Wang Loo’s opening would strengthen Honda’s presence down south, allowing Johor-based Honda owners and buyers greater access to the brand’s service and dealership network. According to Fujimoto, folks in Johor accounted for 12% of 32,486 Honda cars sold in the country for 2008, and Honda estimates that its customer base in Johor amounts to 16,000 people.
To their credit, ever since taking back exclusive distributorship of Honda cars from Kah Motor, Honda Malaysia has worked to bring its entire network of dealers to 3S (Sales, Service & Spare Parts) status to ‘provide a total package of service and convenience to customers nationwide.’
Indeed, with Wang Loo’s addition, Honda’s number of 3S centres stands at 53, out of its 56 dealers. By 2010, Honda’s aim is to have 60 dealerships throughout the country, and Wang Loo’s addition to their network will be quickly followed by new branches opening in Penang and also Sarawak.
