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.

The smoothest of transactions. I was on the look out for a 2 seater convertible (MX5 originally) and Scott was very accommodating with the 2 models he had in stock. 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.

STEFAN, SUSSEX

NICOLA G, SUSSEX


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.

I had a really lovely experience buying my first car (at 47!) from Lighthouse. Scott was really helpful and in no way pushy, explaining loads and including a full service, new cam belt and a host of other stuff. I would highly recommend them as an ethical family business - a pleasure to deal with!

CHARLOTTE WATTS, EAST SUSSEX


Both gentlemen I dealt with were very nice people to deal with. Very straightforward and pleasant. Unfortunately had to claim under their unique warranty which was settled promptly and without fuss. Very refreshing to get a warranty that 'covers everything except rubber and glass' which means just that. Would highly recommend Lighthouse Cars

Lighthouse Car Centre were a pleasure to deal with. No hard sell. Took my very old car off of me and I drove the new one away the following day.

STEPHEN HOAD, SUSSEX


Had been looking for a particular model car andhad seen an ad. for Lighthouse Car centre illustrating such a car, so I 'phoned to check whether the car was still available, which it was. Advised them that I was coming to see it. Arrived at Lighthouse Car Centre to be met by two affable gentlemen, who had the car ready awaiting my arrival. Looked OK ,drove Ok, and I was given assurances re state and quality of car and guarantee associated with it and so I bought it there and then! All paperwork handled by John with copies of all details of sale and motor tax dealt withby Lightouse Car Centre via DVLA and copies forwarded to me by e-mail. All very efficient, all very encouraging and all very pleasant ! Would happily deal with Lighthouse Car Center again should the need arise, and would recommend them to anyone looking for a quality car, and an easy way to handle the transactions involved.

ROY R, SUSSEX


...great experience and customer service so far to date...

DAN S, SUSSEX


Just purchased my 10th vehicle from this company without even seeing the vehicle, that’s how confident I am with the quality of service they have provided me over the years. Included in those vehicles where the first cars for my two eldest children knowing that they where driving safe vehicles from a company I trust. My latest purchase was sourced for me while I waited as the vehicle I had went to see had already been sold, that’s customer service you just don’t get anywhere else. Thanks to Fred John and Scott for looking after us and I wouldn’t buy a vehicle from anywhere else.

LEE CARTER, SUSSEX


Saw a clean Audi A4 Avant up for sale as drove past. Checked out website when at home to Check spec. Filled in part x form that evening and received a call back the following morning. Explained that nothing wrong with existing car and wasn't looking to buy. Lighthouse Car Centre said come and have a look around. No pressure, No hard sell. Went the following day on the Sunday just after midday and had a look around the exterior with no interference and then went to the office and was asked if we would like it unlocked which we said yes and again left on our own without any interference had a good look around. Then we went back to the office to talk money. A fair price was given for our old 02 Plate Audi A4 Avant and the deal was done. Deposit left with clear detailed receipt. Agreed to collect on Tuesday and we paid remainder paid direct via bank transfer. Arrived on Tuesday to find car cleaned and ready to drive.No pressure and No rush. Really nice family run business.

ANDREA B, SUSSEX


I bought an old Corsa for my son to learn to drive, pretty old, pretty cheap & not that exciting! The guys at Lighthouse were helpful, efficient & did everything as promised. What I was really impressed with was their reaction when I said the windscreen wipers had stopped working. They offer a 2 months warranty & without quibble or question they fixed the problem & even gave me a lift home as I had to leave it with them overnight. This was a £2k car purchase not a £50k new Audi or BMW to warrant such friendly service. For me, if you’re looking for a second hand car the guys at Lighthouse are well worth visiting. Plenty of stock within all sorts of budgets and nice guys to do business with.

ANDREW N, SUSSEX


Really helpful & friendly service. Would go back for all my cars, you get what you pay for. Good quality cars at decent price!

KATIE N, SUSSEX


I bought a Mercedes B Class from the guys at Lighthouse. Friendly and honest with no hard sell. It came with a warranty and I had an issue with the locking system. Took the car back and with no fuss or cost to me got it fixed for me. Would recommend and use them again.

STEVEN R, SUSSEX


he guys who I dealt with were professional and helpful from start to finish. They were happy to have the car ready to my time scales and when there was a small problem with the car after I picked it up quickly got it resolved.
