The partnership means users of CarGuide.co.uk will see heycar’s vehicle stock when searching for their next car. As well as the exact make and model they search, alternative purchases available from heycar will be flagged to buyers, breaking down the comparative costs for each option.
heycar only features used cars under eight years old and with less than 100,000 miles on the clock, available directly from selected dealers.
Mima Rybanska, co-founder of Car Guide, said: “Unsuspecting buyers can all too easily fall prey to dishonest dealers peddling used car scams when trying to navigate the used vehicle marketplace. By pairing with a trusted and quality site like heycar, which offers a warranty and a 10-day money back guarantee on every purchase, our customers can be confident that every option they consider has been vetted and deemed fit to drive.”
Tracy Woods, CMO of heycar, said: “Buying the perfect car shouldn’t be a worry, it should be an exciting experience. Every car at heycar meets strict quality criteria to ensure buyers can leave the stress behind. Car Guide shares this goal and our partnership will see them present data-based evidence alongside a selection of our most suitable vehicles to help buyers make a worry-free choice on their next car.”

In August 2019, heycar launched in the UK to shake up the used car market. Whether online, or at a heycar showroom, customers can step up their car buying game with a massive choice of cars and a host of benefits. With a 10-day money back guarantee and a warranty as standard, buying a car never felt so good. To further help customers drive with confidence, all the cars themselves are under eight years old and have less than 100,000 miles on the clock. heycar even offers a concierge service to help car owners take care of all that unwanted car-related admin. heycar began its journey in Germany in October 2017, with this success leading to the subsequent UK launch, and heycar Spain launch in December 2020. During this time, heycar UK also acquired the motoring consumer champion website HonestJohn.co.uk, to further help customers navigate the used car market. heycar is a brand owned by Mobility Trader Holding GmbH, whose shareholders include Volkswagen Group, Volkswagen Financial Services and Mercedes-Benz Mobility, Allianz and Renault Group and its subsidiary RCI Bank & Services.
