I was interested in 3 cars but was told only one on site at Continental Cars as not enough space to store. Told me he was to busy to help. Took my £13k else where.
I have dealt with Continental Cars for many years, he has supplied me with numerous cars for our business and a van. Richard is always honest, trustworthy and reliable, he has a laid back style which you need to understand. We recently asked him to source and supply a nearly new Vauxhall Adam for my daughter which he did very successfully and within budget. My office manager needed to replace her written off car urgently, he rapidly sourced a quality Nissan Juke at a very agreeable price compared to other dealers cars. He has also disposed of many cars for us and our friends and always achieves a higher price than you would in a private sale. John his assistant is always very helpful and nothing is too much trouble for him to sort out.
I bought a nissan x trail from them. Car was in brilliant confition with no such problems and engine was solid! Would reccoment to family and friends. Thanks JOHN
BEWARE OF CONTINENTAL CARS !!! They have little on no knowledge regarding the mechanical aspects of the cars they are selling and no on site facilities to check them before sale. Just over a month since since purchasing a Mercedes SL 350 from them the car was serviced at a reputable independent Mercedes specialist with only 370 miles covered since purchase. These are the true facts of the condition the Mercedes was in at the time of purchase. 1. Front brake pads 90% worn and discs badly scored. 2. Rear disc pads 90% worn. 3. Front lower suspension swivel assembly broken. 4. Rear drivers side brake caliper seized. Bear in mind the vehicle came with a new M.O.T. With not one advisory regarding the above items ??? Due to the serious safety issues with the vehicle I had no choice but to have the vehicle repaired immediately as there were serious safety issues. I have tried twice to email my concerns and findings to Continental cars but they have totally ignored me, so I have passed all details onto Oxford Trading Standards and wait their reply. I hope all that read this review will share my concerns about Continental cars and be careful about buying any vehicle from them without a thorough mechanical inspection.
Bought an Audi RS6 that I rejected due to a number of mechanical faults the dealer failed to mention during the sale, within 2 days there was oil over the driveway, the dealer took weeks before trying to arrange a repair in which a number of garages refused to repair the car. The oil leak had been an advisory on its previous MOT 21k miles ago. 3 weeks on the dealer has the car back and the log book is still in my name with my road tax he hasn't sorn the vehicle or registered him as the keeper to remove my tax. I advise anyone looking at the red 09 RS6 to get an independent mechanic to look over this vehicle as 21k miles is a lot of miles for an engine with the sort of performance the RS6 has to have an oil leak.
Overall the Continental Cars in Reading are good. The only problem is the after sale. Brakes were sticking and there was a sensor fault. I'd call them up and they would often not pick up and when they did they told me I needed to speak to a different bloke who was never in the office, felt like they were passing the buck to be honest. Problems turned out to be small, got it sorted myself at a BMW garage. Don't get me wrong they are nice guys at Continental Cars, just when I'm spending that sort of money I'd expect a bit more customer service. I would recommend this car dealership for their cars they have for sale that I saw, they've got some beautiful motors.
First car I purchased here was not fit for purpose. Fair enough, they gave a refund. I tried a couple of others, purely because this is a local dealer, and it would be convenient. I usually found the cars very over-priced, not great condition. Just now called them and they refused to allow me a test drive because I am a 'time waster' because I haven't recently purchased the couple of over priced poor condition cars they showed me. Shocking that they are still in business really, very shoddy!
