"Went looking for a new car, walked onto the Hartwell Ford site in Kidlington, Richard Brewer came out to ask what we were looking for and showed us these cars. We went on to look at the other garages on Langford Lane, Eden were good and spoke to us, Nissan very poor never even spoke to us. We decided on a Ford Kuga and rang Richard for a test drive and then did the deal. He deserved the deal as he wanted to speak to us and went through all the things in the car so we knew what it all did, well done Richard and you never even flinched when my son asked you some very strange questions involving what you could get in the back of the car!​" - Margaret Thompson, 5/5 Star Rating

"Just bought a brand new Ford Fiesta 1L turbo ST-Line from Andy Wood. Brilliant service Andy was a star couldn’t ask for a better sales man. Helped me with everything and made sure everything was sorted for me quickly and professionally. Really happy with the car.​" - Dylan Goodall, 5/5 Star Rating 

"Excellent service. We were well looked after - car was in for a tyre pressure monitor sensor fault, the checks revealed another sensor broken too. I would recommend Hartwell because they did a great jobs quickly and efficiently AND cleaned the car too. Well done!!​" - John McHugh, 5/5 Star Rating

"Recently purchased a Ford Fiesta from this dealership and I would 100% recommend this dealership to anybody looking to purchase a car, in particular Robert Cross was a brilliant sales man who was able to cater for my needs and queries in a quick and easy manor. If your looking at a new purchase then I would say Hartwell Banbury are the guys to go to.​" - Google User, 5/5 Star Rating

"I recently purchased a second hand one year old Ford Focus from this dealer. The experience from initial enquiry to purchase was pleasant, professional and expediently handled. As a lifelong Ford driver, I am pleased to have a local dealer that I can trust not only to supply quality, value for money vehicles but also service and maintain them and care for me as a customer. Long may it continue." - Mark Taylor, 5/5 Star Rating

"Had my SEAT serviced today. Got taken into town where I enjoyed lunch out and a look round the shops and then collected by the lovely driver two hours later when my car was ready. It was valeted upon my return as well which I wasn’t expecting. All in all a very high level of customer service given to me today. Thank you all." - Helen Thatcher, 5/5 Star Rating
