Sue Finneron says there are two reasons why her dealership was just named the top Hyundai dealership in the country.

“We have staff that are just the best team going, as far as I am concerned – a fantastic team – and also, we have fantastic, loyal customers,” she said.

In January, Finneron Hyundai was named a  President’s Award of Merit winner for the second straight year – an honour bestowed to the top 15 Hyundai dealerships in the country.

From those top 15, one is then selected as the overall; best dealership in Canada.

Finneron said it is based on a bunch of different criteria, such as sales, customer service and market share. Each of the President’s Order of Merit winners is judged in every category, numbers are crunched and an overall winner is determined.

On Feb. 5, for the first time in its short, seven-year history, Finneron Hyundai was named the top dealership in the country.

“Last year we were in the top 15 and I was so proud of that achievement,” said Finneron. “This is just over the top this year. This could be the only time this ever happens. It’s something you dream about.”

There are 220 Hyundai dealerships in Canada, including five on Vancouver Island. Finneron Hyundai is the first such Vancouver Island dealership to be bestowed with the honour of top dealership in Canada.
