Does my car come with a warranty?
Yes, all of our cars come with the minimum of a six month RAC warranty which can be extended to either one, two or three years for a competitive extra fee, please ask one of our team for details.
Is there an admin fee?
No there are no hidden extras at South Downs Car Sales, our cars are priced very competitively with no extra hidden fees and a full six month warranty as a minimum.
Does the Car come Serviced and MOT’d?
How can I pay?
You pay a small holding fee as a deposit, the balance is then paid shortly before you pick the car up by bank transfer.
Road fund licence
Road tax can no longer be carried between vehicles once sold. This means that you will always need to tax your new vehicle. We can either set this up for you or you may choose to do this yourself when you collect the car giving you the option to pay by monthly direct debit.
Do you offer part exchange?
Yes, any of our team are happy to provide a valuation of your existing vehicle. Please bring your paperwork for the vehicle with you as this really helps us to establish a firm valuation. Some of our customers choose to sell their car themselves, but others either part exchange their car with us or sell it to a third party. Whatever happens our friendly team will advise you of the options available so that you can choose the most suitable option for you.
Do I need an appointment?
All of the vehicles are kept here on site in Wivelsfield so pop in anytime Monday to Saturday, the only day that we are closed is Sunday. Any cars that aren’t here on site are clearly detailed by appointment only.
Can I take a test drive?
Yes, please bring your driving licence and national insurance number with you, this allows us to check that you have a current licence without a ban. Your test drive will allow you to take the car up to 50 – 60 mph giving you a true reflection of how the car drives.
Do you negotiate on price?
Everything is already priced incredibly competitively as everything is online, bear in mind that our price includes the 6 month warranty and no hidden/extra admin fees.
Are your cars HPI checked?
Yes, this ensures that the car has not been an insurance loss, it has no outstanding finance from the previous owner and that it has never been stolen.
Do you offer work experience?
Yes, we're always happy to speak to any young adults about the possibility of work experience at South Downs Car Sales. Find out more on our Work Experience page.
