News : MG launches Approved Used Programme
MG Motor UK is launching its Approved Used Car Programme with a comprehensive range of benefits for customers, including a 130 point check on every car. Currently, MG is only extending the scheme to the MG6 (and not the TF), which are being offered by MG Dealers at prices starting from £9995.
Customers will also benefit from a complimentary seven-day drive away insurance and every car sold under the MG Approved Used Car Programme will have an HPI check and a certificate to verify the car’s mileage. Every car will have a full main dealer service history and a stamped service book will be handed to the customer on delivery of the car.
Clearly, with the glut of ex-Avis rental cars about to hit the market, MG is keen to manage residuals and also ensure that as many cars as possible remain within the Dealer Network. The Approved Scheme means that the company, which still struggles to sell meaningful amounts of new cars, will be able to compete more effectively in the nearly-new market – and, hopefully, generate more showroom foot-fall.
Richard Bourton, MG Motor UK’s Business and Used Car Sales Manager, said: ‘Initially most of the cars in the programme will be less than a year old and with a reasonable mileage. They will be great buys for people wanting to get into an MG6 and the cars will still have the balance of the original warranty, AA European Breakdown Assistance and the higher-spec models will have lifelong subscription to Traffic Master.’
