JAKARTA —— With the rapid growth of Chevrolet sales in Indonesia, and the positive reception of Chevrolet Spin from the public, General Motors (GM) Indonesia continues its commitment to providing a line-up of value for money vehicles. One of the main variables to fulfill the commitment is to offer more competitive parts pricing to Chevrolet customers.
Today, GM Indonesia announces that Chevrolet spare parts are offered up to 40 percent lower from current retail price. This programme will be officially rolled out on June 2014, and aimed to ease customers’ access to Chevrolet’s fast-moving and critical parts with lower price, especially for parts that commonly used for regular maintenance purpose, such as: Engine Oil, Oil Filter, Fuel Filter, Air Cleaner, Drive Belt, Brake Pad, Brake Shoe, Disc Clutch, and Cover Clutch.
GM Indonesia Customer Care director, Dadan Ramadhani, explained, “The parts price reduction programme was made possible through excellent coordination between all stakeholders such as Aftersales, Supply Chain, and Purchasing functions. By that, GM are able to readjust the parts price for fast-moving and critical parts which are the most sought after by consumers. The adjustment will reduce the part price up to 40 percent”.
The critical parts price reduction will be implemented mainly for the three backbone models, which are New Aveo, Captiva, and Spin (all variants).
In spite of 41 Dealers and 3 ASO (Authorised Service Outlet), Chevrolet also has approximately 730 part shops covering areas in all over Indonesia. Parts availability is also supported by warehouse area expansion which has now occupied almost 8,000 square metres, and is capable of storing up to 33,000 types of spare parts, which can be distributed daily throughout Indonesia.
