I selected "It depends on the deal" but the reality is that I prefer to buy cars that are less than a year old, with less than 10,000 miles on the clock, then drive them into old age.

My DH's car fits that profile. He paid 30% less than he would have for a new car of the same model, with the same accessories (air-conditioning, etc).

My current car was bought new in 2000 and has done over 259,000 miles. In that time, we've been through 6 windscreens, multiple tyres, 2 exhausts, 2 clutches and 3 window-winders.
