BUYING Nearly new cars - what are the options

BUYING Nearly new cars - what are the options


Pre-Reg simply means "pre-registered". Because of the way the car industry works, many cars are first registered with a dealer rather than an actual buyer.

If being the second registered keeper of a vehicle does not bother you, then snapping up a pre-reg car should ensure you get a hefty discount over the list price of a model ordered direct from the factory.

Pre-registered cars are discounted depending on the popularity of the model and the time of year. Pre-registered cars should have no more than 200 'delivery' miles on the clock and should be no more than six months old.

Buying a pre-registered car  is a great option if you'd like to get behind the wheel of a new car but appreciate a cracking bargain!


Snapping up an ex-demonstrator model can also represent great value. These cars are purchased from manufacturers with high specs to tempt test drivers with extra features. If you are happy with the idea of your next car having been used for a few test drives, ex-demonstrators can be high-spec and heavily discounted option and although they are likely to have more miles on the clock than pre-reg's they still barely get beyond "running in".


Both of these types of nearly new cars still benefit from the vast majority of the manufacturer's warranty and you have the peace of mind of buying from Gilders. So whether you are considering a pre-reg or ex-demo, the Gilder Group will ensure the car is in excellent condition, fully serviced, valeted and still comes with that new car smell! Enquire at any one of our dealerships in Chesterfield, Rotherham or Sheffield or search on our specific pages on the website under the USED tab.
