“You can get a good deal from buy a car provided you...”

Written on: 14/07/2009

You can get a good deal from buy a car provided you are patient enough -delivery time around 3 months !!!
You are a second registered keeper (owner) and they keep the Log Book for another 6 months after the car with you ( possibly causing problem if you plan to go abroad).
Customer service- calls not returned in many cases, best email… Read Full Review

“Buyacar are a web based company that use their...”

Written on: 19/06/2009 by mooseman100 (2 reviews written)

Buyacar are a web based company that use their purchasing power to buy new cars from dealers, and then sell them on to us public for a realy good price. The downside of this is that Buyacar must register your new car in their name originally, so even though you have a brand new car, you come on the log book as a second owner. They also "look after" your log book for you for six months, so you don't then just sell the car on for a profit.

I ordered a brand new Ford Fiesta Titanium, with loads… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/05/2009 by fitzy06 (1 review written)

The price is great but be warned about this. The V5 Retention period isn't legal (been in touch with DVLA and they said that its a legal requirement for the seller to send the new owner details asap) read what car article http://www.whatcar.com/news-special-report.aspx?NA=225709&EL=3198198 for more information. I tried asking for my V5C docs informing that I've been in touch with DVLA and told them that its a legal requirement to send V5 for update. I got a rather pleasant email back saying if… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/05/2009 by jamesgore (1 review written)

Like any sane person I was worried about spending this much money online but it went very smoothly. Mine was a stock car and a pre facelift model so the savings were very high.
Even being as honest as I could about my part exchange condition not being a car expert I thought they might quibble about my part exchange price after picking it up but there was no issue.
The car was driver delivered and was probably more dirty than it should have been, but came up sparkling when I cleaned it.
I will use… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/04/2009 by JohnJamesWorrall (1 review written)

Just had to add my experience to the board. I have taken delivery of my new car today and the experience at Buy A Car has been a simple and painless one.

I was looking for a decent sized estate car with low emissions. Finally settled on the Citroen C5 for a number of reasons, not least the fact that the car was £4000 less than list. I went to the local Citroen dealer, who stated that he couldn't get anywhere near that price and that I should be carefull as it was so cheap.

I ordered my car… Read Full Review

Very helpful staff at Buy A Car who did exactly what they said they would when they said they would do it.
The registration document was sitting on our doorstep on the day we collected our car.
This is the second time we have purchased a new vehicle over the internet and I have to say that buyacar will be top of my list next time we do it… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/02/2009 by Paulux (1 review written)

I had considerable doubts about buying something of as high value as a new car over the Internet, although I buy smaller items regularly. Especially as the price has to be handed over in full, and cleared, before Buyacar will deliver.
I checked all the web feedback and reviews I could find, and came up with no show-stoppers, no negatives of any real concern, and plenty of positives. I called Buyacar and asked how they can supply so cheaply, and the response was that they buy so many that they… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/10/2007 by richarduk (1 review written)

One mistake I made was not workout all my questions for them to start with. I was a little in the dark at the start of the process but that was more down to me being too excited about getting a new car not to ask the questions I should have. But they always answer the phone when I called and put my mind to rest. They give good feed back via email and emailed me with no prompting from me with the final delivery details… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/09/2007 by car07 (1 review written)

We had faultless service from buyacar.com. Right from the initial contact to the delivery of our vehicle, we had excellent service and communication from the company. The staff members that we were dealing with were polite, informative and courteous.

Our trade in was competitively valued (could have been more of course...) and our new purchase was offered to us at a price that was lower than our local dealership.

We would not hesitate in recommending buyacar.com to our friends and family… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/09/2007 by murrayaj (1 review written)

Buyacar offered a far better discount for my VW Passat Estate than any dealers could. They had a slight hiccup with their supplier which caused a couple of weeks delay whilst they sourced another one but they kept me up to date and the car was delivered at the new specified date/time. I found their service to be good, their prices excellent and their sales people very helpful. I will not hesitate to use them again… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/08/2007 by Chris The Ninja Pirate (1 review written)

I was surprised to read the negative reviews of buyacar.co.uk - not my experience at all. I ordered a car at the end of May, because the price was cheaper than anywhere else. I was told delivery would be the start of July. To be fair, I didn't really hear anything from them for a couple of weeks during which I guess they could have kept me more up to date with the order, but it duly turned up and was actually a few days early before the end of June. Personally, I thought it was a good… Read Full Review
