Received a letter today from my local dealer in Newport (or I should say ex-local dealer as they are no longer Daihatsu dealers. "As you are currently aware Daihatsu are currently not bringing new vehicles to the UK due to a very week Yen. This situation is currently very fluid and as much as the manufacturer continues support for parts and warranty, no cars have been imported into the UK for some considerable time. We have now reached a point that there are no new Daihatsu cars in the UK and with the Yen still far away from a point where it is viable to recommence imports there is no sign of any change to the situation in the foreseeable future. What does this mean to you? Nothing to worry about as we will continue to support all servicing repairs and warranty, however you should be aware that as the Daihatsu withdrawal continues and it becomes more common knowledge the inevitable accelerated depreciation of your car will occur, added to parts cost which sine have risen by up to 60% to allow for currency fluctuations and their decreasing UK parts stock, maybe it's time to consider other options as this may be your last chance to maximise the value of your Daihatsu. As I'm sure you're aware we now represent both Suzuki and Mitsubishi, however as it stands at present we have customers waiting for used Daihatsu's and I feel I have at least some moral responsibility to offer some very special opportunities unique to Daihatsu owners giving you a large discount off certain new Suzuki or Mitsubishi cars as well as an inflated part exchange price.
