Testimonials

The whole Lighthouse cars team were excellent especially Scott who was knowledgeable and friendly, great service!

MATTHEW S, EAST SUSSEX


This was by far the best cat buying experience I'd ever experienced! S was friendly, helpful and knowledgable - with absolutely no hard sell or routine sales pitch... He took the time to listen to what I wanted and we narrowed it down and found the perfect car - once we had chosen, the paperwork, sorting out our old car and all the things that usually add extra hassle we're all taken care of by S quickly and efficiently and we were ready to drive away the next morning! I couldn't recommend this place highly enough - go here before you go anywhere else!

SIMON J, SUSSEX


Lighthouse Cars were happy for us look around at their vehicles with no pushy sales chatter. We chose a four year old Jeep to test drive. Then spent time talking with the dealership owners and left to think over our decision. We decided to purchase the Jeep. Lighthouse Serviced, MOT'd, Taxed and delivered what looked a shiny new car. We cannot fault their service.

DAVID H, SUSSEX

We found Lighthouse Car Centre really trustworthy and knowledgeable - and very patient when we weren't quite sure which car we were after! We would definitely recommend Lighthouse Car Centre.

SARAH, SUSSEX


I needed a car urgently...and by some miracle they had just the right one..and in my favourite colour. They recently helped an elderly friend choose a car and I really feel they are to be trusted. Efficient helpful and charming - the give car dealers a good name!

PENNY, MARVELLOUS


I was warmly welcomed when I showed up to view a car I had been interested in. I was able to look around the car inside and out. I booked a test drive and took the car out for a spin before I made my decision whether to purchase the car or not. Once I was happy I was able to put a deposit down and secure the car.

SAMUEL M, WEST SUSSEX


Excellent choice with excellent service - bought from them before and delighted to go back to them!

RICHARD M, SUSSEX


Very helpful and friendly again 4 car in 25 years

CLIFF DYKE, SUSSEX


Immediately welcomed. I was made to feel comfortable asking all relevant questions and they were answered informatively and clearly. Unfortunately, the day after driving the car away, there was a completely unforeseen mechanical issue. HOWEVER, the team at Lighthouse Car Centre went completely out of their way to collect the car from where I was, provide a no-quibble courtesy car, got the issue fixed, and I had the car back by the end of the afternoon! ...That's service. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone and I love the car already! Many, many thanks, Jules :^}

JULIAN, SUSSEX

Would recommend this company to anyone. My experience was exceptional; really friendly people who made me feel at ease when looking at cars with no pressure. Where keen for me to know about the car that I eventually set my sights on. When decision made to purchase a fantastic Mazda 6, a minimal deposit was required which would have been refunded if I had changed my mind, which I was advised I could. On day of pick-up the car came with a new service and MOT, along with plenty of fuel. So pleased that I found this company. Thank you

Established family run car trading company. Helpful without being pushy. We had a personalised registration on the car we were trading in..They took care of all the paperwork which made the sale and purchase very straightforward..Our daughter bought a car from them 16 years ago and had a good experience which is why we went back to them. We would definitely recommend them as you ha ve a more personal interaction than with larger dealers.

GLENDA S, SUSSEX


A great family run garage. Cars are reasonably priced. Staff are friendly, there is no hard or up selling & they let you decide at your own pace. Staff are knowledgeable and give honest answers to any questions you might have. Would thoroughly recommend

NIAL S, SUSSEX


Great experience from start to finish, extremely professional. Everything was very straight forward with a no pressure approach from sales. There were two reservations about the vehicle that I voiced to Scott the salesman which he quickly remedied within days supported by photographic proof for peace of mind, I’d definitely recommend this company, a little far away but definitely worth the journey. Many thanks Scott & Light house cars

Great experiencing buying a vehicle from Lighthouse Car centre. Very comfortable dealing with Scott from the very first moment I spoke to him. Went up to see the vehicle from London on the worst day for weather but Scott picked us up from the station and made myself & my family feel comfortable. The vehicle itself is in very good condition, A* all round!!

ROOPESH D, LONDON


Friendly, helpful, efficient without being OTT. From the test drive to collection, I felt valued as a customer and any queries were answered without fuss. This is how buying a second hand car should be!

I have used lighthouse cars before when I bought a BMW, and was pleased with the service.

KATHLEEN, SUSSEX


Thank you for your help recently when the clutch on the Landrover Freelander we purchased from you needed an expensive new clutch just outside of the warranty period... your offer to organise the clutch replacement and make a substantial payment towards the cost when you had no legal obligation to do so was very much appreciated... we would not hesitate in recommending your company as a very honest trader and one we would not hesitate in doing business with in the future. Thank you David and Janet

DAVID AND JANET PATTENDEN, SUSSEX


We were really happy with our experience,the staff were very helpful and made us feel they genuinely wanted to find us a car we would be happy with. We wouldn't hesitate to go there again if we needed another car.

DAVID M, SUSSEX

T ROGERS, SUSSEX


Honest, pleasant and simple no hassle process. The car was very clean and they provided a new MOT with 3 months warranty. Very happy with my experience with the Lighthouse Car Centre

ENZO, SUSSEX


Was looking for a small reliable car. Was met by a salesman who was very helpfull and not pushy. He explained what met our requirements and left us to have a good look around. We chose a car and Scott Did an excellent job, sorting out and completing all necessary paperwork.

COLIN G, SUSSEX


Cant rate them high enough. Was given a good price on my vehicle and sorted my new car within a few days. Very friendly and helpful. Would recommend them to anyone.

DEAN T, WEST SUSSEX


I was treated with courtesy, my budget was taken in consideration when showing me different vehicles. I was helped in the office with sorting out all the documentation relating to car tax, MOT, and so on. This is the second time I have used the Lighthouse Car Centre. The first time was 7 years ago, when I purchased my first vehicle from them. No doubt, I'll be there again in future if I need a new car. Good service, experienced staff, fast and efficient in sorting out last minute details. I certainly recommend it as one of the best and most reliable used car retailer.

DAVID C, SUSSEX


Friendly service.very helpfull.guided me through the exchanging service.

VICTORIA T, SUSSEX


Lighthouse were a ... lighthouse amongst the rocks of car supermarkets. Our Nissan Juke had extra spec (sunroof, red body pack) and about £1K less. No admin fee, 3 months warranty and even re-did MOT and service before we picked it up, plus fair price for our Fiesta p/x. Car drives really well. Great service, thanks.

JON C, LONDON

CATHERINE, SUSSEX


Very helpful :) they stayed open later for me as I saw the car late and was desperate for a test drive! Smooth transaction they put a fresh MOT on the car. Will defiantly be coming back in the future if I need a new car :)

PETER S, SUSSEX


Good choice of stock, keen to explain the details of the vehicle, sensible negotiation and ready when stated. Made light work of the administration.

GREG H, SUSSEX


Excellent throughout, most helpful and obliging, with a good product knowledge. This is the second vehicle purchased from the Lighthouse, and if this is as good as the last we will be very pleased. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and all minor faults were dealt with promptly

CLIFTON B, SUSSEX


The staff were helpful and knowledgeable, and well attuned to our needs.

JON B, SUSSEX


I part exchanged my car with Lighthouse Car Centre for a more "family friendly" one. The offer I was given was fair and the whole process was very easy. The new car itself was given a new MOT and was taxed for me and is in perfect condition. They even offered to top the tank up with diesel with an amount I was happy with paying which made driving off with my new car a breeze. Overall very nice people to deal with, felt looked after and feel they offer good aftersales care too if anything did go wrong with the car. I'd recommend using this company and wouldn't hesitate to return in the future.

GEMMA S, SURREY


Great service, really friendly staff and excellent servie??????

RICHARD M, SUSSEX


Selected the car on AutoTrader website, found it matched well. Staff allowed me to examine car without hassle, and sat in while I did a test drive and were able to add more details as we went. In all, a comfortable and unpressured experience.

JOHN BARTLETT, SUSSEX


Scott was very helpful. H was not too pushy, but was very well informed about the car and how if would meet our needs. I would Recommend him and the business to friends and family.

JEANNIE S, SUSSEX


They were excellent and made the whole process very smooth with no problems. They handled everything regarding the purchase of my car very professionally

STEPHEN E, SUSSEX


Buying a car from Lighthouse Car Centre was a pleasure ! The process was friendly and helpful with no pressure or heavy handed "salesmanship"! The service was excellent, helpful and efficient . Many thanks !

FRANCES T, EAST SUSSEX


I went to the lighthouse car sales, on recommendation from a work colleague, i looked on line and saw a ford b max unfortunately it had been sold the morning before I arrived, Scott then showed me 4 other c max and let me browse at leisure, with no hard sell which is a nice change from most car salesmen , unfortunately none of them had all of what i was looking for, i then went back to Scott an explained my disappointment, still no hard sale , he then said keep looking on line and what i am looking for may come up , i was just leaving when he said I may just have what you are looking for and showed me a Nisan Note giving me all the information and he was right it fitted exactly what i wanted and a bonus, very low mileage, some time after i purchased it there was a fault i took it back and they arranged for it to be fixed quickly and efficiently with one day warranty remaining

PETER B, SUSSEX


Friendly and helpful. Did everything they said they would do. It was all very straightforward. Very pleased with the car. I would highly recommend this dealership to others.

STELLA W, SUSSEX


excellent, friendly service, I shall not hesitate to recommend them to friends, family and customers.

jJ.PENFOLD, SUSEX


Very helpful company, nothing was too much trouble as I was wanting to buy and drive away the same day once we agreed a fair deal, which we did. They work as one big family and it shows in their service which was excellent. David from Swanage.

D ANSGOOD, SWANAGE


From the minute I initially called I was dealt with in a very professional and polite manner. I bought my car and went to collect it on Sunday afternoon, after a longer drive on the way home I noticed that the car had a fault. I called Scott on Monday and mentioned this and he was extremely apologetic, within 10 minutes he had called me back and had booked the car in for Thursday. He lent me a car whilst mine was being repaired and when I went back to collect the car after the repair Scott apologised again for the problem. I have found them to be very honest and trustworthy and would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone looking to buy a second-hand car.

DARREN C, SUSSEX


I phoned in the morning to ask about viewing a car and was able to do so pretty much straight away. Told them my needs for the car and asked about affordable finance, all of my questions were answered by a very knowledgeable and friendly staff member and extra info was given too. The car was perfect for me and they had it MOT’d for me immediately, passed with flying colours. They sorted out my finance application and all of the necessary paperwork and I was able to take the car away the same day. They even topped up the oil and put a bit of diesel in for me. I took my little boy with me, we were made to feel so welcome. It was a very busy day but all of the staff remained professional and just lovely, the perfect experience. I had issues with my previous car and the purchase of it. I felt so reassured from start to finish with the team at Lighthouse Car Centre and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable car and fantastic service!

JENNA C, sussex


First class service friendly and very help full car delivered as requested

MICHAEL B, SUSSEX


I was introduced by a neighbour who was very positive. I was looking to change a 10 year old Mazda 6 for something newer. I was originally interested in another Mazda 6 they had, with all the boys tools on board. Then looked at a 2014 Volvo V40 excellent condition but no parking sensors or satnav. I then found a 2013 Toyota Yaris in polar white with 27,000 miles on the clock and a FSH, with parking camera and Satnav. Lovely car, I was sold. The sales person was helpful throughout, never pushy (I would have been gone immediately). Answered all my questions positively, and actually helped me make up my mind on the smaller car. I already know I made the right decision. The paperwork was dealt with professionally and swiftly. Picked the car up the next day, with a new MOT and two new tyres as they were an MOT advisory. Not what all traders would do. Left with an overall feeling of being well treated, and would certainly recommend them.

JOHN B, SUSSEX


Scott was very friendly and welcoming, and not pushy at all. Fantastic service from start to finish, I will definitely recommend Lighthouse Car Centre to friends and family!

KAYED S, SUSSEX


A very pleasant experience considering I was spending money. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Third time we have purchased cars from them.

IRIS Q, EAST SUSSEX


Got my second car here and will definitely get my third. No pressure, but readily available if needed. Their service is second to none so if you need a car come here.

DAVID C, SUSSEX


Very good service, helpful, great car selection. Thanks

CHRIS G, SUSSEX


I had my eye on a little VW .polo so myself and partner popped in. We spoke to a guy buy the name of Scott. He got the keys for us and simply left us alone. Well we bought the car and due to other commitments the said they would deliver it for us latter. Absolutely brilliant and they did with a full valet. Thankyuou Scott.

JAMES D, SUSSEX


This garage is one of the good boys .Great people.Honest and definitely go out of their way to help you. My new car is amazing and actually exactly as described in detail. Once you talk to them you know you can trust them i.would not hesitate to recommend over and over again.

PAULA P, HERTFORDSHIRE


The manager and the team at Lighthouse could not have been more helpful. I'm disabled and they worked with me to make the process easier at every step of the way, even lending me a loaner car while a couple of small niggles got fixed up on my new purchase! I absolutely adore my convertible baby blue fiat 500C Lounge - thankyou so much to Lighthouse for making my essential purchase of a car to help mitigate my disability (which could have been quite depressing) into something fun and happy

LUCY, SUSSEX


delightful manager friendly service effective sales communication and safe trial drive thank you Jeanie civil

JEAN CIVIL, SUSSEX


What can I say but a big breath of fresh air.with most used car dealers I've used its take the cash and it's your problem.With these guys it's not the case and they look after you when you leave and nothing is a problem .I had a small issue and it was resolved immediately. Scott ,John snr and John junior arecall top gents and I cant recommend them enough .I travelled over 100 miles to pick up my vehicle and I would use these again without a second thought .Its not all about the £££ here .Their concern is that your happy.keep the good work up and thanks again
