“It all happened as advertised”

Written on: 24/11/2014 by ifWhite266 (1 review written)

I ordered the car to be delivered straight from the factory - around a 8-10 week wait. A couple of days later I was phoned to be told there was a new car to exactly the same specs as I had ordered, ready to be delivered and at a slightly lower price than I had already accepted. I was sceptical & needed assurance that the car really had not been driven, had zero miles on the clock and that my name would be on the V5. But the car arrived exactly as advertised at 9am. I haven't seen the V5 yet… Read Full Review

“New car purchase”

Written on: 20/11/2014 by Reid202 (1 review written)

I was very surprised to find a brand new Qashqai automatic for sale with a £4000 saving and a 3 week delivery. I was regularly kept informed of the various stages of my purchase. My questions were always answered immediately and my car was delivered on the date chosen. The delivery driver took the time to show me and explain the basics. I am absolutely delighted with Buyacar and do not hesitate in recommending them to all my friends and family. A big thank you… Read Full Review

“Ford Transit Tourneo Connect 115psi Titanium”

Written on: 15/11/2014 by 291Davidson (1 review written)

I had been shopping around for the above vehicle and was more than surprised to find Buyacar could supply me a factory order car, pic your specification exactly like the main dealers but somehow save almost £2,500 on the deal. Whats the catch I thought so did the usual investigation work and decided to give it a go. The ordering process is very easy, I had to pay a £500 deposit which seems reasonable for a new vehicle and you can even pay your deposit with paypal! You have an account screen… Read Full Review

“Great price but a long wait for delivery”

Written on: 02/11/2014

I ordered a Hyundai iX35 Blue Drive mid May 2014. Delivery was estimated as the end of July. In early July this was revised to end of August by which time I'd sold my own car. My buyer was ok to wait until August 14 so that meant 2 weeks without a car. Out of the blue the delivery was then pushed back to mid September & the car was delivered on September 18. I was without a car for 5 weeks-not the 6/7 week initial delivery I was told. Communication was very poor & only after I had raised my… Read Full Review

“fantastic customer service ”

Written on: 28/10/2014

I was wary of using a company I'd never heard of before to buy a car, especially off the internet but I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone I spoke with was helpful and just dealt with facts. There was never any hard sell. I was given all the information I needed, and no matter how many times I enquired about things, I was treated respectfully. Everything ran as clockwork and I had the car I wanted, outside my house within two weeks of me first looking. I would recommend them, 100%, hassle free… Read Full Review

“Best By Far”

Written on: 13/10/2014 by MatteoArsenault (1 review written)

I was quite wary about using Buy A Car, but after looking round it was the cheapest to give me a brand new car for a lower price than the dealership. I looked at many reviews and even though some was bad (the car didn't arrive in time or they cancelled the order in 5 weeks to go.) The majority of them was good. I decided to go with Buy a Car. I waited around 10-12 weeks. The car arrived I fully inspected it and all seemed well. The driver was very pleasant and would defiantly buy a car from… Read Full Review

“Good work buyacar!”

Written on: 01/10/2014 by gbrown227 (1 review written)

Was initially wary about this as you would be. It's a big purchase and you want to get it right. Still, did my research and decided to start the process of buying my new car through buyacar. I was really happy with the process and will most likely buy my next car like this. The price was great, and much more affordable than a anywhere else I tried. The staff on the end of the phone or email were helpful, and always responded to my messages. My family and I are really happy with our new… Read Full Review

“Great way to buy a cut price new car”

Written on: 16/09/2014 by Xander1981 (1 review written)

OK I felt a bit wary of buying something as expensive as a new car online. I did my due diligence though and from unbiased reviews decided Buyacar.com were on the whole a trustworthy and good company. Not that all reviews were good by any means but the majority that were poor, seemed to address the issue of cars not turning up on time, and I know from buying cars in dealerships that the same thing happens. If the manufacturers don't meet deadlines there is nothing the retailer, in a dealership… Read Full Review

“Very pleased”

Written on: 05/09/2014 by Brian666 (1 review written)

The ordering process was very easy and straight forward. The car was delivered with the new 64 plate as requested. The delivery driver was very pleasant and was happy for me to thoroughly inspect the car before signing the acceptance form. The car was perfect and I will certainly purchase my next car from Buyacar… Read Full Review

“Nothing to worry about with Buyacar.co.uk”

Written on: 09/08/2014 by Wayne-acko (1 review written)

I was originally buying a used nissan juke from the local nissan dealer , but they let me down, I was told I would have the car the same week but once I got home they rang and said it wasn't the case , so after waiting 2 weeks for a used juke I cancelled that and decided to look around. Whilst searching the internet for a juke I stumbled on buyacar.co.uk. After reading a lot of reviews which I will say there was an awful lot of bad reviews aswell as the good ones I decided to go for it. After… Read Full Review

“Great affordable car”

Written on: 29/07/2014 by Wrighter33 (1 review written)

I bought a vauxhall corsa diesel from Buyacar. Our car arrived in 2 weeks, on time and more importantly on budget. We did have a few issues with tyres which were resolved by getting 4 brand new ones at the dealers expense. The cars great and just what we wanted. There are always issues with delivery of new cars, but getting a used car from these guys is spot on, they even deliver it to your door. This means you can shop nationwide for the best deal!!!… Read Full Review

“confused”

Written on: 19/07/2014 by graememarsh (2 reviews written)

Having just ordered a Corsa 1.4 sxi 5 door ac at a £6000 saving from new I am confused, after making similar savings on 2 cars beforehand , that Buyacar have not rocketed in popularity or been forced out of business by dealers. Their new car deals are genuine and in my case offered substantial savings although this can be best achieved by looking for best savings and having a flexibility in your choice of car. As I have never bought second hand I cannot guarantee the same for these cars but… Read Full Review

Buyacar.co.uk's Response to Iwantedacar's Review

Written on: 08/07/2014

We are disappointed to receive this review, although not as disappointed as we were to not be able to supply this customer with a new car - it is frustrating for all parties involved.
We only supply used vehicles that are of a high enough standard; on this occasion we received news from our supplying dealer that the car advertised had been damaged, and that the severity of the damage was such that both they and we were not prepared to supply the car that could not be repaired to a 'dealer approved' standard.
Buyacar.co.uk will not supply substandard goods under any circumstances; it is very unfortunate that on this occasion we could not source a suitable alternative. We offer thousands of different used vehicles for sale, and our reviews in general demonstrate that we offer excellent service and great prices; it is to our regret that we were unable to satisfy this customer, and as noted above their deposit was returned as promptly as possible.

“Excellent car buying option”

Written on: 05/06/2014 by 186Taylor (1 review written)

I am very pleased with BUY A CAR as I made reasonable savings from buying my Santa Fe.Their quote was of good value compared to most garages, and they delivered on time. Infact the car was ready to be delivered much sooner than the expected date. I was a bit nervous at some stage about the authenticity of the service, but I was proven wrong when I actually saw my car arrive just as requested and payed for. It will help if the service develops a way to ensure prompt and adequate response to… Read Full Review

“Hassle Free Efficient Service ”

Written on: 19/05/2014 by sean8844 (1 review written)

Bought New Ford Titanium X Navigator through these guys. The whole buying process was so easy & fuss free. Updates can be requested at the click of a button but no real need as the predicted ready date was almost exact to the date given. Let me reassure anybody who may feel cautious about buying a new car over the Internet that this company can be trusted whole heartedly. Very quiet service but believe me these guys are hard at work behind the scenes to ensure customers make excellent savings… Read Full Review

“Good, but now the dealers can do better”

Written on: 24/04/2014

Bought my first X5 through Buyacar. Had a good enough experience. My trade in was not worth much and the new car price beat the dealers, so I was happy. 5 years later, went back to them to look at a new X5 to replace the now old one. The trade in price and the new car price were way worse than the dealer offered (about 4K more)… Read Full Review

Graememarsh's Comment

Written on: 19/07/2014

Understand your frustration but I have bought 3 cars now from bac and the last one for my son was a £5000 saving on a new Astra and the current one on order is a £6000 saving on a Corsa 1.4 sxi 5 door ac. Seems like Vauxhall is timeless winner on their site.
Advantage we probably had was flexibility to gain the best saving, but still sorry for your disappointment.
