The Yong Ming Motor Honda 3S Centre is located at PTD 209607, Jalan Bandar, Business Centre II 81700, Pasir Gudang.

Yong Ming Motor has a well-established relationship with Honda for over 48 years. The Pasir Gudang dealership is Yong Ming Motor’s second Honda dealership. The first Yong Ming Motor Honda dealership opened in Skudai, where they have maintained high quality sales and after-sales service which has enabled them to consistently emerge as a top dealer.
Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Toichi Ishiyama said, “With customer satisfaction being our main priority, it is very important for Honda Malaysia and our dealership partners to work together closely in order to serve our mutual customers better. This can only be achieved with strong support from our partners such as Yong Ming Motor. We believe this dealership expansion in Johor will provide more convenience to our customers, particularly in Pasir Gudang. Customers will be able to enjoy high quality service and after-sales offerings at an authorized Honda dealership nearer to them with upgraded facilities to enhance their Joy of Buying.”
The Director of Yong Ming Motor, Mr. Kenneth Cheng said, “We are grateful for the opportunity given to us by Honda Malaysia to grow our customer base in this area. Previously customers in this area had to travel far to view the latest models or to service their cars but with our new dealership we aim to offer them the best Honda experience closer to where they are. This showroom that we are opening today represents our continuing commitment to Honda Malaysia.”
