I feel like I am in a nightmare and cannot wake up! I wish wish wish I had saw these reviews before purchasing a car from fowlers! I had a black Astra 1.4 (only car I was allowed) price was ridiculous but I needed something reliable working in the community. I have had the car for 4 weeks and the timing chain and water pump had gone I reported it to fowlers and they said to take it to a garage and they would transfer the payment to them no problem. So the garage billed them £450 and wanted… Read Full Review

Purchased a Vauxhall zafira from the Walsall branch (May 2015) Took 3 hours to get all the paperwork completed.

Written on: 09/06/2015

I bought a low mileage corsa from the Bristol branch. But just to make it clear the Bristol branch are fantastic. Just before driving off the forecourt I thought I'd check the oil and water. There was water and gunk in oil cap and oil in water clear indication of head gasket issues. So Bristol branch supplied me with a courtesy car, like I said the Bristol branch are spot on they sent the corsage to a local garage who confirmed the issue. Then it's downhill car gets sent to head office STOKE ON… Read Full Review

They are a joke, I had loads of inconvience from them also. May as well not bother calling them. They said they wud me. But never did. Waste of bladdy time they are. Gud job I can fix cars myself. Even when they agreed to fix faults on my vectra it took my local garage ages calling them to ask for payment on bill. What a farse

I have been in the process of getting a car from these idiots since April after been promised 4 different cars and also paying a 300 reserve fee the cars I was promised somehow have all had different issues apparently. I am going to call on Monday and tell them I don't want a car from them as I have been lucky enough to see the watchdog episode before actually getting a car I am disgusted I've never known anything like this company and I also have a 3000 deposit been treat like an idiot I'm so angry but just happy I didn't hand over anymore money hope you get sorted out ☺

Hello,
First of all please accept my sincerest apologies on the wait that you had for your new vehicle. I can only apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. If you could e-mail me a copy of your receipt/card transaction for your lunch, I would be happy to reimburse you for this. I will also look at covering some petrol costs as a goodwill gesture. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Danny.

Agreed to buy a 2008 Ford Focus Titanium from Fowlers 2 weeks ago and from the moment I stepped into there showroom there were problems as car wouldn't start so they resolved that by getting a new battery then we noticed the external temperature gauge was reading extremely high so they agreed if we book it into our local branch of Ford they would pay for the work which was fair enough. We also asked why it hadn't had the new MOT as promised and was told they will pay for the new MOT once the… Read Full Review
