I've got all the gubbins about the emissions based upgrade to my 2.0tdi Exeo. I'm considering getting it done, but according to the Seat website there are now only 2 seat dealers in Gtr Manchester - both owned by Lookers. The other is in Preston owned by Arnold Clark.

Based on my previous dealings there are no circumstances under which I would use these dealerships. Can anyone recommend an alternative dealer reachable from Bury/Bolton areas?

Either way it looks like Seat has abandoned its customers in Gtr Manchester area and as a result this will be the last Seat I ever own.

I use rm Fisher in Galgate, never had any issues with them and they have always sorted me out where Preston had let me down.
If that's too far, the one in Blackpool is also recommended from others

In my opinion R.M. Fisher of Galgate Lancaster gives first class attention to all customer needs.
Agree, they are miles apart from Johnsons Seat Preston IMO (my other local dealer)

Went to RM Fisher back in October for some warrarty work on my 1 month old Cupra. Even though it was something most people would think was petty they carried out the work with no fuss and to a very high standard.

I will be taking my car there for a service in September.

Always used Perrys Seat in Blackburn for servicing on my Exeo and would recommend them.
Tony the service Manager is always friendly and helpful.

So Seat Manchester is one to avoid then I take it?
I phoned my nearest dealership. Seat Manchester to view a Seat Arona. I tried to phone and web from , got no response. New rules during Coronavirus means I can’t just turn up to dealership without an appointment.

I was prepared to travel over the hills and drove to VW in Doncaster. ( since I’m from Yorkshire ) Just to get the Seat Arona I wanted, they allowed me to view and test drive, so was happy, did the part exchange and bought it.

I went to Seat Manchester (Lookers) when I wanted to buy and knew exactly what I wanted. Already seen a deal at another Seat dealer (round trip of about 50 miles) but Lookers is only 1.5 miles from home so thought I'd give them a chance. Conversation went along the lines of...So, you're looking for a new FR which costs £**,*** (almost full up money!), this is the value of your part ex £*,*** then he shuts up. Acting stupid I said "so I need to find the difference between the two amounts?". His response "Yep, that's about it". I left and bought from the other dealer.
Lookers strapline = Customers for life...not in my case.
