I've been looking for a second hand car, I bought my last one and am thinking of asking Save On Used Cars to source me the next one. Half of the stress in buying a used car is finding one nearby from a dealer you can trust, These guys were faultless. No, they were not open to haggling but it was clear if I didn't buy the car then someone else would. Wish more dealers were like them. They sorted out everything when something went wrong under warranty (the car was ten years old, so it happens)- doing all the paper work for me.
I purchased my Black Mondeo from saveonusedcars on 20th October 2021, it is in superb condition, drives very well,very reliable, John even let me drive car from Scunthorpe to my home in Grimsby so my wife could look at it, she loves it and says it looks like a big black limousine,it’s beautiful, I will not hesitate to go back to saveonusedcars whenever I look to change vehicle in the future, it only had one owner from new and had been well looked after,I traced the previous owner who assured me they purchased the car brand new back in October 2015. Well satisfied
Called today to talk about an S4 Avant. Initially it was a really purposeful conversation. However when I mentioned a budge on price... the salesman, who loved to tell me that it was his ex car he was selling, sounded like I’d insulted him. What a weird experience. A bit of negotiation works, but an arrogance, due to an over priced car doesn’t.
we bought a Peugeot for the asking price, two weeks later my wife had to replace a tire due to a puncture. at the tire dealer he noticed that the tracking was way out and the inner edge of the tire was illegal. the car had just been MOT'd prior to us taking it. We spoke with John the 'salesman' who told us the car was fine when it left the showroom and that there was nothing they could do. So there you have it the car 'got sick after they sold it , no apology or offer to correct what was clearly a pre existing fault on the car, and i would question the MOT centre where it was tested because they surely would have seen this? I would advise anyone NOT to buy a car from these dealers, as soon as the car is out of the door and they have your cash they dont want to know.
I purchased a Vauxhall VX220 from the Save On Used Cars team in June 2020, at distance due to the COVID-19 crisis. Phil is clearly an enthusiast and was very knowledgeable without the pressure tactics. Unfortunately on day two of my ownership, a fault with the gearshift became apparent. Shaun and Phil worked with me to successfully provide compensation and have the car repaired at a garage local to myself (over 400 miles away from their dealership). Great service, communication and after-sales support from the team.
They told me on the phone the car was in perfect condition inside and out when I asked about dents etc, I travelled 250 miles to collect the car. When I arrived, the car was dirty and they could not be bothered to clean it for my arrival... (for a reason)! I soon realised the car had done many more miles than advertised, and was then told that the salesman had been driving it, but I let it go. I paid the original advertised price for the car as they were not prepared to move on the price so asked for, and expected at least a tank of fuel... nope, I had to put a full tank in myself 2 miles down the road. When I got home and cleaned it, I then saw that the front bumper was quite scuffed right where some dirt was conveniently (placed?), and the rear bumper also had a dent in. I understand that a 3 year old car may have a few bits, but to blatantly lie to me is disgusting and not good business practice. Also beware, they only give you a 30 day warranty which is laughable and not worth the paper it is written on. I would not trust these people, so buyers beware! I do not want others to experience this stereotypical used car sales company and their company name saveonusedcars.co.uk speaks for itself. So save yourself the agro and save-on-used-cars elsewhere!
Bought BMW 2 weeks ago from Save on Used Cars, issue with braking on higher speeds,basically vibrating. I suspected warped front discs. Spoke with Shaun,booked car in at Savoy for 2nd opinion the next day. Pads and front discs replaced, authorised with no trouble. Thanks Shaun.
After reading some adverse reviews about Save On Used Cars, I was a bit reluctant to buy from them. How wrong could I be? There was good welcome when we arrived. We purchased a nearly new Seat Toledo, it was well presented, a good price and satisfactory part exchange. The people in the showroom were polite, professional and very helpful. We were provided with a phone to swap our insurance and taken to Post Office for the Road Tax. The whole deal couldn't have been easier or more pleasant. Thank you guys!
5* for Save on used cars! No pushy salesmen trying to force you to buy a car. They just let you get on with it. I bought an Astra in December 2018. Originally had a few faults like nail in tire and glow plug issue which was quickly rectified. Not had an issue since! Just WISH I had mentioned the dent/mark which is very noticeable in the door and the paintwork peeling on the roof at the time of purchasing. I don't mind the odd scratch because after all it is an 8 year old car! Didn't bug me at the time but is getting to me now I know it's going to cost me.. Thanks, Jamie.
Bought Mazda from Save on Used Cars on 30/09 for £2695 (exc pxc). Less than 4 months later car needs whole new engine, and requires substantial work to return to a roadworthy standard. Company clearly not checked vehicle prior to sale. Have completely ignored my email asking for resolution and now sadly I need to take legal action to regain money lost. Really poor experience and service.
