Bought a car from there, told I would get £14k for my part ex, placed my deposit £300.
1 week later, car was ready and "fully serviced"
Manager said I will only give you £11k for yours, take it or leave it. They new I had no other option.
1) drove half way home, couldn't get the Bluetooth working which was a big factor for me. They admited they mis sold the car. No refund or compensation given.
2) 2days after buying - warning lights came on £200+ to fix. Carshop would not pay towards or refund my car.
3) 16days after buying - engine started to cut out.
Upon asking for the service book which they said they would post out, I found an old MOT cert in the manual, said it had done 25k more miles.
Got intouch with DVLA, TRADING STANDARDS, VOSA, and The finance company.
Carshop refused to refund, - all within 2 months of purchase.
Full investigation carried out my TRADING STANDARDS. This car had been clocked by the carshop. They removed 26k miles from the odometer. This was the 6th case in 2012.
Money returned by finance company - they was amazing 'close motor finance'
NEVER EVER BUY FROM CARSHOP
