The last three years of owning an Outlander PHEV and being looked after by Livery Dole has been the best dealership experience I’ve had. A very friendly and helpful team. That was a big factor in replacing the car with another Mitsubishi when it was due.
Really friendly and informative customer service. They were very friendly and helpful. Just purchased an Eclipse Cross and it’s a beaut. Thanks to all LD team. One very happy customer!
We could not have been happier with our experience purchasing our L200! Excellent, informative and friendly customer service from start to finish, thank you again to Zaak, Joe and the rest of the team!
Had a fairly serious breakdown (Outlander balancer shaft and cambelt) while on holiday in Devon. Contacted Livery Dole who were absolutely outstanding, especially Kate who pulled so many strings to get us repaired and back on the road in less than three days. They provided a courtesy car so we could continue our holiday. Our car now runs better than it ever has. Best customer service I think I’ve ever had from a garage. Well done and thanks.
I previously owned a Colt and wasn’t sure about changing, but now I have my new Mirage its fantastic and the performance is fantastic.
My ASX is ideal for off roading, towing the boat and launching from the beach. It also has plenty of space for the dogs. An all round good vehicle. This is the third Mitsubishi I’ve had, all being reliable vehicles.
