Bought a car in June and straight away had a problem with a wheel which I had to sort as Driven weren't interested, not long after I was told one of the driveshaft had gone, again Driven no use so had to sort myself luckily this was covered by the RAC warranty. Then Bodywork that was meant to have been done before picking the car up hadn't as rust started to appear. Driven agreed to sort this despite two bodyshops telling it's to bad to be fixed, they gave me a courtesy car that was filthy and stunk and just as I got near home broke down, I was sat over 4 hours while waiting for their recovery then when the recovery arrived the driver told me the new courtesy car had no fuel in so he'd have to wait there while I went to get fuel for it in case he had to rescue me in that car. 5 days later my car was ready I drove the 33 Miles to Driven to be greeted with a car that had been bodged more than when it went in, badges missing and the inside absolutely filthy with workshop dust. Driven were aware I had a newborn and a 6yr old even without kids breathing this stuff in wouldn't be acceptable. I said I was not accepting the car and I wanted it done properly and the car putting back to how it was when it came in (they said I was being picky). I was given another courtesy car which had errors all other dash including no headlights. A week passed and I went to get the car which the bodywork had been done to a better standard but was still dirty inside so I told Driven I would get my own valet done and send them the bill (which they paid). On getting in the car I noticed everything had been reset but thought nothing at the time then I noticed my main screen was funny, heated seats don't work anymore, radio plays up, Sat nav doesn't work and the heating fans. I asked Driven had the cars battery gone flat while they had it for 2 weeks they said no when I asked had the bodyshop had any problems they didn't answer. I took the car to auto electrian who scanned the car and confirmed faults including more like the gps module and even one the new boot lights Driven fitted was showing as shorted. I contacted driven but they ignored me after several attempts. I then took the car to an RAC warranty garage who again confirmed the faults but said they warranty wouldn't cover it as the car has clearly been jumped or boosted resulting in power surge. Again I contacted Driven who still ignored me. Eventually after stating I will seek legal action I got a message to say send the reports to then via email I did and they said they'd get back to me in 14 days which they haven't. I have now had no choice but start legal action against them to cover the repair costs. So PLEASE don't waste your money or time buying a car from Driven they clearly don't care what they sell you. I'm now stuck with a faulty car and more stress of going through the courts.

I purchased a BMW from Driven, it took almost two weeks to prep it, and once it arrived there was a vibration in the steering. its almost two weeks later and they still haven't done anything anything about it. the car was sold with misshapen front tyres, a chipped rear light, cracked diffuser, and the cream on the dessert they served up, is instead of just replacing the rear wiper that was splitting, they tore the blade part off and called it a day. On a £21k performance BMW. Utterly disgusting. I was told it was serviced, but i have no proof of that as the car iDrive says it wasn't, and Driven still haven't sent out the proof of the service. I am now forced to reject the vehicle. They are by far the worst company I've ever dealt with and would recommend taking your business elsewhere.
Excellent experience buying a car from Kev. He was extremely knowledgeable about the cars he was selling, and filled me with confidence in purchasing a car from him. Excellent garage to deal with. I’d highly recommend.
I bought a car week ago from Diven Teeside and loved the car, noticed knocking sound found it was parcel shelf no clips on it rang up left message had to ring again was told it would be easier for me to sort it out rather than driven feels like once ye got car not interested in you any more feel let down
I purchased a Volvo C30 back in August. I am really happy with it, it's perfect and I have had no issues with it at all. The sales team were a big help and answered all my questions and the car was a really good price. I would definitely recommend Driven Car Sales to anyone.
Very good over all! I bought a Mercedes from here in July. It was clean and as described other than a few small imperfections which the dealers offered to get sorted. The car is great value for money and I am really happy with it. I would recommend Driven Car Sales.
I bought a VW Scirocco from here in May and I am really happy with the car, it was very clean and as described and the sales team were a big help! The car was a little pricey though. I have had repairs done on the car which took a while but since the car has g=had been repaired its been okay. I would recommend this dealership.
I know the guuys at Driven Car Sales and they are a great group, I got a great deal on the car and they gave me a good price on my part ex. All the cars are RAC checked so you can't really go wrong. There is some bodywork that still needs fixing and I'm having to chase them a bit so once they get it sorted I'll be going back and getting my wife's car from them too.
The car I bought had a major fault shortly after purchase but the dealership did take responsibility, they sent the car over to Mercedes and got the issue fixed, as they did resolve the fault I would consider dealing with Driven Car Sales again in the future.
