"Many thanks to Jason and the service team. Made my day yesterday, just called in to book a routine service. Expecting to wait a week or two, only to get fitted in immediately and given a lift home. Also picked up a few hours later, cleaned in and out of the car too. Can't beat that for service. WELL DONE "

"Bought my daughter a car for a surprise, the staff here are the best, so friendly and all like a big happy family. They couldn't do enough for us and kept it a surprise when we arrived. Special thanks to the sales staff Aaron, Iain and Jamie who arrange everything to be a surprise for my daughter. They even sorted out the private number plate, which I though would take ages, however all done on the day. "
- Steph, Bangor
"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."
- David Huntley, Antrim,
"Thank you so much to the service team for being so kind and helpful in my hour of need. Too many times I've received terrible after sales service when purchasing a car, but you really went over and above yesterday and we were so grateful. "
- Melissa McGovern, Service Customer, 23/08/17
"I have just purchased my second car from Philip Petersen. Special thanks to Aaron Orr who dealt with me. He is a fabulous young guy and really went above and beyond to help get us our new family car. The staff are so friendly and nothing is a hassle to them. Always good deals. Can't recommend them highly enough. Super team. Thank you again"
- Jennifer Skillen, C3, Bangor, 27/07/17
"My wife and I had a great experience with Philip Petersen. Jamie took us through all the options available to us and we are delighted with our new family car. He arranged to have a dog gate fitted for us picking the car up which meant we were good to go. Can't recommend them highly enough."
- Jonny Cash, Newtownards, 2017
"We've been getting our cars from Philip Petersen for a few years now and are extremely impressed with efficiency, friendliness and value. Staff are real people - not pressurised sales like many other showrooms. Have just bought second-hand Grand Vitara from them without even seeing it - because fully confident of their recommendation. Delighted with car - delivered fully serviced in mint condition."

"Hi I just felt I had to email you to express my satisfaction with the staff at Petersen Bangor Co Down. Jason, Jamie and Graham are so professional in the way they handle any queries that you might have and nothing is too much trouble to them. We have purchased 4 vehicles from them in recent years and after 40 years of buying cars we would now not consider going anywhere else. I would appreciate it if you would forward this email on to the owner of Petersen's and to the appropriate Suzuki Dept. on our behalf. Many thanks Kieran & Selina. "
- Kieran and Selina Smyth, Grand Vitara SZ4, Portaferry
"Jason, Thank you and the team at Philip Petersen for your help with the Jimny. The service both we and the vehicle receive at the dealership is second to none. Helpful on the telephones, showroom floor, service desk, courtesy vehicles, pick up/drop off, workshop team, warranty and service checks. What more could a customer ask for? We have great confidence in Suzuki as a product and even more so in the dealership support. Thanks for all your help with our motoring needs to date. "
- Neil and Ali Jackson, Moneyrea, Jimny

- Glyn and Jane Harbinson
"Simply exceptional service. At all levels your staff treated me with respect and courtesy in a non-patronising manner, which wasn't the case in the numerous showrooms I visited before yours! Thanks to all of the team for their efficiency, kindness and professionalism. As this was my first time buying a pre-enjoyed car it was very much appreciated! "
- Sharon Adamson
"My dealings with Philip Petersen were pleasantly easy. I was just passing and saw their Alto advertised. I was given a test drive and dealt with by a very pleasant professional salesman (Michael Kwelu) I looked at other cars that day, but came straight back to Petersen's and purchased it that same day."
- Simone Wilson
"A good experience all round, no issues, thanks."
- Brian Crilly, New Swift, Bangor

- Mr Holt, Conlig
"I had a second service done on my Jeep Patriot. I got a quote from the main dealer but it was very expensive, so I shopped around. Philip Petersen quoted me an excellent price and fully explained what I was getting for my money, including using genuine parts and the recommended oil grade so not affecting my warranty. Excellent value and service and they even washed my Jeep. I will definitely use them again!"
- David Angus, Kircubbin, Jeep Patriot
"The service is excellent, which keeps me coming back time after time. "
- Mrs McBride, Newtownards, Skoda Fabia
"I recently bought a new Suzuki from Philip Petersen, and can truly say that I couldn't be happier with the service I received. The dealer - Michael - knew exactly what was right for me, and I was truly surprised at the affordability of their offers. I couldn't have imagined a better deal. I can hardly believe I've been able to drive away my first new car! Michael was very attentive, and made everything clear to me as we went through. I was able to test-drive the car, and I was shown all of its workings so that I felt comfortable driving it away. I couldn't have wished for a friendlier, more accommodating, or straightforward experience of buying a car. "
- Erin Halliday, Bangor
