“Avoid like the plague”

Written on: 18/02/2017 by Hayden1985 (1 review written)

Brought a car from them with the promise of a full service and cambelt change. Gave me a load of BS about the cambelt ensuring me it had been changed, so accepted. A few weeks after having the car had to spend £300 with my own mechanic as a wishbone was absolutely shot, the wheel was wobbling to put it in perspective. A few months down the line it breaks down on the motorway, my mechanic informed me that a glow plug had been stuck in the engine and an all mighty bodge had be done to trick the… Read Full Review

“Would never buy a car from here again”

Written on: 19/08/2016 by pbrandham97 (1 review written)

Days after passing my driving test I began to look at different cars and I came across Bellevue Garage on Facebook. I decided to go down to the show room and have a look at a Corsa 1.2 perfect for a new driver! Staff were so helpful and couldn't wait to sell me my new car. I collected the Car on the Friday afternoon and noticed 1 day later my battery light had come on. I took it back down to Bellevue and they were happy to help fix this, I collected the car the next day and noticed the light… Read Full Review

“DO NOT BUY”

Written on: 17/08/2016 by FranciscoPenn405 (1 review written)

I bought my car in September 2016 with a full service history and 12 months MOT. Within 10 months I have had to replace the two front tyres, windscreen, two front wheel bearings. I am told I need to replace the brake pads, clutch & Gearbox and two rear discs JUST to get through this MOT. Makes me wonder whether their MOT was even legit as this much should not go wrong with a car in less than a year with my limited mileage. I paid 3995 for the car which is now worth 2000. I have spent 1400 on it… Read Full Review

“Disappointed”

Written on: 07/02/2016 by 197Brown (1 review written)

They seem lovely while taking your money. A few issues.. 1- I was picked up by a lovely guy in an old Picanto which didn't seem roadworthy and had to use my own money for petrol to get us back to the garage as he did not give him any cash. 2- Less than 2 months after purchase, the brakes were completely worn down. Despite the MOT being clear. They did the MOT of course. Considering I spent so much money, it's disappointing… Read Full Review

7 times I had to return the car,most times for minor faults,very inconvient as I work long hours,even though I now have further problems I cannot be bothered to take the car back for further repairs,i only wanted this car for a few months as it was my intention to buy a far more expensive car as a retirement pressie to myself,to their credit the staff including the service manager were very polite at all times,but I am convinced they were aware of previous problems this car had… Read Full Review

“Brilliant service ”

Written on: 26/06/2014 by Lynne-marie12 (1 review written)

Bought my audi a4 in may had a strange issue with the car which was collected from me and the fault found and rectified with no fuss at all. The workshop manager came to my house and I live 25 miles from the dealership. Car was delivered back to me and I was given a car whilst mine was away so no disruption to my life. You have to remember that this is a second hand dealership and whilst I know they take every care to describe accurately they also have to take the word of the previous owners… Read Full Review

“Brought a £3000 car”

Written on: 31/05/2014 by Dannay418 (1 review written)

I brought a car this year. On the 9th day after purchase I had another garage see over the car. They found light damage and worn wheel. Took the car back to the car they fixed it for me under warranty. 4 days later my roof leaked I took it back to the garage they fixed it for me under warranty. At no time was any one there rude they remained professional even though they were busy with other customers. They told me my car was serviced before being sold this was correct as I had two mechanics… Read Full Review

“They are used car salesmen”

Written on: 10/03/2014 by ian992 (1 review written)

I purchased a BMW 520d about 3 weeks ago I was very pleased with the car however on a closer look it was blowing oil from a damaged dip stick I was told the car was serviced before I collected it this was not the case, simply I would say its ok to buy a car from them but get the RAC to check it first just to be safe on the day you collect it… Read Full Review

“Buyer beware”

Written on: 21/02/2014

For a business who in their own words, pride themselves on their reputation and after sales care I have to say they don't do a very good job of it. While the car seems sound the customer care was absolutely non existent. It just seemed as if they had sold the car, got their money and that was job done. For this reason I would not recommend this garage, nor would I purchase another car from them… Read Full Review

“Don't buy used cars”

Written on: 14/12/2013 by drpluspoint (1 review written)

Bought a landrover few months ago through finance . Costed me around 12900 pounds. The car started to show problems the same month. Initially problems with suspension and had to give it back to them for repair. This took a couple of days. And again now there is a major breakdown and problem with clutch system. Again left with them for repair and they want to charge me extra 535 pounds as it is not covered under warranty. Terribly upset with this car and the garage . Why should they sell such… Read Full Review

Bellevueman's Response to drpluspoint's Review

Written on: 02/01/2014

Unfortunately what has not been fully explained is that the customer covered 6000 miles in their vehicle and burnt the clutch out and damaged the dual mass flywheel.
We actually resolved the issue fully.
We were able to have the warranty company cover a majority of the total cost of the repair and we in turn picked up the shortfall ourselves that the warranty would not cover.
Not bad really, considering that it was a 'Wear and Tear ' matter and no fault of ours.

I have used Bellevue since passing my driving test 12 years ago ! Tony ( The owner ) has always given excellent service with an honest approach.

I have recommended many friends to this garage and they two have been very satisfied with the service given by all staff. All cars i have purchased… Read Full Review

Bought a car from here for £2350 the gearbox made a loud noise when changing into third gear at over 3000 revs, at first we were told that they would replace the gearbox but 3 weeks later, several visits and many phone calls they have said that they won't replace the gearbox basically because they can find nothing wrong with it… Read Full Review
