I recently agreed to buy a car from Tom at Bournemouth High performance. I myself am a car dealer and was sourcing a car for a customer here in Northern Ireland. The deal was done via telephone and £1000 deposit sent to secure the car until we could arrange collection. Due to a delay with a money transfer between bank accounts this was to take a few days longer than expected but these guys refused to wait even with our substantial deposit paid. I received countless calls telling me that if we hadn’t sale completed by end of day they where keeping our deposit and pulling out of the deal! Toms manner on the phone was diabolical, he proceeded to swear etc and make what should be a simple sale unnessesarily difficult. Due to this manner and complete disregard for customer service I have decided to not do business with these guys and they have relisted the car for sale and still hold my £1000 and refuse to return! AVOID AT ALL COSTS...HORRIBLE TO DEAL WITH!Never in years of motor trading have I encountered such aggressive devious people!!

The cars at Bournemouth High Performance are in great condition and are good value for money. I put a deposit down on a BMW 320d sport and unfortunately couldn't find reasonable insurance cover. BHP were very professional and understanding and gave me a full refund of my deposit. I would definitely recommend this car dealership as they have very affordable finance deals. I'll definitely be purchasing a car off of them in near future!!

Lucky you! I think you had a close shave not being able to buy a car from these! The car would have broken and you would have had to fork out to get it sorted due to their warranty covering NOTHING!!!

14/02/2017 Update to the previous review I have been in further contact with Bournemouth. High Performance and we have come to a resolution due to the huge misunderstanding of the previous review, Bournemouth High performance are not at fault for the problems that have occurred with the car and have been extremely professional regarding this misunderstanding providing me contact via both phone and email. Please do not let my previous review hinder your feelings towards this company, they are car enthusiasts with a passion and I highly recommended them, please ignore the below review, this was all written under the impression of a misunderstanding and should be ignored. Date of review - 12/02/2017. Bournemouth High Performance sold me a vehicle with an apparent number of problems. After only three days of me owning this vehicle the first major problem became apparent and I have been struggling to drive the vehicle due to the extra noise and risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. The problem was to do with the exhaust system on the car. A leak from the front was causing carbon monoxide to leak into the cabin which has left me feeling light headed and nauseous on more than one occasion. This is a problem that was not discussed at the time of purchase, neither was the fact that the motor in the near side window is also needing to be replaced at some point soon. I was also told that I would get a year's warranty on the vehicle with the AA. When I contacted the AA about the problem with the exhaust leak, I was told that the documents were not registered to my name. I was then put on hold whilst they made the relevant changes, when I spoke to the employee again I was informed that they would not cover the cost of the repair as this had been excluded from the warranty. I was not aware of the exclusions until after the purchase of the vehicle. It took multiple attempts throughout the day to successfully achieve any contact with BHP (phone, voicemails and emails). When I finally spoke to someone at BHP, I was informed that they would cover the costs of the repair or provide a full refund if the repair costs were to much for the warranty (I then explained how this repair would not be covered by the warranty) this was all discussed over the phone. I never received any written confirmation which I had requested multiple times. I arranged for the vehicle to be inspected by my local garage (2 garages turned down the job). The first garage quoted £2000 for a full replacement exhaust and after taking a look informed me that the welding had been poorly done. The second garage turned down the job however suggested another garage to me. The third garage turned down the job. Finally, the fourth garage who had been recommended to me, are an exhaust specialist located around 20 miles away. They have quoted just under £300 to repair, however have a 2 week waiting list. They also explained that this problem had been caused by a poor weld job. After sending this invoice to Bournemouth High Performance via email whilst speaking to an employee on the phone, I was ensured that they would send me a confirmation email (which I never received) confirming or denying whether they would cover the repair costs. Since never receiving any response, I am having to foot the repair bill myself as well as dealing with the local residents who have complained about the increase in noise due to the exhaust leak. I find this company extremely unprofessional in the way that they have treated my situation and the lengths that they have gone to to avoid discussion to resolve this problem. I am lucky that I have not had to pay for the first quote of £2000. Purchase date - 04/02/2017. Problem started - the evening of 07/02/2017. Booked into first garage 09/02/2017. Booked into fourth garage - 11/02/2017.

This is a terrible company. Since I picked the car up the steering has been playing up, it's now so bad I am not using the car as much. I have tried getting it sorted by the years warrenty they offer, its not worth a pinch of salt. The boys at bhp have not returned my calls or emails for 8 weeks, there 100% in the wrong i am still only 10 months into the years warrenty with a fucked car. So angry at the boys at bhp Tom and Danny don't give two hoots about aftercare. Any good reviews must have been written by themselves. I would be amazed if they did the honest thing and replaced my steering pump but I have little hope. Not recommended

We bought our quashqai+2 car at the end of August and was really pleased when we saw it apart from the boot button panel came off in our hands as we opened the boot when inspecting. They said don't worry that will be fixed when you pick it up. We went the following week to complete on the car and it looked like it had been fixed but as it was inside of the building without any lights on we couldn't see. So they told us the car came with a full years warranty And a years mot. Once we got home we noticed the back panel had been stuck on with silicone and was seeping out and it was all over the boot. We contacted them and they said they would look at it if we took the car to them. So the following week we took the car down and yes they did fix it. But we also noticed that the full years mot that they said we had on the car actually run out in 6 months so wasn't a full year at all. Less than a month later there was a awful noise coming from the front wheels of the car. We spoke to the garage and they originally wanted us to take our car to them to be fixed but they then changed their mind the day before we was due to go down the said we could take it to a garage more local to us and they would pay for it to fixed. We took it to a local garage that we trust and found out that one of the front wheel bearings had gone and had also the front brakes were damaged. We contacted BHP and they said they would pay for the wheel bearing to be fixed but wouldn't pay for the brakes as he didn't believe the brakes were gone. The garage we took it to are not a rip off garage and are family run and go by their reputation. So we have ended up out of pocket getting the brakes sorted. Then a month later the rear brakes went...there was a horrendous grinding noise. We spoke to Tom and he said there is no way the brakes would have gone and accused us of drive the car recklessly and with the handbrake on. Not sure how this would have been done with a 10, 6, and a 1 year old in the car and if he thinks we hAve money to just throw away then so be it. He then wanted to see the mot certificate to see if there was any advisories on it so we sent him a picture of it as there were none he said it seemed odd so looked up the previous mot certificate (which was only a month before they had it mot'd) and that had an advisory on it of rear back brakes wearing thin. (Seems to us that something dodgy has happened just to make the car look better than it was) tom of bhp admitted (through text) that an error somewhere has occurred. So he said he would only pay for he brake pads to be fixed not the discs. We took the car to the same garage as the month before and had the brakes sorted and yes Tom of bhp did pay us for the pads but we are out of pocket again as the discs were so worn they needed changing too. We didn't expect to buy a car and 2 months later be out of pocket having had to get the car fixed to make it road worthy.
