When you buy a ŠKODA Approved used car, you can be sure of complete peace of mind. Every used car from our approved used car scheme has been selected carefully, is under 5 years old with less than 120,000 km and undergoes a series of stringent checks.

Our commitment to quality doesn’t end when you purchase your car. All ŠKODA approved used cars are provided with a two year warranty cover – one of the most comprehensive warranties available. So you’re safe in the knowledge that should the unexpected happened in the future, the investment you’ve made in your car is protected. For total peace of mind, you can extend your warranty to provide reassurance for an even longer period.

Every ŠKODA approved used car includes 24 months free roadside assistance cover. In the unlikely event of a breakdown, you’ll find help at hand, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The benefits include:

  • Home and roadside assistance anywhere in Ireland or the UK
  • Vehicle recovery to a ŠKODA retailer
  • Replacement vehicle or
  • Overnight accommodation or
  • Refund on alternative transport expenses

Before a car becomes a ŠKODA approved used car, it must pass over 100 individual checks. Our factory trained technicians conduct a thorough inspection both inside and out, noting and resolving any defects that may appear. The inspection covers a wide range of checks from mechanical, electrical, under bonnet, vehicle underside, bodywork as well as wheel/tyres checks and ends with a full road test. You will receive a details written report which you can examine.

Following the multi-point check, any faults reported will be rectified by your ŠKODA dealer before it becomes an approved used car. Any repair or maintenance work will be performed by ŠKODA trained technicians only using ŠKODA original parts. Both inside and out, every ŠKODA approved used car is then completely refreshed to a high standard.

ŠKODA retailers know how important peace of mind is. By taking advantage of the specialist services, your retailer is able to check every approved used car against the large information databases that exist for your protection. This way, we get to know the full history of a vehicle and can tell you whether it has been stolen, involved in an accident or has any outstanding finance.

When you take delivery of your ŠKODA approved used car you can rest assured that your vehicle has been fully serviced, if a service was due within three months or 5,000 kms. Our ŠKODA trained technicians receive up-to-date information from the factory and use current diagnostic and repair equipment. Not only that, our technicians use ŠKODA original parts which include a full two year warranty.

Regardless of how confident we are, a test drive is always the most persuasive sales argument. That’s why every ŠKODA used car is ready and prepared for a test drive, so that you can experience it for yourself.

Part of buying a new car often involves selling your current vehicle. To make life easy, our ŠKODA retailers will evaluate your car and provide you with a fair trade-in offer.

To demonstrate our confidence in the vehicles we sell, we undertake to replace your vehicle with one of a similar value (within 30 days or 1,000 kilometres from date of delivery), should an irreparable fault occur. Terms and conditions apply and your ŠKODA retailer will be pleased to supply further details.

Helping you get your ŠKODA used car the easiest and most beneficial way – that is our aim at ŠKODA Finance. Please talk to your ŠKODA retailer about our personal or business finance options or our latest finance offers.
