This year Berry Motor Group have helped sponsor Neville Emond to race his 1996 850 R Volvo in the Targa Tasmania 2016. The race started on Monday 11th April in Legana, and carried on to Saturday 16th finishing up in Longley. Neville had an overall finish of 9th out of 38 in his class. Everyone was very impressed with Neville's Volvo as it was the only station wagon in the race. Here are some photos of Neville's 850, and the Volvo's from the week.

Car companies are trying to put independent workshops out of business

We have reprinted an article below written by Andrew Holdsworth (http://avghinvestments.com.au/blog ) that talks about a critical issue that can effect all car owners and certainly the livelihood of independent workshops such as the Berry Motor Group."We all know that cars produced today are equipped with amazing technology with some cars featuring as many as 4 independent computers to operate all the different systems.But did you know that many manufacturers purposely withhold technical specifications and fault diagnosis codes to force customers to only use new car dealers for vehicle servicing.If car owners are forced to only take their cars to specific dealers, then they can charge whatever prices they like. This is obviously anti-competitive.In the US, it is mandatory that ALL manufacturers make all their service documents and technology available all workshops in the country thereby promoting open competition.But despite 68 Australian car manufacturers and importers signing up to an Industry Heads of Agreement on vehicle data sharing, only one manufacturer is fully compliant today.In February of this year, the AAAA, an industry group representing many independent workshop owners took this issue to Canberra seeking a cross party agreement that would see all manufacturers sharing essential vehicle diagnostic and repair information.As concerned members of the public and independent workshop owners, we encourage you to contact your local member on this issue and continue to support independent workshops".These car company buildings pictured above have been included for illustrative purposes only. Please contact you local workshop to see if your car make is effected.
