Nationwide Autocentre's chief executive Tom Dunn, says: "With a head office based in the West Midlands, we are more aware than most of the devastating effect that recent events at MG Rover will have on the UK car industry and its associated businesses. We don't believe that MG Rover drivers should become victims as well and we have the resources, network and people to do something about that.
“We already service thousands of vehicles every year that are under warranty, so by offering our service facilities at half the normal labour cost, we hope this will lift some of the burden." The initiative is currently being employed across the Nationwide Autocentre network and support for the scheme is already growing.
The offer runs till March 31, 2006 when it will be reviewed.
