RAC Cars launched to provide peace of mind for used car buyers
The site currently has 60,000 vehicles and is expected to grow to 120,000 vehicles. All come with a minimum of 3 months’ warranty, 2 months’ RAC Rescue and 1 five-day drive-away insurance plan. In addition, all RAC Cars customers can also benefit from a 40% discount on vehicle based annual breakdown cover after their initial two months cover is up.
The site will not include any private sales, traders or independent dealers that do not adhere to 3-2-1 Go! and all vehicles will come from franchised or RAC approved dealers. In addition, the majority of the stock will be between six months and five years old, and will have been well-maintained with an excellent service history.
A growing number of the cars on the site will be supplied through RAC approved dealers who comply with the 80-point RAC BuySure preparation standard. This includes a minimum of three months’ RAC warranty, three months’ RAC breakdown cover and use of the RAC Accident Care service.
RAC Cars chairman Rupert Keane said: ‘The used car consumer finds the acquisition process fraught with anxiety and mistrust so the RAC’s decision to bring its name and skills to improve this experience is excellent news for anyone looking for reassurance when buying their next used car. That’s why we are positioning RAC Cars as “the safer way to buy a used car” on our website.’
