“MY NEW CAR!”

Written on: 15/10/2014 by 480Bailey (1 review written)

I had been looking for a new car for some time but was let down time after time by several other garages. A friend of mine had been to Sascron recently and told me they had a car just like the one I was after, so after a quick look on Sascron's website I called up to make an appointment to view a Mercedes GL350 and spoke to a salesman. He told me that he would have the car cleaned and put in the indoor showroom as it was raining so that i could view the car in the dry which none of the other… Read Full Review

“Shockingly bad customer service”

Written on: 10/09/2014

Well, where do you start with these chaps. There are plenty of words to describe car dealers and the harshest of these wouldn't do the good folk at Sascron Ltd justice. It all started when I spotted what looked like a decent car for sale at just under £6k. I gave them a call and asked if it's ok to get an RAC inspection carried out before I made the journey down to test drive it. I was told by the salesman that I would have to put a £500 holding deposit down on the car to allow the RAC… Read Full Review

“Buyer beware”

Written on: 06/09/2014 by Naumachia (1 review written)

I bought my Vauxhall Insignia back in March this year. Although it had felt a bit sluggish I had been generally pleased with the car. Until this week. A service warning light appeared on the dash. I took the car to a local garage. On top of the service it needed four new disks - fair enough, they wear out but surprised that I needed four with only 58000 on the clock. Worse, the service uncovered a bodged repair to the pressure pipe between the intercooler and the throttle body. They had… Read Full Review

“I wouldn't recommend this garage to my worst enemy....”

Written on: 14/07/2014 by Hopperqi315 (1 review written)

I wouldn't recommend this garage to my worst enemy. Once you leave the garage with your car, customer service does not exist. One good thing for me is that I bought the car on finance so reported the issues I had to them and they paid to sort the problems out as the garage where not claiming responsibility. No gesture of goodwill either from the garage. Stay well away. … Read Full Review

“Astra”

Written on: 22/06/2014 by Glm88 (1 review written)

I purchased a Vauxhall Astra from Sascron Limited a couple of weeks ago and dealt with a guy. My previous car (also a Vauxhall Astra) was badly damaged in an accident and written off so I needed a car quite quickly. He was really sympathetic and showed me several cars before I decided on choosing another Astra. I have a hearing problem and the team there were absolutely fantastic, having a disability I felt quite awkward but I was treated with respect and not patronised. He arranged finance… Read Full Review

“Excellent Customer Service.”

Written on: 18/06/2014 by sevans50 (1 review written)

Big thunderstorm in the Reading area last Friday/Saturday – result was two plus inches of water in the front passenger foot well of my pet Skoda Yeti. I bought the Yeti from Sascron before Xmas – but as they are just down the road from me I decided it was worth asking their advice on the best way to dry out the car. Confirmed that there was no cover under the AA Gold Warranty for water ingress and subsequent damage. Despite that, the advisor asked the workshop to check out my vehicle to… Read Full Review

“Great Car, Great Experience”

Written on: 13/05/2014

After visiting the excellent website I visited the Showroom and purchased a 2007 BMW 325i convertible. Great car and in excellent condition. Service was great and not pushy in the slightest. The sales person was friendly and made the transaction easy and arranged everything. On picking up the car I noticed the glove box was broken. A new part was ordered and fitted the following week without fuss. In all a good experience so far… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/02/2014 by Kalvinder (1 review written)

I bought a Audi A3 in August 13, 2010 model low mileage it appeared in excellent condition. It drove well for a couple of months then the problems started , engine cutting out . I took it to a garage and was told shocking news the turbo needed replacing a huge cost ! I contacted Sascron who were unhelpful they could not help because the 3 month warranty had expired. As a customer I expected a quality car and after care service from Sascron. I do not recommend this garage! Overall rating 0 star… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/03/2014

Wow ... basically the same as me except I had to put a new engine in my low miles, lovely looking Range Rover ... 45K mile car with a new engine ... doesn't feel possible. Warranty paid 5K of the repair so I was left with 6K out of pocket. Will not return calls, will not offer anything. I've never felt so completely hoodwinked in my life.

Frugle2's Response to Kalvinder's Review

Written on: 21/04/2014

My understanding is that you do not get after-care in this type of transaction, regardless of where you buy a used car from. If you want more after sales care you should pay for a longer warranty. Before you buy you should get an independent check on the car. Unless you have a crystal ball there is always going to be things that go wrong on cars, used or not.

With respect I have bought a car from a so called prestige garage and expected a quality product hence not undertaking an independent check. However appearances are deceptive and indeed a costly mistake made ! Why do sascron advertise number 1 for value & quality used car dealership in Hampshire clearly false statement ! Evident faulty car sold under false information given at the time of the sale. K

At the very least I feel like those on this site who have been completely screwed over by them should think about getting together and sharing the price of an attorney or registering a group complaint. I am happy to organize and I know the voice of many is much harder to ignore over the voice of one - be it at Sascron directly or to some authority under whom they should be monitored for unfair trade practices.

Hi - Likewise experience nightmare ! I have reported them to Trading Standards and they are looking into it . I advise you to report them to your local Trading Standards Authority and quote the Sales of Goods act 1979.
I am willing to register a group complaint with you
may be to Local Authority where Sascron is ?

Fact Sascron sell faulty cars and they should be investigated.

How did you get on with Trading Standards? I had my own shocking experience with Sascron. The worst human being I've ever met, foul mouth and arrogant attitude. The place should be shut down

“Poor customer service”

Written on: 20/12/2013 by Babaa (1 review written)

Sascron have a lot of good stock from the cheaper end to some very high end cars. My experience is related to the purchase of a car a little over £15k so not exactly bottom end. Positive points were good stock and good pre-sales customer service, but from the moment the car was paid for the customer service has generally been appalling. Whilst some issues have been validly sorted under the Sascron warranty, I've lost track of the number of phone calls/texts/e-mails it has taken on my part… Read Full Review

I had a issue with the car, they were happy to resolve it and I forgot my wallet there and came back all the way home which was 200 miles away. When I rang them to see if they can find it in the given courtesy car. They checked it all and found it and upon my request they sent me in the secure delivery. Nothing was missing all was good. Very honest people… Read Full Review

A friend recommended me to look on the website and I found a low mileage Mercedes C Class . The staff were very professional and courteous throughout the deal and I even got low rate finance and a decent part exchange price. I saved myself a lot of money against a main dealer. I would totally recommend this dealership… Read Full Review

“Would definitely use again”

Written on: 16/10/2013 by JonSamp (1 review written)

Bought a Range Rover Sport from Sascron last week, and traded-in my Audi A5. It was the first time I'd dealt with Sascron and I must say, they exceeded my expectations for a process that I was slightly dreading - all that hassle of negotiating a fair exchange price, and going through all the paperwork and handover changes. But to my very pleasant surprise everything was handled very calmly and helpfully and when the inevitable issues arose - agreeing a price to change, tax disk and… Read Full Review

“Happy ending - good result”

Written on: 01/10/2013 by IanNash (1 review written)

I bought a lower value car that turned out to have a rain leak and wet under carpets. It wasn't obvious. It was hard to engage a really active response from sales but once the manager was involved things got sorted out very satisfactorarily. Sascron spent more time than I would generally expect in such a case and actally stripped it down twice as the hose pipe test wasn't 100% on the first attempt. They also offered a free MOT to make up for the inconvienience. Given this was on a low value car… Read Full Review

“Please avoid! ”

Written on: 10/09/2013 by Smooth11 (1 review written)

Terrible after sales! They have no after sales specialist, only sales men - who have no interest in fixing your car....their only focus is selling more cars! Absolutely awful! Please be so cautious in buying from them - they are only out for one thing....your money. So disappointed - I wished I'd have read the reviews before I'd parted with my cash!!… Read Full Review

“Danger Never go”

Written on: 02/09/2013 by sandeepV (1 review written)

Please avoid them at all costs. They will try to take your money as a holding deposit and will not return it if you do not like the car. I have proof that they promised to return the money (it stated on the receipt "subject to viewing"), however, they are refusing to return my 500 pounds. I am taking them to court. If you want to buy a descent car please go somewhere else… Read Full Review

Sascron's Response to sandeepV's Review

Written on: 30/09/2013

Sascron are very confused that you felt the need to write this review.

Lets get the record straight with what actually happened here.
We agreed a sale over the telephone and you gave a £500 deposit to secure the car and take it off sale so no one else could buy it.

Then when you came to collect the car you changed the terms of our agreement and started your "haggerling process" trying to get more money off the agreed sale price.

At the point of depsit on the telephone we agreed the sale price,
when you arrived some days later to collect the car it seemed that you wanted money off just for the sake of it!

This is not the way business is done.
I hope this clarifies our position, should you wish to discuss, please do not hesitate to call me at the showroom.

Regards, Carl

Hi, I had gone to the small claims court, but filed it under their new name by mistake. So I decided to withdraw it. They have changed their company name to Sascron Ltd. So I have to file one under their old name, which I will do this weekend. I was out of the country for 5 months , hence didn't get time to file it straight away

Having found Sascron on the Autotrader site, I saw that they had the vehicle that I was looking for and in the right spec. Subsequent to an initial telephone discussion re the price they were prepared to offer re my part exchange vehicle so I would not have yet another wasted journey to a dealer, off I went. Further to a test drive, the deal re the sale/purchase was concluded in a very friendly manner by a very knowledgeable salesman and I went away a very happy individual, leaving them to… Read Full Review

“Great experience and after sales support”

Written on: 25/04/2013 by RobLeftwich (2 reviews written)

I recently purchased a BMW 330 convertible and was very happy with the overall process and especially the after sales support. We bought on the day, after the test drive, at what I felt was a very fair price and picked the car up the following weekend. The car has been great and the couple of minor niggles you always get with a used car they dealt with in a prompt and very professional manner. We dealt with Jason Turner, but whoever I spoke to has been very helpful. They have a great range of… Read Full Review
