Valley Honda Earns Honda's Highest Dealership Honor 5 Years in a Row

STAUNTON, VA, March1, 2016

American Honda Motor Co., Inc., just announced that Valley Honda has been awarded the prestigious Honda President's Award for the 5th year in a row. This annual award is presented to Honda dealerships for exceptional performance in all facets of their operations - profitability, sales, vehicle condition, customer experience, service retention, and brand representation.

"The President's Award is bestowed on only those dealerships that excel," said John Mendel, Executive Vice President of automobile sales for Honda, "Earning this coveted recognition is a yearlong endeavor that requires focus and commitment by every dealership team member."

Valley Honda has received the Honda President's Award every year since it was opened by Carter Myers Automotive (CMA) in 2010. CMA is an employee-owned business, so every associate is incentivized to provide the best possible customer service. This award is a testament to that dedication.

Valley Honda carries the full line of reliable, fuel-efficient, and fun-to-drive Honda automobiles. The Honda lineup includes the Accord, Civic, Fit, and CR-Z, along with the Pilot, HR-V and CR-V sport-utility vehicles and the Honda Odyssey minivan.
