Jaguar ‘Approved’ has been named as Car Dealer’s ‘Best Manufacturer Used Car Scheme of the Year’, taking the number one spot from the previous three-time winner, Kia.  Designed as the most comprehensive suite of ‘peace of mind’ features for its customers, Car Dealer judges were most impressed with Approved’s rigorous 165-point mechanical check – more than any other manufacturer. Car Dealer judges also highlighted the F-TYPE for delivering great value, awarding it the ‘Used Sports Car of the Year’ award.

All Jaguar Approved vehicles include a two-year unlimited mileage Approved Warranty, which covers models up to five years old with less than 100,000 miles at the time of purchase. There is no limit to the amount of claims that can be made, and each claim is only capped by the purchase price of the car. For absolute on-road confidence, all Approved models also come with two years’ 24/7 UK and Europe Roadside Assistance.

The comprehensive scheme also includes:-

  • Independent Mileage and History check
  • Road Test
  • Part Exchange Service
  • MOT Test Warranty
  • 30 day/1000-mile conditional vehicle exchange agreement
  • Complimentary seven-day drive away Insurance

Rebecca Chaplin, Editor of Car Dealer Magazine said“Jaguar has worked hard to ensure that buyers of its Approved Used cars receive the same levels of quality and service as they would when buying new from the brand. So much about Jaguar’s Approved Used offering is designed to provide reassurance and peace of mind to buyers and the Used Car Awards judges were hugely impressed with the scheme. Dealers too gave us lots of positive feedback and comments. Congratulations to Jaguar for its Approved Used scheme.''

Buyers can browse the Approved vehicles available through where they’ll also be able to find the newly crowned Used Car Awards winner; the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Awards host and compere, Mike Brewer, said“This has been an award won by Kia for the last three years, but tonight’s winner has been awarded for its vigorous 165-point check on its used cars – more than any other manufacturer.  With strong and desirable products, appealing offers for customers and the added benefit of a two-year approved warranty and 24 months of roadside assistance – its dealers had plenty of praise to offer our winner tonight”.

Car Dealer judges also voted the F-TYPE as the Best Used Sports Car. From day one, the F-TYPE was engineered to provide outstanding agility and response without compromising the day-to-day usability and ride comfort expected from all Jaguar cars. The stiff, light aluminium bodystructure and all-round aluminium double wishbone suspension are fundamental to delivering on the promise of the F-TYPE’s ultimate sports car styling.
