    Default Motorpoint, are they any good?

    As above, has anyone used these people?

    There's an interesting car here:-

    http://www.motorpoint.co.uk/(S(gce0h...963&diesel=yes

    What do you think?

    I drove the 140bhp one & it was nice but a bit sluggish.

    The 170bhp should be better?

    The Sport is a nice spec too.

    It was >£20k new!

    Their website is really slow btw, it takes an age to come up.

    Ian, bought loads of cars from their derby site..only ever had one issue ( transporter damage) but that was sorted out really quickly..

    they are a bit 'take it or leave it' but they are okay to deal with.. dealt with far worse..

    as for the passat..not my cup of tea..but if you like it..

    I looked seriously at a Passat as a replacement for my old SRi. It too was a sport model, but there was something not quite there... Just couldn't place it. A handsome thing, especially in dark metallics.

    Shaz wasn't at all keen though.

    My boss has one, but likes the look of my Siggy better!

    Thanks guys!

    I know what you mean with the Passat.

    I expected to be blown away, but there was just something not quite there.

    I would assume the 170 sport would be a better car (I tested a 140 SE, it was a bit sluggish)

    Just keeping my options open!

    Prob won't take this one anyway.

    The price is good though, but if you see one there must be more about!

    Motorpoint have some decent cars at decent prices. My friend picked up a Nissan Primera at a very good price. Unfortunately there were some problems with it and it took about 2 months to get it properly sorted. He had to resort to threats of legal action.

    Much like any car supermarket; good prices but don't expect a lot of back-up if things go wrong.

    I got a 8 month old 2.2 Signum Elite for 12 grand a year ago from them - which is about half price with 10000 miles on it...
