Used Car Buyers Queue Up For Quality


Autoquake, the UK’s largest online used car retailer, has revealed BMW is the nation’s most sought after used car brand.

In the ‘second chance’ section of the website, visitors to can register their interest in a used car which has already been reserved by another buyer, in case it becomes available again. A staggering 220 potential buyers asked to be emailed if one BMW 318i came back on the market, more than any other model.

The website also has a ‘coming soon’ page, where shoppers can ask for email alerts on cars which will shortly be in stock. Again, BMW tops the charts. One particular used BMW 118d M Sport had a queue of 145 buyers waiting before it was even on sale.

Plenty of other prestige cars have attracted lots of interest, and not just those with a BMW badge. 108 car buyers asked to be contacted if one Range Rover came back on the market. 95 buyers requested an email if a reserved Volvo XC90 became available again.

Quality mainstream cars are also popular with visitors to An amazing 180 buyers waited to find out if a Vauxhall Zafira 1.8i buyer changed their mind. Almost 140 shoppers asked to be told if a Mazda 5 2.0D became available again.

Fredrik Skantze, Autoquake’s CMO and co-founder, said: ‘There’s a shortage of quality used cars at the moment, so it’s no wonder buyers are queuing up to buy the most popular models.

‘At Autoquake there’s a constantly changing stock of nearly 1000 cars, so if we don’t have the car a buyer is looking for right now, there’s a good chance we will soon.’
