Audi Brighton were great because of great service and super product!

The experience at Volvo Eastbourne was great because of the courtesy of staff being friendly and the salesperson actually came out into the car park where we were looking at some models. And offered us to see more of selection in the showroom. From our experience of other dealers I feel Volvo has kept the professional attitude toward customer approach and with no pressure to buy. But offered us the quality and safest car available today. It was that that made us to make a choice on the V40 at our budget rather than selling over our limits. The sales person I like to mention and would recommend Mr Paul Matterson did an excellent job to make our choice. It’s is because of these excellent service I would recommend anyone to buy from Eastbourne. Since after delivery we have gone back to thank them personally.
