Hi All

Im sure there are people on here that have bought from RSJ before, but my question is has anyone bought from them and then had a serious issue come up during the warranty period. If so did RSJ sort it out as they say they will?

Also, how much extra do you think is an acceptable mark up to pay for the warranty you get from RSJ over a similar non RSJ car?

All comments appreciated as usual.

Very Happy

You have nothing to fear from them, one of the best out there, they even did stuff for me before and after the warranty ran out for free that’s why I just brought another one from them, you pay a bit more from them but well worth it, go have a look and chat to them they’ll put your mind at rest

I woudnt worry too much fella, they have a good reputation. Granted they are a tad more expensive than other out there but like rakerone said above - give them a chat or even better go and see them if possible.

They stand behind their cars, I bought from them last year and bent over backwards and even did some things prep'ing the car that i did not even ask for.

TBH, you get what you pay for and I will not hestitate going back Thumb

As others have said, you've got nothing to worry about with RSJ. My car had a significant amount of work done ahead of collection and even more done during the warranty period. It was in no way due to poor preparation, the issues only came to light through use and were rectified without question. I cannot recommend them enough and I would happily buy from RSJ again.

I just got a great car from them and the serive before and after was incredible...I will be returning to Darren again for sure.
I doubt their attitude and ethics change on warranty they seem straight down the line . They want to please clients....wish more dealers were like them

Bought my C2S from RSJ back in 2013, it was superbly prepared and when the water pump gave up after a couple of months they fixed it promptly with no fuss. Their warranty is back to base rather than insurance, which passes the problem over to you to deal with a warranty company. I'd much rather buy from a dealer that warranty's their cars themselves, but obviously make sure you understand RSJ's terms. Everything is covered for 3 months, but there's no point going back to them with a suspension issue after 8 months, by that time their 1 year warranty is engine and gearbox only.

Purchased my C2S from them back in November without seeing the car and to be fair they exceeded expectation. I had one minor niggle develop and that was a bubble in the mirror; quick email and the car was booked in and a new interior mirror fitted with no questions asked. They inspire confidence and I am more than happy with the service and quality which upholds there brand.

Sorry may I add I never test drove the car prior to purchase that's how confident they are they don't really do test drives.
A month later I had some suspension issue a part was seized and I felt the tracking needed re doing and a quick call car was booked in and fixed . They have their own workshop so its easy for them and cheap to fix
you have absolutely no concerns ....Ill warrant for them lol Smile

2003 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Tue Feb 20, 2018 7:26 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

The best dealer in the country in my opinion. I feel like a real family member when visiting them, a totally relaxed experience. The only thing my car threw up was a minute pin hole in one front rad after 3 months, which in truth, was probably caused by a stone (there was evidence of some heavy stone pitting on the bumper above the radiator aperture, which occurred after I drove the car), this was dealt with swiftly and at no expense to me.

All of the team are great people to deal with. As for prices, I have found them to be upper-mid, not top end. bye

I personally couldn’t buy a car without driving it first.

2007 Porsche 997 Turbo

PostPosted: Wed Feb 21, 2018 10:15 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

I spoke with them many years ago about a Turbo they had in stock which I was interested in. A no test drive policy meant I bought elsewhere.

There was also a thread over on PistonHeads quite a few years ago which didn't show RSJ in an odd light, something about swapping PSE's from one car to put on another if a potential customer wanted it.

Same for me, I went to see them last year for a 997.1 turbo. No test drive policy, so I eventually bought from RPM. A shame.

They seem to want around 5K more than the market - cannot see what can be so great about that.

They just need to find enough people that like the way they do business. They are not for me either, but sufficient people like it there.

I recall that their reasoning is that there is little to be gained from sitting in a traffic queue in Slough.

I guess a buyer has to trust that the car is perfectly prepared, or if its not, then RSJ will put it right.

I will grant you however that you need to have tried one somewhere else to establish if you want one or not!

Trust and a reputation of integrity are hard earned.

No hesitation - if something took my fancy that would be it

RSJ along with certain other companies remain benchmark dealers

2012 Porsche 991 Carrera

PostPosted: Wed Feb 21, 2018 3:38 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

RSJ have built a good reputation and loyal customer base through a proven sourcing, preparation, sales and after-sales experience focussed on a subset of the Porsche used market (997 + 991, 981, 987, no air-cooled or GT cars). It's given the RSJ brand some monetary value, hence they will price accordingly, many dealers have no value in their own brand and can't do that.

I was an RSJ customer just the once but am now a repeat customer of 911 Virgin, not due to any issues with RSJ, just preference and relationship with 911V. It's a competitive market in a competitive region that has other Porsche specialist dealers with strong brands and business models too, it's good to have a few to choose from Thumb

I went to RSJ with the intention to buy my first ever Porsche. I did months of online research trawling through thread upon thread to debate what to do.

I came away with a mixed bag of feelings.

In short I had felt a bit duped by the original advert after seeing the car in question in the flesh.

there were other cars there which were lovely. One of which we nearly shook hands on however there was an issue with the paperwork which could not be resolved.

I ended up buying from a member on here and putting the cash saved on the RSJ premium into mods.

However that being said, would I buy from RSJ? In a word yes I guess I would. I saw a car they had prepped for a customer collection and it was very well done. In fact despite not having an opportunity to drive any cars I do genuinely believe they will uphold any claims on their in house warranty. The margins on their cars allow them to do this.

If you do go make sure you go through the paperwork with a fine tooth comb the average Porsche ownership is around 2 years and so it is important to check dates, mileages, intervals and anything else if you can.

I was talking to Tom at 911V who had no 997.1 in. But I also would spend my money there and also at JZM however I think they do not deal in 997.1 anymore.

all the best
