Dealers 'must provide older used cars'

Franchised dealers are being urged to sell vehicles older than three years old with higher mileages.

Used car buyers guide Eurotax Glass's believes that such an action will combat the anticipated drop in supply in the used cars market.

The publication believes that if current conditions continue into 2011, there will be two million fewer used cars between one and five years-old in general use, when compared to 2008.

Glass's managing editor Adrian Rushmore is now calling upon dealers to introduce more older vehicles to the forecourts to plug the gap.

He explained: "This could be embraced into a two-tier system that allows for less-exacting standards of preparation for older examples.

"That would ensure preparation costs do not rise to the point where retail prices become unrealistically high."

Glass's recently released an online archive of used car values for the first time in its history, providing its widely-respected opinions to all registered web users.
