Martin was great looking after me. The car I bought had some mechanical issues after purchase. Spoke to Martin who arranged everything to be sorted no questions, no agro, no additional cost, he just got it done. Excellent service and I think the first honest and genuine car dealer I have met/bought a car from. I really appreciated the no quibble, no fuss service I got. I would honestly recommend them.

Full of promises but once the car is in their possession just don't trust what they tell you. They had sold my cars the advert was still live on their website. But because they advertise all over the place you would never know it was sold. It took some probing and searching to find out the car had sold. When I asked they then told me it had. You will never know what they sold a car for even though they promise to split the deal so each party benefits. Their is nothing transparent it's all very secretive. Simply these people are ex car dealers who have seen that dealing in classic cars is far more lucrative. In other words just don't believe what you are told. Very charming and try to appear they are freinds. Not in the slightest "smiling assassin comes to mind"

Martin Archer from M & M Automotive in response to Acting as a broker

Thank you for your review, all feedback is important to us and we’re sorry to hear you’ve had such a frustrating experience. As you can hopefully see from our other reviews, your situation is the exception and far from our usual high standards. This makes us all the more keen to make sure this gets resolved and doesn’t happen again. As a consumer, the purchaser of your cars have 30 days to return a car for any reason for a full refund, thus in this instance, the money was indeed passed to you in well less then 30 days. We are obliged to adhere to the laws relating to the consumer rights, I do hope you understand our position now. Sincerely Martin

"Triumph 1980 TR7 CONVIRTABLE"

Hi Well I got a convertible tr7 from these guys, payed top money for it. Very nice to deal with and helpful when buying the car. Was told the car had none of the faults these cars normally have But be warned once you have the car they want nothing todo with you. The car was had a long mot and had not been driven much from that mot, it had also had the brakes and full tune up done. Well after a few months and a chance to go over the car This is what I found Brakes a total mess, wrong shoes fitted on the back, front calipers bleed nipples rusted in place, so brake fluid not changed in years So I decided to sort out, recon calipers fitted, correct rear brake she’s fitted ( found springs missing and what was there fitted wrong ) also found master brake cylinder leaking, so had to replace that ( how did this pass an mot like this ), DANGEROUS After that I looked at the clutch mast and slave cylinders, found both leaking and again fluid not changed in years, so replaced the lot. Then did the cooling system, found coolant needed replacing and also very very low, again not looked at for years, now replaced also new cooling pipes fitted. Gearbox is next as it too needs new oil as it’s hard to get gears when cold, probably wrong oil in it too. Car has very very heavy steering, suspect not serviced for years again, another job todo, but did find new rubbers on steering column but bolts not done up correctly , found loose. DANGEROUS battery not secured property easily sorted. Found clogged fuel filter, easily sorted but doing this showed that the tune up was not correct. Oil light comes on now and again, this might be an easy job , But car sound ok, a bit tapped noise when hot, another job to be done They have offered to buy the car back, but reading other reviews, I’m not giving them the chance, I’ll get it all sorted over time This car was DANGEROUS, and how did it pass an mot And how can any car dealer have the guts to sell cars in this state, when they have charged top money for it I know they payed just over 4K for it at auction in December, I found this After I brought it. I payed nearly 6k for it, these faults should have been sorted, But they never bothered with it, OVERPRICED FOR WHAT YOU GET I have spent a lot on it just to get it safe, when it should have been when sold I know it’s an old car and I did not expect a perfect car, and it would need work, but I did not expect a DANGEROUS car for top money, just a good one. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS DEALER, YOU WILL END UP PAYING WELL OVER WHAT THE CAR IS WORTH, PLUS IT WILL NOT BE SAFE TO DRIVE UNTILL YOU GET SORTED YOURSELF, AND ALL THERE INTERESTED IN IS MONEY , THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN YOU AFTER YOU HAVE GOT THE CAR STAY AWAY BUYER BEWERE ITS YOUR MONEY AND ITS YOUR CHOISE. I FOR ONE WILL NEVER DEAL WITH THEM AGAIN VERY BAD DEALER, BUT NOT BAD PEAPLE, BUT ONLY INTERESTED IN MONEY

Mr L in response to Triumph 1980 TR7 CONVIRTABLE

Hi I do think after reading reviews that this is your normal standard, Yes the car had an m.o.t, but leaking brake master cylinder , bad contaminated brake fluid, Broken brake calipers nipple, wrong brake shoes on the rear, tells me you had not looked at the car Before selling it again at a huge markup, you payed under 4K for it and sold it to me at 6.5k And you did not even change its oil and oil filter, you did no dealer prep on the car apart from wash it and hover it out. I did not expect a perfect car due to its age,but I did expect a safe one. Just because it had an M.O.T DOES NOT mean the car is safe, it means it was safe on the day of m.o.t Oh for got about the weeping fuel tank £800 to fix , and how about the steering nukle that the m.o.t picked up U did not make any attempt on changing that. I did inform you about the big problems, but the response was very poor and that’s why I posted the review And now your reply just goes to show others that what you sell and your customer service are of a very low high standard.

Q. What do you want from a classic car dealer? A. An honest appraisal of the car you are interested in. No pushy sales patter just a fair price and the mutual appreciation of owning an old car and everything that goes with it. Martin and James are experienced and both motor enthusiasts, What more could you want when buying your dream motor - flowers on delivery? Forget it, you drive away with a big smile instead. 😁

The day after I first phoned them, I took my car to them to sell on my behalf. I was pleased with the price they suggested. James took me to the station to catch a train home. The ads they created were superb and the photos showed my car off to the best advantage. I was told my detailed service history would be a great help as a selling point. A week later I missed my car too much! I decided to take it back! I was treated with such understanding and made to feel under no obligation to continue with my first intentions. When I went to collect it, I fell in love with my classic all over again. When I die, I want it to be sold by M&M Automotive, but until then I will remain the proud owner. My car was valeted and made to look better than I’d ever seen it before. It shone like new and they even cleaned my engine, rolling back the years to make it immaculate! I was so relieved no one had bought it before I changed my mind. I could never imagine a better experience than meeting and interacting with my new friends, James and Max. I wish them every success in their business. I heard of them by word of mouth and will tell all I meet about their superb customer service and friendliness. Seeing their showrooms took me back to the 50s, the days of my childhood. That alone was worth the visit.

Buyers beware..... I recently bought a 66 mustang which they sent out without being checked. The petrol pipe was corroded and split and had meshed petrol everywhere, I was told that I was lucky the car hadn’t burst into flames. The Speedo wasn’t working and there was loads of issues. They charged me £680 for delivery and collection Of a car which was not Even roadworthy and so far have refused to refund this.

Thank you all who left reviews. I was about to ring to work out a deal on a Merc 190e sight unseen and have it shipped to Ireland because it looked so good in the photos, but now I just couldn't take that chance. I'll keep looking.

Martin and James have been incredibly good. always quick to respond to questions, helpful and not pushy. we had an independent survey and it pretty much echoed their opinion. all through transaction they were patient and supportive, and continue to be. they go the extra mile. we don't buy cars often, but would go back and recommend their stock and service.

Have just had the car delivered, very helpful and careful delivery driver, I inspected the car, but was not able to test drive, as weather was so bad, but decided to buy anyway, have not been able to test the car as yet owing to the Corona Virus, but she starts and sounds excellent. The car is as described, as we all know, a classic is rarely perfect, and this car still needs some TLC, but I am very pleased. I found M&M communication to be excellent, always replying to my emails
