Which second-hand cars are sold the fastest?

These that are between 3 and 14 years old, are small and the cheapest! Dacia and Daewoo are sold in more or less two months! An interesting fact is that older and more expensive cars are sold faster! For a 3 years old car people tend to pay about 800 EUR and for a 15 years old one they can pay up to 2500 EUR.

After recent Diesel affairs, petrol engines have become very popular, especially in cheaper vehicles. And when to sell a car? The best time to do it is during summer. And remember - the state of a vehicle is extremely important, however people tend to pay more attention to the car's looks than to its technical state...

Maybe it's high time for a second-hand hybrid?

An interest increased by 40% this year and for sure it will be even bigger. Cars of this type are changed approximately every 4 years by their owners and the hybrids boom was exactly 4 years ago.

Electric engines don't require any service but there are some important things to remember about!

The most important issue is the battery! Check if there is still a guarantee on it and remember that for these cars 300 thousand km is nothing.

The hybrids have small engines and batteries and their main task is to perform or support the most fuel-consuming actions (such us starting and taking over) - so they are perfect for driving in a city!

Buying a car is a risky deal even for car vendors?


Even car dealers can make bad decisions. We have recently heard about a seller who gave on consignment a stolen vehicle to a car lot... The case was not yet reported so an oblivious car dealer gave him an advance...


It's good that the car was not bought by anyone! To avoid such situations, we always advise not to decide on purchase too fast and to check a VIN number EVERY single time!

A perfect gadget for everyone who tends to lose their car keys?

The key locator - something very useful for everyone who doesn't store keys in one particular place or simply is forgetful. How does it work? You need to attach a key ring of a coin size and your smartphone connects to it via Bluetooth.

The idea is great but in practice, it doesn't work very well - the application remembers where the keys and the phone were together for the last time (location is taken from the phone). But here the fun part begins - your smartphone shows if you are close or far from the keys (when someone else uses the application, the range is wider). Some of them also have a sound function - from the key ring with the keys attached and from the phone when you have the keys but can't find the smartphone!

It's a final end of ON (diesel) as well as of Pb 98 and 95. New symbols of fuel will be introduced!

From October 12 changes will be valid - a new directive of the European Council and Parliament 2014/94/EU will introduce an obligation to use new symbols for liquid fuel.

By October, the current symbols will have been gradually replaced by new ones at all gas stations in Poland:
In a circle: E5, E10 and E85 for petrol
In a square: B7, B10 and XTL for diesel fuel
In a diamond: H2, CNG, LPG and LNG for gas fuels

What a necessary change!

A speed block and the black box in a car?
A 'zero vision' - which means no fatalities in road accidents has to involve decreasing a speed limit and developing safety systems in vehicles.
A maximum speed of 30km/h in areas where cyclists travel as well and 70km/h where head-on collisions are possible - these are some of the new ideas. According to the World Health Organization, driving even 5km/h slower can prevent 30% of fatal injuries!

What is the real fuel consumption of hybrid vehicles?

According to Equa Index, it can be even 50% bigger than provided in a catalogue!

Volkswagen Golf GTE (1,4 l, 204 KM) – 6,8 l/100 km
Toyota Yaris (1,5 l, 101 KM) – 5,3 l/100 km
Hyundai Ioniq (1,6 l, 141 KM) – 4,9 l/100 km
Toyota Prius (1,8 l, 122 KM) – 4,1 l/100 km
Toyota Auris (1,8 l, 136 KM) – 4,9 l/100 km
Mitsubishi Outlander (2,0 l, 203 KM) – 6,1 l/100 km
BMW 3 series (2,0 l, 252 KM) – 6,2 l/100 km
Mercedes class C (2,1 l, 231 KM) – 5,3 l/100 km
Mercedes class E (2,1 l, 231 KM) – 5,5 l/100 km

As you can see, the weakest engine is not the most fuel-efficient one!

Tourists are the thieves' target. The thieves don't steal cars but they steal luggage!

It's been more and more difficult to sell a car itself and very often the things found inside suitcases (electronic devices etc.) are way more valuable.
That's why the thieves prefer to steal what's inside a car!

The most common is the 'suitcase' method which doesn't require a key to open a car. When you travel be careful at the parkings and rest areas, watch out for a fake kindness on the road (waving one's hand that there's something wrong with your tyre), 'accidentally' breaking a mirror or causing other small collisions...

s it the end of turning back the mileage counters? There will be a new European law!


Almost 50% of all the cars taken abroad have the mileage counters changed. The European Parliament wants to change that situation and create a database to which everyone would have access.


Additionally, the mileage record will be kept more often - it is said that it can be done even at every refuelling! For sure, it won't be done only during vehicle inspections but also during servicing or any other technical controls!


We're keeping our fingers crossed for that!

Lower third-party insurance - a new EU directive

Unfortunately, it will be only available to drivers who have never caused any collisions for example in Germany and would like to insure their cars in Poland. Now they do not have any discounts but it is about to change!

Moreover, a standardization of the discounts and the system itself in the entire EU will be forced. What is important, a system of indemnifying between the drivers from different countries will be unified.

Is it also the end of driving without a valid third-party insurance? Probably yes since that issue has also been handled! Currently, the fine for not having the third-party insurance is 1000 EUR!
