I believe that there are two factors as to why secondhand cars are more expensive in Spain:-
1) New cars are more expensive (generally due to higher taxes). This pulls up the prices of secondhand ones
2) Cars (and their parts) last a lot longer here. The dryer climate and lack of salt on the roads (esp. in the south) means that cars last a lot longer. The lack of traffic (less slowing down, breaking and changing gear) can reduce wear on parts as well.
Cars certainly last longer here. I have two oldies. A 13 year old Ford Focus and a Citroen Berlingo that is not far short of its 20th birthday. Both get through their respective ITV's with little problem - they'd have been scrapped in the UK by now! _________________ Graeme
