These regional price fluctuations are due to local economic conditions impacting on pricing.
The relative prosperity and wealth in the North East is keeping prices inflated while in the South West, the struggling economy has the lowest used car prices that we have ever seen.
The South West is the cheapest place to buy a second-hand car in the UK. While buyers in the region are now paying an average of only £6,951 for a second-hand car, those in north east England are having to fork out as much as £10, 805 on average.
