"Southdowns are very friendly and work around you. I was able to test drive my new car on the day without phoning ahead and picked it up the next week! Very professional and helpful, I'm reassured that I made the right decision by coming to them. Such a family friendly, reliable business."

Mrs Debbie Modashia

We visited South Downs Car Sales looking for  a Toyota Auris that had been advertised in Autotrader.

We spoke to Jan who was very friendly and helpful. When we said we would have a think and let him know he gave us no pressure.

We came back at the weekend and whilst my husband took it for a test drive one of the other sales person was really nice and polite. He told my daughter she could play with the toys in the toy box.

On inspection of the car we did find a leak in the boot.  When we spoke to Jan he was very professional and said it would be fixed before we came to pick the car up and if it did reoccur bring the car

back again and they would fix it. We found that response very refreshing. We were very impressed with Jan and will definitely recommend South Downs Car Sales to our family and friends.

Thank you Jan for such a helpful and stress free experience.

Mr Khan

"Provided a lot of extra care to the care and was very helpful with the paperwork making the entire experience pleasant."

Mr Jeremy Martin

"Dan and Jan, were very helpful and I felt very comfortable with dealing with them. It is assuring when they are associated with such a huge brand such as the RAC, and it Automatically makes you feel like your're in solid hands. They are not prepared to release the car to you untill they are 100% satisfied with it before handing it over to their customers. It is nice that they are not in a rush to get the money off you, but more interested in good feedback and happy customers. I would highly reccomend, and will definitley be going back when we need another car as they have many to choose from!! Thanks Lads "

Mr S Harmsworth Sparling

"My experience with South Downs Car Sales was exceptional. The guys that run it are extremely friendly, reassuring and polite. I dealt mainly with Dan who showed me the car I purchased, and took me on a test drive. I have never felt more at ease and secure in the decision I made than when I completed the transaction with him. "

Mrs Claire Roffey

"The people there were very helpful, applied no pressure and helped in every way they could. Experience was so good, my husband has gone back to them to buy himself a car as well!"

Mrs Swift

"No pressure sales, knowledgeable and friendly staff. They made a stressful process easy."

Richard Stevenson, Storrington

"I purchased an Audi R8 from South Downs Car Sales in mid-January 2016, viewed on Autotrader on Saturday, Test drove on Monday and picked up the motor on Friday. Couldn’t have been smoother!!!

I was offered a competitive rate for my trade in to which I accepted.

There were a couple of post-sale issues with the R8, which were sorted out straight away at no extra cost to myself.

I cannot fault South Downs Car Sales, they truly are a decent car sales outfit.

Thanks again Felix and all at South Downs Car Sales."

David Powell

Can't reccomend them enough! Dan gave me great advice, thank you..

Mr J Washer

Great car, great service, thanks for making this such a pleasant experience.

Mrs R King, Wivelsfield

"Have been looking for a VW Golf for ages, have been to a lot of the local sites here in Sussex and then came across South Downs Car Sales. Excellent customer care, they really took their time - no pressure whatsoever. I'm very happy with my Golf and would recommend anyone to visit them should they be looking to buy a car."

John Goldsmith, Haywards Heath

Visited site and was greeted by Dan, we test drove three cars and I decided upon a Toyota Avensis. Though his product knowledge was very thorough and found his help and advice to be of great use in helping me to make the right decision. Wouldn't hesitate to come back again in the future.

Nick Bell, H Heath

Great range of cars, we came up to buy a first car for my son, ended up buying ourselves one as well! Traded in our tired old Focus Estate for a Megane Estate, thought they were very fair with their valuation. Month or two after this my daughter needed a car and bought a Vauxhall Astra from them, thank you for looking after us all.

Mr M Baker, Steyning

If only all car sales sites were as friendly, thanks very much for my car which I love!

Nick Upton, Manchester

Found a BMW X5 advertised on your website and after speaking over the phone travelled all the way down from the Manchester. When we arrived we were relieved to see that the car was exactly as described and therefore bought it. Thanks very much to you both, wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. 

Chris Mills, Maidenhead

Brilliant service from the guys at South Downs Car Sales Ltd - I recently bought my car from the guys at South Downs Car Sales Ltd. What a great experience it was too! They were friendly and professional, gave me an excellent deal on my old car in part exchange and also gave me really good advice which helped me decide on the car I bought. So I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to change their car. I spent some time doing the rounds looking for a car in and around Sussex and they were by far the nicest people to deal with out of all the car dealerships I visited. Thank you South Downs Car Sales! I will definitely be back when I want to change my car next time!

A Hunter, Hassocks

Excellent support and aftercare These guys have a good selection of sound cars and patiently spent hours talking us through the various options to find the right car for us and we are delighted with the car we bought. I don't think it was a bargain basement price but it was competitively priced. I get the impression that they focus on sound quality at good prices rather than turn em out cheap approach. This became evident 5 and a half months later (and nearly 10000 miles later) when the cam chain became stretched and needed replacing (£500). The RAC were reluctant to pay up (wear and tear apparently) but South Down cars sorted everything out for us and promised us they would cough up even if RAC wouldn't. How fantastic is that!!! We've now put another few thousand miles on the clock and are extremely happy we bought our car from such a supportive and helpful company.

Mr R Martin

Thanks Guys!

Really great car, and really friendly service too. I'll definitely be recommending you.

M Goldsmith, Peacehaven

Wow, not often I find service like yours these days, a refreshing change to find a garage who really want to help you.

My Avensis is running like a dream so a big thank you again.

S Ware.

I just bought my VW Golf from South Downs Car Sales in Hassocks and I found it a really easy and straightforward experience. I normally worry about making such a big decision but Felix really couldn't have helped me more. He wasn't at all pushy, just polite and knowledgeable, and obviously just wanted to make sure that the car I bought was the right one for me. And I'm really pleased to say it is, I'm loving driving it.

So Thank you Felix, for all your help, I will come back again when I need another car, might not be for a while though!

J Woods, Worthing

Brilliant car, and brilliant service. Thank you!

Mr T Grant, Shoreham by Sea

What nice guys to do business with, really friendly and very helpful. My car had just been written off and I needed another one really quickly. They got it ready for me for the next day so I was mobile again without delay.

I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to buy a car.

Mrs F. Handley

Great to find nice people like you, loving my Astra and I will be back again next time.


Mr Tony Benton, Guildford

Thank you for your help, I especially appreciated your help with all the Santander finance arrangements.

Very professional, and very helpful all round.

Mr R Bramley, Portsmouth

Good deal on my old car in part exchange and a good deal on my new car, what more can I say?

Thanks a million for all your help.

J Wilson

A professional website, and when I arrived a service to match it. A really nice way to buy a car, I only wish all car dealers were like you! 

Mrs A Watson, Reigate, Surrey

A couple of weeks after I picked up my car I had a small problem with the central locking. I called Dan and Felix and they got it sorted and fixed straight away.

I just want to say thank you, and how nice to find a garage that do exactly as they promised they would.

My next car will be from you again, Thank you!

Mr C Jackson, Eastbourne

I want to share my great experience of buying my Vauxhall Vectra from South Downs Car Sales in Hassocks.

When my previous car failed its MOT I knew I had to buy a replacement, and after scouring the internet I found the Vectra at South Downs Car Sales. Right from the first telephone call I made to them they have been nothing but polite and easy to talk to. I made an appointment to see the car and as I live a fair distance away from them in Hatfield I first put a holding deposit down on it. Upon my arrival I was further impressed by how well presented all their cars are, and by how nice Felix was in dealing with me.

All in all I think this is how all other Car Sales garages should try to be. Friendly and easy to deal with.

Thank you again Felix.

Mrs E.C. Joseph, Hassocks, W Sussex

This is the second time I have bought a car from South Downs Car Sales and I will be back for another at some point! What really nice chaps to deal with. Very nice cars in stock which made it easy for me to choose my next car. This Mercedes is superb to drive, just as you said it would be, so thanks again for all your help and advice, keep doing what you are!!

Mr Bland, Worthing

Returned to SDCS to buy a second car, a basement-level runabout to save the mileage on the superb used Merc they sold me 12 months ago. I got the same impeccable, unpressured and very professional and personal service as last time, even though this was not, for them anyway, the sale of the century. Had earlier searched the net and encountered some, frankly scary, disingenuous dealers. This firm is a one-off. Shan't waste time elsewhere in the future - these guys are exactly what they say they are on their home page.

Matt Wickes

I was really impressed with Felix. We agreed to pay full price on the Focus he was offering if he tidied up a couple of things on the car we were interested in and the car looked really good when we collected it. He's offering an honest deal, is thoroughly pleasant to deal with and is working hard to build up the business. Lots of keenly priced cars, I would not hesitate in going back to South Downs car sales for our next vehicle, or recommending them to anyone.

Vicky Murray

Bought my daughters 1st car this week, the service at South Downs Car Sales is amazing. Very friendly and helpful would highly recommend visiting. Thank you so much.

Karen House

Bought a great car, It is so refreshing to find a car salesman who lets you take your time, has a very good knowledge of the cars he is selling and doesn't follow you around while you are looking at the cars. Hassle free and very easy purchase, will use again when I need another car.

Glenda Cannell

Excellent service, no pushy selling. Competitive pricing, would definitely buy from again.

Jerry Essex

So impressed with the courteous salesmanship of Dan. It's pleasing to know that there are really decent second hand car sales people around. Definitely would use South Downs Car Sales again!

Miles Atkins

Have just bought a Volvo V50 from South Downs Car Sales. Charming professional people who are a delight to do business with and an immaculate car at a competitive price.. Would certainly recommend them to anyone who seeks fair dealing. 

Giles Culver 

The salesman, Jan, was helpful and knowledgeable. He wasn't pushy and did not pressurise us into a decision, instead gave us the time to review our options and commit a decision. He also discussed the finance options and helped us arrive at the best deal.

Mrs Prater

Have bought a few cars from them, as has my mother in law. good service, reliable cars.

David Powell

"Very positive- the only car dealer I've dealt with who will genuinely give you the best advice for you- rather than for them. I bought my last car with them and have just part exchanged it back and bought my new one. They always advise three prices- what you could get for a private sale, what they'll give as part exchange and what they'll then sell it on for. How can you not trust that?!"

Let us know how we did
