Let’s face it, buying a used car isn’t a walk (or drive) in the park. In 2019 alone there were over 7.9m used cars sold in the UK…That’s a lot of cars!

No wonder buying a used car might feel a little daunting. Not to mention the time and money you can waste on an unnecessary total car check and travelling to and from places to view and negotiate on vehicles.

This is where Car Guide can help. We’ve gathered industry data and millions of MOTs to provide better predictions and vehicle checks. We’ve got the data that really matters, so you can make the best decision possible without running up and down the country, throwing money away on car checks for cars that turn out not to have had an MOT Check or be dodgy.

A new way to buy a used car:

1

Compare vehicles from different places. Our platform provides a shortlist of vehicles you’re interested in making it easy to find your perfect car.

2

Use the buyer’s guide to spot possible issues and negotiate. Avoid wasting time on cars that don’t pass our test using our buyer's guide containing insider information. Compare cars to your heart's content!

3

Test drive it, negotiate and buy it! Once you’ve found the car you like, you’ll also be armed with the information you need to get the best price. So, go out and buy it with confidence!

Hold on!
