Brand new Kia Sportage from 14999. Seems like a good price

Motorpoint are used cars by dealers, not brand new cars, most cars are under 10k miles nearly new all with big savings against new car price.

Not brand new...

Original Poster

Yes they are. Delivery miles only.

The last four (1.6 GDi) at the bottom of the list says 'reg new'

not cheap

Pre Reg, not brand new, only £1100 saving against main dealer new.

Should be cheaper.

Can you find it cheaper? Cause if not it's still a deal.

Its not a deal?? oo are you the deal police?? hmm... as I read it it has delivery miles only and is cheaper than the main dealer, so logic dictates that then this is infact a deal.

unless you would like to offer the correct definition as to a deal as the quota required to be on this site?

Bought a Chevrolet Cruze from them and the car has been brilliant but after purchase a few queries I made via email were completely ignored and never got a response from anyone except to say being passed on to someone else. Their customer service is terrible but then once delivered and dealing with your local dealer you don't need them but if I had problems with the delivery I could imagine it would have been difficult. The savings I got on the Cruze was about 55% off retail due to Chevrolet leaving the UK market so I was more than happy with the deal. I could not recommend their customer service at all though. It just feels like they are constantly busy and lose interest completely once the sale is made.

Mine was definitely new, it was registered to me as the first owner, not pre-registered.

Cold, not a lease ;-)

If you can bare having to deal with Motorpoint!

Hot. In the past I bought a car from Motorpoint & they were very good, one of the best. I was recently going to buy a car. It was at another branch. I paid a deposit & it was moved from one town to another. We didn't like the drive so without any arguing the money was returned to us. After the test drive we had a lovely coffee & could have had tea, burger etc free. They are by far the best dealer I have used & I've used a lot.

are these not imports with a lesser warranty?

Bought 4 cars from motorpoint over the years never had a problem with any of them and service is second to none ... Good deal

go into any decent dealer and you will get the same or better treatment - merc or audi dealers give you free tins of sweets or mints, water, canned drinks, coffee/tea, biscuits without having to buy anything - not cheap stuff either

Had a great experience buying a car at Motorpoint, the car had a slight mark under the bumper when we went to view it but they repaired it there and then. Much better experience than my local Hyundai garage who got annoyed, walked away and left us sitting at the desk never to return when I asked if he would match a price from another Hyundai branch? I got the car from Motorpoint with a bigger discount, less mileage and it was newer! Much happier now.

So is this deal for a non 4x4, 1.6 petrol, manual, bottom of the range, Kia Sportage then?

Seems like motorpoint are generally ok but after purchase customer service does drop like a cliff it seems with most negative points after purchase. I don't think this is unexpected for this type of dealer though. There may also be a difference between local customers and people like myself who bought online and had the car delivered. I guess that distance barrier means they can get away with inferior service.

Lol. probably...

Just one comment about Motorpoint 'service'.

They say they service the cars before sale, but my (one) experience is that it wasn't done. EMS light came on after 1000 miles and dealer that fixed it showed me a filthy black air filter which obviously hadn't been changed.

I have to say, though that they did refund the cost of the service I then had to get done.

Yep but they have others as well. Why can you find them any cheaper then??

I've just noticed the comment....

"Includes £510 of fitted extras."

Metallic paint!!! Fitted?

I bought a Subaru Impreza from them a few years ago and it was brand new. It was imported from Cyprus, full UK spec and 5k cheaper than a main dealer

For £15k, you can get a used BMW 520d which will be by far better.

520D are rubbish....I hate BMW and have had 2 nearly new....

Anyway....check Motorpoint carefully as they deal in imports too

Agreed. I used them and they were great - also offered a much better price on part exchange than I could find anywhere else. They also didn't even take a second look at the car I was part exing, meaning they didn't try and knock down the price for the big scratch down the side. Couldn't fault them.

Are they actually comparable? The BMW is more a performance rep mobile with poor reliability and expensive parts and this is a sports utility vehicle from a much more reliable brand with a long warranty, more practical and less fun to drive. The average repair bill of a BMW 5 series is £500 there abouts and buying secondhand ensures you'll be paying that sooner rather than later.

Didnt jump down anyones throat asked a question.... But thank you for your input. It was most useful and informative. Rest soundly knowing that any future posts I wish to make I will send to you for you to proof read and sanction where appropriate.

Not sure if it helps anyone but our Kia Ceed has just finished it's seven year warranty with free repairs at any Kia dealership. Need to maintain yearly service but we've been impressed by the way they've identified and repaired various items...Check warranty (imports etc.) but shouldn't have to rely on Motorpoint...

​thats car sales for you. once they have your money, your on your own. they are right up there with mobile phone call centers and estate agents.

you should compare to brand new bmw X5

I would advise anyone against buying a Kia Sportage based upon recent problems with my wifes Sportage
We have a 2yrs 11 months Sportage 2.0 diesel KX 4 wheel drive. Fully serviced.
Spectacular engine failure having only completed 21,000 miles.
Kia want £900 to take the engine apart to decide if it is a manufacturing defect.
Their warranty and customer service is not worth s**t

KIA are obv not more reliable than BMW. If you even want a SUV, you don't buy a Kia. Spend that money on a normal car.
I have a E60 525i and a friend has a F10 520d and neither have had engine troubles.
Get a Mercedes E Class for £15k then.

That's disgusting, just in case it's the dealer, contact Kia UK and the motoring press, like What Car, Sunday Times or Honest John, usually gets things moving.

I've heard a lot in the past about how worthwhile their 7 year warranty actually is.

Preferable to the self assembly option.

Motorpoint don't accept haggling so I don't know if to buy my next car from the Burnley branch. Got some new 2015 `15` plate Ford Focus's around £1500 cheaper than Evan Halshaw Ford.

Only read as far as "chevrolet" pmsl

My wife has owned 2 sportages and been really happy with them (hence 2), we did have a couple of minor problems on the first and all were quickly resolved by the supplying dealer under Kia warranty. The comments above regarding payment to check engine failure is not uncommon with all manufacturers, there are 2 reasons for this, 1 is not to admit responsibility upfront until problem is sourced and secondly you would be suprised how well serviced new cars are neglected by owners not topping up oil and putting wrong fuel in, my dealings with Kia have been positive. As for this deal is not that great to be honest as my local dealer is offering this bottom of the range model at £16100 inc met paint. I know from prevoius dealing I could get another £500-£800 off that price and thats in any colour you want with reassurance its a UK car with full 7 year warrranty from supplying dealer who I find are great if you actually buy from them. But this is bottom of the range they are trying to offload, poor spec in comparison to rest of range and underpowered with poor mpg (dont believe the figures), our 1.7 Diesel is around 46mpg no matter how its driven.
