It has always been like that. Perhaps they rebuild the production line during the summer vacations and start makeing the new model when the rest of the workers arrive after the vacation. This means that the next years model started selling in around September. Now it is a little more complicated as EU decided some years ago that the model year for a car is the year it was first registered. This makes it difficult when looking for used cars as a car registered at the beginning of a year can be quite different from a car registered at the end of the same year. I don't know about Germany, but here in Sweden it seems that we just ignore that EU decision... > > The 5 speed automatic is better than the 4 speed automatic. > > i thought so already, because it is more robust and cos it has 5 instead of > 4 speeds it will be more economic i guess > and finer gearing. i think i will go for a manual rather then.. The 4 speed automatic is not bad, so I think the decision should be based on if *you* want an automatic or a manual gearbox. > does around 20.000 EURO for a 2-3 year aero with around 60.000km sound ok to > you?` I have no idea. Used cars in Germany is much cheaper than here in Sweden (don't know why) and lots of Swedes travel to Germany to buy cheap used cars. A quick search for used 9-5 Aero here in Sweden matching your description show prices around 24.000 EURO. -- G–ran Larsson hoh AT approve DOT se
