Star car and what it’s worth

Star car

VEHICLE: Honda Accord 1.8 V-TEC SE manual 5dr
AGE: 00Y
MILEAGE: 88,000
WHERE SOLD: BCA Blackbushe
PRICE: £3,225
% of CAP CLEAN: 128%

BACKGROUND: A popular model in a good colour, this car was direct-entered by a major bank. The five-year-old car had been well maintained and was offered at a sensible mileage.

A good level of pre-sale preparation meant the car looked its very best and – of course – the V5 and MoT were present. Pretty much a tick in every box and adding some BCA buying power, this car sold for well above CAP Clean.
