"WOULD NOT BUY A VEHICLE HERE"

Please be aware of this company. They sell vehicles with warranty that are essentially non runners. They asked me to return my vehicle to them for repairs then refused to let me have it back. They still have my vehicle and the money, it was only corsa £3000 but seems as though they have done this numerous times before

I called CJS regarding 2 Audi A5s, red and beige. Told them I was coming from London so needed an accurate description. Red A5 was described as immaculate, FSH priced at £6995 08 year. Beige A5 was described as very good with a scratch on side n/s. £6495 09 year. Here is what I found on arrival: Red A5 multitude of severe stone chips and scratches to bonnet and n/s front wing, bonnet misaligned, rear parking sensor missing., alloys heavily marked. Beige A5 heavily stone chipped with rust coming through, very large chip to roof (10mmx10mm) paint missing and rusting, scratch to rear wing (as stated) however it also had a large gouge lower down, alloys kerbed badly. Bonnet again misaligned. Both cars are still at swinton (6 weeks later). Red now priced at £6395, beige at £5595 and still no takers lol. These are the cheapest on autotrader by some way and still no one wants them. Just tell the truth swinton and stop wasting peoples time, this issue comes up a fair bit in reviews and unfortunately its true. Judging on pictures they post, I believe the longer they have cars, the more they get damaged which is not a good sign. No doubt they can and do sell good cars, but you are taking pot luck, avoid where possible.

Andy in response to Rude & deceptive

I was looking at a 3.0 TDI Audi at this garage until reading these reviews ,I think I will pay the extra and buy from main dealer or reputable dealer.

Carl Sullivan from CJS Car Sales Swinton in response to Rude & deceptive

Response to Rude and Deceptive Remember this guy well. Came down with a 50 page dossier of A5 Adverts along with his flask and sandwiches. Was looking at our A5 which is priced at trade money and was expecting a brand new one. Unfortunately his budget purchase price won't stretch to a brand new one.

Carl was so friendly and knowledgeable he made buying my new bmw smooth and fast. High mileage but one owner with full bmw history and a grand cheaper than the other one I was thinking of buying. Had it a month now so fingers crossed it was the right car for me.

Friendly and knowledgeable customer service. They let you view the car on your own rather than being pushy sales vultures and make you feel comfortable. Great communication throughout. A huge variety of cars and in great condition. 100% recommend.

"NEVER BUY A CAR IN THIS PLACE"

Never buy a car in this place. I bought a car a month ago and in the first week the car had several faults. Carl told me the car had a three-month warranty, but when I took the car to the garage, I was charged a more expensive bill that was priced higher than in any other garage. He told me that he would only cover the first 200 pounds and the rest he had to pay. It also gave me the option to give me back the car money, but it was a lie. The next day, the very rude owner and shouting at me, told me that he would not refund the money and that I did not have the three month guarantee.

Purchased a nice bmw 520d auto, all looked and sounded good. Was told there was a 1 month warranty as it was a great price so happy enough with that. after a good hour journey home and getting used to the car realized gear changes where sharp and there was a judder at certain speeds. also blue smoke at times, also key fob wont lock or unlock car so have to use the key. Well 2 days after I phoned the garage to explain the faults, nice man called Carl said that as it was a great deal there was no warranty, but he would sell me one for £200. I have nothing in writing to say there's no warranty or its a trade sale, so now i'm going to how I get on but i'm guessing small claims court and trading standards are the best people to deal with.

Found the car I wanted and at a great price, was told how much I needed to borrow including the warrantee charge, arranged finance then got told had to leave a deposit which also covered the warrantee, explained I'd put that on finance but still had to pay extra to take the car off sale??? Went to collect the car a couple of days later. The advert said the timing belt had been done, got in touch with the dealer that had completed every bit of work on it and guess What, it's never been done. Now I have to fork out £300 to get it done. Rant over, staff were great, car is fantastic and got top px price for mine. If your after a good used car definitely consider them, just watch the figures.

Bought a car from CJS Car Sales Swinton and had it a very short space of time, wouldn't fix it and accused me of breaking it. 'See you in court' was the reply. We will. And Watchdog. And everywhere else I can publicise this.
