Hyundai Motor Company Australia has announced winners of the second annual Hyundai Platinum Dealer Program at a ceremony in Melbourne, recognising outstanding achievement from top performing Hyundai dealerships across the nation. To receive a Platinum Award the dealership must achieve excellence across Sales, Service, Parts, Customer Satisfaction, and profitability.
