Welcome to Colin Ludwell Cars

After many years experience gained in the mechanical side of the motor trade, listening to horror stories, problems and complaints regarding the purchase of the new and used vehicles from motor dealers, I decided to do some research. I wanted to know what it would take to setup my own business as a motor dealer / provider.

In 1982, after many months of meetings and gentle persuasion from my bank manager, I decided to setup up a small manageable operation selling used but quality vehicles. I had high standards that needed to be followed by all and everyone who had dealings with my business. This meant I could confidently retail used vehicles without the problems I'd encountered so frequently during my mechanical days!

Bought a car 3 weeks ago, very pleased with car and the service I got from all the staff. They were very helpful but not pushy and the car was ready on time and was spotless. Would defiantly go back when wife's car needs replacing.

Could not have had a better experience here. The staff were helpful, professional and knowledgeable, whilst also being down to earth, and not pushy. The cars were all in pristine condition, fully valeted, and were opened for us ready to view. The process of buying was made very simple, and we were told everything we needed to know, but there was no ridiculous hard selling, which made things much more pleasant. All of our questions were answered in detail and more importantly, with honesty. The car I bought is fantastic, and was fully serviced and valeted on day of collection. Thank you very much - the best experience I have ever had buying a car :)

Thank you to Colin and all his Staff. My daughter almost bought a car she was unsure of from a big car supermarket whist being put under pressure from the salesman, We then called into Colin Ludwell Cars and under no pressure found the car she wanted. We met Colin and even the dog Diesel when we picked the car up. I have recommended you to my other daughter who is looking for her first car now.

Recently took delivery of my Mercedes car from Colin Ludwell Cars and just want to say "Thank You " to everyone there. It was an easy and pain free experience from the moment I first looked at the car on the forecourt to the afternoon I picked it up. The sales staff there were not 'pushy' and very knowledgeable and very polite. The cars there were all superbly presented ( unlike some larger garages I visited !! ) and I know I am fussy but nothing was a problem for them, they even did my private plate transfer for me. When I picked the car up, once again I was offered a coffee and shown around the car to make sure I was happy and it had actually had fuel put in it so I did not have to head for the nearest petrol station !! If you are looking for a new car I would highly recommend this garage as your first place to visit as like me you will be treated as you should be, I will certainly be back.
