Women are most concerned with price and fuel efficiency when buying a used car

A survey commissioned by mycarcheck.com, a vehicle history checker service has revealed that women are most likely to buy a used car based on the overall cost of the vehicle, particularly the sales price, plus the fuel efficiency and running costs.
In contrast, men were more likely to consider looks and power after their most important factor, the sale price.

Once women have selected a car they wish to buy, they feel most nervous checking the car for mechanical or physical issues, whereas men were most put off by having to negotiate a price.

The survey also revealed that men and women differ on their views on their driving ability. Over 60% of men believe they are good drivers, whereas only 47% of women think so.
