Review: Hillside Garage
Well was hoping not to right this review as at first everything was good..but bought my volvo xc60 from Johnson back in Sept 21..the car had been serviced before I picked it up..and being from a volvo specialist thought I was in safe hands..anyway 2 months past and the warning to put 0.5 litres of oil came on the dash..this after 600 miles..so I contacted Johnson to which he said..they use a bit of oil..should be fine..thought it was maybe a little short at service..and carried on..now in April 22 and I have now had to put in 4 litres of oil in less than 4 thousand miles..Johnson says..its fine..volvos do that..there is nothing wrong..ive checked on lots of volvo forums and this is quite drastic use of oil compared to others..Johnson says..contact the warranty company ..but I can tell you they won't repair it..wow..so the warranty company have no come back at all..waste of money..asked Johnson to buy the car at a 2 grand loss for me..said he couldn't offer me that..so im stuck with a car I have no faith in and a big loss to my pocket..I find this garage totally disgusting on there response..I would avoid at all costs..not the decent guy I thought

Review: MES Pest Control Ltd
WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE!! Booked pest control for mice situation. Paid £150 for 3 visits with a “guarantee until the problem’s solved”. During the first visit, Marcus says the first step is to simply find out where the mice are coming from so poison was left in potential areas to see for the next visit. He quickly took £150, my contact number and emailed a receipt and appointment reminder for the next visit. Time of the next visit, no call to say what happened. Contacted him several times and no response until he was contacted from a different number. Then when I finally got through to his phone, he didn’t apologise until I had to explain to him over and over again that he didn’t ring the contact number I gave him on the first visit, or even knock on the door at the time scheduled in the email confirmation. Apparently, their policy (his excuse for his lack of service), is that they don’t knock on doors unless the phone is answered. When I asked for a refund for the remaining service, he rudely responded that I could email but he is the boss and won’t open the email so it will probably be a waste of time. So much for the guarantee until the problem is solved. He then went on to make further degrading, insulting and assumptive comments about myself, my home, and lack of knowledge on the industry he is a apparently “a boss” in. Please save your time and energy and don’t allow a negative, unreliable, unprofessional, inconsiderate human like this in your home. I’d rather the mice in my home again than someone like that.

Review: Adil Specialist Cars
I never post negative reviews but after such abysmal customer service, I had to share my experience. I bought a BMW M135i from Farrakh in July 2021. I was promised a 6 month RAC warranty with the car, as is standard for any car bought from Adil Specialist Cars (apparently). When driving the car home, a warning popped up saying the tyre pressure monitoring system had failed. (Upon further investigation, I found that it had failed some time ago and Farrakh had simply reset the warning so I wouldn’t know during the test drive!) I decided I would claim on the warranty to get it fixed but 3 months on, I still do not have any sort of warranty for the vehicle. The MOT is coming up and this will cause the vehicle to fail the MOT, so I am now going to have to pay out of my own pocket to get this fixed. I have left a ridiculous amount of messages for Farrakh and this is still yet to be resolved. For 3 months I have been messaging him almost every day. He reads the messages on WhatsApp and simply ignores them. He promises he will call but never bothers. Note that this was not the case before I had bought the car - but as soon as he had my money, he began ignoring my messages. I regularly have to message every day for a week before he will actually respond to me, and the response never contains any useful updates or anything of the sort. Take a look at the WhatsApp chat history: https://imgur.com/a/FGTCqk9 If you purchase a car from Adil Specialist Cars and there is an issue, this is the sort of customer service you will receive. The car was due a service when I bought it, so I took it for a service a few days after purchasing the car. BMW told me that the last service it had was supposed to be a full service but it had actually only had an oil service - meaning the car had done 30,000 miles without a full service. BMW recommend a full service every 12,000 miles or every 12 months! The service also highlighted some existing issues with the car. See the print-out from the BMW garage here: https://imgur.com/a/6oSc8Ls (Slight play in steering rack, Front tyres are wearing on the edges, Hydrobearing bushes are slightly cracked, Front brake discs are lipped and corroded, Front and rear brake pads are 3100 miles on the dash, O/S strut brace is incorrectly fitted and threads are damaged, Rear diffuser is touching exhaust). Farrakh told me the car had 4 almost new tyres, which was obviously not true! The front splitter of the vehicle also snapped whilst driving down the motorway only a couple of months after having bought the vehicle! Image here: https://imgur.com/a/GrPzyv7 This image also shows the registration number of the vehicle, feel free to find this car on Adil Specialist Cars’ website so you know this is not a made-up review! It is clear to me that Farrakh Adil does not care about his customers once he has their money. He will lie to you, ignore your messages, avoid resolving problems and sell you a car with issues. Thankfully, the car runs & drives fine but I dread to think what position I would be in if the car had an engine problem - after-sale customer service is utterly non-existent. I did my homework and looked up reviews for Adil Specialist Cars before buying - I should have listened to the negative ones. He also did not send me a link to give him a review, presumably to avoid the “Verified Purchase” tag on my review. The behaviour and customer service has been nothing short of poor, deceitful and probably bordering on criminal! If you look up Adil Specialist Cars on Companies House, you will notice that the accounts are overdue by almost an entire year and the company address is listed as in Scotland, not in Huddersfield. Ask yourself whether you want to purchase a vehicle from such a disorganised individual, and whether a legitimate, trustworthy business would use an incorrect company address. Search online yourself or take a look here: https://imgur.com/a/X1EJBBV I like to think that I am smart enough to spot a dodgy dealer but unfortunately I fell for Farrakh’s charade. I could have saved myself all of this stress and money if I had simply bought from a reputable, well-known dealer. Don’t make the same mistake as me. I will never buy another car from Adil Specialist Cars. Buyer beware!
