When you visit a J.D. Power and Associates Dealer of Excellence, you can be assured that the dealership is committed to providing you an outstanding customer experience during the sales and service process. Only a handful of dealerships across the nation earn the distinction of being a Dealer of Excellence. These dealerships not only have high customer satisfaction, but they follow a set of sales and service standards to ensure they meet your needs—everything from providing written price quotes to weekend service hours to responding to inquiries quickly.
The Dealer of Excellence program recognizes dealers who provide "An Outstanding Customer Experience" during the new-vehicle sales and service process. The program, which is independently administered by J.D. Power and Associates, was initiated partly in response to consumer demand for standardized, credible and independent information regarding automotive dealership performance throughout the United States. Using a combination of survey data, mystery shopping and in-dealership audits, J.D. Power and Associates certifies only those dealers that meet or exceed predetermined satisfaction scores and agree to uphold specific sales and service processes. In addition, dealerships that earn this recognition are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that program standards are upheld.
