“Fowlers finance worst company ever”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by Kjc22 (1 review written)

After purchasing a car from fowlers in May it developed engine problems to the point we had to stop using it 32 days later. Not what you expect from a vauxhall astra 07 plate with only 38000 mile on clock. I contacted fowlers straight away to which it took them 14 days to agree for it to be taken to a garage recommended by them for a diagnostics. Garage find big faults and £1000 of work that needs to be done. Fowlers took a further 7 days tnot to agree for work to be carried out but to offer… Read Full Review

Speak to your finance company first tell them the car is not fit for purpose. If that doesn't work go through the complaints procedure if that still doesn't work they are part of the RMIF go through them and your last option is a small claims court. It's a lengthy process but worth it! I've be trying to get my money back since March. They are supposedly sending me a cheque. Good luck

“Excellent from start to finish! thanks fowlers!”

Written on: 11/07/2014 by AbdullahRomero (1 review written)

Having read the reviews on this site i was obviously sceptical about applying to fowlers. How wrong could i be, it seems people like to write negative reviews but you don't see the positive reviews? well, having had issues with my credit i decided to give fowlers a go! Didn't think i would be accepted so was shocked and excited when Mark at Stoke called to say he could help get me back on my feet. He couldn't have been more helpful and understanding and discussed in detail the process making… Read Full Review

“People is at fault”

Written on: 08/07/2014 by JamariKirk (1 review written)

Reading all these reviews' It's people at fault here I believe To be fair it's you that jump in with two feet.. All problems with the cars why on earth would You drive away a faulty car?? Some people on here have a list longer than their arms with problems but more than happy to complain after they have driven the car away.. Don't you inspect the cars?? You are in fault, you wouldn't go to any cloths shop and pay for items with out looking at what u want. You have bad credit so deal with… Read Full Review

So what your saying is that if you purchased something that costs thousands and if it was faulty you would just accept this fact, pay for said item and blame no one but yourself?
I buy clothes online which I haven't actually seen for myself? So does that mean if it arrives faulty it was my fault? Just because people have bad credit does not mean they can't afford a car it simply means they had trouble in the past. Obviously we aren't mechanics and it took for a mechanic to take a look at the car I purchased to realise how big the problems were! Nice try my friend but you are taking out of your behind!
Please note you now have many people laughing at youself and your comment! Way to go making yourself look stupid!

“AVOID. AFTERSALES AWFUL CLUELESS STAFF”

Written on: 03/07/2014 by dingy1989 (1 review written)

Brought a car on the 20/06/2014 from the Sheffield branch,car had just been put through an mot. The car had been poorly valeted and had clearly not seen a sponge for a while. Making it difficult to assess condition. After over half an hour of wiping dirt of the car i decided cosmeticaly it was suitable, a short test drive through a busy/noisy town centre the car seemed ok and away i went. Once onto a motorway (less background noise) it was apparent that something was wrong, a large humming… Read Full Review

It took 4 days from start to finish and my Fiesta Freedom Zetec is fantastic !! It was clean... I was able to test drive it… Read Full Review

I am also having huge problems with this company. the last 3 month have been a nightmare (my review is about the BMW) I have contacted a lawyer, CAB, Trading standards, BBC watchdog, Don't get done get dom and my most recent was RMI.
Hopefully I will get somewhere with RMI. This company needs shut down!
