  • Sold dangerous car

    By Russell B 25 Days ago

    An awful experience. Don’t be fooled by these salesman- we were sold a car which had dangerous break cables !! Unforgivable that they put our lives and others at risk. Apparently the car been checked over by their mechanic. Either this was untrue or a very bad mechanic. Due to COVID we couldn’t get the car serviced until 6 weeks after buying it, when it was our garage would not let us take the car due to the break cables being severely worn and bulging under breaking. This was an existing problem which in no way could happen within the 6 weeks we had the car. Spoke to R & J and sent emails with evidence as requested, after numerous calls and emails they simply did not want to know as the car was out of warranty. Shocking service - be very careful with these people !

  • Waste of time

    By Jane S on 13 Aug

    Awful. I arranged a viewing for 4pm, took time off work and drove 1.5 hours to get there. On arrival nobody was there and the shop was closed. I rang them and they said they were on their way. 25 minutes later their colleague arrived with no clue of my viewing and called the owner to be told his car had broken down and they were now driving the car I had arranged to view from their other location. When the owner did finally arrive he asked me what vehicle I’d arranged to see despite me already telling him 4 times before and he quite clearly had not driven it from the other location. The car I wanted to view was nowhere to be seen. They could not care less about the car or the inconvenience. My advise would be to spend your money elsewhere as I believe their vehicles are not what they advertise them as and it is a waste of time

  • Car not as described in advert

    By Simon W on 12 Aug

    Test drove a car that claimed to be in "Unbelievable condition". It seemed ok so we left a deposit subject to it passing its MOT. The following day I checked on line to see how it had done. It failed on:- Emissions, both rear brake pipes excessively corroded, nearside rear axle swivel pins and bushes excessively worn,both front coil springs fractured. both front suspension arm pin or bush excessively worn. warnings :- Front brake disc worn or pitted, Oil leak but not excessive, offside rear tyre worn. Dangerous :- parking brake less than 50% efficiency. Offside rear parking brake inoperative. Having showed our mechanic this report he said don't touch that car. I agree. not my idea of "unbelievable condition" unless you mean unbelievably bad. However the dealer has refused to return our deposit. AVOID !
