Vauxhall to terminate contracts with all 326 dealerships

It looks like they're tearing up their existing contracts and only 200 dealerships will be offered new ones. I hope my local one stays as they've got a good reputation and they have been selling Vauxhalls for as long as I can remember.

Apparently this isn't just happening in the UK, they are vastly reducing the number of Opel dealerships all around Europe as well.

Yes, I read that too. I wonder if my dealer will survive. It's a small family run business and was 3 sites, now only 1 and I have to drive 20 miles to get to them now. I can't stand my local dealer. My astra will be 5 when that time comes - maybe time to sell up if I haven't already.

At least you know Vauxhall will still remain in the UK whilst over here in Australia Holden may not even survive....

Well, I'm hoping that my dealer will endure at least until tomorrow morning ;) ;) Going up there with the other half as she wants to test drive a Corsa and / or an Adam to see if they're suitable replacements for her ageing diesel Polo.

They'd also better be around for as long as it takes to re-service my car (see my other post) after they put the incorrect grade of oil in during its second service!! :o :shock: :? :x

The sales staff are very good (then I suppose they would be), but the service dept often leaves a lot to be desired :roll: :roll:

I have just had an email from my Main Dealer who tells me that they are closing, as from 11th May. However, 4 other Vauxhall Main Dealers in my area are remaining open. As far as I am aware, it isn’t ALL franchises which are finishing, it is apparently a streamlining, to provide much improved customer service through fewer franchises. We shall see!
