Toyota retains highest ranking

Shah Alam, 30 October 2015 – UMW Toyota Motor celebrates its journey to greater customer satisfaction when it  ranked highest in the J.D. Power 2015 Malaysia Sales Satisfaction Index (SSI) for the third consecutive year. Toyota’s score is 791 points, well above the industry average of 752 points.

Conducted by the renowned global market information company, J.D. Power, the study examines six key factors that contribute to the overall customer satisfaction with their new-vehicle purchase in the mass market segment. These factors include, in order of importance: the salesperson, dealer facility, delivery timing, deal, delivery process and sales initiation. Toyota performs particularly well in majority of the criteria.

Expressing his delight on Toyota’s most recent achievement, UMW Toyota Motor Deputy Chairman Mr. Akio Takeyama said, “Clinching the first spot for three consecutive years gives us great pleasure. It is milestones such as this that continue to inspire and drive us to deliver not only quality products, but an overall meaningful experience with the brand.”

The 2015 Malaysia Sales Satisfaction Index (SSI) Study is based on responses from 2,371 new-vehicle owners in the mass market segment who purchased their vehicle between August 2014 and May 2015. The study was fielded between February and July 2015.

Datuk Ismet Suki, President of UMW Toyota Motor commented, “The title does not merely state our leadership position, but more importantly, it is a testament of our commitment to serve our customers, providing them with an enjoyable experience that is uniquely Toyota.”

Toyota’s robust team live and breathe the Kaizen philosophy of continuous improvement, and are regularly being trained to better understand the ever-evolving needs of discerning Malaysian customers. Toyota’s ‘customer first’ approach allows the company to put its customers’ interest on top priority and cemented Toyota’s strong position in Malaysia. 

“Let me take this opportunity to thank each and every member of UMW Toyota Motor, most especially our front-liners who had worked tirelessly to meet and even exceed our customers’ expectations,” Datuk Ismet Suki concluded.
