    A new Service Manager in Howards Peugeot Weston-super-Mare

    It has recently been announced that Micheal Bavin will retiring in June this year, after providing 27 years of service at the Howards Peugeot Weston-super-Mare branch.


After 27 years service at Howards Peugeot Weston-super-Mare, Michael Bavin has announced that he will be retiring from the company at the end of June this year. Until then Mike will be undertaking a number of important Aftersales projects on behalf of the Howards group as a whole. Mike has made a huge contribution to the retailer over many years and will be greatly missed on his departure in the middle of the year.

The challenge of replacing Mike has fallen to another of Howards most talented and motivated Service Managers, Dave John. Dave is taking up the reins and returning to manage the Service Department at Weston-super-Mare following many successful years leading the Service Department at our Peugeot site in Taunton.

Dave has a wealth of experience with Howards and the Peugeot brand. After starting with the Group in January 1994 as a service technician, he worked his way through the ranks from Master Technician to Workshop Controller and then onto Service Manager at our Honda branch in Weston-super-Mare.  He remained there for 7 years during which time he took the Service department to 1st place in the UK for customer satisfaction.

Dave is delighted to be back on home ground as he lives with his family in Weston-super-Mare and this is where it all began for him back in 1994.  When you are next in the area pop in and Dave will be happy to introduce himself.  He prides himself on providing excellent customer service whilst ensuring customers receive the quality of workmanship and value for money expected from the very best of dealerships.  Dave and his team look forward to welcoming you to Howards Peugeot in Weston-super-Mare in the very near future.

  • Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only. Company Number: 1108986

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
