Along with a key to the door, a key to a brand new car is often a favourite 21st birthday present.
However, it’s a bit of a rich gift for a 10-year-old, owner of Pukekohe Honda, Kerry Brocas concedes.
“However, our business only turns the big one-zero once, so we think it’s only fair to splash out! Okay, so the launch of the all new 10th generation Honda Civic wasn’t planned to coincide with our 10th birthday, but it makes for a great double celebration.”
The location of Pukekohe Honda (corner of Manukau Road and Massey Avenue) has become a piece of local automotive history. Originally established as Howe & Weston 90 years ago, Kerry says the company has long adopted a forward-thinking approach.
“Since Patumahoe’s Les Howe and his partner, George Weston, helped their first customer into their first car, the focus has always been on providing the people of Pukekohe with the latest and greatest vehicles, backed by expert after-sales support. When Sandra Harvey and I took on the business, we knew we had some big boots to fill. Fortunately, by drawing on Les and George’s example, we’ve managed to build on their great name. And, supplying some of the best cars on the market today doesn’t hurt either!” Kerry laughs.
Sporty and dynamic, the 10th generation Honda Civic is quickly gaining a reputation for advanced performance, while drawing on classic, cherished Civic style.
From LED running lights and taillights, to sophisticated Honda Sensing safety technology (including Lane Keeping Assist, and new Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow) the latest Civic is designed for function and form, Kerry says. “In a nutshell, it’s just a pleasure to drive! Really, I could sit here all day rattling off features this beautiful car offers, but there’s no substitute for simply jumping in behind the wheel.
“And, from July 29, we’re welcoming anyone looking for a modern, yet affordable, vehicle to do just that!”
Aside from supplying new and used Hondas (from hatchbacks and sedans to SUVs), Kerry and his crew offer repairs and servicing. “Even the most sophisticated, hightech vehicles can be let down by poor maintenance,” he explains.
“One day, maybe, we’ll have a self-servicing car on the market but, thankfully, until then our team of specialist technicians is on hand to help!
“There might be plenty of mechanics out there who can service or repair Hondas, but not too many who carry the specialist expertise that our guys have on tap.”
And as flexible lease and finance packages are available, locals need not save away too long before heading out on the open road in a brand new Honda.
“There’s no one car to suit everyone, and there’s no one financing solution either. “There’s no one car to suit everyone, and there’s no one financing solution either. That’s why we offer flexible solutions tailored to suit almost any budget.
So, why wait any longer to experience the latest Honda has to offer?”
