We were eventually given an courtesy car, which they then swapped with another that has: an expired licence, broken charger for phones,...

Pinetown Cars is a typical dodgy 2nd hand car dealer. A real case of mutton dressed as lamb. They may seem to have good stock, but trust me rather find that perfect car somewhere else. The sales person we dealt with, Mark Overall, only ever lied to us, and made promises he could not keep. He also speaks to his clients like TRASH and cant handle it when he is spoken to in the same way when it becomes unacceptable. Their supposed "business manager" Charmaine, doesn't have clue. She is...

We bought a BMW X3 2.0d M Sport at BMW in Tigervalley. And it have been and endless story with the customer service. The car did not have PDC installed, so we decided to install that (included in the price), but it was not any available times, so we had to wait a 2 weeks which was ok. But when we got the car home and had a closer look, there was still tape marks on the car, so we had to return the car to buffer out that, so the car came back again, but still not all the tape marks was gone....

My Ducati Multistrada 1200 has a recall on front suspension. Not unsafe, merely an irritating problem. Ordered parts 4 months ago. I called regularly but, despite promises to call back, no one ever did. Phoned again yesterday, but now the parts are on "back order". What a load of rubbish. I don't think they ever ordered the parts. Come on guys 4 months - the parts could have been flown here with a carrier pigeon already. This is one of the most expensive motorcycles in South Africa,...

Otherwise everything else was fine with the car. The following week, we...

I purchased an “Approved Used” vehicle from Reeds Cape Town, the Opel Agent, in September 2010 with approximately 45000km on the clock – Opel Astra 1.9 GTC Diesel For “complete peace of mind” the salesman at the time convinced me to purchase a full warranty package from Motorite, as well as an Extended Service Plan –both at a huge additional cost. I was also instructed to always service the vehicle at the agents, which I did. This turned out to be a total waste of time and...

I was told the card machine was 'out of order', so had to pay the balance of payment (after deposit), prior to collecting the car - I was left with no recourse to withhold funds for work not accepted. 2.

I collected it and I paid R2500 expecting for everything to be 100%. When I got into my car, it had car grease all over my steering wheel and my car wasn't even cleaned. (They had more than enough time to do it.) As I went through my invoice I noticed they charged me R260 for coolant which wasn't needed as I just recently did it myself. They...

BMW Auto Bavaria Midrand replaced a worn engine mounting on my 2004 Mini Cooper S. When changing the component they damaged the Catalytic Converter valued at R20 000.00. When I took the vehicle back for them to have it repaired they refused to take liability for the work they performed on my vehicle. I escalated the matter to BMW Complaints Line and the verdict was that they cannot help me. I am now landed with an undriveable vehicle and in excess of R20 000-00 damage.

When we arrived to collect the vehicle it was parked outside and was extremely dirty, they drove the car into the workshop where they continued to wipe the dirt off and do some touch ups, at this point I was already unhappy as I was told the car was ready for collection.

We finally received our car at 16:45 on the 15th of December, the night before we had to leave for holidays, without any of the extras having been fitted (headrest DVD players for the kids). The reason for the delay was apparently because the vehicle carriers refused to transfer the Fortuner from the stock yard in Bellville to the Stellenbosch branch. We noticed that the pocket behind the...
