University Honda wins for TopTech and TopAdviser in Southern Oregon. In a spirited announcement ridden with 27 explanation points, American Honda Motor Co. has just announced that Kevin Rooper (pictured right) and Keith Erhardt (left) are the winners of Honda’s Southern Oregon zone competition. All Honda dealers south of McMinnville compete for these awards, including Salem, Albany and Eugene. Amazingly, winners in both categories are from University Honda in Corvallis, OR.
The TopTech award (top technician) was earned by longtime University Honda employee Kevin Rooper, for his ability to correctly diagnose all synchronized problems and electronic failures in the shortest amount of time. In addition to achieving TopTech, Kevin is a Honda master technician at University Honda with an impressive track record of diagnosis and quality repairs. The TopAdviser award for customer interaction, product knowledge, and cost effective solutions was given to Keith Erhardt. Keith is also a longtime employee with University Honda, and has been hailed by locals for decades. His expertise in Honda knowledge and customer care is second to none, and this award proves it.
So how good are Kevin and Keith really? Are they they best in the west? Best in the country? Only time will tell, as they are scheduled to compete with the winners of 11 other states on October. If they win that competition, it’s on to the nationals, held in January 2018. If you see them on you next visit to University Honda, be sure to congratulate them on their success and wish them luck at the regionals!
