Jaguar launches the F-Type

This is the new Jaguar F-Type, a Two-Seater convertible sports car which was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, La Musee Rodin in Paris, France. It is the first time in nearly 50 years since Jaguar has come out with a 2 seater. Their last 2 seater was the Jaguar XK120 which was launched at the 1948 London Motor Show

The F-TYPE utilizes a new 8-speed “Quickshift” ZF automatic – supposed to facilitate fast and smooth gear changes. Why not just put a manual gear in?

Tips for finding the right used car

“DON’T BUY A CAR ONLINE”  is the top tip on The Car People site. They equate the experience to buying a house and I guess, I would have to agree with that. Before buying a used car, I would definitely want to see the car and more importantly, take it for a test drive before I actually buy it.

Buying a used car can sometimes be a bit of a gamble if you are not very car savvy. I bought my current car from a used car dealer and the experience was not that great. The reputation of used car dealers (and quite unfairly I should add) has been ruined by some rotten eggs and people are quite wary. One of the things that most people hate about used car dealers are the over eager pushy salespeople. However, there are several great used car dealers out there with great customer service and no irritating salespeople.

If you live in Manchester, Wakefield,  Sheffield and surrounding areas in the UK, and are looking for  reputable used car dealers, do check out The Car People. They have been operating for over 10 years and many of their customers go back to them again and again.

They have put together a list of 10 very useful tips you need to consider before buying a used car, which you can download as a pdf document on their website.
