Further statement from Marshall Motor Group


Statement issued by Marshall Motor Group at 16:00 on Thursday 14th April 2005

Marshall Motor Group continues to monitor the situation developing at MG Rover following the appointment of administrators on 8th April.

The situation continues to evolve and the impact on Marshall Motor Group and its many customers, especially with regard to warranty cover, is not yet clear.

Marshall Motor Group will be issuing a full statement on the situation and the impact it has on its many MG Rover customers during week commencing 18th April, 2005.

Marshall Motor Group will also be writing to all of its MG Rover customers whose warranties may be affected.

In the meantime, all three Marshall Motor Group MG Rover dealerships (in Bedford, Peterborough and Cambridge) remain open for business and will do their best to look after Marshall customers in the usual way.

Customers are urged to ensure that they continue to maintain their cars properly according to the manufacturer schedule so as not to affect adversely their situation regarding the validity of their warranty. MG Rover parts are still freely available to meet demand.

Marshall Motor Group continues to hope for a swift and satisfactory outcome for all of the parties involved. After 85 years with MG Rover and its forebears, Marshall would be greatly saddened if MG Rover were to cease to exist.


Founded in 1909, the Marshall Group has a turnover of £2.5bn and over 5,700 employees. Headquartered on a 900-acre site in Cambridge, Marshall has three principal arms to the business: Aerospace and Defence; Property; and Ventures.
