Saying that car prices have risen 40 percent since the start of the year, Ertemel“As before every holiday, our market is active in anticipation of the approaching Ramadan holiday. However, this time the reason for the high demand is not only the density of recreation. As a result of the general opinion that prices will rise after the upcoming general elections, the demand for the car is quite high. As a result of high demand, this leads to higher prices. Since the beginning of the year, we have seen a 40 percent increase in prices.” He said.

Another important recommendation is to have the vehicle checked by TSE-certified centers of expertise upon purchase. Although the rules to which we are subject require an assessment, from time to time our customers prefer to buy a car without an assessment.

However, the data we have shows that 85 percent of sales come from vehicles that are five years old or older. Nearly 60 percent of this segment is made up of vehicles aged 10 years or older. From this we understand that the main guideline that determines the purchases of our citizens is not the need, but only their budget. Of course, this situation is also influenced by the fact that the car is considered as an investment instrument. Our advice in this regard; it is as much as possible within the budget to prefer new cars that primarily fit the purpose of use. “ used phrases.
