For the special investigation we spoke to a number of experts – from car dealership bosses to used car pricing analysts – to find out how the used car market exploded since the pandemic.
We look back at what happened during the lockdowns and analyse the reasons behind the big used car price jumps – from public transport avoiders to lockdown savers splashing out cash on a new car.
We investigate the supply issues gripping the motor trade and discuss if there is a used car price crash on the horizon any time soon.
Experts from pricing guides Cap HPI and Glass’s, consumer champions from The AA and Autocar as well as car dealers Nigel Hurley, of Carshop, and Chris Wiseman, of Wessex Garages all give their opinions.
TV’s Wheeler Dealer, Used Car Awards host and car dealer owner Mike Brewer also took part in the video and gave his opinions on the used car market.
