“Fantastic Company”

Written on: 04/03/2016 by dmccord90 (3 reviews written)

I applied for finance through CLS Finance at Reading Car Finance, The process was quick and simple, the staff were friendly and helpful, they didn't have a car for me so they sourced one within a week. I got a 2009 Vauxhall Corsa with only 30,000 miles on the clock and it is perfect. I could not recommend them any more. The reviews previously are clearly because they didnt pay and you lot name me one company that would not put pressure on a debtor. I have paid and had no problems… Read Full Review

“2 years in and no problems.”

Written on: 01/02/2016 by 2001 (1 review written)

Just 2 years into a 4 year contract on an 08 Ford. And just had brakes replaced other than that and 1 AA call out to a flat battery (more me than the car) cars been rumning fine, and just coming up to its second mot. Other than a cpl of tyres being replaced don't envisage any problems. First mot passed with flying colours no issues. Paying more than I'd have liked but expected to as my credit rating is not good at all so limited choices and was just relieved to have got a reliable and 'safe'… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/09/2015 by 287Daniel (1 review written)

Where do I start!!!! After reading some of your reviews I realised I was not alone. I to stupidly went into a hp contract with cls finance. All seems well. I drove my car home to then be pulled by my neighbour to say the tracking was seriously out on the drivers side and it was rubbing the tyre and the tyre was barley legal . I contacted Luton depot who told me to bring it down. I took a day off work assuming the tracking would be done there and then , to find I had driven 21 miles each way… Read Full Review

“BEST COMPANY FOR POOR CREDIT”

Written on: 27/08/2015 by 43Perry (1 review written)

I recently bought a 59 plate corsa from Manchester car finance which was lovely car. Was told i had the credit available and didnt believe them as i was Wary about companies offering finance for people with bad credit. I went to their branch in Hyde and was greeted as soon as i got there. Everything was explained to me step by step which put my mind at ease. Showed me a nice range of cars there in my price range and had a test drive of 3. I loved the corsa which i subsequently bought. The… Read Full Review

“Should have paid attention to previous reviews”

Written on: 27/07/2015 by Weejo100 (1 review written)

I took out finance with CLS for a car, through Manchester Car Finance, I was worried about the reviews before hand but let one of their reps convince me it was all just nonsense. The didn't have a long MOT on it, just a few months, I took it to a garage and the tyres were at a dangerous level to drive in .. I agreed with the sales rep to pay monthly, it is four days now to my pay day (a month and four days since I bought the car) and I had a very, very stroppy call today from CLS demanding… Read Full Review

I got a car from Newcastle car finance 2 month into owning the car mechanical problems started it took 3 months to get the car in the garage its been in 7 days and still not repaired. He is absolutely useless and avoids calls, the aftersales department for CLS finance hasn't got a clue so DO NOT get a car from these companies you will regret it

Written on: 19/02/2014 by MakkyD (2 reviews written)

I had an issue where I could not get finance as I have no pay slips and I dont pay my money into the bank (I do do my taxes). I explained the issue, said what I wanted, what I can afford (what I wanted to pay) and they sorted things out for me. Over the weekend some issues with the car arose and I contacted them, They said to get the car to them which i did they sorted out the MOT problem and replaced the tyre with no quibble that day (by 2 PM I was on my way home) Remember these are second… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/02/2014

Bought a Honda Civic in December 2013. Was lied to from day one about cars they had in stock etc. We only had the choice of this one because i only have an auto licence, which they were told on numerous occasions. The guys in Birmingham told us they were always getting people down there that had been lied to. Should have rang alarm bells then hey!!! We eventually came away with the civic, but quickly realised there was problems with the gearbox i tried to book it in and was told that they were… Read Full Review

Well here I am again still off sick so am now 2 months behind.Ive had nasty letters and emails.Have explained my reasons but not interested.They have now somehow got my daughter and boyfriends phone numbers and rang to ask if they would be guarantors wtf.Never ever gave names or numbers.Dont want the car but been advised that the car is mine and can sell it?By debt management plan people.They would have to take me to court.But I don't want to sell as feel I may have been misinformed.Still waiting to see if they collect as should have been 2 days ago no sight of them as yet.Still have 3 years to pay on it. Do not want the hassle of this car or the money.Theyll be waiting forever to get the money as I haven't got a bean while off sick.Reporting to trading standards they are loan sharks and may not be 100%legite.Please avoid these horrid rats

Never thought it possible that one building could house so many incompetent and unprofessional staff. Passed from pillar to post and one clueless member of staff to another all because they have no communication between their pathetic excuses of "Departments" Wouldn't advise anybody to deal with them Extremely efficient at taking your money an making promises they can't keep but not so quick to take ownership for their mistakes and rectify the problem, shocking service… Read Full Review

I currently have a car with these I've had it 2 and half years and was told I could swap the car after half of the agreement which is 2 years. I've rung them as I wanted to swap my car for something cheaper to run there saying I would have to pay £500 to get another car I explained I was never told this when I took the car out to be honest I've had quite a few problems with them and I've been advised to write to the court in London to see if the bill of sale is registered because they don't seem legit to me!

They must be the worse company ever they target people who for one reason or another have had a bad few years , and you want to start getting things back on track so you trust these maggots and yes all smiles , but as soon as you sign theyturn , that office is a den for rats and they should be shut down and all brought to justice , my name is gill I was threatend on the phone and the door by these rats who scurry about all day luring people to them, well its about time they got lured in to traps and closed down
