“Car Bought: Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.0L EcoBoost”

Written on: 27/08/2016 by Marleneb254 (1 review written)

I found the whole thing a good, straightforward experience. After accepting the quote, the dealership sales chap phoned me and we spent about 3/4 hour going through the initial paperwork (he then emailed me those docs so I could check them over). For reasons I won't go into, I wanted the car delivered to an address which wasn't my residence; this wasn't a problem. After that we communicated mainly via email (my preference). Delivery time was an estimated 10-12 weeks (actually 10 weeks). Shortly… Read Full Review

“Smooth Purchase”

Written on: 22/08/2016 by chrisbak (1 review written)

When we quoted the DTD price to our local dealer they said that no way could they get near that price and tried to scare us by saying that it would probably be a fleet car or import. None of this was true. The dealer was an authorised Mazda dealer just like them and provided the identical car at £1500 less than their best quote. The only downside was to take advantage of the reduction we had to travel over a hundred miles to the dealer… Read Full Review

“Very easy and helpful ”

Written on: 16/08/2016 by Leonard161 (1 review written)

If you know what car you want and don't want to haggle with a lot of dealers this is the best way to get the car you want for the best price,I must admit I was a bit concerned at first as not knowing anyone who had got a car this way before but if you're worried when DTD ask for your card details Don't be,DTD only give them to the dealer and they don't take any money until they have contacted you and you definitely want the car !! It's a shame I can't mention my dealer because they were awesome… Read Full Review

“Best place for a new Car”

Written on: 09/08/2016 by JohnBris (1 review written)

I have used Drive the Deal four times now buying four different makes of car. Always the price has been the best I could get and always I get first class service both from DTD and the main dealer who supply the cars. I don't understand why anyone would buy a new car without going through Drive the Deal. Long may it continue. Do not worry about the deposit being paid over the internet, it goes to the main dealer. After initial DTD communications all dealings are with the main UK dealer… Read Full Review

“Faultless”

Written on: 09/08/2016 by Annabella412 (1 review written)

My local main dealer seemed uninterested in a cash deal.I had never bought a car using an internet based service before but decided to get a quote after reading reviews. Drive the Deal negotiated a far better price elsewhere. The car was delivered exactly as specified on the expected date. I cannot fault the service in any way and would not hesitate to buy in this way again… Read Full Review

“Now driving the deal”

Written on: 03/08/2016 by Bingley76 (1 review written)

Using a third party to find a great deal was not something I had considered before but having experienced the service offered by Drive the Deal I have no hesitation in recommending them. The person I dealt with was very efficient and qouted a price that local dealers could not match.One dealer said 'if they can get the car at the price quoted snap their hands off. He phoned me a week later expecting me to say that the deal wasn't available but, of course, it was. The whole buying experience was… Read Full Review

“Unbeatable prices, excellent service.”

Written on: 14/07/2016

I have used DTD twice now and will use them again as well as recommend them to others. Massive savings beyond what a dealer can offer are a no-brainer.The website is very good allowing comparisons and accurate configuration of a car. If you need to speak to someone they are very knowledgeable and patient. I had reservations about taking out a finance agreement then quickly settling it. They explained the possibilities and likely costs in a helpful and patient manner. The dealers on both… Read Full Review

“Purchasing a new car”

Written on: 12/07/2016 by LilianaBanks (1 review written)

Buying through Drivethedeal is straight forward and completely safe as no money is handed over to the broker, but all financial dealings are with the main dealer supplying the vehicle. Also all prices are competitive with no haggling and you could be saving a substantial amount off the list price. I am happy to recommend them… Read Full Review

Our family has bought four new cars via DTD since 2003, including 2 delivered in the last two months. In every case the DTD price has been the best we could find, and the service from DTD and their supplying dealers has been excellent. … Read Full Review

“Great service and the best price”

Written on: 15/06/2016 by Gravesxi348 (1 review written)

Seamless and straight forward from beginning to end. The whole process is so much easier and far less time consuming than doing the usual song and dance, only to be told by a local dealer that they cannot get anywhere close to DTD's price - even after having knowledge of your price expectation from the start of the conversation... DTD saved me approx £6k compared to the best dealer quotes on my VW Golf, with no difference in the ordering/delivery process - that's a no-brainer to me! Bravo DTD… Read Full Review

“Excellent service from initial enquiry onwards”

Written on: 15/06/2016 by J_RAC (1 review written)

I bought a new car through Drive the Deal in September 2009 and when I came to replace it as well as helping my son to buy a new car for himself it was an obvious choice to check DTD again. The delivery service was a big improvement on the collection service available last time and worked really well. Both DTD and the dealer were really good in responding promptly and accurately to all my queries. I have no hesitation in recommending to others. Finance options and add ons were clear at all… Read Full Review

Great service from beginning to end. I can highly recommend Drivethedeal. Everything worked as promised from taking the deposit to the delivery of the new car. A little nerve racking at first because you don't deal face to but all went very smoothly. My next car will be bought this way. Thank you Drivethedeal. … Read Full Review

“So much less hassle than going to a dealership”

Written on: 07/06/2016 by joejoejoejoejoe (1 review written)

I wanted a C4 Picasso. So I first went to a local main dealer, test drove the car I wanted. I had cash to buy it outright. We then sat down, I told him what options I wanted, he went off to get me a quote (10 minutes), came back with a quote with £2000 of extras on it, no options, I said can you quote me without those and with the options I wanted (lots of umming and aahhing and you really do need a £500 fancy carpet pack or else your kids will die then 10 minutes wait). He came back with a… Read Full Review

“Support during ordering period”

Written on: 03/06/2016 by Pollock285 (1 review written)

The DTD site is clear and allows comparison of makes, models and options. Placing the order is straightforward, as is the transition to dealing with the main dealer organisation. However, my reason for writing this review is that the ongoing support provided after the transition has been excellent. In my case an anomaly between DTD's description and the main dealers interpretation of a manufacturers deposit contribution for one of the longer periods of HP finance available - wherein the dealer… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/05/2016 by McFadden46 (1 review written)

We have bought both our cars from Drive the Deal. In each case we got a much much better price than the local dealer offered - and so we were able to get a better spec car than we originally intended. It was easy dealing with the dealers, despite them not being local, and there were no hidden costs or other problems… Read Full Review

What a simple way to buy a new car. With DTD behind you, I felt I was in control. The customer service from the dealership was excellent and I was kept fully informed over the whole process. The interaction with DTD was seamless and efficient, queries were dealt with promptly. The savings achieved were great… Read Full Review
