After opening his first car showroom in 1979 in Keighley (and Suzuki's first dealership in the UK), Colin Appleyard soon realised the brands potential because of it's great value for money and good reliability. More than 40 years later, Suzuki cars in the UK have soared in popularity and we recently realised we'd passed another milestone - over 35,000 new Suzuki car sales.

And Mr and Mrs Gomersall have certainly contributed to that, as they recently purchased their 24th car from Colin Appleyard - a new Suzuki Jimny.

Mr and Mrs Gomersall who live in Holmfirth, have been customers of the Colin Appleyard Huddersfield branch since 1990, recently coming back to our Lockwood Road dealership to replace Mrs Gomersall's old model Jimny with a new one. Mr Gomersall himself drives the Suzuki Vitara 1.0 boosterjet, which he sings the praises of.

As a celebration of our recently milestone in sales and also as a thank you to the Gomersalls for their repeat custom over the last 30 years, branch manager Ijaz Ali presented them with a hamper whilst they reminisced about the vehicles they'd purchased from him over the years.

"The Suzuki Vitara is brilliant. The 1.0 boosterjet engine, like the reviews say, is a peach!"

The List

Mr Gomersall had come to the dealership prepared, and presented us with a full list of all the cars he and his wife had bought from Colin Appleyard since 1990, which included the engine type and colour.

The list included 5 non-franchise used cars and 19 new Suzuki cars spanning across the whole range! The Gomersalls explained that the reason they kept coming back to Colin Appleyard was because of the excellent service both from sales and aftersales. They also appreciated how well organised the dealership was during the current Covid-19 pandemic, when it came to their Jimny requiring its 1st service.

"The old Jimny was a little rough when on the road, but the new one is brilliant both on and off the road!"
