The Inchcape spokesperson said: “Inchcape Australia and its component companies (AutoNexus, Peugeot Citroen, Subaru and Trivett Retail) recently experienced an IT system outage, the cause of which continues to be investigated.

“This impacted a variety of IT systems, necessitating the use of alternative channels for a period, to communicate with customers and suppliers.

“While the majority of systems are now restored, work continues to fully restore some functions.

“Investigations continue to identify the cause of the outage and if any data is identified as being compromised, Inchcape will notify the relevant parties and work with them to ensure the integrity of their material.
