I am hoping to get a replacement car asap as ours is about to die, she is coming up to 10 years and can't take any more.
Well my questions is this, I would like to get a 2008/2009 used model (low mileage) but was wondering is it worth waiting for the 2010 model to come out next month as this may reduce the price of a used car?
Hope that makes sense.
I can only go as high as 8000 as I will be getting a loan with work and you can't get anymore than this, The reason I am going though work is the ARP is only 2.8/3%.

It is still a buyers market so make sure you push the salesperson as hard as you can.
They really need your business.

If your car is 10 years old and has a current tax and MOT it will qualify for the scrappage scheme if you order a brand new car before the end of March. We got 2000 off the price of our new Peugeot recently. Well worth going into the dealership and asking them to give you a price.

It's not ten untill August and I don't think it will last till then, Plus the MOT runs out next months and the TAX is due in May.
