They wasn't pushy to buy the car but they always replied asap when i had a question or query. Over all they are an average second hand car dealership. There is nothing that made me think i will overly praise the company and there is nothing that would make me speak bad of them too.
Mr MW 02.53pm Sun 3rd November 2019 (1572792822)
Very pleased with the service
Mr DS 10.14pm Sat 19th October 2019 (1571523262)
Very good service.
I went into Clearwater with the intention of looking at a specific car i seen on the internet and i ended up looking at a few that was in there. They gave me the keys and let me have a look around the cars i wanted to look in. when i finished they was happy to answer any questions without any pressure of buying, i had then went for a test drive in the car i originally went to look at. I asked about certain service history and Clearwater done the checks for me and carried out the work that was needed (ie cambelt & waterpump) before i collected the car. The only thing i would recomend as an improvement would be to allow a longer test drive of the car to allow more of a feel for the car. The over all experiance is a 5 /5* experience and would recomend as a highly professional company from my personal experience.

The overall experience was very positive. They did all they said they would do. At times it was busy in the showroom but was always kept informed by courteous staff. Actual handover was quick and efficient.
Only slight moan was only provided with one key. To get replacement for spare is a hassle with £320 cost.
Mr CB 08.31am Mon 26th November 2018 (1543221080)
Honest company, no pressure.

Mrs AS 03.00pm Mon 15th October 2018 (1539615623)
Everything was done to a high quality from the test drive to picking the vehicle up spotlessly clean.

Mr DC 06.15am Sat 6th October 2018 (1538806541)
All negative .

MOT & Serviced my car before I bought it.

Obviously not done at all.

Front left alloy had huge crack running down it which I found after a week of ownership after taking to a tyre fitting company thinking I had a slow puncture.

The dealer fitted the tyre new before I bought it so they must of seen the crack. Worst part is that the crack was covered over with a black glue substance to hide and conceal it and luckily the tyre fitter spotted it and peeled the glue off in front of me.


Give car dealers the bad reputation they have

Asked for alloy to be replaced told me no won’t help so have spent £1000 on new alloy and will be taking them to small claims

Mr SH 08.16pm Mon 30th April 2018 (1525119417)
Sales representative was helpful and friendly. Could have more knowledge of the car and its features which would be helpful. Also I had to chase several times for updates as not very reliable on call backs. Aside from that, very happy with car and overall I think the company seemed to be fair and straight-forward. On that basis I would recommend this company to others. Thank you for the nice car.

Hi . I would like to say my experience was very good with this company.Sam was very nice to deal with and when I arrived they were washing my car a second time even after a full valet because it rained the night before ( This wouldn`t happen where I`m from) Overall the car was in excellent condition and still is!!! Even all the other cars in garage were spotless and in excellent condition.I`ve already told Sam I will be back in the new year for a car for my other half. I have already recommended this dealer to my friends....See ye next year guys....
Mr AB 10.17am Thu 21st September 2017 (1505989048)
The initial contact with Clearwater, and their representative Sam Wooldridge, was positive. They were recommended by my local garage and that was the main reason for going to them. However, the day after the purchase, and checking the car I had bought, I discovered a couple of minor issues. I rang to speak with Mr Wooldridge and had a promise of a call back to discuss the issues. Disappointedly, Mr Wooldridge did not ring back. I have since purchased the items in question and am arranging for my local garage to fit accordingly.
Mr PT 02.39pm Fri 8th September 2017 (1504881574)
Met Callum to view a vw Tiguan,there was no pressure what so ever,he suggested we take our time check it out and when ready we had a test drive.All our question were answered honestly,we bought the car which is an absolute jem.
I have bought many cars from many different dealers but never have I felt more comfortable and at ease,a genuine company of which I would be happy to use again and recommend to anybody that' wants a good car from a first class company.
Mr PC 06.46pm Fri 25th August 2017 (1503686816)
After visiting late one evening after work, all of the team at clearwater couldnt have been more accommodating. No hard sell, just factual and helpful with the information I required.

Test drive was all organized and facilitated well, and some minor repairs I requested were carried out without any quibble.

Fantastic job by the whole team at Clear Water.

We went to view a car and brought it the same day! Our dealer was extremely helpful when we were asking questions/sorting out the revelent paperwork for our car. The atomosphere is friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Mr LF 10.34pm Sat 13th May 2017 (1494714897)
The sales person was pretty good and the whole car buying experience was a pleasent one. No pressure and i was well looked after other than a poor trade in value for my second hand car! but happy with the new car. I would buy from them again
Mr RB 06.27pm Thu 27th April 2017 (1493317639)
The car was ready to view when I arrived, I was allowed to inspect it at my own pace, I was allowed to test drive when I was ready.
I was happy with the price and could arrange a warranty extension for a further 18 months.
Mr GP 03.47pm Fri 21st April 2017 (1492789626)
We came and picked up a car in November and it was having a slight squeak on suspension so they took it in straight away and gave me a courtesy car. The noise underneath since coming back seemed to get worse, the sales manager came to an agreement for us to swap it for something else on the forecourt with a difference to pay as mine had understandabley devalued since buying it. I am now more than happy with the new mini i have . I now feel i have peace of mind.
Miss ZD 02.05pm Tue 28th March 2017 (1490709945)
Possibly the best used car dealer I have ever used in over 30 years of motoring. Went to have a look at 3 Audi A1's they had in stock. Was quickly approached by sales guy Andy who gave us keys to all 3 and invited us to take as much time as we wanted to look round them all. He did not hover around and it was a completely no pressure experience. Having chosen the one we preferred we were given a test drive (with the Valet as chaperone). At this time the car had very little fuel and was on the red. Test drive over, it was time to talk about buying with our old Yaris as PX. We were offered a surprisingly good trade in on the Yaris and shook on the deal. As promised at the time, we were later contacted by Clearwater to say it would be ready for collection, having had a service and valet. When we picked up the car, the exchange was smooth and pleasant with sales guy Callum handling this with no pressure to buy extended warranty or GAP insurance. The car had been serviced which included new pads on the rear brakes, oil filters etc AND 2 new tyres which I did not expect. It also had a quarter tank of fuel and was immaculately clean inside and out.
Clearwater have a good selection of nice quality used cars to choose from, their presentation and customer service is excellent and I would certainly recommend them and use again myself.
Well done chaps, this is what buying/PX should be like everywhere.
Mrs KT 04.40pm Fri 17th March 2017 (1489768846)

Mrs JS 10.45am Fri 10th February 2017 (1486723518)
Absolutely delighted with the whole experience. The car is perfect. I love it. And the salesman could not have been more helpful. 11 out of 10 for it all!!

The team at Clearwater couldn't be more helpful I dealt with Andrew. He was a lovely fella and very professional. Well done to Clearwater
Mr HT 08.48pm Sun 30th October 2016 (1477860515)
From the start I was treated well, no pressure and was left to view car at my own pace. Once decided to do a deal it was dealt with in a nice manner every thing explained to me and any questions I had was dealt with. On the delivery day there was a slight delay and I was given £10 to have a breakfast at the diner near by (great breakfast I might add) by then the car was ready for me.
Mr MS 04.52pm Fri 21st October 2016 (1477068722)
I was impressed with the whole set up from my first visit to the conclusion of purchasing my car. I wasn't pushed in any way and was free to look round at my leisure,the staff were very professional and pleasant and I would recommend the garage to friends and family.
Mr TC 07.08pm Tue 18th October 2016 (1476817711)
Andy the guy who I dealt with could not have been more helpful. I felt overall my experience was 10/10. I have recommended this company to others and will definitely consider when I look to buy a new car. I cannot thank them enough. I love my car still. And appreciate all the help and advice given.

Mr ID 11.14am Sat 14th November 2015 (1447499649)
Previous review was based on a poor week, where negative feedback was given. Had an oil leak on the car 2 days after purchasing, Clearwater are sorting this for me and gave me a courtesy car to keep me on the road until my car is fixed. Gutted not to have the car but they have been good in rectifying the problem and keeping me up to date.
Mr GS 02.14pm Sat 17th October 2015 (1445091289)
I'm disappointed as I purchase my car from them and 3 days later it is in the garage as it has major pile leak which is only visible after the car has been driven. I'm still waiting for the car to fixed now, 1 week after I took into the garage.
Mr GS 09.56am Sat 17th October 2015 (1445075781)

I would like to start by saying sorry for the delay in getting this information across to yourself. I can confirm a copy of the invoice for the work carried out on the vehicle has been emailed to you to keep for your records. I hope you are enjoying your new car.. all the best the Clearwater Team.
Clearwater Automotive 11.06am Thu 17th September 2015 (1442487960)
When we viewed and declined the car we'd been interested in the sales rep asked us for more specific requirements, looked on his PC and found a couple of possible matches.
Mrs SN 09.38pm Sat 22nd August 2015 (1440279503)
I had a minor issue with the car, which has been resolved now, but it took a few days to get a response from Clearwater. Happy with car and the salesperson Andy.
