Vehicles are being made to a higher standard than ever, meaning that used cars are generally considered reliable. Buying an Approved Used car from a reputable dealer gives you more confidence, as these undergo rigorous checks before sale and often come with a warranty for your ongoing peace of mind.
A multi-point check is carried out on Approved Used models, which tests up to 120 items including mechanical parts and paintwork. Any issues that are found are then fixed. A history check is also typically run, which verifies the car’s ownership, roadworthiness, finance status, mileage and theft and crash history.
A range of finance options are available on used cars, many of which can be tailored to suit your budget. At Wilsons, we offer several packages including Hire Purchase and Personal Contract Purchase options. These are among the most popular. Contact us today to find out more.
When it comes to buying a used car, there are many options to choose from with a budget of £10,000 – from hatchbacks such as the Dacia Sandero and Vauxhall Corsa to family cars such as the Nissan Juke and Renault Scenic. You’ll comfortably find a model under five years old too.
With a more modest budget of £5,000, you still have plenty of choice, although larger vehicles are likely to have a few more miles behind them. At Wilsons, our selection of used cars under £5,000 includes the Fiat Panda, Citroen C4 Picasso and Vauxhall Astra.
Purchasing a used car from Wilsons has many benefits. Not only can you obtain a great vehicle for a reduced price, you also have the reassurance of knowing full checks have been carried out. Having been driven before, used cars have often had any teething issues that may arise in the first months of ownership remedied too.
A used car warranty often comes as standard with vehicles from reputable dealers, but these can vary in length. Consider an extended warranty if you’d like the continued peace of mind that this provides. These typically cover the same components and give you more protection should a fault arise in time.
Here at Wilsons, we’re happy to offer part-exchange for used cars. Our team will provide a fair valuation of your model based on its resale price, mileage and condition, and will be happy to accept it as a deposit towards your next car from us.

Here at Wilsons, these models are regularly available at a competitive price – simply search our used car stock to find your ideal car.
Although leasing is more common when buying a new car, it is possible to take out a leasing agreement on a used vehicle. To find out more about the finance packages we offer for used cars at Wilsons, get in touch with a member of our team today.
At Wilsons, we encourage you to test drive your shortlisted models before committing to a purchase. Test driving a used car means you can check that it feels right for you, as well as giving you an opportunity to identify any issues. Contact us today to book an appointment.
Used cars often come with a warranty provided by the dealership as standard. If you’re considering an extended warranty, however, you’ll need to think about what kind of cover you want, and how long you’d like it for. This will help you determine the best used car warranty for your needs.
