My experience at Skoda Tunbridge Wells was positive because I was shown the car I wanted to purchase and not a superior model.

I would recommend Volkswagen Brighton to friends and family because they took our needs into careful consideration

We had a flawless experience throughout, Sam (our salesperson) was extremely helpful and walked us through the process, he found the exact model and spec of car we were after. Car was delivered to our house immaculately presented, did the final paperwork over a cup of tea and are now part of the VW group! Couldn’t thank him enough, even in aftersales making sure we were completely satisfied with the car (which we are)!

The staff at Skoda Tunbridge Wells were good because the salesman was thorough throughout the experience and took time to explain every aspect of the sales proceedings. Many thanks to mr. Jim Davies.

Volkswagen Eastbourne were extremely helpful because I urgently needed a car to go to work and out of all the other dealers Volkswagen Eastbourne was the most helpful. Steve Hewitt managed to get the car released in 24hours after test drive and I believe he is very professional and put my needs first. I still talk about the service I received from Steve and use it as an example during briefing with my staff.

Friendly helpful staff,very pleased with the car

Volkswagen Eastbourne were really helpful and I'd recommend them because they delivered excellent customer service. From the moment we booked the test drives of the two cars we had chosen to the delivery of the vehicle we decided on. The whole process of choosing and purchasing the vehicle was communicated in a clear and concise manor from start to finish. We explained to the salesperson our car criteria wish list and our budget and with both parties being flexible i was able to purchase the car i liked best within budget. I would defiantly return to the dealership when the finance period is up for review. 5 Star celebrity service
