Both dealerships under the new management by us, the Thorp Motor Group
As valued customers (new and old) of the Thorp Motor Group, we would like you to be amongst the first to know of the exciting news regarding our dealership expansion.
Effective 1 December 2017, Subaru Cape Town will fall under the new management of the Thorp Motor Group. This dealership will be renamed to Subaru Table View. All operations and services will continue as is.
Additionally, we are proud to announce the opening of Subaru South at our current Plumstead branch. After diligent consideration and feedback from our esteemed customer base, we believe that the location of this facility will provide convenient access to Subaru sales and after-sales for all customers who choose our Plumstead dealership as their new Subaru home.
Both Subaru Table View and Subaru South will fall under the new management of the Thorp Motor Group.
We are a family run, service orientated business in operation since 1994. Serving Cape Town and surrounds with service excellence, originally as a GM dealer, The Thorp Motor Group was started by brothers Nicky and Robert Thorp in 1994. Operating out of premises in Plumstead they were appointed as Opel and Isuzu dealers by the then Delta Motor Corporation. From small beginnings, the dealership grew year on year - with the Fish Hoek branch opened in 1999, in 2004 Paarl was opened and in 2010 Claremont was opened, with Ceres and Wetton later to follow with GM representation.
Nicky Thorp, Owner and Franchise Director of Thorp Motor Group said, "When GM announced their exit from the SA market, we looked for an aspirational brand to complement our Isuzu range. As a brand that resonates with our own core values of advanced technology and the highest quality of customer service, it was a natural fit and we are proud to be the new Subaru brand custodian for Cape Town”.
With after sales customer satisfaction paramount to the brand’s slogan of ‘Confidence in Motion’, a renewed focus will be on servicing and parts supply for Subaru owners. Deon van Heerden, National Technical Manager for SSA said, “Under the competent custodianship of the Thorp Motor Group, Subaru is better placed to deliver an excellent service to all our Cape Town customers. Having a second dealership provides our customers with better choice and convenience, with the competence and reputation of the Thorp Motor Group standing behind our brand.”
Warren Thorp, Operations Director, concluded, “We invite all Subaru owners within our reach to come in and meet the new passionate team behind the brand. As a family business we pride ourselves in the values of Customer Care and in... “Creating Customers for Life”. And this is precisely what we aim to deliver through both our Subaru dealerships”.
