Kia’s Approved Used Car Programe available on cars at Roadside (Garages) Limited Iin Coleraine has received yet another top accolade for its innovative approach to used cars. Since its launch in 2010 the programme has sold over 50,000 used cars through its network of 144 Approved Used dealers.

Parkers.co.uk has voted for the programme in their annual New Car Awards – aimed at bringing the best advice and information to customers wanting to buy a car.

Christofer Lloyd, Finance Editor at Parkers.co.uk commented, ‘Simply put, this is the manufacturer with the best scheme to find you an approved used car. All approved used Kia’s come with seven years’ warranty, plus a 60-day exchange policy and seven days’ free insurance.

You also get 12 months’ UK and European breakdown cover and Kia will pay up to £500 to get your car through its MOT. This scheme applies to models under 18 months/18,000 miles old. This is why this was such a compelling prospect and an award winner’.

Ian Lamont, Sales Manager for Roadside (Garages) Limited says: “We are extremely proud to be a part of the Kia group and this award means a lot to us at Roadside - it’s fantastic to see that the Kia Approved Used Car Programe is being recognised across the industry!”

David McCluskey, National Used Vehicle Sales and Remarketing Manger commented ‘Having the best new car warranty in the business wasn’t enough for us – we wanted to give used car buyers just the same security and peace of mind – winning this award proves that we consistently deliver on that promise’.

Now well into its eighth year the Approved Used Car Programe offers consumers in and around the Coleraine area the peace of mind of Kia’s seven-year warranty in a used car. Each car that is sold through a Kia Used Approved dealer has the warranty topped back up to seven years, as long as the car is under 18 months and 18,000 miles. Each car goes through an extensive 88 point check to ensure that it’s ‘as good as new’ before being put on sale.

Keith Adams, Editor at Parkers.co.uk said, ‘The Kia Approved Used scheme is literally head-and-shoulders above the opposition in terms of warranty length and scope. A clear-cut winner for Parkers’ engaged used car buyers.’
