After over 2 years with a local VW dealer I've, thankfully, returned to Hodgson Mazda MetroCentre and been afforded personal attention - as opposed to, 'just another owner'. The entire experience with Hodgson, from the sale through to pick up of new vehicle, and being introduced to their personable Service Team, has been exemplary. Long may Hodgsons remain a family-run business, and not a corporate behemoth. - Ken Stout, 5/5 star rating (Hodgson Mazda Gateshead)

I can’t recommend Richard at the Toyota garage in Gateshead highly enough. He went above and beyond to help me today with something I was really struggling to sort out. Thank you Richard - Lousie Khazaee, 5/5 star rating (Hodgson Toyota Gateshead)

Great staff, always very helpful and to the point. Love that they let you take the car for a drive by yourself. Had many suzuki's in the past and will not go anywhere else. - Michael Reed, 5/5 star rating (Hodgson Suzuki Newcastle)

I've had lots of cars over the years and dealt with most dealerships in the Newcastle area and I can honestly say that Hodgson toyota are the best dealership I've ever dealt with! So professional and friendly also so organized and efficient. The other great thing about Hodgson is they sell and service Toyota as someone who does 25k miles a year I can say that Toyota are the best brand going for reliability and longevity, I love my new yaris and it was a pleasure dealing with Lyndsey who sold me the car she is excellent at her job and a credit to the company. I definitely recommend buying or getting your car serviced at Hodgson's. - Ryan McCormick, 5/5 star rating (Hodgson Toyota Gateshead)



Great service from Ali and Neil, not pushy at all. Big plus was the reasonable prices both for the new car and the trade in. Based on this experience I will be going to Hodgson for my servicing - Martin Walls, 5/5 star rating (Hodgson Mazda Newcastle)

Bough my fourth car in ten years from Hodgson Metrocentre .Dealt with the same sales exec.every time John Grant.Think that says it all five stars - Richie Daycott, 5/5 star rating (Hodgson Toyota Gateshead)

 I can not fault my experience at Hodgson Mazda. I’ve just bought a Mazda CX-5 and the service I received from first walking in to then being handed my keys has been first class. The whole team were friendly and welcoming. John was excellent, and I even had the pleasure of meeting Mr Hodgson himself! Mark is definitely the most “non pushy” and “non pressurising” car salesman I’ve ever met. He was approachable and happy to help from the start. He most certainly has his customers best interests at heart. Not another dealership like them in my opinion! 100% recommend! Thank you so much :-)​ - Jill Maholem, 5/5 star rating (Hodgson Mazda Newcastle)
