HONDA Malaysia today opened a new Honda 3S centre in the timber and agricultural town of Keningau, Sabah. The centre by Vermillion Autohaus Sdn Bhd is in a town halfway between Tenom and Tambunan, enabling it to also serve those neighbouring townships. Established with an investment of RM2.5 million on a 464.5 square metre build-up area, the new centre is equipped with four service bays with hoists that can accommodate up to 30 cars per day. The service bays include two fast service, one general repair and one tyre service bays. Adhering to Honda standards, Vermillion Autohaus has also furnished the centre with facilities such as a comfortable customer lounge, café counter with a variety of free flow snacks and drinks, surau and a “kids’ corner”. Also, there is free wi-fi, car wash, road tax renewal and insurance coverage. Honda Malaysia managing director and CEO, Toichi Ishiyama said: “Customer satisfaction is our number one priority. With the increasing customer base and demands in Sabah, Honda Malaysia is constantly looking for opportunities to not only enlarge our market share in Sabah, but to also provide the best after-sales service to our customers from all areas – from the big cities to the smaller towns and districts. With the opening of Vermillion Autohaus Honda 3S centre in Keningau, we are able to expand our reach to another part of Sabah, and further enhance convenience and bring the ‘Joy of Buying’ to them. We are also working closely with our dealers to continuously improve customer satisfaction in our after-sales service.” Currently, Honda Malaysia has 90 dealerships nationwide and Vermillion Autohaus’ centre is Honda’s fifth 3S centre in Sabah.
