"Bought my first car from Beck Evans "

Bought my first car from Beck Evans and took all the joy out of the experience. Told me if I didn’t put down a £500 deposit they’d probably sell the car, I was paying a lot of money in cash but whatever, I thought if it goes then it wasn’t meant to be. The battery hadn’t been tested or it had and they were hoping it would last but before I’d even got the car home the battery died completely meaning I was stuck in the freezing cold (January time) waiting for a engineer to come out to give me a jump start to get it home (I wasn’t reimbursed for this). Then took them 4 days to come out and replace the battery telling me ‘it was fine when I bought it’, as if. Then I had an issue with the radio cutting out randomly to which I was told that they couldn’t fix if I couldn’t bring it in when it was happening which was impossible as I work full time and the issue was random, I couldn’t pin point it or even take a good guess. This issue still isn’t resolved as I gave up taking the car back. I rely on my car as a lot of people do to get to work Overall horrible experience. Do not recommend.

I bought a car for £35,000 from Beck Evans, booked it in next day for a health check at the main dealer, they told me it has had a front end collision and the warranty is void!. Derek Rayner is the company secretary he only communicates via email, and will avoid resolving the issue and thinks he is a lawyer!. I have been in the motor trade for 30 years and they have had me over!

Staff from Beck Evans in response to DO NOT BUY FROM THIS DEALER

Despite the fact that you are a professional motor trader, Beck Evans 2000 Limited has attempted to assist you by offering to meet the cost of re-gassing the vehicle’s aircon system. As a reviewer you continue to misrepresent the status of the manufacturer’s warranty, a warranty that remains in place as clearly confirmed by the official Mercedes-Benz dealership who you have engaged with. Furthermore you now attempt to unjustly damage this company reputation by appearing to be a consumer rather than being part of Dapper Trading Limited that as a professional motor trading company was given every opportunity to assess the vehicle before making its purchase decision.

A in response to DO NOT BUY FROM THIS DEALER

You are liar Derek Rayner!! Mercedes have told you in writing that the Mercedes I bought from you DOES NOT HAVE A FULL MERCEDES WARRANTY BECAUSE IT HAS HAD A FRONT END COLLISION!!. The cost to repair the issues with car is £594.96 you offered £160.00!! YOU CAN STICK THE £160.00 UP YOUR DIRTY CONNING YOU KNOW WHAT!!!. I AM HAPPY TO SHARE WITH ANYONE EMAIL EXCHANGE BETWEEN ME AND DEREK RAYNER AND THE CORRESPONDENCE FROM MERCEDES I AM NOT THE ONLY CUSTOMER THAT HAS HAD THIS HORRIBLE BUYING EXPERIENCE WITH BECK EVANS PLEASE READ SIMILAR REVIEWS YOU ARE A LIAR AND A CONMAN YOU ONLY COMMUNICATE VIA EMAIL YOU HAVE REJECTED MY REQUESTS FOR A FACE TO FACE MEETING YOU HAVE NEVER PHONED ME YOU HAVE NEVER APOLOGISED TO ME YOU HAVE DONE ANYTHING TO HELP YOU ARE SELLING DAMAGED CARS I WILL NOT STOP I WILL CONTINUE TO WARN THE GENERAL PUBLIC OF YOU.

**AVOID BECK EVANS THEY ARE LIARS AND CROCKS!!** I Bought a 2017 LR Discovery HSE Lux and upon collection of the vehicle on 3rd December 2018 the car has problems!! Battery was flat!! ALL the braking/suspension/entertainment system not working, trim also hanging off the car, the steering vibrated at 70mph. Service manager sent me away for 2 hours and said it just needed a "Reset and a Good drive" However since taking the car it has BROKEN DOWN 3 times, half the electric don't work and drives badly. Also as part of the deal I was promised black wheel nuts and black LR centre caps that NEVER came!! I HAVE ANOTHER 10+ FAULTS WITH THIS CAR!!! I have MADE numerous calls, sent emails and videos demonstrating the problems but I get NO RESPONSE!! A man by the name of DEREK RAYNER or NEIL RELPH contact me. I WILL BE RETURN THIS CAR OR TAKING THEM TO COURT!!! **STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY THEY ARE A COWBOY OUTFIT EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE A FLASH WEBSITE!!!**

Staff from Beck Evans in response to **WORST DEALERSHIP EVER!!!!**

Dear Mr Kent, We’re sorry that you’ve experienced some issues with your Land Rover, issues that you well know can be remedied under the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty, a position that you originally accepted. Furthermore, when you then appeared to exercise a right to reject the vehicle, we made it clear that our company secretary would be in touch with you, although given the Christmas and New Year breaks such contact was somewhat delayed. However our company secretary made contact with you last Tuesday and invited you to return with the vehicle in order that you could demonstrate each of the faults you say exist; this being a requirement when a consumer exercises such right of rejection, although I know first-hand that you initially approached us as someone intimately associated to the motor trade. Regarding the supply of the additional wheel nuts and caps that were undergoing a colour change to black and which are now in our possession, you were well aware that such refinishing takes time, especially over the Christmas period. Your allegation that describes us as "crocks" sic. (I presume you mean "crooks") is entirely unjustified, not least because we make customer care the heart of everything that we do, as can be seen by some 2,000 5-star reviews The Team at Beck Evans.

I had a really nice experience buying my Ford Kuga from Beck Evans. The dealers are really nice people and they sell some very nice cars. I have had no issues with this one at all and it was a really good price.

Very good experience, I would recommend Beck Evans. I bought an Audi A3 from them in June and up to now I have had no issues at all. The car was clean and as described and very good value for money. The dealers were very knowledgeable and happy to help in any way.

No major issues. I bought an Audi A1 back in June. The car was in good condition but had a few wax marks on the outside. The car was good value for money and I have had no issues with it. My only issue is that I had to wait around for a while to view the car. Overall I am very pleased with the car and I would recommend the dealership.

"Cosmetic issues"

The car I purchased from Beck Evans has some small cosmetic issues which I was not aware of which the dealership would not repair. Other than that the car is good and was good value for money. I have had the car for a few months and have had no other issues since then. I can't say I would recommend them though as I feel they made out that the car was in better condition and then would no repair the damages.
