The difference with buying a car from us is our open and honest approach to car sales.
We’re based in Newcastle, but we understand customers from further afield meaning many of our cars are sold to Sydney, the Central Coast and Northern NSW.
Chris was extremely helpful and accommodating both during the sale and afterwards making the process and experience stress-free, easy and pleasant. He went above and beyond on numerous aspects, with a no-quibble approach that was much appreciated! Even though The Good Car Garage is some 700km from me, I would without doubt look to Chris when I'm next in the market for a vehicle. Thank you Chris!
Chris was an absolute pleasure to deal with when purchasing my car. None of the usual used car salesman bullshit just honest information and left it to you to make the decision. Car was presented on time and in expected condition. thanks Chris
Chris was an absolute delight and was more than helpful throughout the whole process. He was happy to answer any questions I had and I’m so very very happy with my new car! Thanks Chris!
Margie Willis to The Good Car Garage I bought a Skoda Yeti, from Chris Fren at the Good Car Garage, last week. It is just the right car for me a small SUV, which sits me higher but has the VW basics I love from my old Golf. Chris was extremely helpful, and he only has very good quality second hand cars, tending to be European, there was no pressure to buy, just an expectation the I'd do the right and sensible thing for me. Thanks for the experience Chris I'll tell my friends.
My partner and I traded in our car last week and couldn't be happier with our purchase! Chris was friendly, honest, professional, and very clear throughout the entire process, and gave us a very fair deal on our trade-in. The Good Car Garage is tucked away in Wickham but definitely worth the visit. We will be recommending them to all our family and friends. Thanks Chris!
My experience with the Good Car Garage was totally stress free, actually enjoyable, unlike most normal dealerships! Chris was prompt to respond to my email enquiry, always available by phone, very flexible with viewings and accommodated signing of paperwork around our needs. On top of the convenience he was knowledgeable, genuine, and an all round nice guy.
Chris is an extremely helpful, friendly, honest, authentic professional who went the extra mile to make our purchase streamlined and worthwhile. A good experience all round.
We recently purchased a vehicle from Chris and are extremely happy with every aspect of the sale. We live in country NSW and had to travel to see the car and again to pick it up. Chris went out of his way to ensure everything went smoothly and that the travel was well worth it. Chris was a pleasure to deal with and we feel completely confident with our purchase. We highly recommend this business to any prospective buyers!
Chris was a dream to deal with! Not the typical car salesman we usually expect to deal with - he is one of a kind - Genuine, open and friendly and fantastic value with the additional bonuses he throws in (rego, 12 months warranty, 12 months roadside.) We absolutely love our new "love bug" and highly recommend The Good Car Garage (and the good guy - Chris!)
I bought my 2012 VW Tiguan from Chris at the Good Car Garage in May 2018 The Sale was faultless from start to end , from phone enquiries , negotiation on price and the quick and courteous service at acquisition . Chris even chased up a spare key and sent it on at no extra cost ! Thanks Chris Sharon Worthing Hat Head
Excellent service from Chris and his unique business. Very high quality vehicles at competitive prices we are very happy with our new Audi. Very professional and no car yard gimmicks. Highly recommended - buy with confidence.
I recently purchased a 2012 Renault Megane RS from Chris at the Good Car Garage and the service I received was brilliant. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to purchase a Euro car or any car for that matter. Chris was helpful and pleasant in all of our interactions and made the purchase very simple by linking me in with his finance broker who was also very helpful.
The modestly named “The Good Car Garage” maybe “The Great Car Garage” would be more apt. Chris, the owner, is a very amicable, meticulous and fair dinkum guy who presents his cars in the best possible condition, they look and perform great and to back that up he gives a 12-month warranty and roadside assist. He can afford to do that because they are all high-quality cars. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris and The Good Car Garage to anyone seeking to purchase a first-class vehicle. Thanks Chris. Brian Flanagan
"Great experience". From start to finish Chris was professional, up-front and honest around vehicle sold and price flexibility. Great to see a small, customer focused business in times where the larger dealerships are missing the point with who the customer is, what they want. Well done Chris and the Good Car Garage Team! Michael Mangion St Albans
If you are looking for a vehicle, this should be your first stop. Chris is a professional in every sense of the word. He knows his product and is there to help you have the best possible experience, without the pressure. The quality of the service and vehicles they sell is A1. I would have no hesitation in recommending \'The Good Car Garage\" to anyone. Thanks Chris Felicia
Have to say it was a pleasure to buy my car from Chris at The Good car Garage. I found Chris to be professional and friendly and extremely helpful . And always returned my phone calls asap. I would recommend to anyone looking to buy a car to speak to Chris as the Service I received was impeccable something you don't always find. Thanks Chris. Tracey Marshall
After many years of driving station wagons, due to taking children to and from, I finally have a car of my own. Its a 2004 BMW 316ti 2 door hatch, I purchased this vehicle from 'The Good Car Garage' in Wickham, NSW 2293. Chris the owner of this business, made every effort to make me feel comfortable, was true to his word on the condition of the car. Thanks Chris. Katherine Clinton
Chris Fren from the good car garage at Wickham provided me with the most professional, honest and ethical service I have ever experienced from a car dealership. The immaculate Peugeot 308 I bought from Chris outranks every vehicle I have ever owned, including brand new ones! Chris stocks only quality vehicles and delivers only quality service. Not only is he aware of what 's aesthetically appealing for a buyer, but Chris has a qualified working knowledge of what's under the bonnet; a facility not all car salesman can lay claim to. Couple that with Chris' passion for cars, plus the provision of premium service to his valued clients and you achieve a recipe for success all around. Chris' desire to deliver a smooth, focused, reliable and beneficial experience to all of his clients is clear from the outset. This is followed through with a proficient, heartfelt desire in extending the finest resource to anyone in the market for a superb vehicle. Chris' outstanding and skilled assistance, in addition to his first-class stock of vehicles, raises the bar in car sales. Thank you Chris for my beautiful Peugeot and the straightforward, speedy attainment of it. My recommendation to anyone wishing to buy an excellent vehicle from a genuine, open and sincere dealer is to head directly to the good car garage at Wickham. Chris will help you achieve what will be a streamlined experience with the best outcome you could imagine - and then some. Donna Neilley.
What an exceptional experience! After chasing a particular model of car and being given the "run around" by cunning Sydney car dealers, I was losing all hope, then I came across The Good Car Garage! Chris is a great guy, friendly and welcoming, qualities that make him a phenomenal car dealer, who ACTUALLY cares. Go figure, in 2017 none the less! If your looking for a beautifully presented piece of European automotive luxury, The Good Car Garage should be your one stop shop, save yourself the anxiety and visit Chris, in my opinion "NSW's best car dealership"!! Life's too short to deal with the torture and stress other dealers will cause you, buying a car shouldn't require a prescription drug!! Professional, honest... Perfection!! Chris I can't recommend you enough, I love my new euro-beauty! I'm telling everyone!!
Hi Chris, Thank you for nice car. Was worth the drive to Newcastle for the car. Also l recommend The Good Car Garage to everyone looking for nice European Car. Is was pleasure doing business with you. Thanks Peter
Words cannot describe how pleasant, easy and professional Chris made my recent car buying experience at The Good Car Garage. From the speed of getting back to me with answers on my initial query to ensuring extended warranty and extra registration was provided as part of the negotiation, Chris is an absolute professional and will be my go-to guy for future car purchases. The car I purchased was detailed and presented in fantastic condition and even though I was familiar with this type of vehicle, Chris ensured we spent time running through the car to show me all the major features before I hit the road. I also spent time looking at a couple of other cars in the Good Car Garage and they all looked to be in the same pristine condition so I can see Chris seems to favour quality over quantity. So finally, I have bought many cars in my life but have to say this last purchase through Chris at the Good Car Garage rates as THE BEST and SIMPLEST car purchase experience EVER!
I've just arrived back in Hobart after collecting my Skoda Yeti from Chris. A most enjoyable drive, the car is just perfect and exactly as he described it on the phone. Chris has been most professional throughout the whole transaction. He is a man of his word, paying for the flight and meeting me at the airport with the car in excellent condition and with all the paperwork ready to go. He had also organised some extras I wanted and without extra cost serviced the car and put on 4 new tyres to ensure the plate changeover in Tassie went smoothly. He's good company too, though unfortunately I couldn't stay long as I had a long drive back ahead of me! I'd recommend The Good Car Garage without hesitation, the service I received was exceptional, thanks Chris. Rod Hartridge
Happy New Year . Chris just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the Audi A3 I purchased off you in November. This car is very special too me and I tell everyone where I purchased it, the easy way you handled everything for me ( tyres and pink slip) and your friendliness. Great service, great cars ! Thank you Chris Cheers Helen Allen
We would like to say a big thank you to Chris for selling us our amazing Peugeot 4008. The car is immaculate and we are very happy with our purchase. There are no pushy sales tactics, no B.S., just a genuine business owner who loves his cars and looks after you. The flexible hours helped us out with fitting in test drives around work and kids schedules. The warehouse made it easy to look at cars out of the heat too. Thanks again Chris for your help.
Thank you Chris for all your help, It has made a purchase from a long distance easy. Thankyou for being patient while I was difficult to contact in Cambodia and for following up all my questions and concerns. Being 1,500km away in Victoria can make any purchase difficult, but to purchase a vehicle unsighted from this far it was fantastic to know you are dealing with trustworthy, reliable dealers. My little Peugeot is in showroom condition as advertised and has never stopped since hitting the road from the transport company months ago it is a great little car.
Just wanted to say a great thanks for the amazing service, we couldn't be happier with the beautiful Peugeot 4008. From the first phone call you where nothing but an absolute pleasure to deal with and nothing was too difficult, it was a great relief to be treated like a person and your professional attitude was above reproach. It was definitely worth the travel and the customer service was on point, being more than happy to pick me up from the train station and drive me where I needed to go was amazing. My partner and I will definitely be buying our next vehicles from you. Thanks again mate, Ben
Thanks so much Chris, for making my daughters first experience with a car salesman such a positive one.. I very much appreciated your help with the finance and your obvious knowledge and relaxed manner. The whole process was so quick and easy. By the time we drove away, I actually felt like we were old friends. We will definitely be back. Thanks again, Rebecca Conway
Hi Chris, Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for all the help you gave us in getting the car for us, the service you give is something that we don't get often and it's a great thing to receive. The car is going great, so much we can't seem to get out of it, even though we have the other car of the same calibre. It's easy to drive around town and even better on long trips to far away distances, the next car we get, we will definitely request that you find it for us. Thanks again for all your efforts and chat to next time we're looking for another car.
Hi Chris, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say Thank you for all your help in purchasing my new car, a beautiful Volvo C70. Quite simply, we have bought many cars over these years and not one purchase has been as quick and easy as you made this one. From deciding to purchase the car it was 3 days before my beautiful new car was parked in my garage at home. Your organisation in getting the paperwork through to the finance company was beyond reproach. One phone call was all it took and on the Tuesday morning we were all set to sign the papers and drive my car home. Nothing was too much trouble for you, especially considering I called asking if we could pick up earlier, to fit in with my schedule. A lot of major players in the car market could also learn a thing or two off you in regard to after sales service as well. Your follow up call to make sure we were happy with our purchase was very much appreciated and will never be forgotten. Nothing was or is too much trouble for you, including my early morning phone call when I was in distress about my silly mistake with the car. You were extremely helpful and talked me through my "situation" and again the follow up call later that afternoon to make sure I was ok was very valued. I will certainly be recommending you to our friends and colleagues when they are considering purchasing a new car. I would be more than happy if you would like to use this letter as a testimonial to your wonderful service and will definitely look forward to doing future business with you. Thanks again, Chris for understanding and valuing our time constraints. Peter Eslick Dr Jennifer Eslick
I want to thank you most heartily Chris for your impeccable service to me in sourcing my dream car recently. You understood completely what I was looking for in a used car and you sourced it for me within 24 hours! The finance company you recommended was fantastic. Your efficient, helpful and honest advice and practical assistance on every level was invaluable. I absolutely love my \"new\" car and can highly recommend you. Thanks again Chris. Kind regards, Vivien
I just wanted to say a big thanks to Chris from the Good Car Garage! I was provided great customer service and Chris was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Chris listened to my needs on the telephone and when I arrived he provided me with the best options, making my decision quick and easy. Within one day the car was mine. Not only was it a trouble-free experience, the after service care I’ve been provided with is exceptional. I highly recommend the Good Car Garage for anyone needing a vehicle. I will continue to use their services and pass on my positive experience to others.
The quality of vehicles and service has been a first class experience. Chris's attention to detail and caring approach gave me comfort from the initial enquiry to when I drove away in my new car. A pleasure.
We came across ‘The Good Car Garage’ while looking for a family car. The website is very clear with detailed high resolution images of the cars which made it easy to find what we wanted. From the first time we rang, Chris was always available. His communication was open and honest, and he knew his vehicles inside-out. He even made the time to see us on the weekend opening his dealership just for our inspection. On inspection we discovered that Chris sources very well looked after cars at very competitive prices. His after sales service is exemplary. He clearly explained the sales contract and warranty conditions, he had a few minor repairs to the car arranged very efficiently, dealt with our financier and even arranged transport for us (We live 3 hours North of Newcastle). Chris’s communication skills kept us very well informed every step of the way until we received our car a couple days later. All of our friends and family are amazed that we got such a great car for such a good price. We are very happy, thank you Chris Fren.
