UPDATE: Ideal Engines is now under the name Replacement Engines buyers beware!
I am compelled to write this Ideal Engines review out of total disgust of their behavior. Over a month ago I bought a “fully tested and reconditioned engine” for my Toyota Lucida from Ideal Engines . My reason for purchase was because the head gasket blew on the way to Sunderland and I had the car towed the rest of the way there. Whilst in the North East, I took the car to a recommended garage and had the IdealEngines.co.uk unit shipped there. After about 3 weeks of problems with the fitting of the engine, the ideal engines refurbished engine had been proven faulty. I made many phone calls to the sales agent called Adam, one of his colleagues and even the manager about getting the engine returned followed by a refund. To this day I am still waiting. I will update this ideal engines review every step of the way. Please add your own experiences in the comments.
To be continued…
As of this point of the ideal engines review they have still not even collected their faulty unit. The last time I spoke to the staff they told me to email the sales department which I did. See below the email conversation.
