Rigorous Electrical and Mechanical Testing
Trained technicians conduct a rigorous multi-point check of every vehicle – assessing every major electrical & mechanical component. Only once this quality control process has been completed is a vehicle displayed on one of our forecourts. As part of this process we check the following:
