Bought a car from this dealer, sounded like really genuine person. Promissed to sort out V5c , still waiting 3 month later. Sent reminder text message and again promised to send all info to dvla, still nothing. Very disappointed with the service.

"650 miles and a 1k repair bill"

Paul is a good salesman, in fact he could sell sand to the Arabs. However when things go wrong he goes a bit quiet. 651 miles I have done and the car need a repair costing £988. I've had to borrow this money as I spent every penny I had buying the car thinking getting one from a dealer was the right thing to do. Wish I had bought the one from a private advert I looked at first. Never again.

Viewed an Audi TT begin of 05/04/2017 (Wednesday), advert said private plate coming off. Paul (owner) said expecting V5 to be back by Saturday the 8th April and he would then put original plate back on, so I said I would have it and left a deposit. Fast forward 5 weeks and still not sorted, in mean time Paul saying I could still take car on the private registration plate ! I decided to walk away from the deal and asked for my deposit back and guess what no response from Paul. He comes across as a nice guy but at the end of the day just after your money so don't be fooled. Also original advert said 2/3 owners when it turned out there were 6, Also stated service history on the car when it turns out there is no evidence of a service being carried out in the last 9 years (last service 2008). He states 3 month warranty in his advert when it turns out he will only cover up to a certain limited amount. Inaccuracies in the advert I was prepared to overlook, but if you are buying a car from him please go through everything with a fine toothcomb before committing. In my opinion this car should have never been put on sale until the private plate was off the car and the original plate back on with the V5 to prove. You learn from experience.

I bought a car from this Affordable Autos over 10 years ago when he was based in Featherstone. The car had ,unknown to me, front end damage . After getting home I noticed a bald tyre and the steering wasn't right. I went down to see him but all I got was it was sold as seen and it was my choice. He is an arrogant person who pretends to be something he isn't,claiming he was the best salesman at Mercedes! Avoid this man at all costs.

Paul have called and text you but know reply so here goes, front disks warped, air con leaking, engine under tray held on with string ( that came off on the way to the ferry thanks,) found the gear paddle in one of the doors, and I was right the seat heater does not work, Very pleasant guy who crosses is fingers and hopes, would suggest if you buy a car from him get it independently tested on a ramp , as my local kwik fit guy said he would not have given it an mot !!!

I had dealings with Paul over the last month. Went to view an Audi TT 05/04/2017, advert said private plate not being sold with the car. Paul (owner) said new log book should be back the following Saturday 08/04/2017 so I put a deposit on it. Fast forward 5 weeks I was still waiting, in the mean time Paul said I could take the car on private reg ! I agree with his explanation of events that has delayed the original number plate being put back on the car. I decided to walk away from the sale on the 13/05/2017 and asked for my deposit back and guess what no response from Paul. I will put this down to an unfortunate experience but I will not deal with back street car garages again. At time of viewing, which I decided to let pass me by, the original advert said 2/3 owners when there turned out to have been 6 previous owners. Also advert said service history, the last service on the car was carried out in 2008 no evidence of a service since. Also advert said 3 months warranty when this turns out to be limited to a set low financial amount paid by Paul. Overall a pleasant guy to deal with but typical when things go wrong he ignores you.

In my opinion and based on my experience the owner of this dealership is a bona fide liar and a cheat. He professes to be an honest car dealer when in fact he is totally the opposite. I bought a very expensive second hand car from this man which nearly cost the life of my family and I when it failed just 2 months after purchase. The engine seized on the motorway catastrophically and I nearly crashed at high speed but luck was on my side and I managed to control the car until it stopped. When I tried to contact him he was initially unavailable but after some persistence he eventually spoke to me. His ultimate response was to laugh at what had happened and told me to take my chance in court! He said he had been through this scenario many times and couldn't care less. A truly arrogant and disrespectful individual who clearly only cared for the cash. Avoid this dealer at all cost. He will do and say anything to make a quick few pounds at your expense. There are many more dealers locally that you would be best placed to try other than Affordable Autos Ultimately I had to scrap the car I bought from him at a loss of over £7k.

I also have had the same problem with this dealer. After 3 month the car is sat on my drive a non starter and he really isn't bothered and will not fix it. AVOID THIS DEALER
