Belmont have the two Jeep franchises in Edinburgh. I've only ever dealt with Belmont Vauxhall and that was no better than dealing with Arnold Shark. However, other John Martin franchises have been better. Their Murray Volvo/Mazda (as was) franchises are very good.
I was under the impression that Western were moving from Colinton to Sighthill, former Western Toyota dealership and latterly Western Nissan used cars before it along with the Nissan new sales from Corstorphine Road and aftersales from Stenhouse Mill Lane all moved to Newbridge under the 1 roof. Supposed to be a joint Alfa/Jeep dealership because from now on all Jeep dealers will also be Alfa dealers etc.
I suppose that also leaves the Colinton Seat franchise hanging as well if theyve sold the site and nowhere for it to go either.
That means it leaves only 2 sales dealers in the whole of Scotland (Arnold Clark at Linwood whove recently opened Jeep/Alfa at their Vauxhall dealership) and Donald Mackenzie in Inverness (who have just recently took on the Jeep franchise to go with Alfa but also operate Fiat)
The rest are all service only dealers, Western Glasgow at West Street, Arnold Clark Glasgow Sprinburn Road, and Arnold Clark Edinburgh Sighthill Bankhead Drive.
Arnold Clark ran a lot of Jeep franchised dealerships, Aberdeen, Ayr, Dundee, Elgin, Glasgow, Linwood, Perth.
Of those, Only Aberdeen, Linwood and Perth still have Jeep franchises, Glasgow closed completely because it moved to Linwood and as mentioned is also Alfa anyway. Jeep was dropped at the other branches, so im thinking are the new Alfa dealers who are coming on board going to be Arnold Clark Aberdeen and Perth.
I dont think JM Group/Belmont run Jeep in Edinburgh any longer, they did have it at Sighthill alongside Kia, Mitsubishi, Suzukim Volvo and Lotus but i believe their only Jeep sight is at Wallyford, still Edinburgh region but not techincally Edinburgh itself is it? Im not sure because im a westcoaster!
But I guess the Alfa franchise model is to run it similar to Audi, only sites in major towns and cities and not having loads of dealers selling hardly any cars. So if my theory is right that would give dealers In Inverness, Aberdeen, Perth, Edinburgh and Linwood plus aftersales in Edinburgh and Glasgow too. Would imagine this would be enough to cover the Alfa sales for the whole of the country.
