American Honda Motor Co. Inc. recently announced that Straub Honda has been chosen to receive American Honda’s President’s Award for the second year in a row and fourth time in the company’s history.

This award is presented annually to a small group of Honda dealerships, from among more than 1,000 nationwide, for exceptional performance in all aspects of dealer operations, including customer care and experience and sales and service performance.

The award was presented recently in the Straub Honda showroom in Triadelphia. Straub received a President’s Award trophy that symbolizes the dealership’s achievement.

“Honda is proud to recognize the outstanding achievements of our President’s Award dealerships,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of the Auto Division for Honda. “This award signifies each dealership’s commitment to achieving exceptional results in vehicle sales, customer experience, customer care in both sales and service and brand representation. Straub Honda and its team members delivered exceptional vehicle services and outstanding customer experiences — precisely what earned them this year’s Honda President’s Award.”

As the only Honda dealer recipient of this award in the entire state of West Virginia, we especially want to thank our loyal customers and friends, as well as our entire dedicated Straub Honda team, who strive every day to provide our customers with a superior experience.”
