Thanks for your update, Gutterhead. :-) Yes, it's a difficult time for the sector, compounded by some own goals, eg. Pendragon making its costly move further into the used market, Lookers with its FCA investigation, Vertu 'wasting' shareholders money on buying back its own shares when that cash may be useful/needed a bit further out. I blame Pendragon's non-execs for letting Trevor Finn 'go rogue'. Lookers directors? Complacent? Vertu? Don't they know this is a cyclical sector, which could throw up big opportunities for those with the cash to take advantage? The better ones? Marshall's seems to be going ok and Caffyns has its property backing (if times get very tough).

Ed, I was trying to be balanced, you're right, they are a complete shower. From my contacts, June and Q2 was the worst dealer financial result for decades more profit warnings to come I'm sure

Falling knife guys....Stock level is biggest issue here - £969m..with no recovery of 3-7% drop in prices over May/June…no point working for nothing. … circa £29m to £67m hit due in just 2 months… Border Cars gone…PDG face big much bigger earnings revisions than alluded too. hxxps://www.am-online.com/news/dealer-news/2019/07/09/border-cars-faces-uncertain-future-amid-financial-difficulty?utm_campaign=09_07_2019_AM_daily_newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=AM%20-%20Newsletter%20-%20Daily&utm_source=adestra&utm_term=Border%20Cars%20faces%20uncertain%20future%20amid%20R16;financial%20difficulty’&gutid=22113

That's generous of you, Gutterhead, calling PDG a 'very average performer'. I'd rate them, 'bottom of the class'. I can't think of any motor trader doing worse than PDG atm.

Next admin task for Pendragon: production of their half year accounts to 30/6/2019, usually done early August. SP Below 15p this morning. Looks like the reality of their issues starting to take hold.

Porsche Cayman, but not the latest 4 cylinder '718'. Proper 6 cylinder 911 engine engine so far better balanced and easier to drive. Get one as simple as possible, no trick suspension, satnav, PDK etc etc. Just parking sensors, manual air conditioning and a manual gearbox in a nice colour. Just perfect

Interesting points of view . debsdowner - thanks for that - think you might be right , I remember buying a Skoda and the service cost me £150 , though I am sure it never moved from the bay in which I parked it . This was about 12 years ago . Porche1945 - again , thanks for your input . Personally I wouldn't describe my Focus as "poxy" . I am a strictly A to B driver , but in my "twilight years" I quite fancy a yummy vehicle (second childhood perhaps!!) . What would you recommend? Seriously . Genuine question . No I can't afford a new Porsche ! Budget will be current car plus another 24k .

He made things much worse.....fell out with most of the manufacturers, damaged group morale etc a poor appt as he did the same thing at Jardine profit warning to come soon after Q2 end I would guess

CEO Leaving now. Only been there a couple of months. Their trading update on 12th June showed he inherited some very challenging problems, which are going to take ages to resolve. Profit Margins are so slim in the sector that the effect these issues will have is going to be damaging for the foreseeable IMO. So not surprised he's going.

2trying "On servicing , they pick it up and return it , washed and cleaned inside out . No charge whatsoever , WOW !!" That is because all car manufacturers overcharge for servicing which is minimal so they wash the car to take up time to make you think a lot of servicing needs to be done. They normally use a power wash which can cause damage to the car.

Well - the other side of the coin . I got a new Ford Focus from Evans Halshaw - two years ago - it's two years old tomorrow! Not quite the "Top of the Range" , but just over 24 grand . Absolutely superb car - stunningly good and professional people . On servicing , they pick it up and return it , washed and cleaned inside out . No charge whatsoever , WOW !! This time next year I will be swapping it for a new one . From ? Guess where ? I'm actually temped with a Mustang ! I have no shares in this company . I give no financial advice whatsoever .

I travelled to buy a 2 year old used car from Evans Halshaw. On inspection a front wing panel was detached and there was rust on the tailgate which the salesman tried to pass off as normal wear and tear. I claimed expenses for the wasted journey. The manager refused to pay. I called customer services and threatened legal action. Within half an hour they agreed to pay up as there was something else wrong with the car that could damage the reputation of the company. In short I wouldn't touch this with a bargepole.

I'm glad that I sold my small holding in April although I did not expect today's RNS. The car store operation looks to be a serious problem.

The company moved emphasise to move into more sales of second hand cars flawed. What is bad news for investors is cars are a depreciating asset and stocks gone up. Bad news all round. Things could get much worse yet.

bigbigdave, the way the management have run the business we just might get the chance to relive the 2009 opportunity at 2p. Although this time I doubt it would recover to above 40p!!

Bought this at 2p 10 years ago selling for a nice profit, surely it can't go that low ever again?

PDG's software business is gaining traction and increase in the top line in that would largely fall into the bottom line. This could be significant in a few years.

Agreed.....by comparison to MMH (and also Lookers) PDG looks like a dog!
