Used car valuation experts CAP are predicting a decline in the value of second-hand cars this year.

CAP says increasing sales of new vehicles to rental organisations are seeing the market flooded with six- to nine-month old motors as businesses get rid of stock before it gets too old. Together with the big incentives currently offered on new car purchases, this is hurting residual values of used vehicles across the market.

So, with "a gradual erosion of values at most years and for most models" looming large - here are 20 top used car bargains for 2013.

I have owned a Mazda MX5, 2.0ltre 2006 plate for the last 18 months and I must admit that this car is an absolute joy to drive. Out of all cars that I have ever owned since the age of 17 and I am now 46 years old - I would most cerrtainly recommend the MX5 as a must have car for any young person out there

That anyone on an anonymous website would tell the truth about driving a Fiat Punto blows me away, I personally drive an amphibious Aston Martin DB5 with an anti tank gun on the roof

I'm not surprised your P reg Punto as only 41000 miles on the clock. You must only use it in emergencies, I know I would. Lol

Superb car absolutely love it! Bought one 3 years ago (2.0 litre 2007 plate) and love every day that I drive it. Not great in the snow but roof down in the winter is a blast. Small cabin area so heats up very quickly and so quick to put roof down or up. For those on a budget who want a sports car it is ideal :-)

Cars are lumps of metal designed to get you from A-B. Why this country is so obsessed is beyond me! I`ve a Fiat Punto 75SX which has only 41000 on the clock (P reg) and it has never let me down!
