The only issue was the valeting was poor of the rear seats other than that ok but i really dont think I'll be patronising suzuki when the vitara is ready for changing as this car is underpowered and ribbish in snow.

Not happy my key fob for central locking stopped working fitted new battery told it would need reprogramming at a cost of £45 the car is less than 3 years old surely this would be covered under warranty.

Hi, We are sorry to see that on this occasion you have only been able to leave us a 3 star review. Having looked into this we believe the confusion may have come about during a conversation prior to the work where our service advisor made you aware that there could be a possible charge depending on the outcome of the investigation into the fault you reported. We're glad to say this wasn't the case and and can confirm that we do have your vehicle booked in to have the work carried out free of charge under warranty.

My motorcycle had its first service yesterday at the Keighley branch. The staff in the workshop were great. I did not buy my new m/c at Colin Appleyard in Keighley but the first service was £50 more expensive than were I purchased the m/c from. So not very impressed.

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us and we're very pleased to hear how great you found the workshop team to be. We have spoken with our motorcycle branch in relation to the pricing of the service that you received on your motorcycle and they did advise that you did received a quotation before any works commenced. Our pricing is in line with the manufactures recommendations and we do our very best to be as competitive as we can. Thanks once again for sharing your thoughts and we do hope we can be of service to you again in the future.

Sorry to say customer service was not very good ,I had to phone several times before someone would phone back or even leave a message.
I only wanted a new key and this took three weeks.
At the end the date as promised.

Hi Eulon, Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback and apologies that on this occasion we fell short of our usual high standard. Having spoke with Barrie at our Ashton dealership he has confirmed that the key was unfortunately on back order and due to a breakdown in communication you were not advised of this, hence the delay in getting your new key. Apologies once again Eulon, we have taken your comments onboard and thanks very much for bringing this to our attention.

Unfortunately my MOT was booked in for tomorrow 1st of July, which has been booked in for a good few weeks, but when I phoned last week to arrange the pick up which was talked about, you guest it, they don’t have enough staff & I am to far away, I was also promised to get a warranty check before the MOT, oh we won’t have time to do this ? Wonder what it means by we look after our customers

The customer service was good. I was unhappy with the delivery my car was 7 days late due to manager error this left me without a car. When I asked for a courtesy car in replacement I never got one leaving me to hire for a week unexpectedly.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Ashton dealership. We are sorry to hear about the delays with the delivery of your vehicle which on investigation do appear to have been down to clerical errors for which we can only apologise. From discussing your comments with the branch it would seem there may have been some confusion regarding the loan of a vehicle as the sales team were under the impression you did have alternative transport & were not aware this was a hired vehicle. In these circumstances we would wherever possible provide a courtesy car for use so again apologise for the confusion and inconvenience this may have caused. Should you wish to discuss this any further please contact Simon Ambler, the manager of our Ashton dealership, on 0161 330 5148.

I am now on my 6th Suziki car from Colin Appleyard Ashton-Under-Lyne.
Over eight years I have always received excellent customer service which is second to none and also a fair trading price against a new vehicle.
Originally dealt with Brian who left then Dean Harrison took over both excellent people to deal with. Their knowledge and expertise helped in deciding which car to choose.
Moved from Ashton Under Lyne to Cleveleys nearly three years ago and
and still go back to Colin Appleyard Ashton that is how good they are.

Purchasing vehicle was professionally done. Had to wait a day for finance to be confirmed then was a few more days wait to pick up the car. Was excited to wake up and get my car but on the day I was told I couldn't due to a problem with getting road tax. No apology given the next day when I eventually picked the car up. I then had a problem with the infotainment system voice recognition which was not fixed the first time. Over a week later the car was taken back and did get fixed. I was offered a pick up and courtesy car on this occasion which was great but overall I had been inconvenienced on three occasions.

Bought a secondhand Qashqai from the Nissan dealership in keighley a couple of months ago, found an issue with the windscreen shortly after picking the car up, the manager of the dealership and the service manager had the issue fully resolved, without any fuss or quibbling. Excellent service from Wayne the sales person also. The cars been brilliant, would recommend this dealership to anyone.

Always had good service from this company, but this time the service is below its normal standard. Had a text message from the Keighley office advising me that my car was scheduled to be serviced so I phoned them and I was told that the person was on the phone and they would call me back. They did not call me back so later the next day I contacted the Bradford branch who was unable to deal with my request because no one was answering the phone and they would call me back. I would always give this company a 5 stars but this time I have only given 3 stars.

I booked my SX4 in for a service at Colin Appleyard Huddersfield. The service itself was fine and I have no issues with it. I was offered a courtesy car for the day which I accepted. At no time was I EVER informed that there would be a cost involved. On checking my receipt when I returned home I was extremely unhappy to discover I had been charged £35.10 for "Loan Vehicle Insurance". One very unhappy customer
(Huddersfield) - Posted 2 years ago
Hi Jane, Thank you for your feedback, having spoken with the service department at Huddersfield they have told me that the charge of £35.10 was for synthetic engine oil and a charge of £8.33 + VAT had been made to cover the insurance cost of the loan vehicle, please accept our sincere apologies that this cost had not been previously mentioned to you and as this was an error on our behalf we have now reimbursed you.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience you suffered which was due to an administration error on our part. Having spoken to Matthew who looked after you, he has confirmed that we arranged delivery of the car to you and as a token of our appreciation for your understanding provided a full tank of fuel. We hope that the car is to your satisfaction and if we can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

I feel cheated by the p/x on my yr rd side assistance ...when I've always had three yrs on buying new Nissan's....sorry about this revue but I assume you want the truth so there it is....
(Ashton-under-Lyne) - Posted 2 years ago
Hi Nigel. We're sorry to hear your disappointment at the roadside assistance however as long as you return to an authorised Suzuki garage for your service, this can be extended up to the car being 15 years old! Your Suzuki does also come with a full 3 year manufacturer warranty. Apologies if this wasn't explained to you. Further details can be found at

Following excellent sales experience felt let down by poor communication with service department when we booked car in for some investigation. Car was not ready when we were told it was leading to an unnecessary delay. The service manager accepted and apologised but this is not first time I've had problems which haven't been representative of the normal levels of excellent service and customer care we have come to expect and receive at the branch. I am taking manager to his word and genuinely hope that these were isolated incidents.

Hi Phil,

We’d like to apologise again for the unusually low level of service you received. I believe you’ve already spoken with our service manager who has given you reassurances that this will not happen again as we greatly value your custom. Thank you for your understanding and for bringing this to our attention. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
