May 18, 2015
When you’re in the process of choosing a car, one of the key factors on your checklist should be reliability. It’s common nowadays to get distracted by the look, the technology, the impressive specifications, but at the end of the day these mean nothing if the car keeps breaking down on you! This might sound obvious, but it’s important to remember that value must take equal or higher precedence over aesthetics if you want to happily drive your car for years to come.
Interestingly, a 2015 Auto Trader analysis showed that the average person in the UK is willing to pay 32% more for a car than two years ago. From analysis undertaken by online used car giant, Autotrader, it was found that the average asking price of a used car rose from £16,586 in April 2013 to a massive £21,844 in April 2015.
What does this imply? That the UK public is prepared to pay significantly more for a good quality car. This possibly means more demands for impressive performance and reliability.
