How to get a great deal on a used car

Buying a used car is a route to owning a fantastic vehicle at a fraction of the price you’d pay for a brand new example, in theory at least. If you want everything to turn out perfectly with your used car purchase, you need to go in prepared and make the right decisions.  

Used cars make all kinds of financial sense but with extra variables like valuation, age and condition to take into account - plus all the websites, dealers, brokers and private sellers competing for the used car buyer’s business - things can get confusing.

Fortunately, we’re here to guide you through the process of buying a great second-hand car at the right price, with the level of service you want. Our handy used car buying guides are packed with information while our annual Used Car Awards identify the best used cars to buy in each market sector.
