"Great after care"

I bought a Yaris from A&B autos which had a full service history. Happy with car but when looking through the service history saw that the last service said the air con condenser needed replacing. When I rang Alan admitted that they had missed that recommendation (I nearly didn't see it when I was looking over the service sheets}. Alan immediately arranged for the work to be done in their garage at no cost to me. Superb outcome to a fault. No complaints with the after care received. Thank you.

Bought a car from them for my daughter that needed a new MOT, didn't want to wait for MOT to be done and then travel back to collect car so took it as was and said we would MOT it. The car failed MOT yesterday on couple of small faults, nothing serious, so called James and he agreed to split cost of repairs and money was in my account with in 30 minutes. 10/10 You wouldn't get this kind of service from most car sales.

you and your wife test drive the car that you were interested in. As you did not have the vehicle that you wished to part exchange with you,you returned the following day for me to value it. Taking in to account that your car had covered 108000 miles and required both bumpers to be repainted,all 4 wheels in need of refurbishment,and 1 tyre to be replaced,i valued it at £660. After lengthy negotiations with you,i agreed to increase my offer to £895 and reduce the price of our car by £100. After going away,you phone me later that day to say you were happy with the deal and offered me a part payment of £500,which i accepted. On wednesday 28th August 2019 your wife phoned me to say that she could not afford the car.By this time the vehicle had been MOT"d and prepared for you.

A B Autos Staple Hill, Bristol Car dealer opening times and reviews I purchased a car at AB Autos in February and what an excellent car it is. I found Alan Jacobs very pleasant, patient, and helpful. Related searches John 35 reviews·5 photos 14 hours ago NEW My partner brought a car here in November 2022 from James the owner who should be called Del trotter, and his side kick Alan, who's been in the trade for many years.... don't be fooled by his old face and friendly ways, neither are to be trusted. When first looking at the car I asked if the cam belt had been changed with the cars yearly servicing, I was told yes by James, on further examination i went through the service history receipts myself, I saw that it was only changed along with the water pump and thermostat due to overheating issues. I was assured the car was ok and all checks were done (as A B autos are an #RAC registered trader) so I took the car for a test drive it seemed OK. Took it home and then the trouble started first evening. All weird lighting up of dials and electrical faults which stopped after a minute or two . The following day the water censor light came on. My partner called them, and Alan was like bring the car back in a few days and AB autos will fix the censor issue, but my partner would have to go back again to get the electrical issue sorted. This would have meant over an hour and a half drive each visit to their mechanic of driving, along with arranging for someone to collect my partner as well to bring her home and return her to collect the vehicle when repaired which was ridiculous, as well as being without a car for more days, as it couldn't be used due to not knowing what the issues were and if it was safe to drive. After some shouting Alan agreed to refund the car and tax money (James the owner), used my partners money to put 6 months tax on the car rather then giving her a discount ,and she taxing it herself which was wrong. I drove her to AB trotters independent traders so she could collect her money and return the car. She went in by herself and Alan (not to be trusted), held back a 100 pound of her money saying she would get the money back when the car was sold with the tax on it. My partner never owned the car, (log book wasn't even sent off in her name ), so I messeged james about her money obviously quite upset, as he never returned messeges and didn't want to talk about the issue, he eventually messeged back and stated the government had my partners money lol, which I did find funny as he was deliberately holding her money back for whatever reason. I did tell him that what he was doing was theft as the log book wasn't even sent off.... Her 100 pound wasn't returned for over two weeks , when it eventually was it £25 short with no explaining why. I'm suspecting he'll say it was to clean the car which he should have not have taken as the car wasn't ready to be sold in the first place and my partner and I wasted hours driving back and forth to his dodgy show room. Don't believe a word they say or trust either of them ,Dodgy car dealers don't even cover it and cars aren't fit for purpose . Couple of con men.

I have purchased a couple of cars from them recently and have been very impressed by their service and professionalism. Both cars have been of a good mileage and excellent condition, exactly what was promised. I found both James and Alan to be very professional to deal with and would definitely use them again.

After having had my car written off by the insurer and been without for several months I found a car at AB Autos. They were friendly, efficient and got me back on the road quickly. They are amazing and my new car is just what I needed. Would recommend them if you're looking for a new car. Will definitely use them again.

Bought a car from them just over a month ago. Had it in the garage today and discovered it needs front and back axles replaced due to rust, along with the bushes and a list a mile long. This car passed an mot with no advisor's, that there had done on it the day before collection. The garage that is putting it right has told me it is not fit for the road, (not safe) and would not of passed an mot a month ago let alone know. Never again.

Ab Autos selling cars not suitable for purpose. buyers beware.. Bought this nice looking Astra for my wife. it had part service history. They replaced the noise alternator before we collected it. Once I got the car home I checked the cambelt history. And find it had no mention of being replaced and was 4years over due. when I asked Alan to check he tried to say the Vauxhall dealer was wrong, I checked with the other garages and it was due 100,000miles or 6years. Alan said that I should have asked before, they don't do cambelts to sell the car. ALAN said AB Auto won't pay to get it done. I have had to pay £300 to get this done, or risk major engine damage. If someone else had bought this car and didn't know this could have failed and the Rac warranty won't cover this as it would be service related. possible car right off. £3900 down the drain
