There are many, many people from all four corners of this green and pleasant land that are big fans of Fiat and Chrysler respectively and wish to treat themselves to a ‘new’ second hand car from their favourite manufacturer. The problem, as ever, is that buying second, or even third hand, is a minefield ripe for exploitation, disappointment and worse. So when Fiat Chrysler Automobiles UK sent news across to MotorMartin Towers regarding a scheme they had just launched, there was a sense that they may well have just solved a potential problem area for their customers.
So without further ado, and with much fanfare, MotorMartin is able to share with you that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles UK has just launched an all new comprehensive range of approved used vehicle programmes, for each of its UK car and van brands. Excellent.
Well known for its popular ranges of new cars and commercial vehicles, FCA UK is now also committed to offering customers the very best in used vehicles, offering quality cars and vans, peace of mind, full warranties, and competitive finance offers.
It’s worth noting however that the Fiat, Abarth and Fiat Professional schemes will be known as ‘Found Approved and Used’, while the Jeep and Alfa Romeo’s will be covered by the ‘Selected For You’ programme.
“The best way to buy a used car or commercial vehicle is through a manufacturers’ approved programme,” shared Tristan Downs, Remarketing Manager with MotorMartin . “And that is exactly what we are offering here.”
“We know that trust and transparency are really important for today’s car buyers, and that customers expect all the benefits of buying a used car from a franchised dealer. That’s why we have introduced a number of excellent benefits to give customers far greater peace of mind.”
The benefits, as standard on every used car, include:
A multi-point inspection
Copy of 30-day / 1000 mile exchange plan
Ownership Assurance certificate
Competitive finance offers
12-month branded approved warranty
Full interior and exterior valet
12-month vehicle breakdown cover
Improved stock locator for greater choice of vehicles and consistent quality standards
Additionally, FCA UK stated to MotorMartin that they have also introduced a dedicated used vehicle area team to assist and support dealers in the field. This will provide participating dealers with access to hands on practical advice and guidance on how to develop and grow their used car business.
“I’m delighted with these new used vehicle programmes,” said Francis Bleasdale, Fleet and Remarketing Director, to MotorMartin. “FCA UK is renowned for its excellent range of new cars and vans, and now we are able to offer consumers a great choice of used vehicles through a high quality approved programme, backed up with comprehensive warranties and the latest finance offers. It’s an excellent proposition for our customers.”
And you can’t say fairer than that.
