I've just completed a deal on a new Audi Q5. Having discovered Drive the Deal I was sceptical about the service they offered, particularly when I was told by 2 Audi dealers that there was virtually no discount offered on a new Q5. This was proven to be untrue when drive the deal came back with prices that saved me circa £3k on my vehicle. Once I was happy with the spec I placed the order with DTD. The main dealer contacted me the next day to discuss the vehicle spec and confirm... (read more)

I was a little apprehensive using a broker but the reviews on this site gave me the confidence to go ahead. We spec'd a Focus Titanium X and saved over £3000 on list and well over £1500 on the best offer we could get from a dealer direct. The process is amazingly simple and straight forward. After placing the initial order with Drive the Deal, all contact is with the dealer and both parties were very helpful throughout the entire process. I started by questioning whether I should use...

Just took delivery of a brand new Audi A8. I am truly enjoying the glory of being a small man driving a big car. From the outset: I saw the advert, emailed Drivethedeal (DTD), giving my deposit. It does promise me the money would only be taken by the Franchised Dealer that would want my business. Within the next 24 hours, a staff member of DTD emailed me with the specifications including the price and separately the dealer contacted me, specified the specifications including the price on the...

Ordered a Skoda on morning of 17th, and paid deposit by credit card. Tried to print the confirmation page, but DTD blocks that saying "this page is not printable", so took a screen grab instead and printed that. Expecting to hear from DTD the next day, or at least get an email acknowldegement, but nothing. I therefore called them on morning of 19th; they apologised and said they had 200 orders over weekend. What was my name? I told them, and they said they had no record. So gave them my... (read more)

1. The only thing which worried me was buying a car on the internet and handing over a lot of money with the possibility of losing the lot. I need not have worried at all, it all worked beautifully. 2. From the start Drive the Deal were very helpful and looked at a number of options. There was no pushiness or encouragement to spend more money. They answered questions clearly and truthfully (although I didn't know that at the time and was suspicious throughout). This was in contrast to... (read more)

Bought an Alfa Romeo Mito through Drive the Deal. The whole process couldn't have been simpler.... Ordered car on internet... Next day D-T-D called to confirm price and car spec....

I have been waiting a few years to be in a position to use DTD, having first come across some very positive reviews of them in Honest John's weekly column in the Telegraph Motoring section, and subsequently on his website. I think they were probably sick of me, as I went back to them with umpteen queries about several different makes/models, but on every occasion, they replied very promptly and were extremely helpful. In the end, my wife and I decided on a VW Golf Plus. We decided to sell... (read more)

Owing to strong demand, there was a waiting time of six months for the top of the range spec that I wanted. The Skoda dealers that I spoke to, weren't keen to offer a discount as they could sell all their stock at list price. Using DTD, I saved just over £4000 without having to negotiate with anyone. Once the price was accepted, all my dealings were with the Skoda dealer to whom I paid the deposit and the balance on collection. The dealer paid DTD. The DTD website is really easy to... (read more)

We bought our Volvo XC90 through Drive the Deal and saved £9500!!! We gave our local dealer the opportunity to beat or match the price but they said this was below cost for them.
