Thread: Dublin car dealers - opinion required

    Dublin car dealers - opinion required

    Hi guys,

    Going to Dublin in the morning to look at a couple of cars for herself.

    2 places that I’ll definitely be going, along with probably some others, are:

    T P Autos in Ballyfermot

    OPC Motors in Walkinstown

    I know that part of town is associated with some shady operators, but there’s bound to be plenty of decent outfits too.

    Your thoughts please, on a postcard or by PM.

    Thanks!

    Try Mindaro Cars in JFK Estate. Behind Nagle Harris. Paul there has a decent mix.

    As always you’re buying the car not the dealer. Just assume everything is wrong and check everything. Not an opinion on the dealers mentioned but just in general. Check everything. If in any doubt walk away.

    Bill Griffin has huge stock and sell more second hand cars than anyone.

    Can I ask what you’re in the market for??

    Thanks for adding to the conversation Mick

    Looking for something automatic, she’s gotten really fond of my DSG A3.

    She’s coming from a 2008 B6 Passat, which has served her well

    She’s looking to spend up to €12.5k cash along with the Passat.

    Looking for more poke then she has with the Passat, but can be a smaller car too.

    It’s proving very hard to find something suitable!

    To be fair some great choice in private sales too, she'll get destroyed in trade in on her car

    She has her heart set on buying from a garage, although I’m guessing warranty would be a bit of a pain considering we’re living in west Waterford. All to be considered when dealing with specific dealers.

    I’d be open to a private buy, but I don’t fancy the hassle of selling a 280k km Passat on DoneDeal
