RAC Warranty

Buying a used car can become a complicated experience, and many people feel vulnerable or unsure of the right questions to ask. This can often lead to customers feeling rushed and pressured into buying a vehicle, without going through the necessary checks and inspections.

Having a car that has been checked for quality, safety, and legal, by a RAC Dealer, takes away these problems before you’ve even looked at it.

The RAC brand is one of the most trusted brands in the UK with an excellent reputation for high quality and honesty, and whilst there are several other scheme providers, the RAC stood head and shoulders above the rest.

What do Motorists get from a RAC Dealer?

  • Confidence that the car is of the highest quality.
  • A confirmation that the vehicle has undergone, and passed a RAC Dealer Vehicle PDI Check.
  • A RAC Car Passport Certificate (vehicle history check)
  • 3 Months RAC Warranty (extendable).
  • 12 Months RAC Roadside and National Recovery.

Our experience tells us that customers who have a car checked in this way feel safer, less stressed, and are far happier that everything is in order. Ideal Web Cars and all RAC Dealers are committed to providing the very best quality cars and service, to ensure the customer receives a great vehicle with a fantastic buying experience.
