  • Can recommend Agnew's either Boucher Road or Ladas Drive. Have bought from both and staff are very nice and not pushy. After sales is excellent.

    No connection - just a happy customer.

    'Agnews' is no longer a local company having been taken over by a big multinational a few months ago

    http://www.saltmarine.com/

    Can recommend saltmarine,have bought 2 cars from there including one for Sil in past year, (text removed by MSE Forum Team) was salesman I dealt with both times although im sure they are all similar.He done a very fair deal both times including advising Sil to sell her own car private to get a better price rather than trade it in,(and she did).

    Another vote for Agnews (Boucher Road).

    P.S. Avoid (text removed by MSE Forum Team) if you want trouble-free motoring!

    I bought second hand a couple of years ago from Agnews Ladas Drive, had some problems with the car but all taken care of without any hassle and a courtesy car provided.

    Can also recomend John Boyce in Newtownards.

    Hi, I would recommend Derek Loane Motors of Aughnacloy..I'm not from the area but happened to buy a second hand car from there a while back. It's a family-run business with Derek still working there, he seems to make a point of knowing his customers personally, and the staff are great. I think it's a registered Nissan dealership, but sells other makes too. I can't recommend them enough, and will certainly be going back to them again, even though it's a bit out of the way.

    Hope this helps..

    Ballylisk Car Sales (Ford) between Portadown and Tandragee are excellent. Ever heard a bad thing about them.

    Had a quick look on usedcarsni.com and Dunwoody Car Sales in Randalstown come up a fair bit claiming to be specialist in used MPVs. Anyone had any dealings with them?
  • Why not buy private? cheaper..keep the middle man out.
