Bought Audi S3 from Driveline Sports and Performance, numerous problems with vehicle, owner would not let us return it for refund or pay towards any of the essential repairs to make it safe. Disgraceful avoid this company, you have been warned.....

Driveline and the owner Mr Adeel Farooq sell cars not honoring guarantees my car needed £6k spending on it to keep it on the road and it was a 30k car cleverly hiding what they knew was wrong then not speaking to me then blocking me never buy a car from Adeel Farooq. I visited Driveline again they have done a runner it might have something to do with being arrested on 'Cant Pay we will Take it away' DCBL enforcement officers did get money for one lucky guy took 15 police officers as about 25 Farooq hoods arrived watch it on TV episode 5 series 5 hope Karma gets you Mr Adeel Farooq.

Beware these dodgy characters were on ' Dont pay we will take it away' - when the bailiffs turned up the owner and appx 10 'friends' intimidated the high court enforcement officers and the police were called! It took 3 hours and 15 police officers plus the high court officers to eventually get the £13k owed! What a great use of police time thanks to Driveline owner and his 'friends' ! Disgusting these guys should not be allowed to run a business!

I wish I had seen these reviews about Driveline Sports and Performance before I bought my car from them! The salesman assured us that if we had any problems within 28 days he would be happy to take the car back. Realised on the 20th day the they had clocked the mileage. Bought the car at 15,000 miles, previous service history shows it at 16,000 miles. God know how many miles the car has really done. Since confronting them they avoid our calls! I was wondering if anyone has had any success in taking them to court?

Bhavini Patel in response to Avoid this place

We bought our care from here and the same. Immediately noticed problems, gave it into an Audi dealership who have told us the car has been in a massive accident. Tried to get full refund in return as within 2 weeks of purchase...and the man has stopped responding and told us he won't give us our money back. Having to go via the court! Nasty man.

I Would Like To Say A Huge Thank You To Driveline Sport's & Performance Who Made My Car Buying Experience A Very Pleasant One. I Bought A Audi RS3 In Speang Blue From These Guy's, Sales Staff Was Really Kind & Friendly & Talked Me Threw Everything In The Car. My Wife & Kids Love The Car & Fell In Love With The Car As Soon As We Viewed It. Would Highly Recommend Them To Anyone Wanting To Buy A New Car. Was Well Worth Travelling From Bridgend To Buy This Car, Will Be Returning To These Guys Before Christmas For An Upgrade :)

This is a scam review. Just seen this dealership on Can't Pay We'll take it away and they owed 13k. Police turned up and arrests were made after threatening High Court Enforcement Officers. I would never recommend anyone to visit this car dealership. Owner and his associates were intimidating bullies.

I brought a car from these guys a while back now. It was a category d ...apparently fully repaired and warrantable. I took the car two days after purchase to my local mechanic as it just didn't feel right when driving. Turns out the front had been in a bad smash and had actually buckled the chassis which hadn't been properly repaired. The repairs that had been done were a bodge job and my mechanic deemed it dangerous and said it shouldn't be on the road. These guys will happily take your money but didn't want to know...2 days after purchase!!

Mr Smith in response to Avoid at all costs

Hi Sorry to hear of your problem, Word of warning to anyone thinking of buying a car from these...dont, walk away, none of the cars are what they seem.....They also advertise cars they dont have or own just to look BIG. I had similar a problem very next day! They never discuss the problem wont offer to fix it even wont get in touch with warranty people or offer to help in any way, never answer calls, they got my money now go away is their attitude. My advice.................. take them to court to reclaim your money!! I am, they will be hearing soon, want any help what to do how to do it.

Buyer beware! Happily take your car & money! But totally unhelpful in rectifying numerous issues after purchase! Cant believe the way they act/ don't act & are happy to have trading standards/ bailiffs paying them a visit!

I was very interested in buying a vehicle advertised on Auto-trader after waiting 2 days for a response from my email enquiry, i called them. I asked to view the car on a Saturday, they advised this wasn't possible because it was going in for an MOT on Monday...(not sure why i couldn't view it) ... I then confirmed the price with them over the phone and agreed to come Monday evening with a view to buy if all was okay. When i called on Monday to confirm that i would see them around 6pm... they advised as the car passed its MOT they have put the price up by approx 40% !!!!! ... Very dishonest.

Given 3 weeks to get the car ready for collection after taking a deposit of £1000, so turn up on the day and the cars not there we are told it will be back in 10 minutes, we wait an hour in this dodgy looking place with these, we find the car round the corner on a ramp so we ask the mechanic who was an honest guy to show us the car, he shows us the tracking is out and the wishbone is completely bent SHOCKING!!! So after going against their word saying the car will be ready apparently they are keeping the deposit and have acted in a threatening manner! Disgusted by these people, avoid them 100%.
