How much is 16,000 miles worth?

OK,

I`ve found two 2.2 Civic Sports, both 2007 cars on `07 plates,

1, Milano red with 21,000 miles, just under 11,000 (at a Mazda dealer)
2, Blueish silver with 5,000 miles, just under 12,000 (at a Honda dealer)

Disregarding colour, is the lower mileage car worth a grand more? I`m looking at them this weekend so would value any thoughts.

Many thanks.......

The used value of a car is actually set by you, the buyer. If the price is too low, a car would sell over and over again, if it's too high it just sits on the forecourt.

So which would you buy?

If they were the same colour and it was a popular one (like red) then I'd pay the extra and have the low miles.

Personally though, I'd avoid the pale blue and keep looking.

IMO 5000 miles is suspiciously low for a 07 CTDi..... 21000 appears more like an expected mileage for a car that is upto 18 months old now.

I agree... There just was not a suitable one available when I got mine.
