"Lost my deposit"

I was going to purchase a car from here and had put a deposit down on it. Unfortunately I initially had problems because the finance company wouldn't deal with them. I then tried to get hold of them to explain that I could not pick it up when I said that I would and to ask if they would hold on to it until Friday. I could never get through. It just went to voicemail and the mailbox was full. I didn't get a response to my email either. I think that I might just end up going elsewhere which means that I will lose my deposit. I will fight that though. They also limited the test drive as well. I was told just to take it a mile down the road. They wouldn't do it with a 12 month MOT either.

Artur Kaminsky could not do enough to help myself and husband to buy our new car. We are both in our 70+ years old and not very up on tecno, he was very kind and help full. All was excellent.

My dad and I purchased a seat leon from this dealer and within a couple of weeks, an injector broke while on our way to our holiday. when we contacted them to ask if they would cover it under the standard warranty they supply and also the extended warranty we paid £300 for. The car now faults with the clutch so a reasonably priced car has now cost over a grand more than we paid. I would strongly recommend against buying from this company

My daughter and her boyfriend recently bought a 2016 66 plate Peugeot 208 reg BV66 RMY from these cowboys. Test drove the car and all seemed fine so deposit left and told it would have its MOT within a couple of days which it did. I don't know who does the MOTs but must be blind or bribed to be deaf and blind. Anyway picked the car up and it seemed OK but after only 8 days it went into limp mode and luckily only a short distance from home so limped it home. Discovered there was no oil in it but there was oil when we checked a few days earlier. Put some more oil in and still wouldn't run properly. The day after it ran but not brilliantly so took it to a trusted garage to get it checked out. The garage said the engine needed replacing as the 3rd cylinder was knackered along with the catalytic converter and in the space of 2 days had used a load more oil. Went back to the garage demanding a refund but was told it needed a managers permission to issue it but no manager about. They said they would ring but false promises as they never did and went 3 times to be told the same tale. It took my daughter to send a text threatening legal action for them to agree the refund. Surprise surprise the day after the car was returned its back up for sale to some other unsuspecting mug. This company should not be allowed to trade as when my daughter returned the car there were a few more angry customers demanding refunds. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Bought a car October 2023. When driving away, engine overheated and had to stop to buy coolant - completely empty. Oil light also flashing and beeping. Emailed the garage using the contact form on the website but no reply. Took the car to my local garage who identified serious issues including the engine, brakes and clutch with a possible repair bill of £1000 and advised me to return it. They had seen 3 cars from Cleckheaton motor sales that week, all with problems. Went to the garage less than a week later for a refund. Initially they were unhelpful, saying they could not authorise this, but we were determined, and then soon gave me a refund, including the money spent on the warranty, but not without telling me they could have been 'awkward' with me and with no apologies. They also informed me that the V5 had not been sent off, as they keep all paperwork for a month 'in case of problems like this' We thought we had hit on a cheap solution after our old car was written off, but wish we had saved ourselves the worry and heartache and gone to a large, trusted dealership in the first place, which is what we did the very same day as returning the car. I now feel safe and looked after, in a car that has been thoroughly serviced and which comes with a long warranty with the dealers (not some third party company)

Bought a car from here in June 2023. Had nothing but issues since!!! Engine management light came on as I was driving and the car broke down on me within the first month. The injector was broken and when AA came out to look at the car they confirmed the car had been sold to me with 3 of 4 injectors working. The car was not even road worthy and unsafe to drive! They should be ashamed to be selling people cars that are not even safe. All they care about is taking your hard earned money. Tried to call the garage and they keep hanging up on me, absolute scammers. ALL I HAVE GOT TO SAY ABOUT THIS COMPANY IS AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS! **Lesson learnt to read reviews on car company's before purchasing**

Report them to trading standard the more eople that do they will be investigated. They were fined in 2019 for 23k for dodgy cars

I’m amazed to see Cleckheaton Motors rated as 2 star. I’ve used them for my last two cars and have highly recommended to friends and family. They’re my No1 choice for 2nd hand motors, always found great quality for my money and great service from their staff. I suspect some bad reviews may come from local competitors? Cleckheaton for me every time Kay Hall of Halifax

Bought a car from these guys in April and I’ve had nothing but issues since. Problems with the engine, the fuelling system, the exhaust, the battery, the clutch! You name it there’s been an issue with it. Took it for a test drive and it was fine; shortly after leaving the forecourt with it it broke down. Tried to get hold of the garage for DAYS to absolutely no avail. Left countless messages and heard nothing back. Wasn’t until I made the trip back over from Leeds and turned up back at the garage that they agreed to get it into a partner garage to get it sorted and even then it took the absolute mickey. Purchased an 18m warranty through the garage that has turned out to be as useful as a chocolate fire guard, and a quick look on a search engine describes it as “a dodgy warranty company for dodgy garages” Kicking myself for not doing more research before purchase but have bought many cars in the past and trusted the sellers too much as I fell in love with the vehicle, It’s places like this that give car dealerships a bad name. Dodgy as. Save your time and money and look elsewhere! My “affordable” car has turned out to be anything but.

"Dodgy cars with dodgy MOTs"

Purchased a car with a brand new 12 months MOT so thought should be OK ... wrong. The day after I Purchased it had it booked into garage as CV joint was clicking on full lock, this was known about at purchase and £95 knocked off price off the car fair enough. The reputable garage then preceeded to find 4 major faults with the car that would have never passed an MOT, they were shocked at what they found, rear shocks completely blown and had been for a long time, front suspension top mounts completely disintegrated, front breaks both in a dangerous condition. This was 3 days after an MOT pass and the car only doing 40 miles I smell a dodgy MOT. Cost me £1000 to rectify all the faults and make the car roadworthy for my child I didn't want the seller to do the work as they are dodgy as F##K and wouldn't have trusted them, The warranty states engine and gearbox only. When I contacted them to see if they'd be willing to help with the costs of repair all I got was we'll give you a refund for the car lol, sure you will and receive a car back that's roadworthy with all new suspension and breaks and probably sell for more. Since the repairs also had a gearbox issue but was cheaper to repair it than the recovery costs to get it back to them and again wouldn't trust them as don't believe they have a qualified mechanic on the books bodge it and scarper. Lessons learnt bought cars for years but always used proper reputable dealers never had any issues with them that's what I'll stick to in future.
