Toyota, Lexus and Hino achieve Platinum at 2024 NADA DSI Awards



Toyota and its affiliated brands Lexus and Hino, each took home a platinum award at the National Automobile Dealers’ Association (NADA) Dealer Satisfaction Index Awards at a prestigious ceremony held on Tuesday, 2 July 2024.



Notably, the top three most prevalent questions in predicting satisfaction-loyalty were whether the dealers perceive their brand to: set the standard for excellence in the industry, responds to changing needs, and is committed to win-win solutions.

Toyota, Lexus and Hino were among four brands who achieved Platinum status (85% and above).


“To be awarded Platinum status by our dealers is something we do not take for granted. We continue to strive to create the best partnerships in the industry in order to find mutual solutions to our challenges,”

says Leon Theron, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Toyota South Africa Motors.

Your hard work and dedication is truly commendable and deeply appreciated. Thank you to our dealers for voting and for the valuable feedback which we always analyse to embrace the Toyota spirit of Kaizen or continuous improvement.
