In an exclusive VIP launch Howards Group proudly introduced Kia to Weston-super-Mare.

The stunning new state of the art showroom was well worth the wait at the Howards Group Hildesheim site.

The £750,000 development took four months to build and includes a separate customer waiting lounge with luxurious leather sofas, a 51-inch plasma screen, free WIFI, air-conditioning and built in drinks dispenser and water cooler.

Within the six-car showroom there is also an eight-bay workshop that will be manned by a Kia trained master technician, offering the highest level of expertise and service for all Kia customers.

Howards Kia will stock not just new, but a vast array of nearly new cars and are also an authorised replacement parts dealer for Kia.

Tony Lippe, Howards Group Franchise General Manager, said:“We are really excited to take on the Kia franchise and have created a visually stunning showroom. We can offer an exceptional level of service with our own fully-trained Kia master technician.

“Although we are very new to the brand we have secured the services of a master Kia technician to work alongside our existing team.

“We have also taken on three new mechanics and hope to add to that in the very near future.”

Tony explained that it was a brand new Kia franchise for Weston-super-Mare, with new management and staff.

“We hope that existing Kia customers who have had to travel to Taunton or Bristol for services after the previous Kia dealership closed will now come back to us at Kia Weston-super-Mare.

“We can promise them the same level of award-winning customer service we have been proud to deliver to all our customers for over forty years.”

At the official opening an exclusive VIP invitation was sent to 1,000 existing Howards Group customers who were entered into the prize draw to win a 51-inch plasma television.

As a launch offer Howards Kia teamed up with the manufacturers to offer brand new 13 plate Kias at unprecedented prices. These prices were unveiled at the event held on Saturday 9th March 2013.

  • Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
