“It is extremely encouraging to hear that used car sales have increased by 0.9%, the highest turnover since 2008”, commented Sue Robinson, Director of the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) in response to new analysis published by Experian.
The report found that UK car buyers were favouring older, larger models, with cars aged 9 years and older seeing the highest sales increase of 6%.
Robinson continued “Again this continues to show positive growth in the market and signs of economic recovery with sales continuing to rise in the UK”.
