Here I am again, I bought a Mitsubishi Shogun short wheel drive from David, unseen. I was so thrilled with the condition of the vehicle and way that it drove, I was back onto David asking whether or not he could source me a Toyota Landcruiser 100 Series on a 2004/05 plate out of the auctions in Japan. This to his credit, he managed to do, although it was not an easy task. However, I was kept informed of each vehicle he looked at. However, I am pleased to say that my Landcruiser has arrived and I have got it at the farm. I'm absolutely astounded at the condition of the vehicle. I know they look after them in Japan and have vigorous testing and no salt on the roads but there is no rust on the vehicle, I've been underneath it, none! It's just in mind-blowing great condition. As usual, great service, I can't recommend David at Goodmayes Motors enough!

Martin Lyons

Made trip down from yorkshire and was pleasantly surprised The car was in amazing condition and as described 100%. As were all other vehicles on site... no sales patter or pressure selling was left alone to view ..Sale concluded and Full marks to this dealer for quality and service

As I live on a Scottish island, and it was a long and expensive journey to view the car I was interested in, I took a chance of buying unseen based on the company's reputation. I could not have been more pleased with the outcome. David sent numerous photos and discussed all aspects on the phone and never ONCE tried to put on any sales pressure. He also put me on to an excellent Scottish haulage company Callum Plank, who were excellent to deal with as well. They collected the car and delivered it to the Aberdeen Ferry Terminal at a very reasonable cost. When the car was being collected David even sent photos of it being loaded on to the transporter! The car purchased is a 2001 Lexus/Toyota Soarer V8 which was in even better condition than I could have hoped for, better than David's description, and with brand new tyres fitted. Everyone who has seen the it are amazed at the condition she is in for a 19 year old car, even totally rust free and still like new underneath. Secondhand Japanese cars would appear to be a better buy than similar aged cars in this country, as the dry climate combined with the fact they do not salt the roads mean cars are in far better condition. Thank you to David and team, watching your website looking for my next purchase.

I had been searching the internet for a Nissan Cube and came across Goodmayes in Thurrock. On my visit they had several to choice from and having made my choice am now driving this quirky car. I must say that they made the whole purchase process very easy and stress free. The took car of all of the paper work concerned and even changed the speedo and odometer to miles from kilometres! I would throughly recommend this company to anyone wanting to purchase an import. Great service! Thanks........

John Gill

Collected a 2004 Mitsubishi Pajero Exceed ll from David yesterday. Absolutely stunned with the condition of the vehicle. David had described it as in ‘good condition’ but it is way better than that. Took it to my local garage today for them to check everything.All good and NO rust whatsoever ! This is my second Japanese import vehicle and I have been very pleased with both. Would highly recommend David and the Goodmayes Motors Company.


Just thought we would drop you a line to say how delighted we are with the Alphard. Lovely and smooth and effortless to drive. Thank you for making the whole experience stress free and professional. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services.


Delighted with the first class preparation and quality of our 2003 Nissan Cube. The only defects were a scrubbed headlining and a tiny hole in middle arm rest. However, David has promised to replace the arm rest when we are next passing. Having bought numerous second hand cars over the years - and traveled many 100s of Miles only to be bitterly disappointed - it was a refreshing change to have a selection of immaculate Cubes for consideration. In fact, it was hard to pick just one! Thoroughly recommended and we shall definitely return again for another car soon. Thank you, David, and your team for stunning Cube Rider.


I left feedback after I have bought a car 4 years ago and it's about time I leave a quick update. Every time I read those reviews I can't help thinking "well, it's all good you had a smiling customer service but what happens next?" So here we are. Near 4 years later and I passed another MOT without advisories and with compliments to "unexpectedly good condition" of my Pajero. One thing I can say - a big, huge "Thank you!". And when I save up a bit of cash for a weekend Skyline this time you are sure to hear from me again. Cheers!

Gavin Smith

We bought a 2006 Honda Stepwagon and it has been utterly superb!! Immaculate condition inside and out, My wife really loves, we weren't sure a import was right for us But Goodmayes Motors helped us with our decision and the car is perfect. Highly recommended.

Matt Duran

Me and my partner recently bought our second toyota ipsum from dave and his son at goodmayes. My father has also bought two cars from them. I can honestly say they are pleasure to deal with. Trustworthy, honest, reliable and full of knowledge. Allow you to browse and take your time and do not try to "sell" anything to you. Also both times offered us a more then a fair and honest price for our part exchange cars. I could not reccomend them more. Both cars we have had our a dream and are basically brand new. Thank you dave and the goodmayes staff once again.

Pheobe Cobbald

A big thank you to David and his team. I have just purchased my second car from Goodmayes Motors, a Toyota Estima and I could not behappier. The car is like new, as was my Nissan Elgrand I purchased seven years ago. I would say to anyone who is looking to purchase a Japanese import vehicle to go and have a look at what they have on offer. I would be confident in recommending them to anyone. THANKS AGAIN....

David Macpherson

We bought our Toyota Alphard from Goodmayes in November 2016, we travelled down from the Orkney Islands to buy it and David’s son met us off the train. David, his wife and son, were all very helpful and friendly. The stock we were shown was impressive and my husband immediately fell in love with Alphard (our car) She is a 2002 car and she is immaculate. We have had many folk admiring her, including our local garage staff, and nobody can believe she is fifteen years old, they all think she is almost brand new.

Trevor Watson

I wanted to write to say how pleased I am with the Alphard and how well I thought she had been prepared pre-collection. My village garage eventually agreed to do the wax oil so I asked them to just give her a once over to ensure there wasn’t anything I might need to watch out for and they could find nothing that warranted attention...everything had been done...!
So many thanks for supplying such a well prepared vehicle....
The conversion to motorhome is booked for August and although I have other cars I am using the Alphard quite a bit, as she is such a pleasure to drive...

Martin Robbins

Thank you for what is a really great car and a pleasure to drive. I smile from ear to ear each time I drive it. I love the way it looks and drives. Thank you for a good deal and going the extra mile regarding my disabilities. I look forward to dealing with you again in the future.

Peter Copleston

Just bought my 6th vehicle from these guys, always a pleasure to work with David and his team, and the professionals in the motor trade he knows, be it leather seat finishers or top audio specialists. Another great car purchased, many thanks.

Kevin Mancey

Brought a Toyota Alphard from Goodmayes a few weeks ago. Best move ever impressed with the honesty and quality of the vehicles. The car runs like a dream. I would like to thank the boss and his staff for all there help no pressure and honest a rare thing nowadays. Will go back again when I want another vehicle.

Tony Poulter

I bought my Toyota Estima the end February had it nearly 3 months now and very pleased with it. Everybody that sees it can’t believe how good condition it is. The introduction to the car was first class with David’s son and while I was in the office doing the paperwork the team were outside making sure the car was in full working order, full marks to David and the team at Goodmayes Motors for first class treatment and service, many thanks.

Daryl Matthews

I wanted to find the best most recent example Mitsubishi Delica to replace my old one. After a short discussion with David he showed me photos of one he’d just sourced and on its way from japan, it looked good so I we agreed on a very competitive deal and I put a returnable deposit down. A few weeks later the car arrived and, well, I can honestly say that straight off the ship it was pretty much immaculate.

John Richardson

I cannot rate Goodmayes Motors highly enough they have given excellent service from start to finish. Even though I cancelled a visit at short notice they were most understanding and helpful. The Alphard that I purchased is an excellent example for a 2002 model. Only 25,000 miles and everything like new. A new set of tyres, which were not expected, and so many extras on the vehicle. David and Max were very happy to let me browse and take my time. No pressure and plenty of advice when you asked for it. Japanese car insurers were recommended when my own insurers couldn’t even find the model.

Lynn Skinner

Recently became the proud owners of a mint Honda CR-V mk2 with only 20,000 miles on the clock. It’s like a brand new car. From start to finish, which included a 600+ delivery journey David & his staff handled everything professionally & courteously. We were kept informed of progress throughout & at no time felt concerned of a long distance purchase. We will certainly be back in contact for our next purchase & would highly recommend Goodmayes motors as truly genuine people. Thank you.

Lord Micheal G Redshaw of Airedale

It’s rare to find civilised vehicle dealers these days - the car (Nissan Elgrand) was better than described, it arrived promptly and the whole process was painless. I’m so happy with the vehicle I want to trade it back in and buy a better one in a month or so! A pleasure doing business with you Sir.

Jim Mcguigan

Good people good cars I am on my second Elgrand. Hope you’re well David.

Andy Mardon

Had my Delica for a few months, just got back from France on a fishing trip. What a fantastic vehicle, I could not be happier with it. W Rag Chamonix model drives like new looks like new. These guys sell quality vehicles, I never leave feedback as a rule but having been driving it with a smile on my face, I felt I had to thank you.

Ted Galbraith

Bought a beautiful Mazda Bongo a few weeks ago. What great service and customer care. All the paperwork and transfer of personal plate was all done for me. The preparation of the vehicle was excellent and there was no sale pressure just good old-fashioned quality service. Thanks guys, highly recommended!

John Walker

Bought a Nissan Elgrand from David and am very happy with the motor and the service from Goodmayes Motors. Thank you. John

Raymond Mitchell

Purchased a Mitsubishi Pajero 3.5 GDi last week, Great car fantastic condition more than I expected for the price paid, Great service, great company, would recommend to all, thanks to all at Goodmayes.

Lynn Anderson(Posted On Facebook)

Lucky enough to buy a Nissan Elgrand a month ago. Great car in fantastic condition, like new, only done 22,000 miles. All the staff made the buying process so pleasant and easy and their after sales support is second to none. Couldn’t be happier. Thank you.

Dimitri French

Very happy with our 7 seat Pajero - top condition, got more than expected. More importantly friendly advice and excellent communication. For a reliable, clean and comfy 7 seater look no further. Many thanks to David and the team - really helped me out. All the best and keep up your good work. Dimitri

John King

I recently bought a Toyota bB from Goodmayes Motors. What a great car it is! Superb condition Very nicely presented and puts a smile on my face every time I drive it.

Catrina Stevens(Posted On Facebook)

Came up today spent 20 mins looking round all the cars in showroom and all in fantastic condition we finally decided which was right for us and bought a 2002 Toyota Estima off these guys and well what can I say excellent service throughout, they sure know there stuff. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a decent 7-8 seater car they in a class of their own... Thanks so much Goodmayes we are very happy with our purchase and who knows when time for upgrade we know where to come!!

Mike Osland

Found a nice genuine BMW 318i, Very low miles 8,300, Like New, Drives Great, Found David very laid back, No pushing, Leaves you to look, Also would like to say found Max, David’s son a nice guy, Took me for a test drive, Explained everything, Very polite. I would Highly Recommend Goodmayes cars to everyone.

Dave Collinson

Second car I have bought from Goodmayes. David sourced me a 2004 2.7 petrol Toyota Hilux Surf, which is not the routine request, excellent high spec car in great order. . He is very helpful and full of advice. Collection was easy, even though just before Christmas. High quality service, I would recommend Goodmayes to any one and also by the way the 2.7 Hilux Surf is well worth a look at. Vastly superior to the old Surf.

Geoff Jones

I found Goodmayes via Autotrader to whom I owe a debt of gratitude. Its unfortunate I’m am not years younger and needing to buy or replace cars as I have done over the years. Finding a trader who is patiently in both telling the truth easily and really offering such value is as rare as the stock he sells. With best regards to Goodmayes.

Kevin Steele

David Critchlow is not a car dealer, he is a genuine human being. This man will bend over backwards to make his customers happy, I have dealt with some complete .......... In my experience you could not find better, thanks David.

Nino Wilson

Fantastic car, fantastic service!! I had been looking for a very rare Toyota Bb for what seemed like ages. I finally found Goodmayes motors and saw that they had one for sale. I wasn’t quick enough to snap it up and it was subsequently sold. I emailed David at Goodmayes and asked if he could possibly source another one (I thought I had no chance as they’re so rare!) A few weeks later David emailed me saying that he had found a really good example of one. I explained I was definitely interested and a few weeks after that I left a deposit on the vehicle.

Ray Hill

My recently bought vehicle is not the first from David at Goodmayes Motors, what strikes me is that David is a rarity in the motor trade, A true Gentleman, He is good to do business with, from Ray Hill

Barry Crowe-Haylett

Over the last 10 years I have purchased from Goodmayes Motor Sales Ltd 4 Toyotas 2 Nissans, 1 Honda and 1 Mitsubishi and in the process part exchanged these back with Dave. During this time I have only had 2 problems with the vehicles and each was resolved hassle free and with excellent service by Dave and his team.

Steve Watts

I just want everyone who reads this to know that I would like to tell everyone looking for an import to come and see David at Goodmayes this is my third purchase from Goodmayes always helpful cant fault the service please come and see them you wont be disappointed.

Steven Hart

Great car—Great Value! This is my 3rd Stagea and, by far, the best I’ve had, a great run home and now look forward to the LPG Conversion. I was well looked after by David and the team and will certainly return when next looking for a Car Many Thanks

Norman and Jeanette Richardson - Durham City

We took delivery of a Pajero SWB on 26 March bought on the strength of a photograph. My wife’s first reaction on seeing it was ‘wow’. She wasn’t wrong, the vehicle was exactly as described on David’s website.

Dave Winterborne

We bought the Pajero back in February 2012, a slight hiccups with a duff battery a week later, Dave sorted it straight away, electrical test and fitted a new battery. A superb vehicle, brilliant service and advice. I have recommended Goodmayes Motors to anybody who listens. We will be going back there when we want to change vehicles in the future, the best Japanese imports by far, we will never bother with a brand new car again. Highly recommended.

Ken Williams

I ordered a Nissan Elgrand after seeing it on the website. I flew to Essex to collect it, it was exactly as described only better. They had serviced it, cleaned it, taxed it, ready to roll. Igot in and drove2500 miles across 7 countries to Turkey in 5days without the car missing a beat, no problems at all, you could not ask for a better service or a more reliable car to buy. Thanks Goodmayes

Alan Wilcher

The very best place for good used imports!

Peter Arter

I would highly recommend Goodmayes I bought rs4 Stagea from them a year ago
it is perfect in every way, when I am out in it people look at it, if you want hassle free car buying go to Goodmayes they are helpful and professional well done

Martin Henneberry

I was looking for a Daimler Double Six on the Car and Classic website and saw this beautiful low mileage one at a very fair price at Goodmayes Motor sales. The fact that it was rust and rot free, confirmed by a qualified Automotive Engineer, and ran quite beautifully, made my mind up. Dealing with David was a pleasant and straightforward experience and I would definitely recommend him.


HI, we buy the Shadow 2years ago. I drove the car on my own to Germany without one problem! The car is now driven 8KM without a problem, many Thanks to you and your realistic descriptions!! Bruno from Germany

Paul Gage (Shoeburyness)

I bought a Chevrolet Camaro from David in the spring of 2009 and as it has proved one of my best car purchases I had no hesitation in returning 2 years later to collect a Mitsubishi FTO for my wife. When we eventually decide to replace either car in the future our first port of call will be Goodmayes Motor Sales.

Lee Pearson

Quality Vehicle. I bought a Mazda bongo early this year
and I am still over the moon with the motor. Been to Hartlepool and all over.
The best buy so far I would recommend David to anyone.

Dawn Smith

Yet again David has come up trumps. This is the third time I have purchased vehicles from Goodmayes Motors (this is my choice) and the service and helpfulness of David and his team has been second to none. Nothing is too much trouble and their knowledge of all Japanese imports is great. I would always recommend anyone who is thinking of buying an import to visit Goodmayes Motors before trying anyone else. Thank you David.


I can’t thank you enough for all you did in supplying the Z. You responded to my request for more photos, you let us take it on a test drive, you checked out the battery and fitted a new one, you gave us a fair price on the trade in, you went and did the all paperwork and we drove all the way home happily in the new zed. Thank you. It’s performing so very well and we drove home happy. On the Saturday we went up the coast with the roof off and it was glorious. When I’m ready for my next z I’ll be in touch. Thanks again Tony

John Collins

Thanks for selling me the car its excellent drives like a dream really pleased with it ill be telling all my friends and family Goodmayes is the place to go to buy a jap import not like the other jap import in Basingstoke they were terrible thanks chaps

Mark Brown

Hi David, I just wanted to leave some comments and tell you again how happy I am with my new car and the service that you provided. The car (Nissan Skyline 350GT) was exactly how it was detailed on your website and all the information was correct and very precise. In particular I would like to thank you for taking the time to respond to all my questions and queries prior to making the 450mile around trip to collect the car!

Dany Van Hoof (Belgium)

We recently bought our dream car, a top - of - the - bill Bentley. David helped us and - even without viewing the car - the deal was perfect. Very good service, kind and very honest advice, reliability... perfect service throughout!
Thank you David.

Frank Main Scotland/Spain

Hi David,
Now that we have had the Honda for a few weeks I thought I would let you know that it has lived up to all our expectations and you may wish to use the attached testimonial.
Many thanks and kindest regards
Frank Main

Lara Selvagi, Malta

From my experience whilst buying my car, Goodmayes Motors Sales is a trustworthy company that puts the customer first.
The car I bought is in excellent condition and priced well. The deal was done professionally and without delays.
I would definitely recommend this company to others who like me would like to purchase from overseas. You can rest assured that David is honest and will keep his promises!

Kevin Barrance

Extremely pleased with the Honda Fit we have bought. Despite it being a 02 Reg it is in pristine condition and looks and feels like a new car. I will certainly buy another car from Goodmayes Motors again.

Chris Dudney

I have purchased too many second hand cars to remember them all but the 1993 Toyota Townace Super Extra I purchased from Goodmayes Motors a year ago has certainly proved the best. It really does look like a new car, feels like one and drives like one, I will certainly be back for another. The M.O.T. Testers comment when it was tested in Nov.2007 was, ‘where has this car been for the last 14 years - it’s just like new’. Needless to say it sailed through.

Andrew Smyth

I now have my Skyline for one year and I still grin every time I drive it. It never ceases to turn heads everywhere I go. The treatment we got from Goodmayes was second to none. The car was immaculately prepared, exactly as described in perfect condition. No hesitation in buying again.

Linda Tallent

Just to say thank you for the 1st class service and the great car! I will be recommending your company to family & friends. Will buy from you again in the future!
An honest Trader! All the very best to you David! Thank you again

Pat Stoneham

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you very much for an excellent service and beautiful car. I will definitely be recommending your company to family and friends. It was a most pleasant buying experience from a friendly, helpful and honest trader! Will buy from you again in the future. Thanks for restoring my faith in the car trade. There is at least one good dealer out there who I would trust to buy from again! All the very best to you.

Paul Edalere

My Mum was in the market for sporty, reliable car which represented good value. Having been in touch with David previously, I took her down to view some cars. David offered brilliant product knowledge, and excellent service both pre and post purchase. She is extremely happy with her vehicle. I’m in the market for a Skyline in two months and will not look any further than Goodmayes...TOP MARKS!

Michael Forde

My family have purchased two vehicles from Goodmayes Motors in the past 6 months, a Granvia and a Figaro. I contacted David Critchlow via e-mail when he was in Japan and as a result of my request he sourced a low mileage (verified) vehicle in near pristine condition. All relevant documents were provided and the quality of service was excellent. I had some unsatisfactory experiences with other so called Japanese import specialists, Goodmayes Motors is in a league above these “Arthur Daley” operatives.


Absolutely first class professional service. Over the last 3 years I have purchased 3 High performance sports cars and they were all spot on with very high standards and specs. Once again without a doubt David is the person and Goodmayes is the garage for my next High performance car. Best wishes. B OZCAN

Brian Emery

Had the Pajero Eighteen months now apart from a service has not missed a beat this includes towing my twenty three foot caravan extensively around Europe. Thoroughly recommended

Les Thomson

I have never been so pleased with a car. Dealing with David from around 550 miles North was painless and pleasant. The car was (and is) immaculate and has performed flawlessly. It has been used as a Limo, taken Off Road on serious Scottish mountains that Land Rovers fear, and washes up beautifully. It does what it says on the tin! Best deal I ever did and a very nice Family too! Thank You David!

Mick Williams

If you want quality cars with no hassle I would have no hesitation in recommending this Company. I have over the last five years purchased five cars from Goodmayes Motor Sales Ltd (Changes of my own choice and requirement) and I have to say that in every instance the vehicles and service have been 1st class. I could quite happily ask David Critchlow to find me a car knowing that it will be first class when it arrives. The cars are prepared to the highest standard, if you want quality cars with no hassle I would have no hesitation in recommending this Company.
