Now Tesco want you to buy your next car from them
Tesco is fast becoming the Google of groceries; after making their money doing one thing well, they've expanded into places a draft couldn't reach. Their latest branded jaunt is Tesco Cars - an "online showroom [that] gives you exclusive access to thousands of quality used cars before they enter the market."
According to industry news sources, Tesco recently bought a stake in online retailer Carsite and is using using their infrastructure for the new service. Meanwhile Carsite has disappeared - their website is "currently undergoing maintenance" and has been for some time.
Tesco Cars is hoping to offer second-hand cars at 20% less than forecourt sales; all vehicles sold on the site will have undergone independent inspections by the RAC and HPI Check, a company that checks out the ownership histories of vehicles.
Of course, if you are wanting to buy a used motor from a supermarket, don't go clicking on TescoCars.co.uk - being big doesn't always mean being quick.
