Had to figure this was coming, hopefully everyone can get their cars before dealers start closing up shop. From what I was told Mews in Ottawa should be OK, even if they have to close one branch they can combine it with one of their other locations. I think you will see more of the rural dealers getting hit on this.

i would love to see a list of all the dealerships closing. I'm sure if I asked mine, they would just lie and say that everything is o.k. It would be really nice to know which ones are gonna be closing by the end of the year....

If your car is at 3000 and above, or even 1100, if your dealer was in fact closing, wouldnt the orders just be moved to another dealership?
Wouldnt want that to happen to myself, never know if the dealer will charge a mark up afterward or change the negotiated price

One of two ( 1 Chevy /1 Pontiac) will close in Kamloops and become GM.

Saturn will be gone too.

One (Dodge/Jeep ) will combine with Chrysler.

3 gone in a town of 80,000

I'd be very surprised if the Mews family can keep all 3 Chevy dealerships.
