What is a Pre-Registered Car?

Our stock of pre-registered cars are cars that we have registered to Rockar to apply the savings so that we can pass them on to you! These cars are practically brand new, they only have Rockar as a previous owner, and have barely any miles on them. By listing these cars as pre-registered, it just means you can get these cars at an incredible price!

Because these cars are newly registered, they will still have at least 2 years warranty, sometimes maybe more. And the best thing is, they are ready immediately! These cars are available for speedy home delivery or 24-hour click & collect, they are ready and waiting for their new home.

What is an Approved Used Car?

Leave the uncertainty behind when you choose an Approved Used Jaguar Land Rover. Your new vehicle is prepared to the highest standards with the seven-point customer promise. Every Approved Used vehicle includes: One-year Approved Warranty, one-year roadside assistance, a rigorous 165 multi-point testing inspection, a certified mileage check, plus we make sure the service history is fully up to date. All vehicles are reconditioned by trained technicians using the latest technology and genuine parts. Buy yours online with Rockar for the best price, along with full peace of mind that your vehicle is prepared to the highest standard.

What is a New Car?

Our stock of new cars are brand sparkling new cars. They have never been driven, have no previous owners, and are in original manufacturer condition. Buying your car this way, means your car will 100% brand new. However, please remember the lead times on these vehicles may be longer, especially if you are using our YouBuild option, which allows you to build your unique vehicle exactly how you want it. Lead times on brand new cars tend to be around 14 weeks.
