Car buyers expect bigger used car discounts - and a 12 month warranty

Consumers are now expecting a greater discount on the cars they are buying.

And a survey on revealed that as the car gets more expensive, the greater the discount anticipated.

In the survey, 2.4% of people expected an £100 discount on a car priced between £5,000 and £10,000, but 19.3% expected a £500 discount.

Punters are also less willing to buy a car that doesn’t include so called ‘extras’.

The top three required extras that participants of the survey wanted when purchasing a car were: 12-month warranty (at 83.6%), a minimum of 10 months MoT (74.6%) and 12 months tax (73.7%).

But age and mileage restrictions have loosened: 72% of participants were willing to purchase a car with 50,000 miles or under on the clock, suggesting that we are more willing to buy older, heavily used cars than ever before.
