We are Cars2. We are a motor dealer based in West and South Yorkshire, with major retail sites in Wakefield, Bradford and Barnsley. We’ve been giving our customers great value, a personalised car buying service and the highest standard of servicing and aftersales care since our founding in 2006.

We started as an independent, family business with a single branch on Pontefract Road near the town centre of Barnsley. Through the dedication and hard-work of our colleagues, we’ve grown to now represent a number of the world’s leading motor brands including Hyundai, Seat, Peugeot, Mazda and Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge.

As we’ve grown, we’ve got better at what we do – serving your motoring needs. But we’ve also stayed true to our purpose; we’re here to get you the best possible deal on your next car and put a smile on your face by going that extra mile to help you where we can.
