Automatic cars are proving to be an increasingly popular choice in the UK as many drivers are enamoured by their breezy, no-fuss driving. Many find them easier to drive, while others are glad to be free of their manual gearbox.
Thanks to this popularity, the UK market is now filled with used automatic cars. The market is so saturated with them, in fact, that it’s difficult to know what brands to trust, who to buy from and what to look for.
