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.

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

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.

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

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

BRIAN, SUSSEX


I made two visits to the Lighthouse Car Centre, one to have a look around and the second to try out two cars. I also looked at the Centre's website, which is very well set out, detailed and easy to navigate. My visits there were a pleasure, I was given the keys to the two vehicles I was interested in and their workings were explained to me patiently and in detail. The staff were pleasant and friendly and the office was welcoming, far nicer than the big dealerships I'd visited. I purchased a Renault Clio and am delighted with my new car. I came away satisfied I had made a good choice. There is an excellent choice of vehicles at the Centre, something to suit every pocket. I can highly recommend Lighthouse and would happily purchase from them again.

AMANDA S, WEST SUSSEX


I bought a small car for my daughter without ever visiting Lighthouse. The dealer provided me with an excellent, virtual tour of the vehicle pointing out the few defects in the bodywork as well as all the good points. They arranged delivery of the car as arranged and I found the car to be exactly as I expected. I was very pleased as - more to the point - was my daughter! Excellent service.

PAUL B, STROUD GLOUSTERSHIRE


We arrived unannounced with a view to test drive a vehicle we had seen advertised on auto trader. After being shown the vehicle, we were left to explore and inspect the car at our leisure. At no time, were we pressurised. Half an hour at least had passed, when we decided to enter the office to "talk business". The whole experience was very pleasant, stress free and reassuring. We would recommend this family firm to anyone who still value a personal touch and a sense of humour.

CARINE C, SUSSEX


Very was done fast without any hassle. Everyone was friendly and very helpful. I traveled from the midlands as they had the car I was after. I had to trust them on the condition I was very happy. I would recommend them to anyone.

Last min I changed my mind when I saw the Mercedes. I was never put under any pressure to choose a particular car. Scott just told me to take my time and did his best to answer any questions I had. First class customer service and a great car. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family. Drove away very happy. Highly recommend.

I was advised to go to Lighthouse as it is a well established, family firm and completely trustworthy. I know little about the pro's and cons of different cars, so much appreciated the clear information that was provided in the most helpful, kind and friendly manner. The whole experience was made totally pleasurable with the owner advising and taking on some of the paperwork tasks. I would not hesitate to recommend this garage. They were brilliant. They also had a great selection of cars.
