A Donegal town car dealer has just been awarded the distinction of top dealer in the country by one of Europe’s market leaders in the motor industry.

DMG Motors Ltd. which is located just outside Donegal Town on the main Ballybofey Rd. has won the Irish Skoda Dealer of the year award which includes all aspects of the dealership including customer satisfaction, aftersales service, display space and range of models on display and sales penetration in the area.

The award was presented to Dan McGinty and his staff by Zac Hollis, Brand Director of Skoda Ireland and Brendan Walsh Head of Skoda’s aftersales at a function in Harvey’s Point Hotel in Donegal Town.

The parent company Skoda Works was originally founded as far back as 1859 and has evolved into an extremely successful company and became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen group in the year 1991.

Skoda is in fact one of the oldest car manufacturers in the world. Dan McGinty of DMG Motors said, “We are obviously delighted with the recognition that Skoda have shown us here in Donegal - this is a tribute to all the team here in Donegal Town who without their commitment, this could never have happened.

“The brand is showing increasing popularity not just in our immediate area but throughout the country.

“As part of the Volkswagen/Audi group it is known for its reliability and durability, its quality build and safety.

“I suppose one of the most important factors in these financially challenging times is the value concept - it is well priced compared to similar models of other manufacturers but also is known to be very fuel efficient. With fuel prices increasing almost on a daily basis this is on every motorist’s mind, fuel efficiency is paramount.

Dan added, “It also has a great residual value which effectively means it has a good second value for those seeking out a reliable second hand model.

“We are 16 years with Skoda and have succeeded in increasing our market share in tough times - it has been a very successful for ourselves and Skoda and indeed the motorists of the North West.” DMG Motors wish to thank their customers for their valued support over the past 16years.
