We never seem to see any cheapish cars for sale, any idea why is that. In the uk you can pick something up for a couple of grand easily. Am I looking in the wrong place?

Spanish car sale prices are always well above UK car prices.

With the new emissions zones being introduced in 2023, you may see more older cars appearing on the market but these will bring their own problems re emissions and access to areas with more than 50000 residents

Too early to get any idea of what will happen. Madrid had to drop what was going to be emission restrictions. And there will be exceptions - ket's wait and see.

Facebook Marketplace or coches.net will show you cheaper car prices & can be ok once you know a bit about cars & are familiar with the transfer system. If not then a Gestor could handle all that for you.

I know a lady who has a very clean car. MOT ‘d very recently and she rarely drives it  as travels with her husband. The car is about 20 years and drives perfectly. I think she wants €1200 or €1300 for it. It’s a 4 door silver Nissan Micro.

Can’t tell you very much more than that!
