    In the last 25 or so years, I've purchased a number of different used cars with varying degrees of satisfaction with car dealerships / salespeople.Today I purchased my first ever new car (MG5 EV) from Thompson First. The experience has been, from start to finish, comfortably the best experience I have ever had in buying a car. Scott in particular has been very helpful. Most of the transaction has taken place over email and I visited the showroom today for the first time to collect the car. I'm really very impressed and very grateful.I would recommend Thompson First without hesitation. I would also recommend using them even if you aren't particularly local because so much can be done remotely.The car itself is exceptional as well. If you're considering the move to EV motoring, MG really must be on your shortlist.

    I have used Thompson First for a couple of years now and Im very pleased with their friendly and efficient service. I collected a new MG5 on Christmas Eve. The whole process has been most enjoyable and I would thoroughly recommend both the car and Thompson First. Thank you Scott.

    Very happy with my MGZSEV purchased from Thompson First at the end of 2019 - my first electric car. (Will never go back to petrol/diesel.)

    What a great company! Ellie and Scott were great dealing with my purchase of a new MG HS, what a fantastic car by the way!I made 2 visits to the dealership and was made to feel really welcome and provided with refreshments.I've emailed Ellie in Sales on a number of occasions and received a prompt response and answer to all of my queries, thank you Although I live in Swindon and could have dealt with the local dealership, I've decided to return to Thompson First for a small repair job because of the fantastic customer service I have received to date.I would highly recommend Thompson First
  • TrassseB a year ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    I have never had such a pleasant experience purchasing a car, it was worth every mile of the 115 we traveled to get there from London.firstly Scott and then Ellie were so helpful and caring made me feel so comfortable and everything when smoothly Ellie even offers to pick us up from the train station.I strongly recommend Thompson First over all other MG dealers who I had appalling experiences with like WLMG.Thompson first especially Ellie & Scott are happy to offer outstanding costumer service.

  • Rob Duffy 8 months ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    From our first email contact till collection of our MG5 LR, Ellie (and Scott) have been timely, polite, professional and knowledgeable. Theyre not our closest dealer, but well be going back to Thompson First for servicing; I dont think I can give them a greater compliment than that.
  • Ben Rosow 9 months ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    I first came to Thompson's when I arrived in the UK Dec 2016. I test drove three models and they were very generous about giving me plenty of time in each, no sales pressure, and all questions thoroughly answered. My impression was of a family business that truly offers personal service. The fact that I did not buy from them at the time is simply due to a particular car I found elsewhere.Spring 2021: When my wife saw a late model used high end vehicle there online at agreat price (I'll call it an AAAA, and we had owned 3 of them in the States) , we jumped at the chance and negotiated a very good deal. As usual, working with Scott was very low stress. However, after driving the AAAA for about 2k miles, we concluded that the recent generation car had several aspects that we were not crazy about compared to our previous experience with the brand. It was an excellent car, but we are quite picky and we had a case of buyer's remorse.I called Scott up and explained the situation. He offered to buy it back at a more than fair price. I had not expected such good treatment from a car dealer. Conclusion: buy with confidence from Thompson First. They are a rare exception to the rule of sleaze in the retail car business. I will definitely look to Thompson's next time I am in the market for a car.-Happy in Stroud
  • Adrian Leach a year ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    I have just purchased my first electric vehicle (MG5) at Thompson First (Stroud) and cannot fault the experience in any way. Both Scott and Ellie were very easy to deal with, and not in the least "pushy" throughout the purchasing process. I have had this car for 4days now and covered over 200miles in it already. It is easy to drive, smooth and quiet (I only needed a 1mile test drive to realise that I was going to like it!). I would say it's the most comfortable car I have ever owned. I am managing to match the battery range figures quite easily, although the weather has been mild. It ticks every box for 99% of my motoring needs and I'm hoping it will be a very cost effective means of transport for some time to come. It's a good compromise of range and carrying capacity and with the 7year warranty (which includes the battery) should provide worry-free motoring for the forseeable future. I was gutted to have to sell my Renault Clio diesel after 19yrs of ownership, but this car does everything better by a large margin (provided you remain aware of the 214 mile range limitations). I love it already and I have absolutely no regrets in buying this car.
  • Kenneth Stook 11 months ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    Thank you again to the great team at Thompson First with my purchase of a MG5 EV. Ellie, Scott and Mark always put the customer first and make you feel so welcome, not just for purchasing a new car but with excellent after sales service. The car is brilliant, a very worthy replacement for my lovely DS5. Thank you again.

    Very friendly and helpful staff throughout the process of booking the service to dropping it off on the day and they also fixed my air conditioning which another MG dealer had told me was working fine when it clearly wasn't. Will definitely be using again.
  • Clare Evans a year ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    Thank you to Thompson first, especially Ellie Lees who went above and beyond to help me purchase my MG HS. As I am from Wales, she made sure all paperwork and anything else needed was all sorted for when I drove up on Saturday,to save me another trip to Gloucester to pick the car up and sign papers later in the weekGreat service all round .I am loving my knee car

  • Steve Philpott a year ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    We have been customers of Thompson First for 16 years. Our experience with them has been fantastic. The attention to detail, customer service, aftercare and making sure the cars are suitable for us are second to none. Ellie is a great asset to the company, always caring, never presumptuous and knows which cars meet our requirements. We have been Citron customers, but now proud to have an MG ZS which is a great car, and matches the comfort of the Citron Picasso, C4 Grand, DS3 and C3 Air Cross. Thompson really are First.
  • Andy WRATHBONE 7 months ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    Fantastic service from Ellie, Scott and the team at Thompsons in Stroud as always. Even the spectre of Covid lurking in the wings couldn't stop this great team from getting the job done smoothly and without a hitch. We have nothing but the highest praise for the crew at Thomson First in Stroud. That is what keeps bringing us back time after time. 10/10

  • Alex Dunn a year ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    I bought my Citroen C5 Tourer from Thompson First 3 years ago together with a very generous after-sales package of free MOTs, bulb replacements, courtesy car, car washes, etc. The car itself has been very reliable, economical, and a pleasure to drive. My annual MOTs and services have been completed on time and to a high standard. This year there was a minor hiccup in that my new MOT could not be printed because of a printer problem but I expect to receive it by post in the near future. All the staff are friendly and welcoming and the Covid 19 precautions carefully laid out.

  • Christopher Hallett a year ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    Travelled from Manchester to collect new MG3 for Mrs Joy Hallett. First class service (no pun intended) from beginning to end. Ellie personally looked after Joy during the purchase. Would highly recommend Thompson First and MG.

  • B a year ago Rated 1.0 out of 5
    January 2019 I purchased a vehicle from here and a salesman by the name of Darren Woodworm dealt with me. Purchasing my first car I was lacking knowledge, trusting the salesman but he had provided me all the wrong information, lied to me about the owners of the vehicle, lied about damage on the vehicle. Was also told my deposit is not refundable, which was lied!!

  • Ben 3 years ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    Just bought a used DS4 from these guys and couldn't be happier with the car and the service. Rang up for a test drive on a Saturday and they slotted me straight in within the hour. Car was as described and Scott was very welcoming, no pressuring at all unlike my experiences with other major dealers.I asked for time to think about it and he gave me his details. I called back later that day to put a deposit down and he walked me through what they'd do with the car, including a service and replace anything with less than 50% of life left.Handover a week later was effortless and I'd thoroughly recommend buying from them!

  • Paul Little 3 years ago Rated 3.0 out of 5
    Called to book a test drive in the morning, appointment for 3.30 that afternoon was made, get a call 45 mins before test drive saying they had sold the car to someone else. Not great customer service, why sell a car when test drive already booked? No effort to offer / source alternative vehicle again poor service, it seems to be all about the easy money which is sad from a small family run dealer.
  • Nicola Ryland a year ago Rated 5.0 out of 5

  • Alan Poole 4 years ago Rated 3.0 out of 5
    OK if you want a new car, not helpful when looking for a used vehicle. I didn't want to have a new car this time (I have had four new cars from them) gave them details of what I was looking for second hand and no response. If you have tyres changed on alloy wheels check your wheels carefully before leaving, on three occasions they have badly scratched wheels on my car's. They have repaired them to be fair but the damage should not have occurred in the first place.

  • Patrick Kinsella 3 years ago Rated 5.0 out of 5
    Absolutely brilliant service. My van is only 10 weeks old and I had an issue with the central locking and the rear door catch. It was booked in with a hire van which was ready when I arrived. The booking was for Tomorrow but I turned up this afternoon as agreed. I am a window cleaner and planned to use a mobile device for the day in the hire van, unfortunately this broke today. I explained this and asked if I could drop it in the next day and wait. They managed to fix both issues this afternoon which meant I don't have the issue of being unable to work tomorrow.We sat and waited, it was really quickly resolved and we were offered tea and coffee while waiting. Cannot praise them enough!
