“Not happy when things don't go their way”

Written on: 19/09/2017 by Wiltuk (1 review written)

I recently asked Drive the Deal to quote me a price and finance on a new Suzuki Swift. Upon receiving the quote I did as I suspect most people using the site would do went back to the local dealer to see if they could beat it - which they did by matching the price and throwing in a couple of extras.

When the DtD advisor rang to follow up he did not take the news well and I found his attitude quite rude, telling me about how DtD had done the hard work which had paid off for me. While… Read Full Review

“Very Good prices”

Written on: 14/09/2017 by Balcombeite (1 review written)

Yes, I was apprehensive about using this type of service but everything turned out well. Ordered an Audi A3 S-Line Petrol automatic Quattro and it has just been delivered, - very satisfied. A couple of days after placing the order was contacted by an Audi main dealer and we verified the exact specification required and that was what got delivered with a saving of just under £ 5000 on the best price that I was offered through the Audi showroom. Will definitely use again… Read Full Review

“Excellent, pressure-free service”

Written on: 19/08/2017

Purchased a Suzuki Vitara through Drive the Deal in July 2017. Saved over £2500 on list price - local dealers were pushing PCPs in place of cash discount. All monies paid to the supplying dealer (who were excellent). Car was available from stock and collected 17 days after initial inquiry. My advice: ignore the marketing - cars are commodity consumer goods so buy one like you'd buy a TV or washing machine. Drive the Deal are a great facilitator of this model… Read Full Review

“The purchase of Hyundai i10 SE 5 Door Auto”

Written on: 12/08/2017 by 194Doherty (1 review written)

I purchased the above vehicle through DTD and saved a "bomb". Would recommend it to anyone looking for a new car. This is the second time in the past 5 years I have used DTD and the current purchase was delivered by transporter to my door at no extra charge. The process is easy to use and follow. If I am still around in five years time( I am 76) and DTD are still active I will use them again… Read Full Review

“drivethedeal is the real deal - does what it says on...”

Written on: 10/07/2017 by 73Hoover (1 review written)

This company has been around for quite a long time. It's been featured on TV and in lots of newspaper/magazine articles so I felt confident using them. They do not handle your money. They take your credit card number and give it to the franchised dealer you will buy from. Your money goes directly to the franchised dealer only, who presumably pays drivethedeal. I think they try to match you with a franchised dealer not too far away, and for me it was about 40 miles away. I'm used to haggling… Read Full Review

“First time user, and will use it again!”

Written on: 24/06/2017

I have been told about this site before, but always avoided it as just didnt think it could deliver on the savings its advertised. But after 3 friends told me they had used it and got good deals I finally took the plunge and I am SO GLAD I DID Service during placing order through the DTD team was excellent, pricing was a SIGNIFICANT saving on dealership price. I had no issues at any stage with the service or dealer I was put in touch with who gave me a service as good as going direct to the… Read Full Review

“fast, easy and cheaper”

“The best way to buy a new car”

Written on: 16/06/2017 by DavidLines (1 review written)

I have used Drive the Deal twice now. On each occasion I have found the service professional, trustworthy, efficient and, above all, it has provided me with the best price for the car of my choice. The web site is easy to use, if a discussion is required it is easy to access the help. The individual steps are explained carefully and accurately, the process is exactly as described. I have complete confidence in Drive the Deal, i have looked at other sites but found theirs the easiest to… Read Full Review

“Easy to recommend”

Written on: 09/05/2017 by Aniyaf210 (1 review written)

I found my previous new car buying experience at a dealer a right drag. Went in knowing exactly the car and spec I wanted and the price I was prepared to pay. Could have signed the deal in five minutes. Instead it took more than two hours to get the deal I was after - not because there was any negotiating going on. It was as if the salesman had to pad out the process to make it look (to his manager?) as if he had to work hard for the sale. So, quite happy in principle to buy my latest car… Read Full Review

“Very professional business”

Written on: 28/04/2017 by Young482 (1 review written)

I was initially a bit hesitant about using Drive a Deal because I'd only heard from them through the internet. I'm glad I overcame my reservations. They are a very professional outfit. They were courteous and very helpful on the phone and answered emails almost immediately. In the end, thanks to them, I saved about £700 on the next best offer that I was able to get online and a couple of thousand pounds on the price wanted by my local dealer. I'll use them again- definitely… Read Full Review

“Good saving, no problems”

Written on: 27/04/2017 by Calhounev353 (1 review written)

Saved around £700 on a Hyundai Santa Fe versus buying through a local dealer. Same delivery time, around 2 weeks. Only downside was delivery mileage circa 170 instead of single digit mileage, but for the saving I could live with this… Read Full Review

“Great Savings”

Written on: 23/04/2017

I saved nearly 20% on my new car. My local dealer couldn't even get close. There is no risk with this service as your car is sourced through a UK dealer. You may have to travel if you want to pick up the car yourself, but with the savings you make it's no hardship… Read Full Review

“Excellent serice and discount buying through Drive the...”

Written on: 10/04/2017

We bought our new car through drive the deal. The discount was better than we achieved direct from a dealer or via another car broker. Once the price was agreed we were passed to the main dealer and the buying process was the same as going to them direct. We were offered the chance to part ex our old car (we didn't) or to buy using finance. During the buying process we gave credit card payment details to Drive the deal so the dealer could take the initial deposit (which of course has the… Read Full Review

I have never bought a car via an internet service before and was a little nervous about doing so.

“So easy and with a great saving”

Written on: 09/04/2017 by GraemefromScotland (1 review written)

Bought a new Mercedes via Drive the Deal. Process incredibly easy from start to finish with great service all the way from both Drive the Deal and the supplying dealer. The dealer service was as good as I could expect with no difference in how I was treated despite buying from a broker. The car was delivered to me in the same manner as any other purchaser. As for the price, well I got a brand new 2017 model for several thousand less less than I could find on Auto Trader for a 2016 model with… Read Full Review

“Easy and stress free”

Written on: 08/04/2017 by mg55 (1 review written)

Decided to buy a new Mazda 2 before the April Road Fund price increase. After visiting my local dealership they informed me there was only one car in the country to my spec and they wanted me to sign up immediately. Unfortunately they could not get within £250 of Drive The Deal price so I decided not to proceed. A few days later I contacted DTD and they said they would check availability for March delivery. This they did and assured me the car was available to my spec. I paid a £500 deposit… Read Full Review

“Better than dealing with the main dealer yourself.”

Written on: 03/03/2017 by TJCee (1 review written)

Drive the deal are excellent, they basically do all the haggling for you. Bought two cars through them (Soon another one) and they have always acted in an exemplary manner. They are basically intermediaries. My last purchase had a problem (Mercedes) and drive the deal got involved and got it sorted with way more efficiency than I could as they new the right people to contact at the dealership. In my experience its like having a friend who knows he dealership , gets you the best price, and if… Read Full Review
