Cars with high mileage that cannot be sold: 8 main problems

Better not to buy something that is impossible to sell without big losses. But if you choose the car for the long haul, on the contrary, there is a chance to save money, taking into consideration malemasturbating car on the secondary.Sergei Zinoviev “Behind the wheel”

Let’s start with the disclaimers: quickly you can sell anything, even rubbish. But it’s a question of price — the trash is also take only at rates of Vtorchermet. If the price does not underestimate relative to the “average”, then a buyer for some can wait a very long time. And then it Willy-nilly will have to throw off the price.

Secondary market in a simplified manner — the three main sales segments: dealer trade-in firms-dealers (sometimes with fraudulent approach) and individual trade without intermediaries “private ads”. In the network resources dedicated to selling used cars now sit all three segments, but only to real traders not a priority as much as possible to “weld” on the sale of the vehicle. They just need to sell it for a reasonable price. And because prices are assigned to the most realistic, and Torg gives the best results. A separate issue is that of private traders it is good to check on the subject of the documentary the purity of the goods, fines of hanging and twisting of the mileage, but most of them ordinary citizens without criminal tendencies. If such checks are a burden, it is better to apply the trade-in. It’s safer and calmer.

However, it is the system trade-in flock all the most illiquid for one reason or another the model. Just because dealers often have no formal reasons to refuse to the client. And here is just a useful skill to distinguish true from potential liquidity illiquid. Universal formula on this point: from year to year, the list of poorly marketed models and configurations change. But there are generic factors influencing the rate of sales of second-hand equipment and price dynamics.

1. Broken and restored after the accident

Here the logic is simple. Such machines are cheaper, but who wants immediately after purchase to bother with repairs? I want to “he sat down and went”! The same car, which is clearly visible traces of a thorough renovation (e.g., with a gauge LCP), can be a bunch of hidden body defects, not detectable by cursory acquaintance.

Under other equal conditions, the sane people of such purchases are trying to avoid, and why even slightly damaged copies of sometimes taking too long on the shelves.

2. Cars from taxi

On sites personal ads a lot of cars in taxi livery. For the most part in the mass model, they can be with manual gearbox, and automatic gearbox. But the fact that they worked in a taxi, is alarming. It’s hard to think of a reason that would sell fresh car-taxi. Most likely it is killed or almost killed the instance — to bring it back to normal, will have to invest unknown how much money, starting with a complete reshuffle of the chassis. But probably there and the motor is on its last legs, for a taxi on the secondary normal run is 200-300 thousand km, and 400 found.

In General, ex-taxi on the secondary market need to evaluate the ratio age/mileage. Annual mileage of a taxi (in Moscow) — 80-150 thousand kilometers. If a three year old car the next 300, it seems to be true, but if the 100 little suspicious. The first thought is twisted counter. To refrain from buying the best in both cases.

3. Overpriced

Some brands (particularly Suzuki) sell new machines more expensive than direct competitors with similar equipment. It is clear that in the case of Suzuki it’s worth it. But if the buyer selects one of the three or four models-classmates, such machines likely to be sold below.

Second option: the previous owner was in the process of operation replaced some broken expensive unit (motor, gearbox) or invested in a major overhaul. According to documents old car, but the engine it is almost new, it induces the seller to raise the price. However, people briefly looking through the ads in such details usually do not penetrate. And the price compared with other same cars with similar mileage and equipment to be deterred — it can be higher by 100-150 thousand rubles.

Finally, the third common option: complete “full stuffing” with a heart optional packages. For new machines the difference in price between “base” and “full stuffing” can be two-fold. Resale slightly negates the difference, but still “meat” on the average much more expensive than “base”. For premium brands that are irrelevant; — there is a rich set no shock. In the budget segment the preferences of others.

The GL-class in the secondary housing in the capital region is represented in amounts equal to some mass budget models. And the demand is extremely low. One of the reasons is provided to citizens is abhorrent to buy used.The GL-class in the secondary housing in the capital region is represented in amounts equal to some mass budget models.

4. Reputation transmission

The years of dealing with variable-speed drives and robotic boxes (with active information support of the media tend to dramatize) gave rise to the opinion that these types of transmissions are good, but only while they’re on warranty. Problems can begin with a 40-70 thousand mileage and will inevitably lead to serious repair — in severe cases, the estimate reaches 120-150 thousand rubles. These estimated costs upset citizens that are considering the opportunity to purchase, for example, used Juke or Qashqai.

Kachkaev with the CVT on the secondary market — the vast majority. Mileage varies greatly, but the rare cars with mileage less than 50 thousand. And all that more at risk due to aggregates with a dubious reputation. Despite the fact that many instances of variable-speed drives regularly go for 150-200 thousand. The Russians are more inclined to classic machines. Although there are structurally very bad.

Strange, but this is not true models of the Golf and the Octavia with the same equipment.Popular Tiguan with supercharged 1.4 TSI engine and DSG, as it turned out, it is not easy to sell for a reasonable price.

5. The reputation of the engines

In European countries, does not bother anyone diesel, turbo diesel and petrol victims of downsizing ultra-small volume, say 1 liter. Even three-cylinder. In Russia, a different mentality based on traditions. With Lada, the Moscow and Volga we are accustomed to simple and clear atmospherical, preferably the series of “fours”. The diesel engines we’re still alien because of doubts in stable quality of diesel fuel at filling stations.

This is partly justified — in December you can easily run into the remnants of a summer diesel fuel. And the price for some time ceased to be attractive.

Anyway, many models with turbo on the secondary market have limited the demand. And it does not depend on age or mileage of the car. Also do not demand any engines of large cubic capacity a volume of over 3 liters and a disadvantage of a taxable power. This is a product for connoisseurs, as such he remains on the secondary.

A common problem X6 and other BMW models — bad reputation complicated and capricious gasoline 4.4 betterbodies series N63. To sell cars with this engine it turns, but much off his price.A common problem X6 and other BMW models — bad reputation complicated and capricious gasoline 4.4 betterbodies series N63.

6. Attitude to the brand

In some cases it is difficult to say what it depends on. With Chinese brands is clear: from the stereotype “all Chinese — brittle junk, reeking of phenol” we have not yet got rid of. But with the French Peugeot and Citroen, not so much. After recently “fawn” we sell tens of thousands, and today the demand for new products of these brands has fallen to a frightening low. And the same attitude to them on the secondary.

The simplest example: the Mitsubishi ASX sold well, and new and used, and its technical twin, the Peugeot 4008 — barely.

If we are interested in minimizing the cost of repairs and maintenance, then the secondary market is better to buy the model mass — to them more offers of services and more spare parts.

7. Equipment

Demand is highly dependent on equipping a specific instance. In the budget segment with the smallest demand for secondary housing are the minimum configuration — with the stunted engine, with manual transmission, without air conditioning and some other Goodies.

At the same time, not many wishing to purchase a budget model in the maximum configuration — for most it’s unnecessary. However, the presence of the tow bar and roof rails and a slightly greater price and liquidity.

People choose Duster.One of the most unprofitable acquisitions — Nissan Terrano, which is a technically superior copy of the Duster, but substantially more expensive. People choose Duster.

8. Rare and specific models

It is not all clear, each model has their own individual aura. For example, the so-called charged hatchbacks (such as the Focus RS version) is spent hurrah, even at high mileages. Not so difficult to find buyers for Nissan Nismo performance versions. Is sold on the secondary crossovers Mini — but only four-wheel drive versions. And although some buyers are not so much drivers able in practice to use the advantages of a 4×4, monoprivodnom “the miniks” often lie.

A cautious attitude is maintained for a long time for any new brands: in particular, DS and Genesis. But worse still is the situation different kinds of hybrids. The hybrid not only that, a “thing in itself”, and the battery has a limited life. The factories claim that “the whole life of the car”, but this is often not the case. Sales keep difficulty high-voltage battery diagnosis and understanding of the high cost of its forced replacement.

For these reasons, sunken on the hybrid, keep in mind that in three or four years to gain for him an adequate amount of will not work. The trade-in it will probably take, but in this scheme the profit is based on the acceptance beushnye machines at low 7-15% price.

About possible losses

Liquid and illiquid in the secondary market scientifically determined by the drop in prices for the year. The most popular model (Renault Sandero, Mazda CX-5, Toyota Land Cruiser) on the secondary lose in value 2-5% per year. The unclaimed — more than 10%, in some cases up to 18%. The leaders of the group of illiquid — it’s mostly the models of premium brands (an initial value of 3 million rubles), their prices on the secondary market fall in the 500-800 thousand rubles per year. And cold attitude towards them is generated by expectations of the costs of possible upcoming repairs to the brands Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Land Rover Range Rover repairs would be expensive. The percentage fall in prices, unfortunately, fragmentary and unsystematic, vary from region to region. Therefore, there is no “one-size list of what not to buy.” But the overall selection criteria we introduced and hope it will help you when choosing.
