Mercedes-Benz names 2013 Star Dealer Award winners


Mercedes-Benz has announced its top-performing dealers from its national network and once again, Ontario stores are predominantly on top.

Seven of the 10 spots were nabbed by stores in the Greater Toronto Area. Two awards went to Quebec stores with David Morris Fine Cars grabbing the only Star Dealer Award for Western Canada.

The “prestigious and highly coveted designation” was established to recognize the achievements of the top ten authorized Mercedes-Benz dealers in Canada.

The automaker said its Star Dealers are selected based on their overall performance in five separate categories: new and pre-owned sales, service and parts, and customer satisfaction.

The award-winning dealers (from East to West) are as follows:

Laval Boulianne                Mercedes-Benz Saguenay                               Saguenay, QC

“It is imperative that our valued customers consistently receive an unparalleled sales and aftersales experience that is commensurate with the brand and its core values,” said Tim Reuss, company president.

“It was the most competitive race in our history, but these 10 dealers differentiated themselves from a truly exceptional group. I want to congratulate each one for setting a benchmark, and thank all of our dealers from coast-to-coast for their continued and unwavering commitment to excellence.”
