Westway Kidlington change of ownership - 12 Apr 16

Recommended Posts

Nissan Oxford (as they are called, but they are in fact in Kidlington) are undergoing a change of ownership today.

They may still be called Westway when they fully reopen on 14th, or they may not. Other details such as whether they are going to still be a GT-R approved retailer are unknown.

 

(Source - service dept, Westway Nissan).

 

I had cause to call them today as Mrs Fred's 6 month old Juke has got the Malfunction Indicator light on (it's the scary Amber picture of an engine block) as well as another, more friendly, green warning for the Stop/Start function (or malfunction in this case).

 

Jeff.

Beg pardon, it was a Nismo ordered by 350zcwm on Sunday from Westway. I hope it goes smoothly for him.

I'm sure fulfilment of orders will be fine as Westway is/was owned by NMGB. I presume the new Dealer Franchise holder will be an "independent" Nissan Dealership (like so many others).

 

However I do hope its not the same lot as Reading - only car dealer I've come across where all their phone numbers are 0870 premium rate ones, even to do sales enquiries! "Hello, I'd like to enquire about buying a car" "Yes sir, just pay a pound a minute and I'll deal with your enquiry"....

I'm sure you'll be fine mate, but it's definitely worth checking :)

 

When is the NISMO due? I was just wondering which car will be at Duxford...

By way of an update, their phone now just rings (10 am today) and there is no menu. It just rings. I have booked into Swindon to get the Juke fixed. I don't like engine warning lights.

Fingers crossed you have the new car for Duxford but to be honest I would quite like to see the 350Z one last time :)

I can confirm that what was WestWay Nissan, Kidlington, Oxford has become MotorLine. They phoned me yesterday to ask if wanted a new 370 yet. I replied that it was a little early to change.

 

:whistle:

Have just taken the Juke back to Motorline, Kidlington, as the sunroof screen would not retract on first use. Apart from the fact that their central booking agency had booked me into the Crawley, Sussex, branch (I'm in West Oxford) it was as quick as you like. Straight into the service bay at 9.15; need to order parts under warranty; will call you when we will do the job for free. Great, considering I was supposed to be in Surrey.

 

I had spent the weekend, in between heavy rain showers, getting the Lake District holiday removed from the car - about one and a half day's work - finished with an immaculate Collinite sealant (thanks LESmo). I'm talking door shuts, boot shuts, the works! And it was totally cleaned inside, including all of the rubber seals.

 

Then the nice lady said that the car would be ready once they had washed and vacuumed it. AARGH!!

 

It came back to us with water marks on the paintwork and the wheels. That's why I don't let other people touch our cars! No damage done. The marks are sitting on a great layer of Collinite and it's going to p1ss down tomorrow anyway. I just found it mildly humerous they they insisted of cleaning a car which was quite obviously immaculate.

 

Rant nearly over. Mrs Fred and I agree that Motorline need a front of house rep (like Bournemouth) to guide people to the Service staff because many are left standing around and nobody talks to them. Rant now complete.

 

I am quite happy that this is on a public forum as it is factually correct.

 

Jeff.

I am totally with you on this one Jeff. I look after my Nismo like my motorbikes - it never goes out on wet roads!!! It has done 3500 miles in 3 years and yet the dealer always insists on cleaning it and it comes out dirtier than when it went in!! :nono:

 

Next week is service and first MOT and I have specifically requested no wash..........we shall see!!
