Audi Approved used car scheme

Every manufacturer has a used approved scheme to tempt buyers, but what do they all offer and how do they compare? We'll show you in this handy guide...

Generally, the Audi Approved used scheme offers a 12 months used car warranty along with 12 months of UK and European travel breakdown cover. However, they have started to offer long 24 month warranty and breakdown cover for limited periods of time during promotional periods if you buy an approved used Audi with finance. This is similar to Skoda, and is likely to be implemented across other Volkswagen group brands, so it's worth looking out for if you happen to be buying a pre-owned car using finance.

Other than that, the scheme itself matches what many competitors offer, although it cannot match BMW Approved for the maximum age of cars it covers, nor the mileage limit.
