To cater to growing customer demand for accessories for 4WD vehicles, Automotive Corporation (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, the distributor of Isuzu vehicles, has set up a 4×4 Gallery at its branch in Jalan Ma’arof, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur.
The 4×4 Gallery, which officially opens today, carries accessories for Isuzu vehicles as well as items of interest to off-road enthusiasts. According to Hisamuddin Abdul Wahid, the manager of the branch which is also designated the company’s 4WD Centre in KL,the prices of the accessories offered are about 10% lower than prices charged in other accessory shops.
“These are accessories which we have imported from well known companies like JAOS, TJM and Thule and they are only for Isuzu models like the Rodeo and Trooper,” Encik Hisamuddin told AUTOWORLD.COM.MY.
According to Encik Hisamuddin, the company’s feedback from customers – especially those buying models like the Isuzu Rodeo – showed that there was demand for more options to customise their vehicles. Therefore, as a service to customers, ACM decided to bring in the more popular types of accessories and offer them at special prices.
“We also offer advice on customisation and as we have been selling Isuzu dual-purpose vehicles for two decades, we have a great deal of experience on the subject,” he said. “We can provide advice to customers on what are the practical ways to modify their vehicles and the problems they may face if they want to install some accessories which are not suitable.”
The ACM 4WD Centre in Kuala Lumpur also looks after the 500-strong Isuzu Owners Club which periodically organises activities for its members. Encik Hisamuddin also revealed that the company is considering opening 4WD Centres at its branches in Johor Bahru and Penang in future as interest in off-road vehicles and activities is growing rapidly around the country.
