Having been a Passat owner for a number of years, we were told by a friend and from some online research that the Skoda Octavia was the same only better and cheaper. It isn't. Having been to a local Skoda dealer who didn't have what we were looking for , we thought we'd go and see if there was a nearly new Passat instead. We were not only delighted with the better quality feel of the Passat, we found that a new Passat was no more expensive than a nearly new one. There was no pressure: we were presented with the options and chose. Alex was personable, courteous and knowledgeable, friendly without being familiar. A professional. We look forward to receiving our new car this month.
Can't recommend Benfied VW Carlisle enough. Just bought a new passat estate from Alex. Great service with no pressure selling. Makes buying a new car a great experience. Can't wait for the 1st of March.
Fantastic service can't wait till march after today great news. Cheers mickey .
After originally going for a service on my Golf , I decided to take a test drive in a brand new Golf with Colin, there was no hard sell no obligation to buy, offers of complimentry coffee :-). On this occasion I didn't buy, but I will be back to purchase in the near future wether new or second hand. Such nice friendly people here can't recommend highly enough!
Great sales team at Carlisle, Got the offer i wanted, the car i wanted and the service i wanted from the staff. Cant wait to take delivery. Well Done Benfield Carlisle!
The customer service so far has been excellent , I'm looking forward to doing business with benfields carlisle
Generally the experience as fine but there were a number of aspects which were not really to my satisfaction
1) we had agreed to pick the car up on a Wedneday, we were subsequently informed after we had contacted the garage that it wouldn't be available until the Thursday. This meant a days holiday wasted as i sat awaiting confirmation that i could go and pick it up.
2) On colection the car came without any mats. While i appreciate this is common, having bought the car over the internet it would have been nice to have told us this, as this is something geenrally would have featured in the negotiations which had all been completed over the phone prior. Would you have been happy if i had pulled out of the purchase because of this?
3) The was delivered with so little petrol there was genuine concern that i would get to a garage - just what i want a new car two children and my first task is to be walking down the road to get a can of petrol.
Hi Mr Cleverly
We apologise that your vehicle was delivered with such a low fuel level. As you point out, your purchase was made through the Internet and delivery was arranged from another site but it should have been delivered with adequate fuel so that you weren't concerned. I will be writing to you separately on this subject. Had our Internet Team realised mats were important to you, they would have discussed this as part of the negotiations but it is not something we raise as a matter of course. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention.
Benfield at Carlisle could not have done any more to make buying my new car any better, I felt like a VIP from beginning to end, I even had a special unveiling of my new car and was presented with a chocolate sports car. The quality of service from all the staff especially Alex and Dwayne was beyond compare, the deal was excellent and my new Volkswagen drives like a dream, thank you so much from a very satisfied customer.
Having been to several dealerships in the last few weeks I have been left feeling very down hearted , walking into Benfield and meeting Micky was like a breath of fresh air. I was listened to, given good advice, shown several cars that fitted my criteria and test drive arranged. Nothing was to much trouble. Follow up phone calls were received, it's been brilliant. I would and will recommend Benfield and in three years time we will be back for another car.
I would just like to say a big thankyou to the staff at benfields at rosehill in carlisle. We recently purchased a new vw and the service we received was first class. We were not in anyway pressured and the selling tactic was designed to work with the needs of the buyer not the seller. attention to detail was without fault and we were made to feel extremely welcome throughout our contact. Well done.
As usual a first class experience.
Sales person was very helpful and went out of his way to try and get us the Best deal he could, I had a vw up and loved it but became pregnant just after we bought it last year and now the baby is here needed something bigger but still affordable, and we where really happy with the help and service we recieved would definataly recommend them
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Benfields. I bought a used vehicle but I was treated like I was buying new. The car had a couple of minor problems which were quickly resolved with no hassle. The whole process was straight forward and pain free
Great service. Good car and a good deal. Thanks micky!
Excellent service all round.
I would thoroughly recommend the services of Benfield Carlisle. The knowledgeable reception are a pleasure to deal with. 10 out of 10 for a great service.
Great team,everyone was very helpful and not full of it.
I had specific requirements and the team bent over backwards.to make sure I got what I needed.
Great customer service. I have used numerous dealership garages over the years but I can honestly say this is the best. I was kept fully informed and my car was spotless.
Very professional and friendly sales staff .We called on an extremely hot day with just a general inquiry and were immediately offered cold drinks and all the information was produced and explained without fuss.Alex and Steve were very helpful hopefully we will be able to get the same level of service on going.
Excellent customer service from sales executive - Colin Birch and sales manager Duane Jones
Nice friendly staff,polite and even made a cracking brew. We met with a member of management,and he was great in offering the best deal,with the most suitable car for my price region.
Welcomed with a smile, car demonstrated in the manner I requested & mutually satisfying commercial agreement achieved. Coffee not all bad either !
As the actress said to the bishop: "I'm looking forward to the delivery"
regards & thanks,
Excellent customer relationship and efficient handling of all aspects of exchange, and particular individual requirements. Prevailing atmosphere is one of customer focus and satisfaction. Also a feeling of fair and open dealing.
Good service from start. Contacted to have a test drive as they had just had delivery of the new mk 7 GTI. As I have the mk 6 they thought I would be interested. Easy sale after a test drive. Roll on delivery.
A very professional workforce with nothing they couldn't sort out. Thanks
always get good service and advice would not use anybody else
All the staff at Benfield's in Carlisle were polite, helpful and very considerate. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. They certainly made the purchase of a new car a painless event - if that is at all possible!
As usual the service was superb. The Benfield Team really care. Thank you
Excellent all round service
I was very happy with the recent inspection service.
I am delighted with my second VW purchased from Benfield Carlisle. As Tim Taylor was so helpful the first time, when I bought a used Golf SE, we went to see him again with a view to purchasing a pre-registered Golf Plus. Tim told us about a special promotion on the new Golf Plus, so we had a test drive and snapped up one of the promotional cars. After collecting the car and finding a couple of minor problems, Tim organised for these to be resolved quickly, so once again, I am a very satisfied Benfield customer.
Garage gave a good service but the booking service was poor as booked my MOT before it was actually due and I had to change the date.
Hi Mr Turner
Thanks for your feedback. Sorry about the early booking of your MOT. We have since reviewed our booking procedure to ensure this does not happen in the future .
Very helpful and took in what I wanted.Made shure I was happy with what was on sale.Give me the chance to change my mind wasn't pushed into anything i didn't want
The service I received at benfields was excellent and very professional . I would not hesitate to recommend them to my family or friends.
I was very happy with all aspects of the service.
Fantastic experience, would recommend Benfield to friends and family
Sale process was very straightforward and without too much paperwork too complete. Recommend!
My experience was seamless and effortless as every question was answered for me upfront by the team at benfield
Excellent service; fast, friendly and easy.
Got a VW deal that no one within 120 miles could beat!
On top of that excellent service to go with it!
Friendly efficient staff who organised and performed the service.
The staff on the service desk at Benfield Carlisle were very friendly and helpful.
Great service at Benfields staff friendly very helpful with good knowledge and advise about a really good quality vehicle.
Would highly recommend to anyone thinking about buying a VW to go and see for themselves.
Very satisfied with the service from Benfield Volkswagen Carlisle
I am what I would class as young(ish) but have several physical problems, however looking at me you wouldnt think I had a problem which often leads to misconceptions and attitude from people that dont know me, however from the first time I walked into Benfield at Carlisle I have been treat with nothing but respect and have been made very welcome by everyone, which is admirable and also rare nowadays.
I would especially like to commend the young lady that dealt with my service during the day, she is an asset to your company and a genuinely nice person. Thanks for your commitment to ensuring customer care comes first. I woul recommend Benfield to everyone, you really are first class
went in out of the blue a my car brakes where sticking on .they where fully booked up but still managed to fit me in great servce from the Carlisle branch.
This is my second car from the Benfield Dealership. I think the Spring check is great vale for money. However, as part of the check it also includes a wash and vacuum. Unfortuntely this was the only thing that let Benfield down as it was not up to the expected standard.
I have always had exeptional service. The staff are always friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend Benfiel if you are thinking of purchasing a new vehicle.
Hi Mrs Rathbone
Thank you for your comments. We are sorry the wash & vac was not up to standard and I have brought this to the attention of our Service Manager. Please contact the dealership at your convenience and we will carry out another wash and vac at a time to suit yourself. Apologies again and thanks for your feedback.
Thank you so much. That is much appreciated
Fantastic service from a top class company. Fully recommended.
great service helpfull staff nothing was a problem even deliverd back to me 5 star service benfield thankyou
Quick, polite service, what else is needed?
Very good service and experience. Times arranged and price quoted for repairs were all met in full promptly and efficiently.
Always had my car serviced by you without any problems
I entered the Benfield VW showroom at Carlisle with very little hope of being able to afford a new car, but one hour later I left having placed an order for a new Golf. The bright immaculate showroom was busy , which was encouraging to see. I was immediately greeted at the door by a very friendly young sales person who was eager and willing to help. I didn't have a lot of time to spare so we got on with a test drive and in no time at all shook hands on a deal, much better than I had expected.
I have always been looked after really well by the Carlisle Benfield garage. The staff are always friendly and helpful.
My experience with Benfield was second to none. My car went in to sort a minor fault. Whilst there it was routinely checked on the computer and an additional unconnected fault was found and corrected. Great service
Two lovely girls at the Service Dept. at Carlisle ie Christina Frost and Ashley Graham, allways helpful and obligeing.
after recently purchasing a new car i was very pleased with the sales man who attended to me he was very helpful and pleasent
everyone made me feel welcome including the girls on reception
I love dealing with Benfield VW in Carlisle. They are professional, but always make you feel welcome, whether just looking to change your car or just popping into book a service. I firmly recommend them. So much so that family member number 3 has been guided towards them
Excellent, first class team, very helpfull.
Shaun Yates was the salesman I dealt with in Carlisle and he was excellent. I was a lone woman with two young children in tow and he couldn't have made me feel more comfortable. I supplied him with the car I was looking for and he sat me down in the warmth and offered refreshments for both me and my young children. He didn't keep us waiting long and he informed me every step of the way what he was doing. I felt comfortable on the test drive and I found it a very good test drive in comparison to one I had previously had. The route was lengthy which gave me a good chance to get a feel for the car. He did not put any pressure on me to buy that day and I went away to think about my decision but he ensured me that if I wanted that car they would make sure it happened. I feel I had a very good experience considering I don't know much about cars and felt very daunted by the big show room, that is thanks to Shaun. I would definitely go back and request Shaun's assistance.
Great service from Benfield Carlisle. Quick, efficient, friendly and reliable, it was the complete package, many thanks.
I found the salesman to be helpful and not too pushy. I am still not sure what car to buy or where from ,but I do feel confident that Benfield would provide good service after hearing good reports from some friends ,who had dealings with them.
Alix Hind the sales assistant was very helpful and friendly, great customer service.
The only problem was Benfield website needs to be kept updated as soon as a car is sold it should be taken off the website.
Hi Ms Marshall
Thank you for your positive comments. With regard to updating the Benfield Website, once the Sales Manager has authorised the vehicle to be withdrawn from the Website, the update takes place overnight. We have, however, taken your comments on board and will look at any potential improvements we can make. Thanks for the feedback.
A no obligation test drive was arranged without problems and the salesman was friendly and knowledgeable with an interest in making sure we selected the correct car for our needs.
Fantastic service, thoroughly recommended.
Friendly,profession staff. always very punctual.
In the 18 months I have been using Benfield I have found the standards of customer service to be exemplary, and I have been very satisfied with the work they have carried out.
Their free vehicle safety check is especially good.
Excellent service as always......
I had the best time ever buying my new Polo from Benfields in Carlisle the team there are awsome!! I even got balloons when I collected my new car and everything was sorted so quickly to get me back on the road..Thank you all so much from a very happy VW Polo owner.
This is the now the second car I have purchased from Benfield and on both occasions the service I recieved was fantastic both on price and the quality
When you have a busy work & family life, you need a professional & smooth service. That's exactly what I got.
Thank you very much Benfield, Carlisle!
Great customer care, Great deal, Looking forwards to the arrival of our new car : -)
Helpful staff , long term problem solved. Service reception very efficient and obliging. Vehicle returned on time and valeted. Courtesy car greatly appreciated and returned in a similar condition. Many thanks.
Benfield staff are very friendly an offer you every possible offer availiable. They couldn't have helped me more picking my new car!
I had a problem with a warning light being displayed, requiring a visit to "a qualified workshop". Benfield in Carlisle booked me in without delay and remedied the issue with a new sensor. They also identified a need for a new glowplug which they fitted. The result was being back on the road in no time with no cost to myself as warranty covered everything. On top of this my Tiguan had received a courtesy valetting!
Bought a vw jetta from the Carlisle branch, and I was most impressed with product knowledge and friendly professional service I received. I will be returning in the future based on the level of service I was shown. Would highly recommend this branch for any car purchase. It's a 10/10 .
I found staff pleasant and friendly; easy to talk with and helpful in their explanations.
The work on my car was done on the day and at the time of my choice. Importantly, it was ready at the time agreed.
really helpful staff, very recommended!
I found the staff at the Carlisle branch of Benfield motors to be very efficient and friendly. They kept me informed when my car would be ready and what had been done to it. Although the car had been in 3 times for the same fault and I hadn't booked it in, twice they managed to get my car looked at within the day. When it had to be kept overnight as a part was being ordered for it, I was offered a courtesy car. I would like to pass on my thanks and gratitude to all the staff at Carlisle and I would definitely recommend Benfield motors as a reputable garage for both sales and aftesales services.
Good service from counter staff at Garage
Very helpful staff and excellent customer care.
Friendly and helpful staff and a great hassle free service with no hidden charges. Couldn't ask for more from Benfield!
Excellent Service Desk staff who do their utmost to accommodate without over-promising. I was surprised when a what I thought was a fixed priced service was a lot cheaper than expected - Benfield only charged for the time the job took and their pre-paid service plan option provided great savings . The no fuss courtesy car option has been a blessing too. I can highly recommend Benfield.
Helpful salesman and provided all the info he could and a test drive. No hard sell as this was just a first look at the car and that was appreciated.
Fantastic service. I feel safe and secure driving my car - knowing it is in perfect working order. Thank you!
If Benfield Motors advise you that you need new tyres, get a second opinion.
HI Mrs Morris
I've spoken with our Service Manager Simon Barwick and he tells me on inspection your tyres measured 3mm. We follow ROSPA guidelines, an industry standard, which recommends replacing at this depth as your stopping distance is dramatically reduced in wet weather.
Found the staff very friendly and helpful, wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family.
we were greeted by John Buxton when we arrived, had test drive in the touran which was really good, we found all the information that John gave us very helpful.
Fantastic salesman, really friendly and happy with our new car!! Would definalty reccomend!!
Truly outstanding experience from sales team and management to the girls on the reception desk. All so polite and friendly, going that little bit further.
Delighted with my new Golf.
An excellent service delivered efficiently and with no problems
I was very well looked after. Benfield devoted a lot of time & as a car with a specification I was looking for wasn' available they arranged test drives in various cars so that I could experience the differnt options (i.e petrol or diesel, manual or automatic) I was looking for
A really excellent service, I was kept informed all the way through the process and the car was rectified ahead of time. The ladies on reception were very nice and well informed. Thank you all.
I was very happy with the way I was treated during my visit to your VW dealership in Carlisle, your salesman Mike was pleasant and informative and seemed very keen without being pushy, unlike some other dealers I have encountered. We will be contacting Mike in the near future to arrange a test drive and hopefully sort out a deal.
Great service from all of the staff 10/10 would be happy to recommend Benfield Carlisle.
Comfy armchair, endless coffe and friendly staff made waiting for my car whilst it was serviced an unusually pleasant experience!
Ihave bought my last 2 cars from Benfields ,carlisle.From sales to after sales i have found the staff kowlegable , pleasant,helpful and acommodating.I would have no hesitation in recommending Benfields to family and friends.
During my driving years this is the first Dealership where I don't feel as though I am in the way if I wait for my car and I am offered beverages.
1st class sales and after sales service
As usual superb service and a friendly, welcoming service. I even had a nice discussion with the sales staff despite me saying that my next car would be centrally sourced and it was doubtful it could be sourced from yourselves. Excellent!
Great service provided. Would recommend to anybody. Thank You
10/10 very helpful staff and prompt service thank you all,
on a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give 10........
I was one of those unfortunate Golf owners with the ESP warning light stuck on the dashboard. I couldn't get my car MOT'd this year and it was well out of warranty - it was going to cost hundreds to put it right. Benfield looked at my car the same day, and after we both appealed to VW the day after the "Get Dom" BBC programme was shown. The manufacturer agreed to foot the bill entirely. Benfield put themseves out and booked my car to be fixed then and there, so I could get it MOTd the next day. All in all things were handled very well in the end.
Very professional service each time I have visited a Benfield dealers. No high pressure selling, just friendly honest advice.
Would definately recommend Benfield, especially to women shopping for a car on their own, as you`re NOT made to feel you`re entering a male dominated environment.
The whole experience was very positive and at no time did I feel pressurised. The salesman was extremely knowledgable and helpful regarding the product.
Excellent service as always......................
many thanks, Mark.
My husband and I were pleased with the service and attention we received last week. Although we had a test drive in a Passat there did not seem to be any hard sell from your salesmen to push us on a decision. When we returned the following day we saw John Buxton your sales person who was polite and knowledge, and understood the decision we had made regarding the purchasing of a new car. He was able to source a Skoda Octavia Elegance with one swift phone call. John had a very pleasant friendly nature and sought to meet our needs whateven we had decided upon.
The service provided by Shaun was good and not pressured in any way. Any information i requested was avaible and given in a clear manner, I will be returning to follow up the enquiry i have made with no issues to the service todate
no hard sell which was good, both sales team and Manager were very friendly, helpful and gave good advice on what I could expect to get for my car and options for buying a new/used VW Scirocco.
