|Ford Fiesta Zetec||30.6%||15.17%||£993|
|VW Golf GTi||20.69%||9.36%||£4,211|
Mark Bailey, Head of CDL Vehicle Information Systems, which owns mycarcheck.com, said: “Ford Fiesta Zetec retained its title as our most searched model, followed, as in 2016, by the Mini Cooper. VW’s Golf GTI nudged the Vauxhall Corsa SXI down to fourth to reclaim the third place it held in 2015.
“Second hand car buyers should note that serious warnings have risen again, to 30.8% of all checks in the first six months of 2017. The top 20 makes averages are now 18.15% for write off, 10.12% for outstanding finance and 0.89% for stolen.
“Check before you buy to confirm that the one you’re looking at has a clear history and a Fiesta Zetec should deliver fantastic value for money – that’s why it remains the UK’s most popular used car.”
