I want to buy a secondhand car but I don't know which sites to trust. Is heycar any good?

Do you know much about heycar? I've seen the ads but don't know which sites are the best to use.

Hi, heycar is an online-only, used car marketplace that launched in the UK in 2019. Although, it originally launched in Germany back in 2017. Unlike other used car sites, it only partners with selected dealers and only lists vehicles that meet its quality criteria. These restrictions mean the vehicles on heycar are all under eight years old, have less than 100,000 miles on the clock and come with a warranty. The goal of the site is to ensure consumers trust the dealers that they speak with, making the whole buying process less stressful. If you're looking for a quality used car, heycar is fairly straightforward to use and you won't have to worry about trawling through promoted ads, untrustworthy listings, vehicles that'll break down on the drive home etc.
