Company sales of new and used cars increased both on a like-for-like basis and overall, giving total new car sales last year of 27,620 (1998: 25,108) and used car sales of 29,784 (1998: 28,654). Dixon said new car demand was weak and falling secondhand car values resulted in the company reducing used vehicle stocks by £11 million. The company's accident repair centres - Dixon Car Clinics - saw business increase 10%.
