Manufacturer award 2013
The judges felt that Vauxhall offered everything they were looking for, starting with its impressive model range. The Corsa, Astra, Insignia and Zafira sell in huge numbers as new cars, which means there are loads of used examples around. They're great value new, with all the safety and technology of rivals. They also depreciate quickly, which is just what used buyers want.
Having a good product is important, but so is accessibility and aftersales service. Vauxhall's Network Q approved-used scheme is one of the oldest in the industry and there are more than 350 retailers in the UK. Finding your nearest outlet and more than 10,000 vehicles for sale is easily done online, where you can also check Vauxhall's comprehensive approved-used package.
All used Vauxhalls sold through Network Q come complete with a multi-point check, a comprehensive history check plus a five-day drive-away insurance policy to get you on the road. Also included is a 30-day exchange policy allowing you to swap your car for one of equal value if there's an electrical or mechanical fault that cannot be fixed. Peace of mind can extend beyond those 30 days as well, if you protect yourself against big bills for up to 60 months with a Network Q car warranty.
This nationwide presence, plus a huge, affordable stock of vehicles and a comprehensive insurance package, are what make Vauxhall a worthy winner.
