4 --- Howick and Botany Times, Wednesday, February 6, 2013 www.times.co.nz Aiming high with Hyundai ADVERTORIAL 121591 Just as Burt Munro famously redefined Amer- ican motorcycle Indian Scout with his Kiwi enterprise in the World's Fastest Indian, one Manukau business is translating a global brand into a true Kiwi experience. Manukau Hyundai on Great South Rd has been up and running for only five years but already it is proving to be an outstanding busi- ness in both local and international arenas. Locally owned and owner-operated by New Zealanders, the thriving Hyundai dealership spe- cialises in the sales of new and used Hyundai vehicles and parts, as well as servicing, mainte- nance and finance. With one of the largest fleets of Hyundai vehicles in New Zealand, all displayed immacu- lately in its brand new Elite showroom, Manukau Hyundai is housed in a state-of-the-art facil- ity designed with comfort and convenience in mind. In order to secure Elite dealership status, the company first has to meet Hyundai's interna- tional standards -- something it has not only met, but exceeded. And it certainly shows. Everything from the coffee machine, to the bright and contemporary reception area, which also boasts free Wifi, is nothing short of impressive. Native New Zealand plants and scenery adorn the premises -- relating to locals is at the top of the company's priorities. But appearances aside, co-owner Shaun Moses says the business' true strength lies in customer service and its people. "We strive to deliver the best car ownership experience in New Zealand -- that's our ultimate aim. Our focus is entirely on people and our customers. We have a great product backed by great people," Shaun says. "As a result, we have a strong and loyal base of customers who trust us enough to refer us on to their family and friends." He adds that the team prides itself on being problem solvers and delivers every aspect of its service with utmost integrity. In addition, Shaun says the after-care service is second to none. "We offer full servicing per- formed by Hyundai-trained technicians as well as on-site-grooming and loan vehicles -- and we go the extra mile to recommend reliable, Hyundai-approved panel beaters for all panel repairs." Ever bought a secondhand car ridden with troubles? Well, at Manukau Hyundai all used cars are inspected to the highest of standards, the quality is always guaranteed and there are extended warranties and service plans available to ensure minimal hassle for the client. "We also have a 10-year anti-corrosion guar- antee on all new vehicles, something that is quite rare with many manufacturers," Shaun says. Raised in Howick for most of his life, Malay- sian-born Shaun has loved the motoring indus- try for as long as he can remember. "I've always had a passion for cars," says the Flat Bush man who has a hobby of collecting late '80s' sports cars. He even recalls offering his services to a mechanic for free because he loved cars so much and wanted to learn everything about them. Now, it beggars belief that the same young man, when just out of high school worked as a forecourt attendant and sold cars more than 10 years ago, would later stake a claim to one of the fastest growing and most reliable brands in the motoring industry. Within five years of running the business, Shaun has developed a strong and reliable team customers know, recognise and trust. "We have Peter Tolley, our excellent customer service manager, Chris Keith, our assistant ser- vices manager, as well as sales and finance manager Justin Wilson who has been here since the start of the business," Shaun says. "Chris is also one of 10 in the world to bear the Outstanding Skill title which was awarded to him at the most recent Hyundai Service Advisor Championship last year -- we're extremely proud of him." The high calibre of the team coupled with the Hyundai brand has produced a winning formula. "The range is ever expanding and the brand itself has come a long way since its conception. More and more Kiwis are associating the Hyun- dai brand with quality," he says. "In particular, 2012 has been a successful year for Manukau Hyundai," adds Shaun. "We've been awarded accolades such as Marketing Dealership of the Year and Customer Experience of the Year -- titles we certainly intend on keeping and adding on to by striving for excellence." Whether it's a new or used car, a second car for the family or quality service you're after, the team at Manukau Hyundai have every aspect of motoring taken care of.
