Pre registered cars

As a rule I've always bought brand new cars on HP.

Ours is now getting on a bit and due for a change so when I was passing I dropped into the dealers to see what the options were.

They mentioned that they had some pre registered cars in the spec I was looking at. They worked out considerably cheaper then a spanking new car.

What are the cons of buying a pre reg car?

Your warranty start date is the date of first registration, therefore if say it was registered 6 months prior you effectively have 6 months less warranty. The service interval also starts on date of first registration therefore a service (assuming it's annual intervals) will be due within 6 months regardless of the mileage .

OK, well that isn't such a big deal really is it?
I do a very very very low milage (seriously, my car is 5 years old and only has 15,000 miles on it) so it always gets serviced by time rather than miles.
I tend to buy a service package anyway.
