Should be a fair chance then

I have tired of the multi franchise chains..
Citroen overalls.. and you have to find your little FIAT in a yard full of transits..

I would rather use a Chrysler dealer

Forward Autos have been a Fiat dealer for years - I remember seeing a 1999 MK1 Punto with Forward Autos number plates on it in down here in Oxfordshire in about 2004. They have a good reputation - I pointed someone towards them who had a new Tipo needing a service and he reported back that they were very good. They appear to offer simple, honest good service, so well worth a go.

Well thank you for that, that's good to hear. I am only a few miles away.

You're welcome. Quite a number of Fiat dealers have disappeared from the North West in the last few years, Forward Autos being one of only a couple with a good reputation that are left. Windsors Heswall (Wirral) and Wallasey aren't meant to be bad either, but I'd try Forward Autos first, especially if they're the nearest.
