    Honest informative and helpful car dealer

    By Kevin R on 15 December 2019 | Verified purchase

    Great car dealer. Came across honest and informative and was very helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a used car

    Hi Kevin, Thanks for the 5 star review much appreciated, glad you found me to be a genuine guy as i strive to be as honest and transparent as possible even with trade in vehicles at the lower end of the price scale, all customers are treated the same no matter how high or low the price of the vehicle. The BMW compact you purchased was indeed a clean and tidy example and still looked the part. Thanks again for taking the time to leave a positive, genuine review. All the best. Matthew

    Hi Peter,Thanks for the 5 star review and really glad you where happy with the very nice mk1 156 sportwagon selespeed you purchased,which is a lovely low mileage example with a fantastic service history .I always try my best to be as honest,descriptive and genuine as i can when writing adverts and picturing vehicles for retail. I do sell about 90% of my Alfa's off advert alone without customers actually coming to see them first, which was the same case for yourself.Lovely to meet you and your dog when i dropped it off and thanks for the beers they where much appreciated after my drive. Having spoke to you a few times after you purchase i know you are enjoying the Alfa and did say you wished you had purchased one sooner. As you are aware if you need me in the future for anything please give me a call im always happy to help. All the best and Happy Alfa, Matthew

    True Alfa Indeed

    By Claude D on 25 October 2019 | Verified purchase

    Beautiful car from a friendly, knowledgeable and totally helpful dealer. True Alfa fans head here!

    Reply from True Alfa Italian Sports & Prestige Specialist on 09/01/20

    Hi Claude, Thanks for the 5 star review you are a True Alfisti just like myself born and bread on Alfas for many years, a great person to deal with and a true gentleman.The GT you purchased was a lovely low mileage example with a great service history. Did all the trimmings for you full service,cambelt/waterpump,disc and pads all sorted before your purchase.Traded in your old 156 which i spent some time and money on to bring it back to life as you where looking for something a little more modern and sporty. You had an issue with the clutch and i gladly got the GT recovered free of charge, we replaced the clutch at cost and i fitted you a new door handle whilst it was in free of charge which you were more than happy with. Im sure we will stay in touch and will see you for an MOT and service when due. All the best and Happy Alfa ,Matthew

    Its all about trust.

    By Keith W on 20 October 2019 | Verified purchase

    No nonsense car dealing. I know where I wanted to be, so did Matthew. Two test drives later [one in mine and one in the Saab] we struck a deal. I came away the same day in a beautiful car plus an after care package second to none thrown in. Very satisfied indeed.

    Reply from True Alfa Italian Sports & Prestige Specialist on 09/01/20

    Hi Keith, What a great bloke and thanks for the 5 star review. A straight up no non-sense sale. You got a cracking Saab that you had been looking for for some time i gave you the price you wanted on your trade in and the deal was done. Hope you enjoy your summer with the roof down but im sure you will. All the best Matthew

    True Alfa will not disappoint.

    By Daniel E on 18 October 2019 | Verified purchase

    Excellent customer service. Had full service before pick up. Before warranty ran out fixed other little jobs to my satisfaction. Top bloke. Cheers Matt 👍

    Hi Daniel , Thanks for the 5 star review and 6 months after your purchase which is always good knowing another great Alfa 159 i have sold is quietening all the doubters and Alfa nay sayers. The 159 you purchased was a lovely facelift example with an ultra low 45000 full service history of course with my usual comprehensive service,MOT and RAC warranty for added piece of mind a couple of new badges and brakes disc/pads . Living local to myself im sure i will see you when you need your next service and MOT as i do with a few other local customers in my area. Thanks for the complements and really chuffed you like and are enjoying your first Alfa experience. All the best and Happy Alfa

    Knowledgeable and enthusiastic ... but take care

    By Robert C on 02 October 2019 | Verified purchase

    The staff are True Alfa are knowledgeable and enthusiastic but when buying a car from them that needs work make sure you have an agreed date for when the work will be completed prior to handing over a deposit. When the work is completed make sure it is to the standard discussed and agreed. Always arrange to inspect the underneath of any vehicle you are interested in buying.

    Reply from True Alfa Italian Sports & Prestige Specialist on 08/10/19

    Hi Rob,Thanks for the 3 star review the 1996 GTV phase 1 you purchased was a very clean example, comprehensive full service history all the keys, drove A1. As i state to all my customers when leaving a deposit you being no exception i cant promise a date for collection until the vehicle have been pre MOT checked and all the relevant service parts have been ordered,the GTV was ready a few days later than expected due to the fact i had to wait for the valeters to valet the GTV for yourself to collect so was out of my hands. On the day of the collection i collected you from the train station as agreed in the GTV and all was well.The underneath of the GTV was without issue passing its mot with no advisories but the under engine tray was the original 1, you rang me saying how you were disappointed as it wasn't in nice condition i did offer to send you another but you said you had already got one and not to bother. I will try and do better in the future,All the best Happy Alfa Matthew

    Not as expected !

    By Tony D on 15 June 2019 | Verified purchase

    Car was not ready when it should have been Painted callipers - paint all over discs New fog lamps fitted - one hasn’t worked ever Offside repeated lamp buried in bodywork when delivered Paint not as advertised - quite poor in areas Wheels - all wee good cosmetically - three severely bent Engine warning light came on after 91 miles - Dealer most unhelpful Marked my part exchange up by almost 300% with inaccuracies in listing I expected the listing to be accurate and honest- I was disappointed All in all I could never recommend and suggest you look elsewhere

    Reply from True Alfa Italian Sports & Prestige Specialist on 20/06/19

    Hi Tony thanks for your feed back as its all appreciated,goes to show as i say nothing is perfect especially at 12 years old.You came to view the Alfa,inspected it yourself before any work had been done,then gave me quite a list of things you wanted me to do on top of my usual servicing. I did my usual full MOT,full service,cbelt wpump, disc/pads alround,RAC warranty.The jobs you requested painting the calipers red (which i payed a firm todo),change the front fogs for new which were working at point of sale,refurbished the alloys, balanced them non of then showed up to be bent? changed the wing mirrors for chrome. Me and my son dropped the Alfa off at your home you again inspected it, said how happy you were. I got an email a week later about eml light you used RAC provided whom turned it off, you said you would let me know if it came back on,Didn't here from you again? Minor issues that i would have been happy to rectify had you rang me at any point as i help everyone. Thanks Matthew

    Top service for my Alfa Romeo Brera S 2.2 Prodrive

    By Robin C on 12 June 2019 | Verified purchase

    I was hesitant of giving 5 stars, not because TrueAlfa don't deserve them, but if, like me, when you are looking at a garage with 5 stars across the board, it can look a little suspicious. HOWEVER I can assure you I'm convinced they're all genuine. He is an honest guy who went out of his way to get the car to my requirements. Discs and pads all round, tyres, (expensive) cam chain fix, exhaust, the list goes on. Even made cosmetic changes by replacing front fogs, painting calipers and refurbishing alloys. Took a little time to get everything sorted, but I was willing to wait to get the right car. Small issue - turned out the battery needed replacing, which I used the 12 Months RAC cover to deal with (I paid the price for the new battery and TrueAlfa reimbursed the trade cost - fair enough). Communication excellent throughout and was happy to chat Alfa. Also gave me a good price on my Abarth 595 Turismo trade in. Would definitely use TrueAlfa again and hope to stay in touch.

    Hi Robin, Thanks for the honest and straight up 5 star review. It can be difficult sometimes preparing any vehicle at 11 years old to a good standard and having to do work outside the box to make it just right for the customer but i am glad everything you asked and we agreed to do has met your standards and you are more that happy with the gorgeous Prodrive S you purchased with very low miles and a great service history. I am always fare on trade ins especially the Italian models being a specialist it only seems fare. Unfortunately due to a new faulty chain tensioner and some trouble some camshaft sensors it did take me a lot longer than usual to get the Brera ready to collect some 8 weeks in fact and i thank you for being patient throughout the process. I am sure you will have many great driving experiences in the PRODRIVE S as you did state you had been after one for sometime. Great to do business with, All the best and Happy Alfa, Matthew
