Well,
I live in a small town where we don't have a dedicated Triumph dealer. I
figured I could just take it to the local Government Motors dealer and get the
same stellar service they offer for their own vehicles! I mean, a car is a car
right? Hopefully they will also be able to help me disable and bypass all the
unnecessary stuff that came on the car, it's just added weight anyway.

phone line, I can only assume they are so busy with customer calls.

so I'm eager to find a local dealer who will honor this. I'm presuming this
service will be just 1-2 hours to change oil/filter & adjust/lube other items?
My car is my daily driver so I will want to get the service done expeditiously
& I hope that Triumph offers a free loaner vehicle program.

I agree triumph dealers are thin on the ground these days.



 Recently  I've had good luck servicing my wedge at  my local Honda dealer.

Discovered them when I had a Triumph Acclaim.  Best triumph I ever had BTW...

Too bad it wasn't a convertible,  because something about the front wheel

drive configuration made it a dream to drive.

Hahah...





I actually got new seat belts from Jaguar back in the mid-nineties as a result of that recall!





They didn't even want the old ones back - just had to email some guy with the VIN number of my car and they shipped out new belts!





Still have them new in a box somewhere... (I guess I should have replaced them but they looked too good to put on that car!)...





If only I could still do that recall, I would get a new set for my TR8 since I bought it afterwards...

Yeah, me too.  In the early/mid '90s, I sent my vin# to someone at Jaguar Cars and they shipped me a free pair of new seat belts.  And, I still have them in the box down in the garage...  I recall they do not look exactly like the original belts.
