Advice about used 4x4s

Used 4x4 car FAQs

As with any used car purchase, the main things to consider when you’re looking to buy a used 4x4 is whether or not the car’s service history is intact, and if everything is running as it should be. If that’s the case, then you should also consider just how much off-road capability you’d ideally like from your used 4x4. Many SUVs come with four-wheel-drive, but if you want a car that’s properly capable at tackling muddy fields and rocky tracks, you might want to go for a 4x4 that has a low-range gearbox and lockable differentials.

If crash-test safety ratings are important to you, then you probably want to avoid the likes of the Suzuki Jimny, Dacia Duster, Fiat Panda 4x4 and Jeep Wrangler as all scored pretty poorly in Euro NCAP testing. On the reliability front, Land Rovers have been known to perform pretty poorly, despite being otherwise excellent and extremely capable vehicles. You can see what brands perform well when it comes to reliability by checking out our guide on the most (and least) reliable second-hand cars.

If you want an extremely capable, well-equipped and luxurious 4x4 but can’t stretch to pay the full price for the likes of a new Range Rover or Land Rover Discovery, then buying used can be a very good option. Just know that servicing costs will still be high for these premium models, and reliability can be an issue. At the same time, if you just want a decently capable off-roader as a work vehicle and don’t really care about luxury items, then older versions of the Suzuki Jimny or the Dacia Duster are also good options.
