Hopefully someone other than CH will take on MGR here. CH have dealerships for most car marques over here and don't have a great reputation. The branch I dealt with were good but as far as they go for other car brands :ts: Don't want to libel myself.jcn27 said:Charles Hurst Coleraine is to close down. Apparently the Belfast MGR sites are on a 2 year probation by Lookers , or is this Lookers pulling out of MGR as mentioned elsewhere.
And do what? Wave a magic wand?Bazzer_Mcbead said:Damn, is that the one with the LR dealer as well?
I thought they were a briiliant and loyal dealer service, this is getting quite scary really. Why aren't Phoenix taking this into ownership?
Realistically nobody is going to come on board until the SAIC deal is out in the open and there is a clear future. At the moment it looks a worse bet than taking on a Kia dealership but these things can change very quickly.e668ecp said:The fall in dealers is getting worrying. MGR stated that dealer numbers will rise this year - not happening. Down 10 so far with 1 new one coming on board
There have been more than one new dealer on board this year.e668ecp said:The fall in dealers is getting worrying. MGR stated that dealer numbers will rise this year - not happening. Down 10 so far with 1 new one coming on board
Still 100% better than the position you paintede668ecp said:I beg your pardon - two new dealers. One replacing Wrights in Sleaford and a new on in Southend.
The Caffyns in Tunbridge doesn't count as they only closed there last year and they have closed the Tonbridge one. Phoenix taking over Oxford doesn't count either.
No other new dealers as far as I am aware... I won't mention the closures
