    Car shopping (pre-owned)....sites 6th Sep 17 at 5:33 PM
    What are the best sites for used cars in the UK?

    I've been using Autotrader, gumtree and motors.co.uk. The first 2 have a fair proportion of private car sales - the last one is 99.9% trade. Occasionally search through ebay but as yet not successful.


    Are there any other sites that are worth trawling through? I'm buying in the £8000-£13,000 price range.


    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Look at them all, asking for a best suggests that none of the others should be considered, it depends what car you want.

    You can specify only trade in the advanced search settings on Autotrader.
