Wilsons RAC Guarantee

We pride ourselves on providing you with quality cars. All of the used cars sold by Wilsons undergo a thorough RAC vehicle inspection to guarantee that your new car will meet a widely recognised professional standard. This means that you can drive away with peace of mind as well as a new car. It is important to remember that the chance of a breakdown increases as your vehicle gets older. Therefore, taking preventative measures could save you money in the long run.

  • Catalytic Converter and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
  • Turbo (Factory Fitted)
  • Air Conditioning / Climate Control (Factory Fitted)
  • In-Car Entertainment

Wilsons RAC Guarantee breakdown

Wilsons are picky about the cars we allow onto our forecourt

In a recent survey with 4,000 car owners, three quarters of those that had purchased a car in the past two years chose to buy a used car*. Most people have had a bad experience with a used car or at least know someone that has had a bad experience with a used car.

Wilsons ensure that all of our used cars are checked and vetted before they arrive on our forecourt or leave with a customer at the wheel.

Protect yourself with Wilsons RAC Platinum Warranty

We understand that buying a car is a big financial commitment and you want to know, as much as possible, that you have invested your hard-earned money in a dependable vehicle.

However, even the most reliable of vehicles can let you down sometimes and potentially cost a fortune to repair. What if one morning your car refuses to start, or it breaks down on the way to work? It's always worth thinking ahead because a car that's in perfect working order now will be more likely to break down as it ages.

Wilsons offers a RAC Platinum Warranty for every used car that we sell which covers all mechanical and electrical components for vehicles of any age and any mileage. The RAC Warranty is designed to help you with the cost of any repairs including replacement parts, labour and VAT.

It includes:

  • ​Parts, labour and VAT
  • A national repair network
  • Available options of 1 - 4 years of cover
  • Transference with vehicle on resale
  • Fast claims payments

  • Comprehensive parts cover

Wilsons Guarantee

We guarantee that every car purchased from Wilsons comes with:

  • 82 Point Vehicle Preparation Standard
  • A minimum of 3 months Warranty
  • RAC Accident Care
  • Car Data Check to ensure the vehicle you are buying isn't stolen, written off or has outstanding finance

Buy with confidence

We recognise that when you are looking to buy a used vehicle you want to have peace of mind that there is someone to turn to if you have a problem with the car or the seller and that the car is under warranty with third party support.

Our RAC guarantee can provide you with confidence that the car you're buying is safe both mechanically and in terms of history and you will have confidence in who you are buying from.
