Other Car Checks VS Car Guide

Unlike others, we help you predict your car’s future.

There are many trusted household names synonymous with car checks in the UK. While their paid reports offer valuable information about a vehicle’s history, there’s one thing that they can’t do. Predict what may go wrong with a vehicle.

Car Guide offer everything included in other checks, and then some. Our AI-powered platform scours 900 million data points, uncovering potential running costs, parts needing replacement, and future MOT failures. So you’re empowered to make the most informed decision as a buyer – not just for today, but for tomorrow, too.
