Hello everyone. We have had a house in Sa Mesquida for seven years now and love it. But we no longer want to spend the high prices on car rental during the summer and are looking to buy a cheap run-around car now for this summer. It appears that most dealers won’t sell their vehicles until the end of October. Is this the case everywhere and does anyone know anyone who would sell now? I would really appreciate any comments or advice. Thanks so much. Joanna

You, me and hundreds of other owners have this thought right now. There is no such thing as a cheap car in the Balearics, Spain has the most expensive 2nd hand cars in Europe, with the Balearics even worse. You will pay thousands right now for the cheapest bangers.  It is a bit cheaper on the mainland, I am thinking of buying there and bringing it over on the ferry. Insurance will be at least 400 euros per year and it has to be continuous is you cant cancel it when you are not using it.....You need to think carefully how many weeks a year you will save in rentals....

Hi

We have a Ford Fiesta with low mileage which was owned by a 90 year old lady.

It’s been completely reformed and looks like new.

We got it for our grandson who is just 18 as a surprise.

However his father has bought him another vehicle unbeknown to us.

The car owes us 4200€.

So that is whet we want for it.

Whoever sees it first will definately buy it

Hi there,

I have a Volvo C70 convertible which I have decided to sell. It is a RHD model I brought in from U.K., but all duty /taxes have been paid and it sits legally on Spanish plates.

The car is Silver in colour, good tyres with just 66K miles since new…family owned since new, and fully serviced on the island. 

The car is in need of a replacement hood (£700 in U.K.) as the sun has attacked the rear window (glass) sealant. Other than this it drives superbly!

I am replacing the vehicle in June so availability could be very quick, selling for a quick sale for just €1750 Euro

Hi Joana

I’m happy to wait for you to come later this week.

I’m going for a short break to Mallorca on Monday so if you can come on Friday that would be great.

We live in Alaior

It really is a great car.

Best regards

Delboy

You can come Thursday if you would like.

You can then use the car whilst you’re here this time.

What time do you arrive?
