    We didn’t have a great experience with Four Friends Motors. We put a £300 deposit down on a Yaris Hybrid pending an RAC check. Vijay was helpful and friendly whilst organizing the check. Unfortunately the check demonstrated multiple problems with the car, which were flagged by the RAC as requiring attention prior to purchase. Also, annoyingly, the RAC highlighted the car had 2 previous owners – 1 previous owner noted on the V5C, and the current holder of the V5C. We were specifically looking for a car with one owner from new. Vijay argued because the RAC report said there was one previous owner – this was correct – however, this is not how other garages seem to report previous owners (if you didn’t count the current V5C holder many used cards would need to be advertised as having 0 previous owners!)We offered to show Vijay the RAC report, but concerningly he didn’t take us up on the offer (and it will be relevant / highlights necessary repairs prior to selling to the next person). Also the car was advertised as having had a recent service, but several of the fluid levels in the car were too low or too high according to the RAC report – suggesting this wasn’t the best service. We asked for our deposit back from Vijay, but this was a difficult process. Initially he sent us £200. And then after we protested he sent us the other £100. He said the advert had needed to be reposted on autotrader, hence he would be docking our deposit £100 – however I viewed the advert several times in the interim between us putting down the deposit and us asking for our deposit back and it was still online and visible. The process of getting our deposit back wasn’t very pleasant – Vijay was abrupt on the phone and sent text messages in block capitals saying he doesn’t need our money, before sending the final £100.I’m not sure if some of these issues might have been honest mistakes or misunderstandings on Vijay’s part. Vijay – I think it would be much clearer if you advertised car’s previous owners including the stated owner of the V5C – otherwise it’s confusing and people will not be getting what they’re expecting. The offer stands if you would like our RAC report in case useful to check the car over before you sell it on. For anyone dealing with Four Friends Motors, we would recommend you double check things and ask for clear confirmation in writing that you will have a deposit returned if you don’t proceed with a sale. I would also recommend getting an RAC check.

    Hello there, I would just like to clear a few things. Firstly, the car has only had one previous owner unlike what you stated saying there were 2 owners. This was clearly stated in the logbook. I sent you photos of the logbook to clearly show that there was only one previous owner as you seemed confused when first explained. It is also said in my advert that there is only one previous owner. You also stated that you gave me a £300 deposit but i have returned the deposit. The car is over 8 years old of which i have a full service history with 9 service stamps in the book. I sent proof of all of this to you through the use of photo. Even though, i allowed the RAC inspection report it will only go to the customer not to myself. I had a brand new inspection and MOT done (with no advisory). I urge you to read my advert before you go ahead with an inspection, however this does not seem to be the case in this circumstance. Thank you for your feedback.

    Hi there, we have over 80 photos for each car and we recommend you look at it carefully. It is likely that you mistook the advert as we check our cars regularly.

    Most kind and sincere seller

    By Kenneth U on 11 June 2023 | Purchase not verified

    Thanks, Vijay for your good customer care service, and sincerity. Came to me as was described. I didn't have to go for an inspection or test driving, sent him over 40% of the cost and the car was delivered at the exact time he said it would. I am so much happy with my lexus is250 and would recommend this awesome seller.

    I relatives recently bought a car from this dealer and I was with him as well .but very disappointed. Sales man was very unhelpful, he doesn’t want to answer any questions ask, just say” like it or take it “. Running away from us . He just wants mmoney from us. No quality service , unprofessional.

    Reply from Four Friends Motors on 02/02/23

    Hi there, we are sorry to hear about your complaint. However, we feel as though you may have misunderstood our services. Many other reviews have stated good service so it likely that this instance may be because of miscommunication. We hope you had made an appointment as that is where you are able to ask questions freely. We never intend on seeming unprofessional or unhelpful as we do our due diligence when explaining and helping customers. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. Thank for your feedback, Mr Vijay.

    Poor Service

    By Kenny D on 11 January 2023 | Purchase not verified

    Tried contacting this dealership numerous times without any response. Waste of time and effort. Poor service.

    Reply from Four Friends Motors on 16/01/23

    Hi there, as said on my advert you should make an appointment before appearing on the site. Our showroom is always open (7 days a week) and you are able to view all cars as you please however, if you want a test drive or inspection you will need to book a slot beforehand. This appointment system has been in place since the COVID pandemic, as we do not want many people on site all at once. We hope this clears up any confusion you had and furthers your understanding. Thank you for your feedback, Vijay.
