Low mileage, one owner used cars

When buying a used car there are quite a few tips to help you get the right vehicle and benefits if you try to purchase one owner, low mileage used cars with service history.Most Manchester car dealers will have a selection of used cars for sale offering different packages included in the sale price. Firstly decide on the type of used car that suits you and your family, decide on your budget, ask questions such as insurance group of the vehicle, how much is the road tax, what warranty is given with the car, does it have a service history and a current mot, how many owners has the vehicle had, what sort of fuel consumption can I expect to get from the vehicle, servicing costs and any other questions that may come into your head when you go to purchase your used car.

Where possible try and buy from a garage local to your area who you know have been there for some time.Ask people you know that have bought used cars from that garage have they been happy with their purchase, if there have been problems with the vehicle did the garage put the problem right, asking all these questions will steer you in the right direction and give you peace of mind when purchasing your used car.

Again where possible try and buy your used car from a garage that is a member of the Trading Standards Fair Play Charter which demonstrates their commitment to Fair and Honest Trading.Most Manchester car dealers will no doubt be able to offer finance to their customers ask the A P R you will be paying and check they are putting you with a finance company you feel comfortable with.

The benefits of buying a One Owner low mileage used car with service history are that you know the vehicle has had the maintenance it requires to keep the car in good condition and reducing the possibility of problems in the future.All vehicles require regular servicing and checking to keep them in good working order.

The most important thing to keep your engine in good working order is regular oil changes to help reduce wear on engine components and keep your engine running efficiently, check tyre pressures weekly as over or under inflated tyres can reduce the life of the tyres and can also effect fuel consumption,check brake pads on each service to avoid allowing them to get to low and causing damage to the brake discs, check wiper blades as worn blades can scratch your windscreen, check cambelt and tensioner condition and replace as manufactures recommendation as a snapped cambelt can cause untold damage and  result in a very expensive garage bill.

Keeping your car well serviced / maintained will also help to keep up your resale value when disposing of your vehicle.

We offer all the usual dealer facilities such as finance, warranty and part exchange.
We also have our own workshop facilities here at the garage and can take care of all aspects of servicing and repairs and Mot's.

Here are a few things it is important to check on you used car during the summer months to keep it running safely and reliably:

Coolant/anti freeze
The antifreeze in your used cars cooling system is not just to stop it freezing in the winter it also acts as a coolant to keep you engine running at the correct temperature during the summer.The level should be checked around once every two weeks and the strength checked around twice a year (winter and summer).

Your tyres will possibly have worn more over the winter and should be checked for any wear or cracks.If you check the tyre pressures around once every two weeks you can visually inspect them for any wear at the same time.

Engine oil
Your used car wont use any more or less oil during the winter or summer but it is very important to check your oil level once every two weeks to keep your engine lubricated and running smoothly.

Air conditioning
If your used car has air conditioning it is a good idea to have it serviced or checked that it is working correctly and operating at the correct temperature.As it wont have been used over the winter much you can get a build up of bacteria in the system which can result in health issues,so again it may need to be treated with an antibacterial spray to avoid or remedy this issue.Also your used car will be fitted with a pollen filter which will need to be replace approx once a year.
