Rob_leics By the time the new one comes out the current model will be have been in production for 6 years or more - you certainly see some C-Max on 53-plates - that's about right I think, and if you think it's not then you're basically advocating less competition in the market which is usually bad for us, or you want to see Ford stand still.

Although values do take a knock when the new model comes out, depreciation has more to do with massive oversupply in the global car market. Which means that almost all manufacturers are being supported to some extent by national governments.

Anyway, the used values won't keep falling fast for a bit, there's going to be a big shortfall of late used cars coming through, and new prices will have to rise as most costs are in € and of course the pound has tanked recently.

Over production &over the top prices have now come to hit the big car makers.

Look at GM, they are shaking in there boots (Could say worse but family forum here!) and if they go down, so does quite a few car makers all over the world.

mjshort79 I have had my car two years and when I purchesed it it was on the fourcourt for 7795.

It had 30000 miles on the clock then.

I went to ask what i would get on a trade in about a year ago now i think it was due to all the trouble i was having with it.

The car had 34000 miles on it when i went to trade it in and they offered me 5000 and the salesman told me that was stretching it.

I mean you buy a new that is the new shaped model then all of a sudden heres a new model and your car is now a 2 year old car thats worth half its value simley because it is now the old model.

R7BKR I know what you mean Michael,

Mines an 06 reg 2l Ghia, with loads of 'toys' and listed at 19,995three years ago today (Happy birthday to my C-Max).

I bet I'd be lucky to sell it for anything more than about 7,000 private and even less as a trade in.

mjshort79 To many cars being brought out nowadays it's stupid.

I mean you buy a car new then in a few years theres another model out and yours is now the old shaped model.

I know cara devalue anyway but it dont help when the companys producing them are bringing out new models every 5 minutes making your new car th old shaped one.

my neighbour has just sold a 06 2 litre focus with 8000 miles on the clock for 6000 he got it new for 17000.

Its ridiculous
