Geely comes to Chana SA rescue

2013-01-15 21:06

PARTS SUPPORT FOR CHANA OWNERS: Thanks to Parts Support, Chana owners won't be left to fend for themselves during vehicle maintenance and repairs.

CAPE TOWN - Chana customers have been thrown a lifeline by Geely SA, once Chana’s biggest rival. Geely sister company Parts Support will be supplying the complete range of Chana parts in the country.

Although only selected Geely workshops will be able to service Chana vehicles, Parts Support said it will be able to supply all mechanical, service and accident parts, including components, to service and repair outlets throughout SA.

'PRICES COMPETITIVE'

In 2010 the Dacar Motor Corporation (DMC), parent company of Geely SA, took a controlling stake in Parts Support, who has been importing Chinese parts to South Africa since 2009.

Parts Support managing director Dickie Marais says his company has bought the complete spares supply of the former Chana SA, which closed its doors in 2012.

Marais said: “We will unfortunately not be able to honour any warranty claims on Chanas, but we can supply any parts their service technicians might need.

"Owners who would prefer to service or repair their vehicles themselves, can contact us for contact details on where to source parts.

“Our prices have always been very competitive and we will keep it that way,” promises Marais, adding that they will be able to supply any parts indefinitely.

Parts Support can be contacted on 011 472 5542.
