After paying a deposit for a BMW with low miles, i had to delay my original 4 weeks time frame to pick car up to 6 + at the time of sale the earliest was 4 weeks and darren said it was ok if this ran over, it did run over and they said it that i could have my deposit paid in good faith... returned ...( this was mentioned on 3 times that this was no issue by darren ) this was because they had resold the car, i was given an option to buy another BMW but this had very high mileage , so i decided on the refund since the car had sold, now told on the 4th phone call to Darren .... that this bloke called mike has put a stop to the refund.... they are clearly not men of their words so i would never ever buy nor recommend this company to anyone, family company or no family company, if this is how they run,..!.. why would you bother, as what ever they say is clearly worth nothing. What goes around comes around ...!

"A disappointing and expensive experience"

I paid a £300 deposit on a 2005 £5,000 Audi A4 Cabriolet Quattro on the 2nd of June 2021. Expensive but as a 1 owner car with 72000 on the clock it seemed reasonable. I used compare the market.com to source insurance only to find out that the companies offering insurance would not accept my 10 years + no claims discount as it had been earned on a motorhome. As the alternatives offered were too expensive I phoned Oakwood and ask them to hold delivery. I was able to phone back later that day having sourced affordable insurance but had missed my delivery slot. Fair enough. I waited to hear when the car could be delivered but heard nothing. Sunday's later I phoned and was told that there was a fault with the air conditioning and that a part had been ordered and would be be a few minutes job to fit. After a lengthy wait I phoned to ask what was happening and was told there was a problem obtaining the part. Several phone calls later I was told the air conditioning had been fixed but that a road test had shown other problems and that the car was going to be put through auction rather than sold to me. I was offered a refund or a choice of two other cars at a discounted price. These went acceptable and on the the 9th or 10th of August I've phoned to agree to have my deposit refunded. The sales person with whom I had been dealing, Dave, said that he was with a customer and would phone me back. Today day, the 13th, I phoned again to ask for my deposit This brings me to my main complaint about Oakwood Specialist Cars. I have lost count of the number of times I have phoned only to be told to expect a call back which never happened. This to me is discourteous and unprofessional and I would not recommend this company to anyone

Travelled all the way from south wales to get this car, it had just been put through a fresh MOT and service they said ready for sale, and a RAC 82 point check. The front and rear brakes were noway fit for another 12 months, they had put some budget new tyres on the front which is fine, but dident balance the wheels, so there is vibration at speed now. The wrong car Mats were chucked in, at one point it got trapped behind the break pedal and i almost crashed, Otherwise the car is in what seems perfect running order.

Bought a jaguar xe from them a week ago, they said the car is running perfect and that they done a full service thats a lot of bullshit as i took the car to my local mechanic an hi said the oil wasn't changed, the wheel bearing is very noisy and the front wheel is buckled plus theres a very bad rattle on idle, they hid all of theese details from me, would not buy a car again from them! Now i have to spend over 1k just in parts to fix the car!

Probably bought the lowest mileage 2011 a4 3.0tdi in the country. And what a car. Didn’t want to review straight away I have left it 8 months. Car had full service and was valeted for when I picked it up. No hassle, no bullshit. And the best car I have ever had. Will keep this car until the government tells me otherwise. My experience with these guys was amazing and far better than the Audi dealer up the road.

Bought a car off them 6 months ago, so far i have had a turbo pipe blown, a coolant pipe split, a new battery fitted and just discovered the brakes are down to bare metal and have knackered the discs. Now the mot should of shown the pads where low. Get an independent mechanic to check any car from these! I have only used car for commuting. Never again!
