    UK new car sales surge again.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 25 May 2015, 12:18 pm

    2015 SMMT figures for April car registrations show a 10-year high, with over 185,000 in one month alone

    Figures released today show that the surge of new vehicle sales is still gathering momentum. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders declared last month the strongest April for ten years, with over 185,000 dealer registrations on the books.

    Find out more about this and other subjects from AUTO-EXPRESS




    If anything shows that there is more money around in certain areas, this does.

    It is still a shame that about a half or more of  British society have never owned a new car, and undoubtedly never will.

    Anybody ?

    Yep, there is still plenty of money going around, it is just not in the pockets of the ones who struggle to survive every day.

    I suppose that as new cars will be outwith the buying range of the poorer people this will ensure that the second hand car market keeps going strongly.

    In my opinion, the second hand car market is just as important as the new car market is.

    I guess that if we were all well off we too would buy new cars and if we did the second had car market would collapse.

    I know one thing: I am a hard working teacher and I cannot even afford a second hand banger never mind a new one.
