Japanese compact car specialist Daihatsu has increased its dealer network in Derbyshire, following the appointment of Farmers Garage.
The new franchise will join Subaru and Proton at its showroom in Matlock.
Dealer principal, Lesley Farmer, said: “Despite the challenging trading conditions, we hope to not only generate repeat business from satisfied customers but also to win new converts.
“This has helped us build up a loyal band of customers who have tended to stay with us over the years – very useful in these testing times.”
The Coleshill-based importer signed up 20 new dealers during 2008 and currently boasts 98 UK showrooms.
Meanwhile, Daihatsu is offering its 5/5/5 offer on Terios, consisting of five years free servicing, five years warranty and five years roadside assistance on registrations up to March 31.
