"After years of avoiding the dreadful "Boucher Road" showroom experience, I finally bought my first new car this week - and was so impressed with Philip Petersens! I wanted to buy something more economical and read good reports about the Swift...so headed to Bangor to have a look. Around two hours later, I was the proud owner of a sparkling brand new blue Swift - the sportiest, most responsive, most comfortable small car I've ever driven. In the space of a couple of hours, I'd had a cup of coffee and a test drive, while Simon got me a great price on my old Grand Vitara, arranged new finance, rang my insurance company and got them to e-mail him a new cover note, printed a tax disk, arranged for new number plates to be fitted - and then even nipped down the road to put petrol in the car! I've had a couple of used cars from Petersens before and have always been delighted with their after-sales service. The staff are always genuinely friendly and avoid that dreadful cheesiness that other showrooms seem to encourage in their employees. Many thanks to Jason, Jamie, Graham, Ross and Simon for your expert help. It's very much appreciated."
