusion and Grand Move?!!

That's why they are low mileage - Giffer chariots only do the weekly drive to Sainsbury's for cat food and whether's originals

I can't see the appeal in any of them - never has 'high miles' been more appealing!

A Fusion slusher with 7K on the clock is still a Fusion slusher.

They are all revolting.

I wasn't.  I did a  search for low mileage 5-door autos, just out of curiosity

They will all have done nothing but short journeys and be a good deal more shagged than something which has been living on the motorway. Avoid.

The one I may not be able to avoid is the 10 or 11 year old V70 auto with around 20,000 on the clock

Chris, I'll have to put you in touch with a customer of mine who bought a brand new Clio 1.6 auto Initale from me about 7 years ago, it came in for its cambelt renewal at 5 years old and had only done 700 miles, yes seven hundred!!

This. Or at least the low mileage isn't worth paying a premium for, certainly at that age. Slightly different if it's a 1965 Aston Martin DB5

At least a sensible owner getting it done on the age, not mileage (that would take about 42 yrs).

Lots of old people rarely drive their cars, and many don't drive because they are scared to, yet don't want to sell up as it's "losing their freedom". Lady who works for me has parents in law with car on drive that's not moved in 12 months. I suppose it does help the house looked lived in though.

Come on Chris, tell the truth.

You were looking at Giffer Wagons because you are one (a Giffer, that is, not a wagon)
