What does approved used mean? Is it just salesman terminology to confuse buyers and increase car prices or is there an actual difference between approved used cars and any other second-hand vehicle?

At John Roe we work hard to make the car-buying process simple, easy and fast so that you can focus on getting your new car on the road and enjoy driving it, safe in the knowledge you got a great deal. For that reason, it’s important to us that we don’t use confusing terms that our customers may not understand.

There is a real difference between an approved used car and a standard second-hand car at John Roe and that difference is the comprehensive checks and warranties provided by highly qualified and experienced technicians.

Our servicing departments in Scunthorpe, Hull and Grimsby are staffed by Toyota-qualified technicians who run every used car at John Roe through a comprehensive checklist to ensure each vehicle – Toyota and other makes – meet the highest safety and performance standards.

Despite that, we know that things sometimes go wrong with cars and, for most people, being without a car is not an option, but unexpected repair costs are not always easy to meet. For that reason, every John Roe approved used car comes with a 12-month Toyota comprehensive warranty, regardless of what car you bought from us – from Ford to Vauxhall, Honda to Hyundai or Fiat to Nissan.

We also supply each approved used car with 12 months AA Assistance to give you peace of mind. Find out more about what is and isn’t covered by the Toyota 12-month approved used warranty here.

All of our approved used cars are priced competitively to sell and come with a range of flexible, manageable and highly-competitive payment options with minimal paperwork, including our Best Rate Guaranteed promise.
