Irish Used Car Mileage June 2011

Yesterday, we uploaded in excess of 220,000 mileage readings into the NMR. As of the 21st June 2011, which just happens to be the longest day of the year, at 18:00 the National Mileage Register contains 4,571,907 individual mileage readings. At this rate, hopefully we should reach the 5 million reading milestone by the end of 2011.

Money saving tips

As ever, when buying a second hand car, carry out a mileage check and always ask for service history. If an up to date service book is not available assume that the vehicle has not been maintained correctly, and reduce your offer price accordingly.

If a car dealer has a Cartell sticker in the window, ask him to give you a full Trade report (including mileage check). He should be happy to give you a copy free of charge.

To assist cash strapped motorists, have recently reduced their prices for car checks on vehicles that are 8 years and older, a mileage check on the NMR has never been cheaper..

    Agree, check first the history of the car before buying it.
