AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Howdy Honda, an Austin, Tex. Honda dealership, recently earned its ninth Honda President's Award, symbolizing its ongoing excellence and ability to meet the needs of its customers.
As one of the most prestigious honors Honda can bestow upon its dealerships, the award is a symbol of overall quality and customer care. Howdy Honda's accomplishments aren't limited to dollars and cents, however, as Honda recognizes its top dealers for their consistency in several facets.
"At Honda, we have a passion for excellence that serves as the driving force behind everything we do for our valued customers," says John Mendel, executive vice president of automobile sales for Honda. "The President's Award was introduced in 1995 as a way to challenge our dealerships to achieve the exacting standards Honda established for the brand. Throughout the years, the criteria have been altered to ensure we remain industry leaders in customer service and satisfaction."
To qualify for the President's Award, Honda dealerships are required to excel in a variety of areas, including customer satisfaction, sales, training, and facility image. Of the 1,000-plus Honda dealerships enrolled in the 2013 program, Howdy Honda was one of just 173 dealers to receive accolades.
Although all are vital to the dealership's success, a few of the criteria speak directly to the Howdy Honda customer experience, namely, quality vehicle selection and customer service. Those two elements come across in a variety of ways as Howdy Honda continues to fill its lot with the latest models like upcoming next-generation Honda Fit and the uniquely versatile Honda Crosstour. Additionally, Howdy Honda ensures its used and Certified Pre-Owned Honda models meet Honda's high quality standards.
In terms of the customer service experience, Howdy Honda works to provide an inviting and comfortable setting on the lot while also delivering useful resources and tools on the digital side of the dealership. With an array of financial tools, handy vehicle comparisons and an accessible service center, Howdy Honda has created a customer-friendly environment that eliminates many of the challenges associated with car shopping.
