More doors close on MG Rover

03 June 2005

The doors have closed on four more MG Rover dealerships, while others have switched their allegiance to new brands.

Warranties will be honoured at any Pendragon outlet

The doors have closed on four more MG Rover dealerships, while others have switched their allegiance to new brands.

The Pendragon group is closing dealerships in Luton, Chelmsford, Narborough (Leicestershire) and Aston (West Midlands).

Pendragon boss Trevor Finn told Whatcar.com that showrooms in Leeds and Harrogate will switch to Hyundai, while Kia will be adopted at the outlet in Hall Green (West Midlands). All 12 remaining MG Rover dealerships in the group will eventually change brands.

Finn said that any customer who has bought an MG Rover from any Pendragon outlet in the last 12 months will have their warranty honoured at the group’s dealerships.

Although owners might have lost the protection of new-car MG Rover warranties, they can still complain about faults on cars under the Sale of Goods Act. In the first six months of ownership, the onus is on the dealer to prove that the faults were not present when the car was sold.

  • Finn said Pendragon was happy with the offer made by Capital Bank for its existing stocks of unsold MG Rovers. Capital Bank is offering unsold cars to dealers at discount prices and with two years of warranty.
