I have now Leased two cars with yourselves. I am still waiting for response to a question asked why my latest car has no satnav, still no answer a bit dissappointing. I would like to gwt tis sorted out asap

All in all, friendly, personal customer experience. Whilst all of my queries/issues were resolved pretty quickly a downside was that I was misled a few times regarding the delivery process of my car. The delivery of the car was 6 weeks later than what I was originally told. Furthermore, I had to ring up consistently to receive an update on my order post the original delivery date. A better experience would have been the agent being proactive and providing me with an update instead of myself having to get into contact for answers.

Hello Henry and thanks very much for your review.

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We are sorry to hear that our communication has let us down here. We will have a look into where we went wrong with it, both with you and in connection with our supplier about your vehicle. We do get our lead times from the manufacturers so this is what gets passed onto you, but lately, with the current scenario, the logistics have been affected quite a bit, not an excuse here, just possibility.

Thanks again for your feedback, we can't improve without it and we hope you enjoy your new car, now that you have it.

Happy Motoring, FVL

We are truly sorry to hear that your car had a stone chip on delivery. Although these things can happen it's never what anyone would like.

If you could please e-mail us on with your registration number we can have a look into your file and put this right for you.

Many thanks,

They did a good job up until the order was placed. After that the updates were very inaccurate.

Hello and thank you for sharing your feedback.

We are extremely sorry to hear that you were frustrated by the process.

Please rest assured that one of our agents will go through your file to find out if anything out of the ordinary occurred and feed this back to the management team.

We work very hard at making things as easy as possible for our customers, now more than ever there are certain regulatory processes that must be adhered to that we are aware can make things feel slightly protracted. We do our best to keep these to a minimum where possible.
We hope it won't stop you from coming back and using our service again and we hope your new car was worth the frustrations.

Happy Motoring, FVL

John Gallagher was my first point of contact and he was very good. Got back to me quickly to answer all my questions

The delivery guy didn't make me happy he made me feel rushed and didn't weant me to spend long checking the car before I signed.

Hello and thanks for sharing your feedback.

We are glad our account manager John looked after you, but obviously feel disappointed that manufacturers logistics company let us down with delivery. We have taken the points you raise above and put this to them and will await their response. We will be sure to come back to you with our findings quickly.

We do hope it wasn't enough to put you off from coming back to us and we hope the new car is going well for you!

We love the car and the service prior to delivery was excellent and the agent Peter was exceptional and very professional. It was the condition of the car on delivery

Hello Mr Heal and thanks for your feedback, we appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. We are delighted to hear that you loved our service and professionalism.

We're of course sorry to hear that your vehicle arrived in less than perfect condition. Our dealers are always asked to clean the cars prior to delivery but in certain circumstances this is not always possible. As part of our process we now call, email and text every customer one day after delivery just to make sure that everything meets the customers expectations.

We appreciate your feedback again and we hope you enjoy your new car.

Happy Motoring, FVL.

Good value for money and initial salesman was very helpful. Once I paid initial fee, communication was none existent unless I would contact first. Car Sat in the depo for a wee when I was told I would be contacted as soon as it arrived. Would still be waiting on it just now were I not to contact customer service.

We hope you do enjoy the new car and if you do require anything at all please feel free to reach us at CRM@FVL.CO.UK
