on widening the coverage to second tier cities – we will be covering Ipoh, Seremban and Kuantan soon. We’ve currently obtained 5,000 dealers onboard across the four markets
we’re in, and with the vast dealer network that we have, we’re looking to offer our
services to benefit more people and get better car selling prices for our customers,” said
