“Efficient service and great value for money”

Written on: 25/07/2014 by Kayley327 (1 review written)

I had not bought a car on the internet before, and had some qualms, but buying a car through Dive the Deal turned out to be a very straightforward and efficient process. Drive the Deal staff on the telephone were very helpful and courteous and whole procedure went through without any hidden problems. I thought that it was excellent value for money - the Drive the Deal price for my car (a VW Golf) was better than that quoted by other internet brokers that I checked and substantially better than… Read Full Review

“Just do it.”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by Leekatron (1 review written)

I got the spec I wanted, the car I wanted and saved over £6000 on the list price of my Focus. Quite why you'd buy from dealer is beyond me. No catches and once you agree the price, you deal direct with a dealer as you would normally. … Read Full Review

“Cheap and straightforward”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by Cire (1 review written)

Drivethedeal helped us buy a Seat Alhambra. They responded promptly to initial emails and were polite and helpful on the phone. Ordering was very simple over the phone, and after that the whole process was dealt with professionally by the dealer: we were kept updated regarding the delivery time (the initial indication was actually longer than the final delivery time), the car was delivered at the time and location we wanted, and we didn't waste hours in car showrooms. The price was better than… Read Full Review

“Simplicity, quality service and the keenest prices around!”

Written on: 10/07/2014 by awGarrison470 (1 review written)

The main problem with Drivethedeal.com is that you commit to buying a car before you get a price for your old car. The dealer they put you in touch with may offer a half-decent price in exchange but there's no guarantee and this might reduce the great value you get on the agreed price. So you have to be buying either an additional car, first car or be content to sell your own privately. However, I have used Drivethedeal.com for both an expensive car (£33700 list price Volvo) and a cheaper… Read Full Review

“Impressed with the price and service!”

Written on: 09/07/2014 by Hillrn379 (1 review written)

I spent a long time looking at all the online brokers to find the best price available. I made contact with a couple in the end to discuss my potential purchase in more detail. I found drivethedeal to be the most competitive in terms of overall price, and having contacted them to discuss the vehicle in more detail found their knowledge and helpfulness to be fantastic. They were not pushy sales people, they genuinely knew about cars and wanted to make sure I was comfortable with what I was… Read Full Review

“New Audi”

“Simplicity and Big Savings”

Written on: 06/07/2014 by Charlysez (1 review written)

I researched loads of cars, visited loads of main dealers, listened to loads of....well let's call it 'misleading, best ever, one week only, if you leave now the deal may be finished when you come back 'offers' from smiling salesmen and women. But when you get home, sit down and add up the offers and subtract the price of trading in your old car too, the prices never came any where near Drive the Deals quotes. Essentially most of my local main dealers wanted me to give away my old car free and… Read Full Review

“Unbelievable deals on brand new cars”

Written on: 04/07/2014 by Arnoldsd359 (1 review written)

Don't be put off by the slightly dated look of the site, I saved over £10,000 vs list price and £4,000 vs the best offer from local dealerships. There is a (paid) option to get a quote rather than buying through the site, to allow you to use it to haggle with dealers (although my local Audi dealership couldn't get close on price, they confirmed that DriveTheDeal.com was a legitimate operation, appologised to me as I had been quite upfront about wanting them to match the online price, and then… Read Full Review

“Excellent service and great prices”

Written on: 03/07/2014 by 31Tucker (1 review written)

Drive the Deal quoted a substantial level of discount which I could not match elsewhere. As a result, I was able to specify a new vehicle PLUS all the options that I wanted for less than the price of standard spec used vehicles available from franchised dealers. The service from Drive the Deal was excellent as was that provided by their chosen dealer. Any queries were dealt with quickly. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

“Great service, repeat customer, recommend to all my...”

Written on: 01/07/2014 by Dominicn403 (1 review written)

Bought a Honda CRV in May 2014. Second time I have ordered through DTD - last time was at the end of 07. Great service both times. This time I was concerned about delivery dates - got a call back from DTD, they contacted the dealer and confirmed about 3 weeks to delivery. Car delivered on time, with fuel, clean and what I ordered. Saved about £2000 on best offer from dealer. I recommend DTD to all my friends… Read Full Review

“Excellent”

Written on: 25/06/2014 by SaigeBragg (1 review written)

I bought my previous car through Drive the Deal 13 years ago and was delighted with the service then. This year looking for a replacement once I decided on the make & model I contacted my local dealer for a quote and they were not able to come anywhere close to the price I was quoted through Drive the Deal. In fact they tried to imply that ordering a car through a website was often problematic and might not be quite kosher... Just as well I knew otherwise. This time again the service was… Read Full Review

Seems too good to be true but this is a great system to get the best price on your new car - brilliant 'auction' concept saved ne £3000 on my new Range Rover Evoque. Car was built to my spec with standard lead time. Disgusted with my local dealer who gave bad service and no discount... opposiye with the dealer that DTD found for me Highly recommended… Read Full Review

“Superb buying experience that I would highly recommend!”

Written on: 12/06/2014

I recently purchased a Citroen C3 through Drive the Deal, having never used an online broker before. Everything was very transparent and simple to understand, and the whole process was quick and saved me many £100's of pounds. The communication that I received from both Drive the Deal and the supplying dealer was the key, it was superb and very professional, and not at all 'pushy'. I would recommend that anyone gives them a try and sees what savings they could make over local dealer prices!… Read Full Review

“Efficient, simple, knowledgeable and trustworthy”

Written on: 10/06/2014 by RN78 (1 review written)

Following a recommendation from family we were confident that we would receive good service. We were delighted with the whole process from beginning to end. The website was simple to use and navigate around, when speaking to the team they were polite, helpful and knowledgeable. Plus we got a great deal on the car we bought! This made the whole process of purchasing our new car much more straightforward and there was no pressure or hard-selling. We will certainly use again… Read Full Review

Drive the Deal really do get you the best price,avoid any purchase pitfalls and warn you in advance of price rises and advise accordingly so you're always in the loop...Delivery times have been spot on too,on both occasions I've used them...The only glitch I had was a standard paint colour being priced as an extra but that was swiftly sorted… Read Full Review

“A perfect transaction”

Written on: 10/06/2014 by TedBash (1 review written)

I cannot imagine a simpler way to buy a car. Having researched the specific Ford S-Max we were looking for, we had prices from a local main dealer for new and, with a compromise on options, a Ford Direct vehicle too. The drive the deal website seemed to imply we could get a brand new S-Max with all our options for £1,500 less than the second hand one. If something looks too good to be true, it probably is. However, I continued the process and had a call from drivethedeal within the… Read Full Review

“Terrific deal and great service.”

Written on: 10/06/2014

We used Drive the Deal to get a good price on a Volkswagen earlier this year. They came up with the best price by quite a margin. Once we had the name of the supplying dealer they were our point of contact and really easy to deal with, totally professional. We really couldn't fault any part of the purchasing experience. The car is fantastic and we got a holiday out of the money we saved… Read Full Review

“Unbelievable savings - Superb Service!”

Written on: 05/06/2014 by 82Stout (1 review written)

After being offered only a paltry discount by my local BMW dealer, Drive The Deal came up with a very substantial improvement - over 20% discount off list price - and with absolutely no financial risk and no diminishment of service from the main dealer who supplied the car. Dealing with Drive The Deal is a no brainer!… Read Full Review

“Would use them again!”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by SimeonRoyle (1 review written)

I was initially a bit worried about buying a car over the internet, but the possible savings made me investigate further. Drive the Deal are not the cheapest deal out there, but you deal directly with a dealer and you are the first owner and registered keeper of the car. You also get the log book immediately. Beware the cheaper deals where this does not happen. I dealt directly with an excellent dealer who did everything that they said they would and when they said they would. I will certainly… Read Full Review
