BR Suzuki to maintain repair, parts operations

Royal Suzuki of Baton Rouge will shift its operations from auto sales to providing warranty, repair and parts services for local Suzuki owners under an agreement with American Suzuki Motor Corp.

The dealer settlement agreement is part of American Suzuki’s previously announced restructuring, which includes dropping U.S. auto sales. American Suzuki, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in early November, will continue selling motorcycles/ATVs and boat motors.
