It should be written into law that all car sales companies should deal with their public the way that Direct Cars do. I cannot buy from a company who just hang around and try to pressure you into buying a car you don't want. The service at Direct cars is exemplary. You can wander round all day long, ask for the keys to look inside any vehicle, and the staff are there in the background (not hovering) if you want any advice. I've just bought my second car from them in 3 years, and I wouldn't entertain looking anywhere else. Andy (our helpful salesman) was very courteous and professional. The pricing of our car was very fair and we felt Andy was completely honest with us regarding all our questions. Direct cars offered us very close to what we hoped for the trade in for our vehicle. Our trust in Direct Cars is such, that even though they're on the wrong side of Sheffield for us, we will only take our car there for it to be regularly serviced and MOT'd - because we know, they will do a thoroughly professional job.

Happy when I bought the car and Dave was very helpful but the issues I’ve had have not been rectified by the service department A key battery was changed to “sort” the key light problem; this has done nothing. The dash light turned up to sort the fact that the light was not coming on automatically The lady on the service desk was extremely rude

This is the second time that I have bought a car from Direct Cars and have, on both occasions, been entirely satisfied with my dealings with you. The vehicle and price of same satisfied my criteria completely and the staff could not have been more helpful and kind. Many thanks, until I visit you again on my next hunt for that perfect deal.

I have refrained from making an early comment in relation to Direct Cars. I now have had time to reflect, on collecting the car I was disappointed with the standard of cleanliness both inside and out, and presentation. I seemed that it was too much trouble to clean everything properly. My wife and felt the need to use a packet of hand wiped to clean the best we could inside the car before we travelled back to York.

I was promised that the log book would be taken to the local Post Office and the car ownership be notified to DVLA, it transpired no one could be bothered to do this either in the fortnight up to me collecting the car or on the day of collection. I travelled from York and had to go and find the local Post Office before I could start my return journey.

I was subsequently contacted by email to say the car needed servicing, I replied that I understood it had already been serviced at the point of sale. I have received no response from yourself except a text message still stating the service was due on the car????

I expected that as a car purchaser I would be treated a little better, as a consequence I have to report the service as poor.

We are sorry you are not satisfied with the level of service you received.

It is disappointing to read you were unhappy with the cleanliness of the vehicle. Had you raised this before leaving the site we would have rectified this to your satisfaction immediately.

Regarding taxing your vehicle, most of the time customers can simply tax their vehicle online using the reference number from the V5C/2. However, for any vehicles that have previously been tax exempt (like ex-Motability vehicles) they need to be done at the Post Office. We are not currently doing any trips to the Post Office due to COVID-19, which was explained at point of sale.

The car service reminder was due to an incorrect date being generated. The vehicle was serviced before collection at the service date has now been corrected.

Your feedback has been taken on board for the future and we hope you are enjoying your new vehicle.

We would like to thank all the staff at Direct Cars for the excellent service we had when buying our car. All the staff were very friendly and very knowledgeable and made the whole experience very relaxed and pleasant, we left saying to each other....."that was good". In these difficult times it is important to be comfortable with the systems and procedures in place to protect the customer and staff from the risk of catching the virus......we were impressed with the attention to detail shown and totally at ease. Thank you. Mr. and Mrs. Mears.

Quickest and easiest transaction I have ever had with regard to a used car.
On reflection I think the trade in price could have been better and your inclusive warrenty for a 3 year old car was a bit mean at only 30 days.

Despite the COVID situation, the sales rep Dave Milnes was very helpful with the sale and made sure the car was ready within a matter of days which meant a lot to us as we were going on holiday a few days later. The handbook was missing but a new copy was ordered and was ready 2-3 days after the sale. Roof rails had been ordered and put on by the time we picked the car up. Dave was not pushy at all about trying to get us to purchase extras though we did take out a 2yr extended warranty

Hadn’t bought a car of these since 2001. Have to say I was happy with my purchase with a small exception of a promise of a handbook/ service book package that was supplied later but from a much older model. I ended up purchasing one myself.

Very quick and easy process. Friendly sales person. You don't have to do anything but from my past experiences I expected a bit more discount or free something thrown in but didn't get anything.

Marvellous service. Nothing was too much trouble for Tom the salesman. Highly delighted in all aspects from first seeing the car to collection.

Fantastic experience from start to finish, was met by one of the staff called Thomas who was knowledgeable, friendly and not in the least bit pushy. He explained exactly what to expect and delivered as promised.

It’s easy to look around and keep social distance. Excellent sales people, who made us feel important. Ian was really helpful, and made the purchase uncomplicated.
