    Highly Recommended -Great Part Exchange Experience

    By Penny F on 27 July 2022 | Purchase not verified

    Great experience buying my new used car from Wateringpool Cars. Paul and Peter could not have been more friendly, genuine and helpful, and they really wanted to make sure I got the best deal possible. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or use them in the future. Many thanks!

    Straightforward easy peasy

    By Lorraine M on 06 July 2022 | Purchase not verified

    Straightforward people and a straightforward deal. Very easy to deal with from start to finish. Simply rang and left holding deposit, until the vehicle was available for test drive. Contacted when it was ready. Inspected and road tested. Paid up, tanked up and off we went home. What's not to like?

    Stay Away

    By Anonymous on 05 July 2022 | Purchase not verified

    Don't go anywhere near this place, I bought a car with a so called 3 months warranty They have a poster for Warranty Wise on the wall who are a reputable National coverage service. I had a fault and they insist I returned to them not go to a local garage as you can if they have registered you with Warranty Wise. That entailed four 80 mile trips to deliver and collect next day. Later after they fixed the DPF warning it started billowing black smoke , coincidence, reported this and told not covered but they will fix "at mate's rates" . So another four 80 miles round trips after a week they called to say found the problem and were waiting for a part a vacuum solenoid. 6 day's later called to say pick it up Saturday morning it's all fixed and running sweet. Paid the £640 bill supposedly discounted to £440 a and drove home. Guess what at home it's billowing black smoke, lift the bonnet to find 1 The protective cover of the battery positive terminal missing exposing 4 heavy duty cable connections to getting shorted. 2 The rubber tube from the air filter to the inlet manifold hanging completely off the manifold. 3 One of the small sensor hose's from the air filter box to the AGR assembly also not replaced and hanging down. 4 Nut holding Turbo boost hose solid plastic section missing Second mount point broken at nut fixing point. 5 The solenoid which is low down at the back of the engine on the Turbo had been changed but by simply pulling of the 3 small tubes and electrical socket and connecting the new one to leave it dangling and bouncing around behind the Turbo. As this has certainly Not fixed anything put all the bits back on the correctly mounted original. I reported and sent photos to them and so far no one has replied, not surprised at that. Now I am booked in to diesel specialist for minimum 2 hour investigation at £95 per hour+ more if more extensive dismantling required. As no error codes appear, best guess is Injectors £1600 or Turbo £2000 or Camshaft worn £3/4000 or all of them.

    By Gary S on 12 April 2022 | Purchase not verified

    5 Stars from me, the guys could not be more helpful or accommodating, and we would certainly recommend them. Helped to restore my faith in used car dealers after some bad experiences in recent weeks with others. Would happily deal with again once I'm finished with this car. Thanks chaps

    Mind boggling

    By Neil C on 07 February 2022 | Purchase not verified

    Called in to view a mini coupe they have for sale, told me they had nearly sold it previous day to a young girl but when she enquired about insurance it came back to much, so my partner (bev) and I started to look around the car, looked tidy enough, seller said it needs polishing but it is serviced and just had a 12 month mot ( number plate was broken In centre of plate which is a fail for mot) put on for girl who had left a deposit, sat in the car asked for key to start it, battery compleatly flat, puts booster on and starts, I noticed that the price was £7450, on auto trader its £7995. I just happened to say oh its £500 cheaper and as if by magic £500 on car again, now am there the car is running and moted, had driving licence with me I asked for a test drive, no, I needed to book an appointment because it needed checking over and I needed to pay £100 for test driving it, ??? Now, while I was checking the car out bev was talking to the other salesman and he was on about how we buy any car is ruining garages by buying every car they see and dominating the market, so I asked about my porsche, 987 boxster s 2005 55 plate 104000 miles 2 owner full service history car that's just had a service and has 11 months mot on it, he said it was to old for them and take it to we buy any car. Now my car is probably worth £11,000 on a forecourt with 3 months warrenty and I was ready to swap as I know garages need to make profit, they even tried to sell me aa cover and a warrenty for the mini knowing that the warranties don't work on cars over 10 years old so it's their own warrenty ie in house, that is not a company warrenty. Being honest the sellers were more intrested in the £100. Didn't even look at my car as it was drizzling with rain. Never heard so much BS coming out 2 grown blokes mouths trying to flog a car when one doesn't listen to the other and they contradict each other. Mind boggling

    Absolutely lovely people UNTIL you decide you don’t want to buy the car you came to view. We found a lovely looking car on the website, as we live 200 miles away which turned out to be a 4-5 hour drive, they talked me through a fully refundable £100 deposit which I did over the phone, super friendly guy called me back to confirm the £100 went into their account. We arrived and decided the car wasn’t suitable for us. His demeanour then changed, he shouted on the forecourt that he’s ‘absolutely flabbergasted’ that we didn’t want the £8000 car and wanted to know why. As I’ve grown up in the motor trade, I went on to tell him what I felt was wrong with it in my opinion and why the car wasn’t going to be suitable for us. Halfway through me pointing out various wear and tear on a car he described as ‘pristine’ he just stopped listening to me and proceeded to talk to my husband ‘I see you brought Hawkeye with you’. What a rude man! Clearly didn’t like a woman who knows her way around a car pointing out things to him. Had it been ‘pristine’ it would’ve been perfect for us. I accept that a car of its age and mileage would have fair wear and tear and had he met us half way on an offer then there’s no doubt that we’d have used the more saved on the screen price to do those jobs ourselves. Not that any of our reasons for saying no to the car should have mattered in regards to our deposit being refunded to us. He went against his word and turned from a nice chap into a rude man, if the car wasn’t suitable for us then that should be the bottom line and the deposit should be returned. He promised the deposit would be back in my account within half an hour, it wasn’t. He then promised that night, it wasn’t. After a few more calls and emails the deposit was finally returned to us the next morning. As for the actual ‘pristine’ car…. Needed a bonnet respray, drivers door was scratched, vinyl stripes were peeling, parcel shelf was taped in because the clips were broken (he said this wa
