Quality Standard

The Squire Cars Quality Standard is a comprehensive set of inspection criteria that a vehicle must meet before we’re happy to sell it. This standard makes sure our vehicles are prepared to a best-in-class condition for their age and mileage.

As you’d expect from any used vehicle, there may be some small signs of wear and tear if you look closely. This could include very light scratches or some tyre wear, but you won’t find noticeable dents.

Here are a few of the features demanded by our Quality Standard, to make sure you’re getting the quality you expect with every Squire Cars vehicle.

What to expect from your Squire Cars vehicle

  • A minimum 3 Months warranty, first month covers everything except cosmetic and month 2/3 covers engine and gearbox
  • Minor wear in line with the age of the vehicle
  • No MOT due within six months
  • No service due within three months or 2,000 miles
  • No warning lights
  • Tyres will have a minimum of 2.5mm across the central ¾ of the tyre
