Apart from the diabolical driving standards here having the effect of making car prices artificially high, does anyone know why used car prices are this high. Most vehicles I have seen are of very questionable origin and levels of maintenance. I saw a Suzuki Jimny for sale at 5,500USD, is this a typo?, the vehicle had covered over 100,000kms and was the base model. Its accurate price is 2 - 2,400 USD (on a good day)the vehicle had white/blue plates so tax would not have been paid either. I saw a Mitsubishi Pajero advertised at 12,000 USD - that MUST be a typo, it should read $1,200. I sold a Mitsubishi Shogun (same car) in the UK before we left and the best offer was 1000GBP, it was a 1997 with 200,000 miles (320,000kms).
