Car Auction Grade 4.5

Japanese car auction grade 4.5 is unlike the higher grades (5, 6 etc), in that once you get below grade 5, the awarding of a particular grade starts to be less dependent on the age and KM of the vehicle, and more based on the actual condition.

The average age of a grade 4.5 car is about 5 years and the average odometer reading in the mid-thirty thousand kilometer range. But as with this Mercedes SL (1999 car with 62,000KM on the clock) shows, you will find that older cars can also qualify if they have very low levels of damage inside and out.
