Macinda Auto, a Honda dealership in Kuantan, has opened a body and paint centre, and has become a full 4S centre (Honda’s 10th in Malaysia) offering sales, service, spare parts and spray painting.

Occupying 6,000 square metres of built-up land, the new Macinda Auto Body and Paint Centre is located next to the showroom and service centre. RM9 million was invested into this facility, of which RM1.5 million was allocated towards the provision of a complimentary computer and WiFi, a customer lounge, shuttle service and a kids’ play area.

The body and paint centre makes use of eco-friendly waterborne paint. Without harmful solvent, this natural composition reduces pungent smells and detrimental compounds, while being more colour-accurate than solvent-based paints and keeping the risks of toxic fumes and fire in check.

To date, there are a total of 70 Honda dealers in Malaysia, of which four are 1S centres, 56 are 3S centres and the remaining 10 are 4S centres. Honda Malaysia targets to have a total of 90 dealers by 2015.
