Their study revealed:
When asked: If you had a choice, what would you buy - a used car, very low mileage, with a “62” number plate? Or exactly the same make, model and spec with “13” reg plate for the same cost?
Finally, the colour green is also associated with bad luck, with 12% of those questioned saying they would never buy a green car.
Louis Rix, Director at Carfinance247.co.uk, says: “The study shows that more than one in ten motorists associate the number 13 with bad luck, and would rather buy the same, make and model of vehicle – at the same price – to get a “62” registration plate.
“The research also showed that 12% of motorists would never buy a green car – tying in with our sales data last year that showed that green, used, cars were among the least popular colour”.
"It will be interesting to look back and see if this year was really bad luck for new car manufacturers and good luck for used car dealers!"
