Pathetic. They employ liars. No customer service. Avoid.

AdvantagesAs an employer, any application with 'Evans Halshaw' on their CV can be safely binned

DisadvantagesLiars. Keep you waiting. No customer service. They hate you. Won't write cheques...Shall I go on?

"...write a full review on Evans Halshaw - they are such a shambles. Here is my story, cut short: A) I had a Mercedes and needed to downsize. B) Because my car would be worth more that the car I would be buying, I needed someone I could trust to pay me the difference. Cue Evans Halshaw: 1) I phoned them (from AutoTrader) and got put through to a salesman 2) Told I didn't need to book an appointment to test drive the car, I turned up on the afternoon 3) ..."

Does Highway robbery still exist ?

AdvantagesNone that I can see

Disadvantagesnone but only if you enjoy trrowing money away

"Evans Halshaw does Highway robbery still exist Far from being one to whinge………. Does highway robbery still exist? I will explain then allow you to make your own minds up. A little background I purchased a Peugeot 406 executive 2.2 HDI (diesel) recently and discovered a fault that I was not aware of when it was bought, the so called FAP filter. Now this to anybody not in the picture sounds simple and cheap right? How wrong can you ..." Read review

Not also steelers but a bunch of cowboys

Advantagesnone, none, none, none....

DisadvantagesTerrible service, in great doubt of any work being done

"Evan Halshaw Vauxhall, 2 Cultins Road, Edinburgh: Not also steelers but a bunch of cowboys calling themselves professional car mechanics. Well I'll explain my history and also I want to express my total sympathy with emilne82. I bought a Vauxhall corsa from an Evan Halshaw dealer at the end of January 2008. Truth is to say that the selling process was pretty much smooth; I did not have any hidden costs and they did explain clearly the extra ..." Read review

Steeler not dealers

Advantageserrrm, none

DisadvantagesPushy sales reps, work not carried out, hidden expenses

"Evans Halshaw Renault Aberdeen - More of a Steeler than a deeler You know the story, you spend ages looking through the endless lines of cars in all the local garages, you see the car you like, its even in a nice color and the price is right, so you go for it. That's what we did, only to find out that Evans Halshaws are more of a steeler than a dealer! Previously we owned a Renault Meagne, it was a good car but a bit on the small side, especially ..."

Appalling salesman and broken promises

Advantagesabsolutely none

Disadvantagesthe list is endless

"...had a terrible experience with Evans Halshaw at Darlington. I had a phone call out of the blue from one of the salesmen who informed me they had some wonderful deals and would I be interested in coming in to discuss this? I initially said no, as I am very happy with the car I have now. However I did eventually agree to go to the garage. To cut a long story short, I agreed to view a vauxhall astra that was located at a different branch. I was told ..." Read review

Evans Halshaw - pushy salesmen who lie!

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagespushy salemen, dont tell the truth!

"...recent experience of dealing with Evans Halshaw Batley was horrendus! They were only able to provide me a quote only when I was ready to order a car. I gave them the spec I wanted, a Ford Fiesta, and the one THEY chose seemed the most expensive option, and they didnt give me a choice of car so I assumed they were offering me the best deal. I was wrong. Initially I wanted it on finance, and after coming away and going through the figures at ..." Read review

Evans Halshaw

AdvantagesDidnt buy a car from them

DisadvantagesNone

"...tried reserving a car from Evans Halsaw at Preston. We phoned up as soon as they opened and spoke to one of their sales people. They took all our details and said the car in question was still for sale and he would get back to us in around 20 mins. Four hour later and two phone calls to them we were told the car had been sold. The previous day we had been to another Evans Halshaw dealer to look at another one of their cars only the sale person couldn't ..." Read review

Armed with knowledge I got there in the end!

AdvantagesGot a good car in the end

DisadvantagesSlow sales process, watch the add ones, bodywork not repaired as agreed, one key doesn't work.

"I knew of Evan's Halshaws poor reviews before purchasing a used car from their runabouts section at Crownhill in Milton Keynes. I was prepared for the sales pitch and add ons, or so I thought! I found a car which is 1 owner, low mieage and in my price bracket so agreed to purchase it. On sitting down to view my invoice I was supprised to see it had increased substantially, I immediately told the sales man I didn't want any add on's and I would ..." Read review

Evans Halshaw

AdvantagesNone whatsoever

DisadvantagesHindsight a wonderful thing!

"Sorry - I posted this review on the wrong area and as I have upset a couple of folk and used the wrong wording I have deleted it and also reworded certain areas and taken out some information - hopefully the people that it does affect will read it and take advice to be very careful when dealing with this company - very very careful.

AdvantagesNONE

DisadvantagesEVERYTHING

"R-aberdeen Diabolical customer care My complaints are about EH Nissan/Renaut, Wellington road. ABERDEEN. My micra had and Igition switch problem, this was established by a small local garage that has serviced/mot'd/generally repaired my car for years (NO PROBLEMS). They couldn't help with this problem as the ignition switch is electronically connected to the key and immobiliser and once replaced has to be re-coded. Hence my unfortunate dealings ..." Read review

Avoid Evans Halshaw Servicing (Reading)

AdvantagesThey're local

DisadvantagesThey're not to be trusted

"...how irate I am with Evans Halshaw's Basingstoke Road Branch in Reading. This was formerly a Reg Vardy Branch where I had many years of decent service only to find that the new owners are providing a less than satisfactory service. Given the car industry has enough problems at present you'd think they'd up the ante on customer service, but no... NOT Evans Halshaw. So here's my story. I recently put my car in for Service and MOT. Car was ready on ..." Read review

Terrible customer service at Evans Halshaw

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesA lot

"NEVER, EVER BUY FROM EVANS HALSHAW I was 7 months pregnant and we decided to buy a Renault Megane Scenic, we spent weeks searching for the right one. We eventually found one at Evans Halshaw Poole, we negotiated a price we were happy with and collected the car a week later. The car had some problems, it had smelly air conditioning, extremely squeeky brakes, wobbly doors and a chip on the windscreen. I contacted the garage and returned the vehicle ..." Read review

Evans Halshaw - Great Dealership

AdvantagesGreat Service, Great Car and Affordable Finance

DisadvantagesMy Window Wiper is a bit rubbish (will be fixed)

"...recently bought a car from Evans Halshaw. A ford fiesta finesse. When I first got to the dealership I was worried that I wouldn\'t really be able to afford the car but I was reassured by the Salesman that it would be affordable on Finance. The salesman was very informative about the car and mentioned all the details required e.g. service history, MOT, mileage and how many owners etc. We checked the car under the bonnet and the tyres etc. We ..."
