Suzuki launches approved used car programme

Suzuki Ignis

Suzuki GB launched a new and updated approved used car programme in a bid to provide a greater breadth of choice to its customers.

The Japanese brand said the programme provides a ‘clearer’ and ‘more structured’ process in helping customers find their car of choice and will offer a 14-day no quibble exchange for those who feel their purchase does not suit their needs.

Additionally, and until the end of March, a £150 contribution (including VAT) towards the next service is also included if due after three months of the sale date.

Fixed price servicing plans are also available for Suzuki Used cars.

Suzuki said customers browsing vehicles on its Suzuki Used Car locator were "assured that the vehicle is clearly photographed, fully warranted and has gone through a comprehensive list of pre-delivery checks".

A minimum 12 months warranty with UK & European roadside assistance, MOT protection cover, multi-point check of all major mechanical and electrical components and confirmation that the car has no outstanding finance nor suffered significant accident damage, are among the guarantees.

Suzuki said vehicles are serviced in line with manufacturer schedules and next service completed (when due, within three months of the sale date) with finance options available and a maximum age 8 years, 70,000 miles at outset.

A number of franchised car retailers have increased their representation of Suzuki GB in recent weeks.

Read Motor Group said it expects to drive beyond a 2022 turnover target of over £100m after it opened the doors to a new Suzuki GB and MG Motor UK dealership site in Grimsby.

Desira Group also moved its Suzuki Norwich dealership into a new showroom as it drives the creation of multi-brand car retail sites.

Plus, with the Consumer Duty soon to be introduced, no automotive manager can afford to relax - or not read our new special report.

The potential risks from failure are substantial.
