Advantages of ŠKODA used cars

Understandably, a lot of people are a little nervy when buying a used car. Here at Progress ŠKODA we are an APPROVED ŠKODA retailer, so this is sure to take the uncertainty out of buying a used ŠKODA. We offer a whole host of checks, warranties and the like, so you don’t have to worry about anything but choosing the right car for you.

Our APPROVED used vehicle programme includes the following:

Manufacturer and/or ŠKODA APPROVED warranty

If you’re buying a car that’s less than six years of age with less than 72,000 miles on the clock you’ll automatically receive a 12 month warranty. Older cars which have a maximum of 100,000 miles on the clock come with a minimum of 3 months’ warranty. Warranties will either be the remainder of Manufacturer's warranty, a ŠKODA APPROVED warranty or a combination of the two.

You can also extend the warranty period at the time of buying, giving you even more worry-free driving time.

A year’s free Manufacturer and/or ŠKODA APPROVED Assistance

Again, if your car has yet to reach its sixth birthday and has covered less than 72,000 miles, you’ll benefit from 12 months’ Manufacturer and/or ŠKODA APPROVED Assistance. If your car breaks down, one phone call will get you back on the move. Cover operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Terms and conditions apply. Please contact us for further details.

ŠKODA APPROVED multi-point vehicle inspection check

Just so you know your used ŠKODA is in good shape, our fully qualified technicians will give it a comprehensive workshop check before it’s delivered to you.

Vehicle status checks

We arrange for a third party to investigate your vehicle’s history and mileage, to make sure you don’t get any nasty surprises – like discovering there are outstanding finance payments owed on it or it’s been stolen or written off previously.

Please contact us if you would like further information.
