Sturgess

I like the fact that Sturgess in Leicester sells ALFA ROMEO (and Volvo)

I believe they're losing AR soon

Where did you here that from? I've used Sturgess for years. Outwardly the AR dealearship appears to be quite successful.

I have only ever received shocking servicing from their sales, servicing and parts department. So i'm not surprised they are losing AR

"Shocking" as in "shockingly good"? That would of course be so un-alfaish that Marchionne would consider withdrawing their credentials...

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

And Volvo has a solid "quality" reputation, which may spill over to AR.

Btw, unless someone else has a Swedish registered Black Brera in Leicester at this moment I walked past your car last night. And very nice it looks too
