Record year for Network Q

VAUXHALL'S Network Q operation has reported a record year in 2003, with the number of secondhand vehicles sold up by 8,000 units to 130,730.

Selling stars were the Vauxhall Zafira, which was up by 100% and Corsa and Astra, both of which saw second-hand sales leap by 15%. The Zafira saw a huge increase in success on the Network Q forecourts due to its age: the oldest cars are three to four years old and are coming to the end of their first-owner lifecycles. According to Vauxhall, the vast majority of cars sold through Network Q are under three years old.

AndyRobson, in charge of the Network Q operation, put the success down to a number of factors, including buyer peace of mind, retailer service and the increasing use of the internet as a way to buy – a key weapon in Network Q's strategy.
