David Benwell was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. He was clearly committed to providing excellent service without a hint of the pushy approach I’ve experienced at other dealerships.

Mrs C

Ian Grieve sourced a vehicle for me that fitted the bill well. Our local dealer in Devon wasn't able to do this.The sales front man at Ian Grieve, James, was efficient without being pushy. I flew from Devon to Falkirk to collect the car and was collected at the airport -- all pretty efficient. The vehicle handover was a bit rushed but otherwise things were good. There are a couple of minor issues with the car (split door seal, a scuff in the plastic that had presumably been filled by the Subaru ex-mgt car pdi gang). The excellent local dealer in Devon is going to replace the door seal. The car took ages to get out of Subaru / IM's hands and into the dealer -- this was driving me and James nuts....and surely they could have made a better job of the scuffed trim in this time. The job they did was cosmetically fine but not tough enough.

Mr Peter Oldham

Ian Grieve were great because the salesman (David) listened to what was important to me and did not have a "pushy" manner. It is said that people buy from people and I will walk away if I don't like a sales person's attitude. Working on that premise, David is a real asset to the company. My car is great and although I have not had it for very long, I think it is the right car for me.

Ms Anne Maver

I would recommend Ian Grieve to friends and family because buying a car was made so easy. I done the research on the car previous to visit so I knew my mind was set on it. I just needed reassurance.

Miss Aleksandra Dratwinska

Ian Grieve were great because my salesman David was really friendly and very helpful. This was the first time I have bought a car and I would happily go there again.

Miss P

The experience at Ian Grieve was great because the salesman made the whole experience of trading in my vehicle for another one so seamless and easy.

Miss Alice Lavinia Bowman-Vaughan

Ian Grieve were helpful because they didn’t use any sales speak and listened to what I was looking for. Seemed very honest and trustworthy.

Miss Cowie

My experience at Ian Grieve was positive because, Gavin was exceptional in his knowledge and understanding of the Subaru product and was paramount in giving me confidence in the car. 2 months on and I'm ecstatic about the STI I bought from them, awesome fun and in the recent snow such reassurance even on normal tyres, on winter tyres I can only imagine what a workhorse it would be.... hats off to Subaru, other premium cars really don't come close to this reassurance and realisability with their so called 4 wheel drive...

Mr Owain P

Ian Grieve were great because of their attention to detail

Mr R

I had a great experience at Ian Grieve because all my questions about the car I bought were fully answered with no flannel.
