R & W Motor Company

Warranty and Aftercare

We carefully select all of our cars

Each car undergoes a 82 point check, any mechanical or electrical defects are rectified prior to sale. These are divided between 4 areas:

Bodywork and structure

This includes any accident damage, the condition of the bodywork panels, originality and vehicle identity (vehicle identification numbers etc.)

Mechanical condition

An assessment of mechanical condition and service state. Over a decade of specialist knowledge means there's little we have not seen in the past.

Diagnostic checks

We interrogate the electronic control units of our cars. This allows us to verify mileage, previous incidents and the manner in which a car has been driven.

Paper checks

We run HPI checks for issues such as outstanding finance, insurance total loss claims, vehicle theft, identity cloning, previous registration numbers and so on.


Prior to offering cars for sale we correct any cosmetic defects so that they are in a condition consistent with age, mileage and price. We are conscious that people travel a long way to see our stock and in many cases brought unseen over the phone. We want you to be delighted when you see the vehicle. If a service or Mot falls due in the next 3 months we will undertake this prior to your collection of the car from us.

For 3 months or 3,000 miles after purchase we will correct any faults that arise with the engine and gearbox regardless of whether or not they were present when you bought the car. We hope this provides the assurance that you have bought a good car with nothing swept under the carpet or hidden from you.

In addition to this we provide the popular option of a 12 month or 36 month independent Fully comprehensive cover against Engine, Gearbox, Electrical faults and Failed Mechanical Items. This covers all the usual concerns a buyer might have when purchasing a car.

The policy is underwritten by Autoprotect who are regulated by the Motor Industry code of practice. This warranty can be used at your convenience at a garage local to you.

Our customers can also benefit from 9 months interest free option when buying a Autoprotect warranty.

We have been around for a long time and hope to be here for many years to come. It is with great pride that we have never needed to employ the services of a legal expert in relation to a car we have sold. If someone has a problem, it concerns us and we resolve it personally. There are no service advisors to wade through, so any issues you face are dealt with directly by the people you meet when making your purchase.
