My wife was looking to change our toyota verso which we had bought from sdm in 2018 .
She liked the hyndai tuscon she had seen on their website . I was off on Saturday so after doing shopping we went in to see it . It had already had 2 test drive that morning . Took it for test drive for her to get feel of it . She loved it . So when we went back . David sorted paper work out . Got fair price for verso . So she picks it up Thursday .
Hope there a bunch of flowers to go with it that will cheer her no end too

Great service from a great team

Recently bought an aygo from the Falkirk branch and Brian was great. I was kept informed throughout the whole buying process only slight niggle was I thought the car would come with a full tank of petrol however it was only 3/4 full. Not a huge issue as the car is great for fuel!

Helen Carlisle


"I just wanted to write to you to express my sincere thanks to Jeff Chu for restoring my faith in used car dealerships. Jeff is an absolute asset to your business and I do hope you appreciate all his hard work, honesty and efforts. Because of the true professionalism Jeff showed when I recently made a purchase from you; I then went on to make a second purchase within a matter of only a few weeks. Both car purchases have worked out very well so far and Jeff's follow up customer service is first class. Never have I experienced such friendly follow-up when buying a car. I have also never enjoyed buying a car so much and I must say this is all down to Jeff and his non-pushy sales techniques and friendly manner. I have since passed on my thanks to Jeff but more importantly, I have made many of my family, friends and colleagues aware of the great customer service I experienced from SDM and most importantly Jeff.

When making my next purchase of a new car I will look no further than SDM and hope Jeff is still around!"

We were lucky to have her, she was a credit to your organisation."
