Are the government ever going to put older cars in the new tax system? Some one was telling me older cars will be treated the same in tax as the post 08 cars.

It is an interesting thought but I am not entirely sure if they could implement it. Measurement of CO2 on cars is a relatively new thing and there aren't always CO2 figures for older cars in existence. You will notice that when you try and import and older car. As it stands, if they don't have a figure for an older car available then they charge the full 36 per cent. So to be honest I would imagine that any change like this would be unlikely for now.Answered by: Complete Car Adviser
