By Year


"A pleasant and very relaxed, smooth experience Its obvious from the moment you step into Influence Cars they are hand picked and selected vehicles. Dealing with Tom at Influence, he's a very personable friendly chap who has extensive experience in the industry - and it shows with his knowledge! Tucked away in Leatherhead Influence Cars treat you as a friend, rather than a customer - I'll definitely be contacting them again when I'm back on the market for a vehicle!"

James Spencer purchased a Audi S4 Cabriolet on 25/06/15


"Where should I start from? Decent experience, everything went smooth and when there was an issue coming up, they did their best to sort this out. I asked them to keep the car a few mores days in order to sort out my parking permit and they did it without complaining. Everything went smooth, car is amazing and their support after I bought the car is amazing. They feel more like friends that they are doing their best to help you than a dealer who just wants your money."

Ken Fox purchased a Honda CR-V on 18/01/15


"5.0. A dealer that I would go back to. Buying a car can be a stressful experience. What car do I buy? Where do I go? Who can I trust? Will I get a fair price for my car? Etc..
From my very first contact with James at Influence Cars the experience was very different to any other dealer that I have dealt with. His wording in the initial e-mail was considerate, fair and helpful. When I met him, I felt as though I was with a friend rather than a car dealer. Not the stereo typical remarks, rather how can we make this work for you. The cars I guess do the 'real' talking, in that they were clean, well maintained and in my view on at reasonable prices.
In the circumstances I purchased a car from them and would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and family.
I traveled 76 miles to get to them, but consider this worthwhile given the service that I have received."

Aneel Sharma purchased a ALPINA D3 on 23/11/14


"Very good experience no hard sales pressure . Sales staff very helpful good PX deal on my VW Golf would recommend to my friends and family 5*"

Kerry Smith purchased a BMW 1 Series Convertible on 20/07/14


"After looking for a specific car for some time and seeing countless poor examples I stumbled across one advertised with Influence Cars. Feeling rather sceptical after seeing so many poor examples previously, I reluctantly went to view the car. I was pleasantly surprised, the car was immaculate with all the usual bits that would form part of the haggle (MOT, Service, tyres etc etc) already done.
The company is a small business which I feel gave them an edge on the quality and pricing of their vehicles. Whilst I was there I took the liberty to look around the other cars in their showroom and all were as immaculate as the one I was interested in.
The salesman knew the car inside out and wasn't pushy like many used car dealers. I felt they were very transparent in their approach and felt confident everything was as they said it was.
Needless to say, the car I went to view is now sat on my driveway, and after a week of driving it remains to put a smile on my face.
It was an absolute pleasure purchasing from Influence cars and would highly recommend them."

I found the vehicle to be first class, and I found James to be a very professional, friendly person, and he gave me confidence in the transaction. The vehicle was superb and I was so pleased I had made that journey for the right car. James was excellent and reassuring with his communication and I can thoroughly recommend this garage."

"Purchase of BMW 1 series convertible - couldn't have been better. After having spent Saturday looking at other 1 series convertibles all over the South East, I agreed to meet with James on the Sunday at his Leatherhead premises. The experience couldn't have been better. James had very good knowledge of the specific car and it was offered at a great price. I got a very good trade in price for our old car and James was helpful all the way through the buying process. Post-sale, James has resolved a couple of minor things and is always courteous and available to discuss anything. He dealt with all the paperwork very efficiently. I'd thoroughly recommend Influence Cars to any new prospective purchasers. Our new car was well turned out and very clean and tidy. Thank you James."

"I recently purchased a Honda CRV from Influence cars. Having looked at a few cars I decided to buy from this dealer as the car itself was very nicely presented & the staff were very knowledgeable, but most importantly the purchase was completely un-pressured & handled in a very professional manner. I would certainly recommend this dealer I hope to buy from them again in the future."

Alexander Doble purchased a Peaguet 308 on 23/11/13


"Spotted the web site and the likely vehicle. Telephoned James who answered all my questions and as a result I placed a small deposit to hold the car for two days. Hence, test drove the BMW, liked it and purchased it. Everything was as he conveyed to us and the car itself exceeded expectations. In all a very pleasant buying experience from very nice people. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone."

Trevor and Gill Norman purchased a BMW X3 on 04/11/13


"A very smooth car buying experience. The vehicle for sale together with its clean and decent condition, full description, FSH, quality photographs on their online ebay dealership impressed me. I was treated with respect from the initial phone conversation to the day I visited in person and made the purchase. I received helpful advice and information. They went out of their way to administer a private plate transfer to the new car too. Highly recommended!"

Shaun Murray purchased a Toyota Rav 4 on 04/10/13


"We purchased our car recently from James at Influence and have to say it has been the best car buying experience we have ever had.

We found them to be thorough and understanding of our needs. We would definitely recommend them."
