So, no further details on whether Sturgess is losing AR?
For the record, I have found the Leicester Volvo/AR branch quite acceptable. Previous to my 'G' I had a Volvo S40 which had 4 mechanical/electrical faults over 5 years and they were fixed without any hassle. On one fault I was looking at a 1000 pound+ repair as the car had just gone out of warranty but Sturgess contacted Volvo and got them to pay for the repair as I was a relatively low mileage driver. I've had a few minor issues fixed on my AR, again without any hassle. I've come across far worse dealers than them. Your mileage may vary.
Combining Volvo and AR in one dealerships seems a reasonably smart move as both marques tend to attract those looking for something other than German.
All the best
