Found 7th Mar 2012
Not for everyone, including myself, but the days of a pre-reg Ford KA for £5k are long gone. So if you need a brand spanking new 'super'mini with a nice long warranty then this could be for you.

If you know your cars and are comfortable buying second hand, well what are you even looking at this for?


HYUNDAI I10 HATCHBACK 1.0 Blue 5dr

IMMEDIATE DELIVERY!! This car is pre-registered (March 2011) with delivery mileage only. Available in Electric Red solid paint with Black cloth interior. We include 6 months Road Tax as standard. Ref:JBH

Price: £ 6,795.00

Looks like a great deal but standby for all the 'used BM for the same money' comments. Car threads bring out the worst in HUKD!
Prefer a 20 year old Porsche for same money.
Good deal..Grandpa will love this..
Pre-registered March 2011? It's a year old?
60mpg has got to be good and the price is great for a new car! Not enough boot space for me as I have to have room for my old ma's wheelchair...so for around the same price I'll be looking for an ex-mobility C-Max.

That's what pre-registered means, yes.

Yes. All new cars are only new because they've been registered. Alot of them have been sat in a car park for goodness knows how long waiting for someone to buy them.
We have one. Great little cars, £30 road tax, 55mpg. Boot is tiny though so no good if you have lots of stuff or need it as your main family car. Excellent value though with 5 years warranty.

If you contact a Hyundai dealer you may be able to get a similar price as we had a leaflet through from our dealer advertising new i10's from £6,995.

Pre-registered cars are usually sold within a short period of being registered. They are registered by a dealership in order to meet their sales targets (effectively they sell themselves the car from the manufacturer) as they then get a volume bonus for all of the vehicles they have sold.

I would have some questions about these seeing as they have been registered for a year already; how long is the warranty for - as in the manufacturers eyes the car has already used 1 year of this. Secondly, is the warranty actually valid? Vehicles must be serviced in line with manufacturer specifications in order for the manufacturer warranty to be valid. If the car is due a service after 12 months or x miles, then these will need to be serviced (and the service book stamped) in order for the warranty to remain valid.

This is not a new car, it is a 1 year old second hand car, which just has not been driven since being purchased by the dealership.

Well that's simply not true. What do you think they did before car registrations were coming out twice yearly? Pre-registering has been going on to my knowledge since the early 90's and I'm sure long before that as well.

I'm sure someone like you would have MANY questions, and I'm sure Drive The Deal will have great pleasure in answering them for you.

Sorry if I'm being short, but I really don't understand how people still don't understand the in's and out's of pre-registering cars. Do your own homework and you won't get burned.
Does anyone know if the Aston Martin deal is still avaiable?
I can't decide between the two...

I'm sorry - which part of what I have said is not true? Your correct, for years dealerships have been pre-registering cars. But nothing I have said is untrue - I used to work for a Nissan dealership so have "done my homework". Once a car has been registered it starts to age, the manufacturer doesn't pre-register vehicles, dealerships i.e Evans Halshaw do, Evans Halshaw own the car, and then sell it as 2nd hand, in the eyes of both the DVLA and the manufacturer whoever buys these will be the 2nd owner, hence why there are no manufacturer promotions on pre-registered cars, only dealer promotions. Also, the V5 will show the date of 1st registration for all of these to be March 2011, and the new owner as the 2nd owner.
