How to Find a Reliable Used Audi

Oct 22, 2007
Audis are known for being cars of exceptional quality with regards to their having the most advanced technology, durability and finish. Because of this, buying a used Audi can be a sensible proposition, particularly when the vehicle has previously had its bodywork, engine, interior and electrics rigorously checked, has previously passed detailed road tests, and has a detailed warranty. All of these are features of the Approved Used Audi car package, which is offered by official dealerships. The Audi range includes the popular all-road 4x4, the A4 Cabriolet, and the A2, with its attractive design, agile handling and low fuel consumption.

Vehicle Provenance

A vehicle provenance check demonstrates that a vehicle is as described, and should include a certification of the following items:

The vehicle's full specification
The date the car was registered
Assurance that the car has not be used as part of a finance agreement
A guarantee that the car has not been stolen
An indication that the car does not have a condition (write off) record
Evidence that the vehicle has not had a plate change

Other types of checks

You should look for a provider who offers a full and long-lasting warranty check and vehicle mileage checks, provided by Vehicle Mileage Check Limited, which may even include contacting previous owners and the DVLA. Your used car supplier should also have some sort of exchange plan in place.

Where to look for used Audis

If you look online, you should be able to find lists of Audis that meet your criteria, and in a reasonably proximate geographic location.

Then you can arrange to visit a dealer or the owner directly. If you buy from a dealer, you may have access to a parts or bodyworks service, which should enable you to get a good deal on significant replacement parts. Buying from a dealership also gives you the security of having relevant facts checked and corroborated, and you'll know who to contact in the unlikely event that something goes wrong. Audi dealerships will also often have maintenance staff who have been trained by the manufacturers themselves, helping to maintain the value of your car at the point of resale and keep the warranty up to date. And if you're not sure when your car will need to have a check, the 'service indicator' button on your car's dashboard will tell you when your next appointment is due.

Approved Used Audis also offer up to a year's free servicing and roadside assistance for a limited duration. Finance arrangements offered by the manufacturers themselves make it possible to own 'Vorsprung durch Technik' for as little as £329 per month.
