    I really wanted to leave a 5 star review as the guys are nice, and up until I bought the car I would have done... I visited the Car Arena just after lockdown eased, and the lockdown was the reason I was given for the battery being flat. The car was jumpstarted and the test drive went well. Shown the service history book and all MOT history so paid deposit. Purchased and collected the car a few days later. Once home I checked through the paperwork and the service log book was missing. They said they had it and to come and collect it. Arrived to collect and no one knew where it was. Still waiting for someone to get back to me. A week after purchase I went to start the car and the battery was flat. Called the AA who upon testing it said the battery wasn't working properly and that I needed a new one. Contacted the Car Arena again to chase the service book and raised the battery issue with them. No response. Hugely disappointed in all that followed me handing over payment.

    My experience was extremely satisfactory. The service was fast & efficient. Hayden was very helpful and quick at responding to my queries over email & text. My car was delivered to my door step as I requested. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

    Very good experience

    By Sara S on 30 October 2019 | Purchase not verified

    Very good experience of buying a car from here. It was all straightforward and no pushy sales. There was a minor issue which would not have come up in the pre-inspection but the manager was very apologetic and paid for my local garage to fix immediately . Would definitely purchase from the Car Arena again.

    By Peter W on 13 October 2019 | Purchase not verified

    My experience with The Car Arena was very positive. I had a 4+ hour journey to see the car, upon my arrival I was met straight away, took the car for a test drive and purchased shortly after. The car was presented in a good clean state. Thank you.

    By Paul M on 20 August 2019 | Purchase not verified

    I bought a VW golf about a week ago now, lovely car, a few small things were all sorted before picking up the car. I found the sales person and all the staff there helpful and friendly. They have some very nice cars for sale and would recommend looking in.

    Excellent car buying experience

    By Judith B on 09 August 2019 | Purchase not verified

    Purchased a Mercedes SLK 200 at the end of June and would just like to thank Car Arena for great customer service. The process was smooth and hassle free. Found out after a couple of weeks the rear parking sensors were not working. Contacted Car Arena and  they put me in touch with Kams Servicing Nuthall who also gave great customer service, the problem was fixed and new parking sensors fitted all under the warranty that came with the car. Certainly would recommend. Thanks again everyone.
