PETALING JAYA: A 3S Honda dealership here has earned its wings as a 4S centre, officially opening its doors today.
The Tenaga Setia Resources-owned centre is now capable of doing spray painting jobs, turning it into one of only five 4S dealerships in the country to have this capability. Honda Malaysia has 61 dealers nationwide.
The Tenaga Setia Resources dealership relocated from Jalan 222 here to bigger premises nearby in Jalan 51/21, next to the Federal Highway, offering sales, services and spare parts as well.
The 115,853 square feet 4S centre, built with an investment of RM28.5 million, is equipped with 26 bays that is capable of servicing up to 120 cars a day.
The spray painting section is on the first floor of the multi-storey building and is spacious, being divided into various zones dedicated to restoring frames of accident cars, body repair, sanding, masking and finally spray painting, which is done in one of two booths.
The service bays are on the ground floor.
