Brilliant day out - 320 mile round trip.

Went without a hitch, well just the one. The PDQ machine went PDblank, so had to take our shiny new 2tone C without paying :thumb:

Highly recommended friendly dealer

    A few weeks ago I returned to have the 'Esseesse' kit fitted to my A500C.
    Totally extraordinary service, everyone was friendly and helpful.
    My loan car was an Abarth Evo Esseesse for the day

    Well worth the trip to the west country

    Would I recommend?   YES :thumb:

    Would I buy again?  Could well do

    Went Vospers in Exeter for rear parking sensors and an oil change.

    Great reception from the desk, great service and courtesy car ( well it was an under powered Punto), and got my car back nice and clean, inside out.

    All in all, I was treated extremely well and looked after how customers should be.

    Fiat Vospers in Exeter , (sorry I said the F word) thank you .....

    I didn't realise but they can service Abarth but can't do any warranty work.

    A big thanks again ....

    Well a 450 mile round trip to buy a new car that I could of bought from my local Abarth dealer 20 mins away shows how good a salesman John is  :thumb:

    Excellent service and communication  :thumb:

    John has an almost limitless knowledge base when it comes to Abarths and it shows that he cares about the cars and his customers  :thumb:

    Would love to take it back there to be serviced, and we were offered a very competitive service scheme, but the distance doesn't make it cost effective  :thumbd:
    If only we lived closer  ;)

    Thoroughly recommended   :thumb:  :thumb:  :thumb:

    As above, I recommend people to John all the time when they ask - "where do you get these" he's a top bloke and so much so I took  the service package  ;D
    Now that I'm a grown up I drive a sensible grey 595 Competizione with grey leather sabelt seats and yellow brake calipers. It's jolly nice! It's got a name - ' Razzogrigio' Now with a custom S/S group N style exhaust, black Esseesse wheels and a GTT induction kit, all sitting on Eibach springs.

    Hi there,

    Bought my Abarth 595 Competizione 3 weeks ago from John at Vospers and have to say the service down there was amazing.

    From cups of tea from walking in the first time to taking me through every last detail in the handover 8 days later, the process was incredibly smooth, polite and friendly. Only had a 60 odd mile round trip to pick the car up but would probably drive, like a few have, 300 miles just to get the same service again.

    Thoroughly recommended and am definitely buying another car from there when the time comes, though hopefully not for a few years at least  :D

    This post is about 13 months too late..oops! Having bought our first 500 Abarth from John at Vospers in 2010 we decided 18 months later to replace it so gave John a call and as usual he was brilliant and came up trumps, we replaced it with a white esseesse and added a monza exhaust and white wheels.  So we headed off to Plymouth to collect it, all the way from bonnie Scotland ( why would you buy an Abarth from anyone else apart from Vospers, it is a no brainer for us). John was meant to be off the day we picked the car up but came in especially, now that's service for you.
      Now organising another road trip back to Vospers....watch this space....Mrs Cookie dealt with John this time and is really looking forward to meeting him.

    Great service as always.

    John H is a top bloke and i can't recommend him enough to anyone looking at buying an Abarth.
    His knowledge of all things Abarth is 2nd to none and always goes out of his way to help.

    I've purchased 2 cars from him now and will definitely be going back to him in the future for another.

    AMAZING service from Vospers in Plymouth, John really knows his stuff and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience from ordering to collection, Vospers Abarth were just superb!!!! Can't recommend them highly enough.

    This review is long overdue as I have now had three Abarths from John since 2009.

    What can I say that hasn't already been said above.

    John has a rare combination of enthusiasm and knowledge of the cars he sells and is someone who will be pragmatic in order to get the best outcome for his customers.

    He is patient and happy to explain any of the intricacies of any of the models and work to any customer requests. He communicates often and offers special touches above and beyond what you would expect to make your Abarth purchase even more special. e.g. taking photos of the car before arrival to whet your appetite before pickup!

    He is the only person I have bought any of my Abarths from, travelling 800 miles in order to experience his great customer service.  I see no reason why this won't continue in future.

    In summary, he is a real asset to Abarth here in the UK and I hope that his presence will continue for many years to come.

    Many thanks,

    Lewis

    A little late in providing feedback - sorry John501. The service provide was great, no hard sell, now trying to sell me mods that I didn't want/need, just a nice adult conversation about a car that goes VROOM!

    John was excellent and provided me with great advice to make sure I got the car that I wanted.

    Highly recommend Vospers Plymouth to anyone looking for an Abarth, they know everything and provided a very high level of customer service.

    I am very pleased with the level of service that John and his team have given me, I only went in to browse, but ended up buying the 500 bi-colore. At no time did I feel any pressure to buy, but John was always on hand to help and advise as needed. Then when I collected the car John took his time and went through every detail with me until I was happy.
    Great service, and I now am the proud owner of an amazing car. ;D

    1st post on the forum!!!

    Just arrived home after a 500 mile round trip to visit John

    The upshot of the visit - order placed for a Cordolo Red 595c Competizione 180

    Having recently visited our local dealer in order to start our search for my wife's new car and my "weekend toy" where in fairness we received a reasonably good level of service,  I subsequently came across this forum and quickly realised that John appeared to be the font of knowledge with all things abarth. Luckily i was able to coincide a work appointment in Devon with a visit to Vospers.

    As soon as i arrived John was waiting for me and quickly proceeded to answer all my questions, of which there were many  :-[ One of the main concerns was that nobody could previously tell me when the 595c Competizione 180 order book was due to open and if the colour we wanted was available (the 2015 price list i had been given previously was a mind of USELESS information)

    John had taken the time to speak to the head of abarth UK and get the very latest information, he patiently answered my endless questions and gave a honest and knowledgeable opinion to them all. I can recommend to anybody regardless of their location in the UK that it is worthwhile the journey to see John. Good professional customer service is becoming harder to find and he clearly knows his stuff.

    Thank you John...

    Now the wait starts, delivery is unlikely before September and patience has never been my strong point  :whistle: :D :D

    Picked up my second 595 Competizione from Vospers 3 days ago.  Superb service as always from John and the team there. Although there has been some delays on building the car out of Vospers control, I was kept up to date constantly.  Communication therefore is again outstanding.

    The car is immaculate and I'm very pleased with the service yet again. I'll be going to Vospers again I have no doubt.
