Here is the Charles Hurst USED CAR Buyer’s Guide

Buying a used car can save you lots of cash compared to buying brand new. Whether you’re after a cheap runaround or a dream machine you’ve lots of choice on the second-hand market.

Buying a used car can be a daunting prospect but it doesn’t have to be. You can pick a car up for a few hundred quid but unless you’re a competent mechanic buying something more than 10 years old is just asking for trouble. A service history is essential and fewer owners the better!

You can be assured of a quality used car at a price you can afford at Charles Hurst. Our used car selection covers all the leading motoring brands we have on site AND mentioned in our New Car section, plus a range of additional manufacturers. We even have a dedicated First Time Buyers showroom based on the Boucher Road which has all stock priced at £5,999 or less.
