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

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!

Bought an 04 BMW compact in April from Stoke, I live in newcastle so quite a hefty journey, anyway I got the car home and when my brother took it for a test drive he told me to get it straight to the garage. Turns out he was right the garage told me the engine was knackered and I was looking at over £1000 to fix and I should not drive it as the engine was flooding. I rang fowlers and after almost 2 weeks they picked the car up. The said they would fix it in 5 days. After 3 weeks they decided… Read Full Review

“worse car finance company ever!”

Written on: 11/06/2014 by yrFinch487 (1 review written)

I have had the most diabolical experiance with Fowlers. Firstly they sell me a once writen off car and refuse to reply to countless e-mails and telephone calls to resolve the matter. Then after eventually coming to an agreement with them to replace the car, they then sell me another 'reck' of a car that I have a list as long as my arm of faults. The first car they are now reselling without completing the work to make it road worthy. The car I now have, ive had less than a month and the brakes… Read Full Review
