Absolutely Amazing

You can not fault this garage, everything went perfect, no pressure when buying, car is 10/10 quality, I have been well looked after and even the delivery driver was friendly! Thank you to everyone at the garage!
Mr Mordecai, 07 Aug 2020

Excellent Service

Excellent service throughout - from first arriving to view the car, through a second viewing and on collection. This is a superb garage, with high quality cars and brilliant, no-pressure service. They answered all my questions and found out additional information whilst I was test driving the vehicle. After first viewing the car, I then emailed late on a Sunday expressing the desire to place a deposit and received a text almost immediately. The team kept me informed as various items on the car were tidied up and they could not have been more helpful. There is a great atmosphere in the showroom and they could not be more helpful or accommodating. I’m really pleased with the car and would recommend anyone to check out this garage when buying.
Mr Ludford, 08 Aug 2020


Excellent service from first viewing to vehicle collection. Would highly recommend!
Miss Higgins, 08 Aug 2020

Amazing Service

Fantastic company to deal with nothing is to much. They take the upmost pride in their work. We ended up purchasing a car from here and will definitely be back again when its time for a change.
Mrs Davis, 10 Aug 2020

First Class Customer Service

We bought a Polo for my partner and could not fault the guys at the German Car Group. After having a horrendous experience at a VW main dealer it was extremely refreshing to deal with a garage that actually cared about customer service. There is a no pressure selling attitude which is great but the guys were always on hand to answer any questions we had. Car was professionally prepared throughout the week with numerous updates throughout which was also a very nice touch. On picking the car up it had been very nicely prepared and we were given plenty of time for the handover to happen and not feel rushed. Honestly can highly recommend these guys for buying a car, you won’t be disappointed. First class customer service makes a massive difference and these guys do it perfectly. Thanks once again.

Great Service

Really helpful staff and service. Went out of their way to ensure I could access the car I had chosen, even after I had broken my foot! Faultless and very helpful.
Mrs Walters, 19 Aug 2020

Excellent Car Buying Experience Once Again

As a returning customer, once again the service was absolutely phenomenal. The sales team could not do enough to make the sale/ admin/ and collection of the car anymore enjoyable. The lads were top class. It’s so nice to see a business and team of employees delivering as agreed and to an exception standard. I would recommend using the GCG to all who really want to enjoy the experience of buying a new car.
Mr Wilson, 28 Aug 2020

Excellent Service

Excellent service,very friendly good knowledge all round package,extremely well presented car.would highly recommend this company.
Mr Barrow, 30 Aug 2020

Top Notch!

Hassle free from the beginning. These guys always have immaculately presented cars and give a top notch buying experience. I have dealt with them twice now and although I didn't buy the first time round I had no hesitations to return when I had a bigger budget and got the right car at the right price. Always helpful and very friendly without the pushy sales so often found in other dealerships.
Mr Dacre, 03 Sep 2020

A Stress Free, Enjoyable Experience Buying A TT

I spotted an Audi TT on the Group's website and was happy to reserve it before seeing it knowing how popular the TT is. I wasn't disappointed when I saw the car. I gave it a test drive and bought it on the spot. The car was given a full MOT, service and thoroughly valeted inside and out and the team went the extra mile to ensure I was able to drive away with my personalised registration. There was no pressure to sell and team couldn't have been more helpful, in stark contrast to some of the bigger dealerships.
Mr Neal, 04 Sep 2020

Amazing Staff And Amazing Car

From beginning to end Callum was amazing and honest throughout. I cannot recommend them highly enough
Miss Parkinson, 06 Sep 2020

Would Highly Recommend This Dealership

I bought a car from these guys in Sept 2020 and I cannot say enough good things about my experience. I'm in Ireland so I was naturally nervous about being messed about. Adam was very honest, professional and diligent. I put down the initial £100 deposit then he send videos of the car and went through all the details both good and bad, told me what was going to be fixed up and done with the car next, in terms of engine servicing and body work. 2 weeks later the car had been MOT'd, serviced, alloys refurbished, and any marks on the body touched up. 'A' sent me another video and went into detail on everything that had been done and stayed true to his word with everything. I put down an additional £400 deposit to hold the car in the UK until I could get there to pick it up. With the warranty, only difference being in Ireland, was that I had to find a warranty company myself here. I met their transport driver at Holyhead port, Fell in love with the TT and took it home. Thanks so much Adam
Miss Kavanagh, 07 Sep 2020

An Excellent Experience

Great communication. Particular thanks to Calum who was professional, courteous and helpful.
Mr Atkins, 12 Sep 2020

Car Buying Made Easy In Devon And Nationwide

Friendly, professional service from the salesman who I am not allowed to name in this review. Mr C you know who you are. If you are looking for a low mileage, Merc, Audi or VW you should check out their website. No hard sell, just a chance to buy a quality used car at a good price. The car I bought was exactly what I had been looking for. Because I live locally I was able to take it out twice for a proper test drive; three times allowing for my ignorance of how to set the suspension to Comfort. The salesman allowed the car to sell itself and then had it prepared so that it was in showroom, as new condition when I picked it up. Came with a 6 month warranty and 12 month MOT. A real bonus was that they fitted 4 new tyres without asking and included within the agreed price. Highly recommended.
Mr Bourne, 15 Sep 2020

Most Honest Sales Team. A Pleasure

⭐⭐⭐They deserve this!⭐⭐⭐ Arrived today and I can't thank them enough. Within a hour of enquiry I had a video of the car and his complete honesty about the car was greatly appreciated. It needed some work which he sorted extremely quick. We had constant contact over the last 10 days were he supplied all the relevant updates and answered the hundreds of questions I asked. A day before delivery multiple photos and another video sent to me going over every single minor detail to make sure I was happy. The car is great and I am extremely happy. The real pleasure however was dealing with such a honest and attentive salesman. If you love your German cars I can't recommend this company enough! 🥇
Mr Green, 17 Sep 2020

Excellent From An Independant Garage

Excellent service received, this is the second vehicle we have bought from the German Car Group, very helpful and kept updated all the time
Mrs Doige, 19 Sep 2020

Family Car Purchase

Me and my wife came down from Bristol and test drove/placed a deposit on a VW family car. I was drawn to the car initially by the quality and quantity of the pictures online from the website. The staff were friendly, not pushy and very accommodating. I was kept updated throughout the sale and me and my wife came away very pleased. I highly recommend The German Car Group to others. Thank you!
Mr Sealey, 23 Sep 2020

Excellent GCG Service

Great dealing with the team at GCC. Their customer service is second to none and all cars are meticulously prepared. We part-exchanged 2 cars for one and the transaction was seamless. Thanks very much and highly recommend these guys.
Mr McCollum, 04 Oct 2020

Brilliant 2013 Audi A4 Avant S-Line Black Edition

I read the reviews of German Car Group, and based on this I spoke to them (A&C) , they were extremely professional and provided me with a detailed video of the car. Based on this I traveled the 112 miles to view the car (after securing it with a £100 refundable deposit). Upon arrival I was welcomed and shown to the car where I was allowed to wander around at my leisure, any questions I asked were confidently responded to and we discussed the preparation of the car and what would be carried out, EVEN delivery to my home!!! I was really impressed with their attitude and customer care which was outstanding!!, the communication by them was second to none, and another video was sent of car and after preparation for delivery, even photo's of it loaded on the delivery truck. The car arrived on Thursday then on Monday the V5 was on my door step. I have already recommended "German Car Group" to some friends of mine. to sum up,Brilliant car/ communication/ customer care/after sales service.
Mr Mould, 06 Oct 2020

Mr Salter, 09 Oct 2020

Pleasure To Deal Wit, 100% Recommend

The German car group were a pleasure to deal with. Their sales people couldn’t have been more helpful, regularly checking in, sending me videos of the car and I am so pleased with the video I bought from them. I actually went to a VW dealer as well as GCG and I’d much rather deal with a garage like this, the service and deal I got was 100% better.
Miss Brown, 10 Oct 2020

Superb, Pinnacle Of Customer Service

I cant describe properly how good the team are and have been at helping me into this car, I saw the car 2 weeks ago on a Saturday evening, sent over a quick email and got a response back within 8 minutes. At the start I thought it was an automated response but no, it was actually the sales agent responding to a potential customer at 9pm on a Saturday evening while the footy is on. Absolutely set the standard for customer service. The car, well what can I say, they got it serviced all around, fresh tyres and brakes, DSG service, videos of the updates, pictures of every aspect of the car, completely and utterly made me the most confident in dealing with them, can not say enough how good these people are especially after i havent even test driven it beforehand. I had no worries at all and will buy from them again without any hesitation. I have been working in Customer service for 6 years, and this is absolutely top notch, hand on heart.
Mr Kasim, 10 Oct 2020

Really Good Buying Process

Very well looked after. No pressure in sale process at all and car presented very well.
Mr Carpenter, 11 Oct 2020

Superb Customer Service From Beginning To End

Absolutely brilliant to deal with from start to finish. Really friendly service with regular updates as the car was being prepared for sale, to a very high standard. Had a very minor problem with the air con afterwards but they found a reputable garage near me (Bristol) and covered the repair cost/paperwork directly with them. They also took the time to offer a fair and considered trade in price for my old car, rather than just plugging the reg into a computer and leaving it at that. The new car is fantastic and I'll definitely be coming here first when on the hunt for the next car!
Mr Adams, 15 Oct 2020

Outstanding Service And Quality Of Product

Hundreds of miles separated me from the seller, but I was given outstanding service, comprehensive details, videos and updates and every query was answered promptly. The salesman dealt with me like a family member and the car was suitable delivered exactly as specified. Superb all round service, vehicle and attention to detail. Can’t thank them enough for the help they provided. 5* is fully deserved!!

New Polo

Recently purchased a TSi Polo from TGG - lovely car, beautifully presented and the sales process, despite the Covid situation was very easy, and the car was delivered to our door fully valeted. The car did develop a small problem but Adam had the car collected, the issued resolved and delivered back again. Excellent service and excellent back-up, would highly recommend.

A great pleasure to inspect, test drive and buy my Audi from this dealer. Excellent service from start to finish. Would absolutely buy from here again and fully recommend to others.
Mr Plympton

Superb Customer Service From Beginning To End

I made a telephone enquiry regarding a car which I had seen on their website, was told that someone was due to view the car that day, they rang me later that day to let me know that he didn't turn up. I viewed the car the following day it was everything that was stated on the website. Car was very well presented in superb condition with no pressure what so-ever to buy. On collection of the car my phone was linked the the car system, shown all the features the car had , nothing was too much trouble ........ a truly faultless customer experience .... TAKE NOTE MAIN DEALERS THIS IS HOW TO TREAT A CUSTOMER...!
Mr Hill

Professional and pleasant people to deal with.

Very professional from the outset. Was not pushy when we said we had another vehicle to look at. Car was very well presented and was ready to drive away when we went back to buy it. Young salesman went through all the functions of the car which took a good hour. Car came with 12 month MOT, 12 months warranty, RAC Rescue and half a tank of fuel. Would definitely consider buying another car from them.

Mrs Docherty

Take Note Other Dealers

Professional, punctual and personable. I found my experience with The German Car Group easy and clear from start to finish. I find buying a new car stressful and am wary of pressures from salesman, but here the experience was stress-free, all finance and paperwork was very clearly explained, their patience and desire to find me the prefect car was most re-assuring; the absence of pressure made the whole experience very enjoyable! I was looking for a specific car (Audi A3 Automatic in Black/Grey) and was struggling. I live 2hrs away and with Adam's help within 2 weeks I was happily driving away in my gorgeous new car. When handed over, the presentation of the car was infallible, the exterior - beautiful and the interior just flawless. Very honest and professional in all areas, RAC Approved and a RAC Warranty is confirmation of the standards of this dealership. Would definitely recommend.
Miss Harris

Mrs Ansley

Bought car unseen, car delivered - Pleased!

I wanted to write to you to say a HUGE THANK YOU to The German Car Group for the way they handled our purchase of an Audi A3. We live a 5 hours drive away from this dealership and saw the car online. Having never bought a car before without having seen it in person we admit we were slightly nervous. The fact that the German Car Group is RAC approved and comes with RAC BuySure gave us some level of comfort in buying an unseen car from them. After speaking with them our concerns were further allayed and we are grateful. Now that I've had the car for a few weeks, I can say that I'm very pleased with it. The condition is exactly as described and we appreciate the two new tyres you put on. I've found The German Car Group helpful, trustworthy, non-pressurising and a pleasure to do business with. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. Thank you,
Mrs Makkan

Mr Gorzelak

Professional, helpful, quality buying experience.

I bought my new car from The German Car Group in early August 2018. The salesmen was really helpful & easy to deal with. I like that he never tried to hard sell the car, just gave me honest information and provided all the available purchasing options. The car was immaculately presented on test drive & pick up. I travelled from Cornwall so they were kind enough to provide the car with a full tank of fuel on pick up. They also extended the warranty to 1 year as I wanted to have some piece of mind about the longevity of the car. The battery (which was still the original) died a few weeks after purchase but they refunded 50% of the cost of the new battery without any quibble. Excellent experience & very professional - I would definitely recommend.
Mr Collins


Everything that it says on the tin" and more...We cannot emphasise enough how great our experience of buying a car through the German car group has been. They are extremely helpful and professional. In the past, we've always dreaded buying a car, but now that we've found these guys, we will definitely be returning to them. If anyone out there has any doubts, put them aside and know that you can completely trust these people. Many, many thanks.
