Frequently Asked Questions

We have compiled a list of commonly asked questions and answers below. If your enquiry is not covered by this sections then please submit an enquiry.

General

  • Does MyCarMatcher save me money?

    MyCarMatcher will not directly save you money, however this service will help you find the best car suited to your wants, needs and finances. If you wish to make a purely financial decision the comparison section will show you the buying and running costs of each car. However MyCarMatcher believes spending a little more sometimes (providing your budget allows) for a car that is more suited to your needs can be better value for money.

  • Why would I use MyCarMatcher when there are excellent online resources?

    MyCarMatcher has been carefully thought out to ensure the most important aspects of purchasing a new car are represented in a clear and concise way. For example, true running costs are often overlooked by car information sources in favour of economy. Our representation of running costs not only includes fuel but servicing, maintenance, repair and tyre costs. This is just one example of how we have made MyCarMatcher a comprehensive service aimed at assisting you with making an informed decision.

  • How can I contact you directly?

    Please send us an enquiry here or email us at info@mycarmatcher.com.

  • How are you confident you can find the right car for me?

    We take your requirements and objectively return all the relevant cars ranked in order of suitability (providing at least one ranking slider has been used). MyCarMatcher's aim is for you to save time finding which cars in the marketplace could suit you. Ultimately test driving one or more cars will enable you to make the best decision. Alternatively if you are not happy with how MyCarMatcher is ranking your matches you can proceed without choosing any ranking factors.

  • What cars do you represent?

    MyCarMatcher represents all new cars available for sale in the UK today by the major manufacturers.

  • Are you biased towards any specific manufacturer?

    MyCarMatcher is a 100% independent service.

Match

  • When I enter my requirements the search returns zero cars?

    If your search returns zero results it is because there are currently no new cars offered by the major manufacturers that meet your requirements. Try using less filters, the tailored bar will help guide your selections.

  • Why do the cars I expect not rank highly?

    If you select multiple preferences you may be surprised which car is most suited to you. This is because MyCarMatcher takes into account all of your preferences and find the best all rounder.

  • I don't understand all the terminology?

    If you are struggling with the terminology, MyCarMatcher has tried to help as much as possible by adding pop out bubbles.
