“If i could give 0 Stars i would!”

Written on: 19/08/2011 by Kenny-boost (1 review written)

I have
owned 20 cars in my life, thankfully I did not buy a car from croft trade
centre, but after my experience I felt I should post a review of my
experience ... I went to view a golf after driving a family members
for a few days and enjoying it, so called up Croft Trade Centre to ask
about a golf they were selling and was told that the car was
"immaculate" and lovely, I asked a LOT of questions and explained I
was coming over 200 miles to view the car and really didn't want my time
wasted. I was assured that I would like the car. I drove the 250 mile trek to
view the car, this can only be described as the worst condition car I have ever
seen.



The
car firstly had a flat battery, the staff came over with a booster pack to
start the car, revealing when the bonnet was up that there was no air filter on
the car. Further to this the remote central locking did not work. On getting
into the car I found there was no stereo, no gear knob, and even the door
handle to close the door once in was missing. Next I inspected the passenger
seat which was covered in mud and sitting at a strange angle, on touching the
seat it fell into the back of the car - it was not mounted to the floor! On
looking round the outside of the car I noted a flat tyre and 2 bald tyres. The
brakes looked dubious (later transpired to be not working) and there was a
steel wheel on the rear passenger side, the rear passenger side also had
blatantly hit something and been badly painted over, you could still see the
top to bottom crease through the new paint. I opened the boot and lifted the
carpet and found the missing alloy wheel, smashed!! clearly this car was a
write-off that had been VERY badly botched back together for Sale.



I
confronted the sales person with my findings, I was VERY upset that I was lied
to in order to get me to come look at this car, to add insult to injury I was
told the stereo must have been pinched while it was in their locked garage and
there used to be one in it! ... I was offered £50 off the car to cover the
stereo and that no more would be given off as the car was priced to sell, I
made my anger clear to the arrogant young sales man who took it in his stride,
looking at the other write-offs they were selling I know this was nothing new
to him.



This
company are poison to the car trade and once there name gets out there they
close down and open under a different name to hide their shame, these people
and the cars they sell are dangerous!
