St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
Crown Hyundai has been honored with the inaugural Five Star Premier Dealer Award from Edmunds.com, the premier resource for car shopping and automotive information. The award, presented last month at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Convention and Expo in Orlando, Florida, recognizes car dealers who earned the highest marks for customer satisfaction in Edmunds.com’s Dealer Ratings and Reviews.
“Edmunds.com believes that customer service should be the number one priority for any dealership that wants to be successful,” says Edmunds.com President Seth Berkowitz. “Crown Hyundai presents a model for customer satisfaction, and we congratulate its entire staff for creating an exceptional car buying experience.”
Crown Hyundai is one of only three Tampa-St. Petersburg area dealers to win Edmunds.com’s 2013 Five Star Premier Dealer Award. A total of 95 dealerships from 33 U.S. metropolitan markets were recognized with the award. The Los Angeles market is home to the most award winners with 15, followed by the Boston and New York City markets with 10 apiece.
“I am very proud of our team in both sales and service,” said Crown Hyundai general manager G.R. Tarr. “The goal of exceeding our customers’ positive expectations is part of the culture that we embrace every day.”
Only participants in Edmunds.com’s Premier Dealer program were considered for the 2013 Five Star Premier Dealer Awards. To be eligible for the award, the dealership must have earned an average customer review rating of five stars on Edmunds.com – with a minimum of 20 reviews during the previous two years – as of January 17, 2013.
