    The Best Car Buying Experience Ever!

    By Tim C on 26 January 2017 | Verified purchase

    I recently purchased a 10 year old BMW 325i SE Auto (E90) from this Company, having found the vehicle on Autotrader. The Sales Advisor I dealt with was Scott McClaren and I have been so impressed with the service rendered by this wonderful gentleman that I felt compelled to put my thoughts into print, such is the degree of my satisfaction. This man is a consummate professional and a great ambassador for this firm, and indeed the used car industry. They clearly know what they're doing as the whole experience and transaction was without doubt the smoothest I have ever been involved in, and I've owned over 30 cars down the years! From the first instance of finding the vehicle, then negotiating the price through to collection Scott McClaren has been a pleasure to deal with, in fact I would go as far as to say that we have become friends. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Active Automotive, and Scott McClaren in particular, to anyone looking for a replacement vehicle.

    Phone Phone Phone

    By Peter D on 20 June 2018 | Purchase not verified

    Dont just turn up like i did expecting that the cars advertised on the website are for sale. Its now 2 days after my visit and they are still advertising Black Audi A5!!

    Reply from Active Automotive Ltd on 21/06/18

    We understand Peter's disappointment in missing a fantastic value A5, but unfortunately or fortunately any vehicle can be sold at any time! We do commit to holding a vehicle off sale if someone has committed to their journey, but i guess this doesn't help if there has been no communication with us before hand. I'm sorry but we can't apologise for selling a vehicle, after all that's what we're here to do, however we will look at trying to get vehicles removed more efficiently from our adverts and promotions, once they have been delivered/collected. We hope Peter finds the car he's looking for soon.

    Exellent and friendy experience from Sc**t

    By Geoff K on 27 April 2018 | Purchase not verified

    Bought an Audi A3 soft top from Sc**t, it is outstanding, Sc**t was very helpful from the start to the finish , nothing was an issue and everything he said he would do happened. The whole experience was so simple. I would buy again from him for my next purchase.

    How a dealership should be. Friendly not upushy

    By Stu P on 06 April 2018 | Purchase not verified

    From start to finish he was great. I called up as I had seen a car that I was interested in and arranged a test drive for the following week (hoping the car was still available). He called me a day before my visit as I was travelling around 40 miles, to confirm my arrival for the next day. When I arrived i received a friendly welcome. I had a look around the car and while i was awaiting a test drive offered a drink which I thought was a nice thing to do, as these things can take along time to process. In the end I brought the car but due to a bank holiday weekend funds did not transfer as quick as we would hope, but he was understanding and we kept in contact. Finally I got to collect the car, given a 3 month warranty with 12 months breakdown cover and they did final check on the car to make sure I was happy with it. Overall not pushy, just very friendly and help you all the way. Just how it should be. Thanks for great customer service. Stu

    FANTASTIC SELLER AAA+++++++++++ Highly Recommend

    By John D on 11 March 2018 | Purchase not verified

    The End of January I purchased an Audi A5 2.0 Tfsi The seller Scott was great and very helpful me and my wife spent quite a lot of time trying to choose but we decided on the Audi. After a few weeks I noticed the car was using oil so I called them and they said ok we will send me a replacement car why mine was check out by Audi Milton Keynes which checked it out but after a few weeks it was returned to Audi and it was fixed with no hesitation James was so helpful the service they showed me was impeccable I would give them 10 stars. I would highly Recommend ACTIVE AUTOMOTIVE LTD If you are looking to buy a car or van I will most definitely use them again! Thank you for a great experience to all the staff.

    You could do alot worse than Active Automotive

    By Russ H on 23 December 2017 | Purchase not verified

    Hi,found the renault twingo GT on auto trader.The car was previously £2500,but had been reduced to £2000(the dealer has to inflate the cars worth on the first price to be able to claim it has been reduced to the lower price,which is nearer to the car actual worth) A 2 hour trip in traffic had us arrive at the dealer.The sales man was a really pleasant person,very approachable.How ever the vehicle was rather a letdown ,on the web pics the car looked very bright and polished under the electric lighting,in day light a close inspection... side panels and bumpers had many,many scratches(the rear bumper quite bad on both corners)yes,some may buff out but many had gone through the silver paint to the base layer.The passenger door pillar had been sprayed silver (badly) at some point .From cold a smell of petrol from the exhaust seemed to linger.Over all the car just seemed unloved at some stage in its life.Inside was not the cleanest,for condition not that cheap. My opinion only.

    It is always difficult to manage customers expectations, especially when looking at a 9 year old car which had covered 57000 miles, we felt this car was in superb condition for both its age and mileage and still stand by this. Unfortunately Mr Customer had to travel some distance, so we held the car off sale until they arrived, but quite clearly from the offset this was not going to be the car for them. In our experience it is frustrating when customers make such a commitment to view a vehicle and it doesn't meet with their expectations, however this vehicle was fantastic value and in superb condition, indeed within half an hour of Mr Customer leaving it was sold, to an extremely satisfied customer who took delivery immediately. We hope Mr Customer finds what they are looking for.

    Still early days but so far very pleased with purchase. These vehicles are very well presented. They are what they are and are priced to sell so don`t expect big price reductions. Clive , the chap we dealt with, is very helpful. He applied no pressure. We travelled from near the south coast and are glad we did.
