I was looking to upgrade my 21 year old XJ40 in May 2009. While searching on the internet I spotted Roadbend Jaguar, then spotted a XJR8 Sports. I made that call and to my surprise I was speaking to a very friendly sales person and later found out that he happen to be the Boss of Roadbend.
I was very impressed with his sales presentation as he was not pushy at all when I took the XJR8 for a test drive. For an 11 year old used car, the interior and the ride smoothness was very good. The following day I decided to purchase it, I was also happy with the smooth change-over deal that Roadbend offered.
I'm from Adelaide so I had to trust that Roadbend reciprocated my trust. Graham Percival did. Constant accurate contact during the purchasing process and all information I required was timely.
My beautiful 2009 XK X150 arrived in Adelaide and I recommend anyone to sample the service and honest backup that Graham provided. An excellent experience with a reputable Company.
Thankyou Graham and Roadbend.
Hi John, Thank you so much for finding ignition switch for my 1980 XJ6, was great to see that people still care enough about customer service." Anne-Marie
Fantastic bunch of people, professional service, nothing is a problem and they are always helpful anytime. I absolutely love my Jaguar that I purchased from Graham. Very very Happy :-)
We have bought and had our vehicles serviced by Graham, Tony and John at Roadbend for many years. We are contnually amazed by their excellent service, attention to detail and professional approach.
Thanks again for the wonderful service you gave us on Saturday, I hate buying and selling cars and you made us both feel very relaxed and certainly never at any stage did we feel under pressure. We will certainly recommend your company to our friends. Chaz McVeigh
HI Graham, I would just like to say how pleased I am with the service I received from your company. We needed a front crank seal for our 1983 XJ6 and not only did you have the part in stock but it arrived today in the mail as your service man John said it would. We have just started a limousine service and the XJ6 is our shretch limo therefore the flagship of our business. Thankyou again for your excellent service. We will definately be return customers. Darryl Anderson
Graham, I would like to personally thank you for not only your professional assistance but your personal warmth and friendliness to my wife(Linda). She was not really interested in any vehicle, but what changed her mind was your manner towards her and how you presented the car.
It’s really hard for me to be up here in Kalgoorlie, and especially not physically seeing the car made it near impossible for me to try and convince Linda that this is a really nice car. Thanks mate you did an awesome job, and the way the car was presented with all the little presents made it so much more than just buying a car, it was an experience for Linda that she absolutely loves. She is totally loving the prestige and the absolute comfort of the car.
So I want to thank you personally for your extended effort in selling this car to my family.
Hi Graham, Just wanted to drop you a line to thankyou for selling me a magnificent Jag. It is like a new car and a pleasure to drive. Also I had exceptional after sales service from Tony.
Dealing with a family business that takes pride in its work shows through at all points of contact. You should be very proud of the team.Thanks again for finding me the perfect car for my needs.
Tony, I wanted to say thanks for doing such a fantastic job on my X type. I really appreciate the care and excellence that went into the service and the freshen-up. Feels, looks, and smells like new. I'm a happy customer and you've got a long term client. Pls pass my personal thanks to all on your team that contributed.
Thanks very Graham
Great service and you have a won me over. You have another Roadbend customer for life. David Drake
Just wanted to say that I am over the moon with the Jaguar and to thank you again for the wonderful and friendly service offered by Roadbend motors. I have just returned from a week touring the South West of WA – it was a dream to drive!!
Hi John I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated all of the great work you've done, nothing is too much trouble and you always come up with a solution for me. I have and will continue to recommend "Roadbend Motors" to anyone who needs great service, excellent knowledgable advise on Jaguar parts or Car sales.
I was very happy with the service you provide. I know you’re the managing director so it was great that you personally helped us out, especially considering that you had a pre-arranged appointment. I didn’t feel rushed or pressured at all and even though it is a second hand vehicle I still felt like I was being sold a new one!
Everything is going very well with the vehicle although the wife is not keen on sharing it she loves driving it so much. Will have to put some noisy mud tyres on it soon so she is less inclined to drive it!
Graham, a genuine thank you to you and your family for the outstanding way I've been treated and served over the past weeks, as you paved the way for a smooth transition from my old car to my new Jaguar!! My new car is everything i hoped for and more. As you indicated , the hand picked vehicle is reliable, efficient and exciting to drive. What more can i say Graham other than I've enjoyed the buying experience and now I'm enjoying the experience as you said i would of owning and driving a Roadbend prepared Jagaur!! Thanks guys. All the best and where i can recommend you all i will.
I have used Roadbend Jaguar for over 10 years now for all my Jaguar needs as I have ventured up the Jaguar range of cars. Today I am privilaged to own a 1972 E-Type V12 which I would only ever trust Tony Percival with. Knowledge is everything when it comes to a 40 year old car and the percival brothers have it in spades. Thanks Guys keep up the good work.
The car is beautiful and I look forward to a long and happy association with “Roadbend”.
Thank-you. After traipsing all over the globe by phone and email, I was delighted to discover that Roadbend had the rare gearbox parts I needed to get my beloved S3 manual back on the road. Thank you, both for the prompt service and for the quirk of fate that inspired someone there to order these particular bits in 6 years ago! Regards Julian Whitta
Thanks Tony, for your customer service during our purchase of our first Jaguar XT together. Glenn can't stop smiling, everytime he walks past it he gives it a buff-up.
The XK8 is going great guns. Driving it to Sydney and back recently was a real pleasure. I have never driven with 20" wheels and fat "rubber band" tyres that absorb our roads so comfortably. In fact for touring, the XK8 stands up well in comparison with my other Jaguar - one of the last 2.7L TTD S-Type Luxury. My equally immaculate S-Type rides on 18" Mercurys, and to my mind, this is the finest touring saloon that Jaguar made. Ever! But nothing, nowhere, boils the blood and turns heads like the XK8/XKR.
Given that I would never afford an XKR . . .
. . . and that this XK8 is so immaculate . . .
I feel like I have won the lottery every time I sit behind the wheel.
Thank you, Jaguar & Roadbend, for that feeling! Thank you, Graham, for honouring so brilliantly, my leap of faith in purchasing by correspondence from so far away. In return, I sing your praises where'ere I go!
I can highly recommend Graham from Roadbend Motors for his friendly, patient and very professional service. Graham went out of his way to find the right car for me. He listens to your requirements and has a thorough knowledge of the cars he deals with. All the staff at the showroom were always polite and very friendly. It was always a pleasure to visit the showroom. Thanks very much. Lesley
Graham we are very happy, she drove home yesterday afternoon smoothly and comfortably as expected. Many thanks for the smooth and professional changeover, we look forward to a long and happy relationship with Roadbend.
Graham and Tony's passion for Jaguar and customer service are second to none. The sales process was a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The service department is well run and very helpful. Far superior to my last experience of buying a jag.
I wish to express my sincere thanks for your good service on Saturday and frank advice for my car. These days, many are in business for “quick profit” and lack integrity. It is always a pleasure to deal with honest operators with emphasis on company’s credibility. Meng wong
Many thanks for the personalized attention while the quality maintenance and service was carried out on my car, and sorting out the warranty, as well as for the convenience of a quality replacement car once again. When I received my car back it drove so much quieter, smoother and with much more power. I actually appreciate and enjoy driving it so much more then before. Its amazing how much better a specialist mechanic is. Keep up the old fashion quality service.
Tony, John, Graham & Team, Lynnette & I just wanted to say a huge thank you for putting on the JCCWA evening last night. Apart from being amazed & frightened that yet another year has flown by, we always look forward to the Roadbend evening. Each year you remind us of the very best aspects of our own family dealership back in NZ. Once again, thanks very much & we hope to be able to repay your hospitality with some significant business at some time in the future.
This is our 5th Road Bend Jaguar. We always come back to Graham and the boys because we can't put a price on the value of the service. The cars are always competitively priced and presented to the highest standards but it doesn't end when you drive out of the gate. Nothing is too much trouble and their after care and servicing is 2nd to none. We would certainly recommend Road Bend to anyone wanting a fabulous Jaguar. 50 years in business says it all, congratulations to the Percival's on this fantastic milestone. Michael and Pamela Grabau
Hi Graham, I'm very happy with the car and I wanted to thank you for handling the changeover so smoothly for me and also a pleasant surprise was the tankful of petrol. Keep up the good work. Phil
Just wanted to say thanks for the great service over the years. The whole team has been great and it’s been a pleasure dealing with you and the guys!
Thanks for the last six years of association and care of "the best car of my life" you guys ( tony, your family and staff ) are genuinely good people.
Thank you for the advice and the Roadbend welcoming experience in purchasing my first Jaguar, the lovely Solent Blue XJ6 XJ40 Sovereign. I have driven the car every day, including the commute to and from work. I am adjusting my driving style and becoming accustomed/familiar with the car plus the controls. A very smooth ride, be it raining or extremely brisk outside.
Thank you for Jaguar S Type R. It’s a car that has been dreamed about for a long time and to now have one, is just brilliant. As with previous purchases, Roadbend’s delivery was beyond excellent, the car immaculate, and the atmosphere electric with excitement of taking the new toy home. Roadbends timing was impeccable, to have such a rare vehicle, just as our hunt began, was perfect timing and fortunate for us! Graham, Lisa, Tony and John, and entire team, a big “Thank you” for making my latest purchase such a wonderful pleasure and enjoyable experience.
I must say Thankyou for the test drives of so many beautiful and tempting vehicles, if the garage were only a little bigger!!
I look forward to many more cars, dreams and dealings with Roadbend in the future.
Have enjoyed 30+ years of fair & friendly service from this unique family run business. As Arnie Schwarzenegger would say, "i'll be back" :)
After my first visit with my X Type today, I came away impressed with the service and genuine interest in your vehicle. I've had the car only 3 weeks and I will be back! Cheers!
Confirming we collected the Jag today and extremely pleased with it. Totally as described and a beautiful car many thanks for your prompt and professional service. Happy to recommend you to others.
