    Howe Motors Ltd

    By Ian W on 14 January 2016 | Verified purchase

    Buying a car from Howe Motors was a great experience. There was no pressure selling and I was allowed to take the car for a test drive on my own. I arrived late at the garage and they stayed open late for me as I had travelled a long distance. There was a minor fault with the rear suspension bushes however they paid for the diagnosis of the fault and the repair. The car was perfectly presented when I received it. I would recommend Howe Motors Ltd and will use them again in the future.

    A friendly professional service

    By Wilf B on 07 October 2015 | Verified purchase

    From initial viewing, test drive and workshop checks, this was a pleasant experience. We got a good price trading in our old car and our new car was immaculately presented and competitively priced. I have no hesitation in recommending Howe Motors.

    Very highly recommended motor dealers

    By Raymond M on 12 September 2015 | Verified purchase

    I’ve bought two cars from Howe Motors in Barry and will not hesitate in buying more from them. You are never pressured, always able to browse without being hassled by commission hungry salesman. If you ask about a vehicle you get the full history, vehicle specifics and plenty of time to test drive and inspect the vehicle properly. All the cars are presented to the highest standard and usually come with full dealer service history. Both of the vehicles I’ve bought from them have been flawless, and when one had a minor issue they bent over backwards to get it sorted for me the same day. Very highly recommended and professional motor dealers. 10 out of 10.

    Our 2nd purchase from Howe Motors

    By Rose G on 23 June 2015 | Verified purchase

    This was the second vehicle we have purchased from Howe Motors (we live in North Devon so travelled approximately 140 miles). We have received excellent customer service - having purchased our new car there were a couple of issues i.e. the spare key did not work and we discovered that the Sat Nav dvd was badly scratched and only worked for a short distance on our journey home. Both issues were satisfactorily dealt with, Howe Motors ordered a brand new spare key and disc for the Sat Nav. The Salesman was always helpful and kept us fully informed at all times so we are very happy customers and we love our new car!

    Very disappointed the way situations handled by Dn in HOWE's Motors in Barry. Refused to refund my money. The money was taken to secure the car for viewing but the car was not ready for the appointment. When the appointment was cancelled by me,Dn refused to refund. appalling.

    Reply from Howe Motors Ltd on 04/05/18

    Dear IrwinZ I’m very sorry for the confusion and the delay in dealing with this. We do ask that people actually view the car before we refund their deposit, but in this case, as we didn’t manage to have the car prepared to the standard we require in the time available, the mistake was obviously ours and we should have refunded the deposit at that point. This has now been rectified and the deposit refunded. We apologise for the confusion. Thank you for taking an interest in the car. Yours Cer Howe (Owner)

    Open and honest human approach

    By Andrea M on 11 February 2018 | Purchase not verified

    Our daughter purchased her first car through Howe Motors; we couldn’t be happier with the service we received. From the first telephone conversation with Dean and simple £100 deposit, to the human, open and non pushy welcome again from Dean (plus the rest of the gents) who looked after us with humour and honesty. We travelled from Bristol and will without a doubt make Howes the first port of call when our other Daughter is ready to upgrade her car later in the year. Many thanks for the excellent service, the hug wasn’t bad either !!!

    Dream car found in Barry

    By Nigel B on 01 December 2017 | Purchase not verified

    Found an immaculate Audi A8 here. Actual photos and online description matched the car perfectly. In no way disappointed upon viewing (as is normally the case at other adverts). Car was pristinely presented, checked,valeted no obligation test drive,(any distance) no pushy sales jargon or pressure. Salesman was excellent in manner and personality, very knowledgable ( for a self proclaimed "anti -salesman"!). Could not fault the guy or the garage. Best car I have ever owned or driven. Took a look at other cars for sale there, all of the same calibre in condition.Couldn't recommend Howe Motors highly enough. Have bought many used cars over 30 years, this garage shows them all how it should be done. Outstanding.

    Appalling customer service

    By Robin C on 16 October 2017 | Purchase not verified

    I put a deposit on a Howe Motors car on the understanding that the sale would be completed when I'd sold mine. I kept them informed of progress but when I sold my car and called to arrange pick up I was told they'd sold the car to someone else and refused to return my deposit. Absolutely disgraceful customer service.

    Reply from Howe Motors Ltd on 19/10/17

    Thank you for your review, which you uploaded three days AFTER we returned your deposit. You agreed to buy the car on 13th May 2017. Some FOUR MONTHS LATER you were still avoiding completing the purchase and NOT informing us of your progress. And all this time, the car was depreciating. As a result we re-advertised the car and sold it to a customer who was serious about buying the car. In our opinion, your wife was keen on buying the car, but you weren’t, and this reflects in the way this saga played out. Adding insult to the financial injury you caused us, you decided to leave this review. Thank you so much for that.

    A problem with the used car that we bought from Howe Motors Ltd was solved today, and dealt with to our satisfaction. Thank you to Andy and Mr H.
