An advertisement plastered on the front page of Sydney’s Manly Daily newspaper this weekend has sent a charged message to drivers on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, and a signal to the whole country: the age of electric mobility has arrived, and there’s no going back.
As of 31st August Col Crawford ceased to be a Nissan Dealer. After 47 years of representing Nissan (originally known as Datsun), Nissan Motor Company Australia has chosen not to renew our Dealer Agreement. This decision by Nissan has not been performance based. Such as a Manufacturer (Franchisor) can design and have in place in a Dealer Agreement with the current Australian legislation and franchising codes, non-renewal, and in our case the franchisor has simply made the decision not to renew the franchisee’s (Col Crawford’s) term as a Dealer.
As Reviewed by Col Crawford staff member Nick Hughes ….I have recently been given the privilege of driving the Holden Commodore VF SSV Redline Sedan with the W310 Walkinshaw Power Pack as my company drive car. So I thought I’d take a moment to share what a great experience I have had in this vehicle.
