Selby, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 04, 2009 -- The Volkswagen Beetle has won a place in the hearts of the British people for its nostalgic associations with hippies and surfing, quirky design and its cult status, which has recently contributed to a resurgence in its popularity. Along with the Mini Cooper, its reclaimed âcoolâ status means it is the top car of choice for teenagers who have just passed their tests. But the price tag of a new Beetle can be prohibitive, especially in the current harsh economic climate, which is making it even more difficult for parents to buy that dream car for their newly qualified teenager. However, there are still plenty of Beetles amongst the plethora of used Volkswagen cars on the market today, for a fraction of the price of a new model. The trick is knowing where to look.
Thanks to the rise of Internet retailing, practically anything can be bought and sold on line, and used cars are no exception. One online used car portal, www.autoweb.co.uk, is rapidly gaining a reputation for offering the most comprehensive UK list of used cars available on the Internet. The secret of the siteâs success is that it has pioneered free advertising for private sellers, meaning that it has never been easier to advertise a used car to such a large audience.
Coupled with that, over 750 dealers across the UK have signed up to the site, which means that literally thousands of used cars for sale are accessible at the click of a mouse, making the search fast, painless and rewarding.
Whatever the make, model or price range, there is bound to be a bargain to suit everyone and the websiteâs clever search tool makes the process quick and easy.
For teenagers who dream of owning their own Beetle, a search through the used VW cars, will quickly return hundreds of results from across the country, complete with images and detailed information.
The site also offers useful car reviews to give the first time buyer some pointers in the right direction and find the ideal used car for them, setting the young motorist on the road to many happy driving years ahead.
