Thoughts on “KINTO FACTORY”
I am very happy about the addition of a new line-up to the “KINTO FACTORY” this time.I would like to buy a new car in particular, but due to the current shortage of semiconductors and other factors due to the coronavirus, the delivery time will be greatly extended, so there are many cases of purchasing a used car. In that case, if you buy a car that does not have a manufacturer’s option, such as wanting to add a “blind spot monitor” after purchase, you can use “KINTO FACTORY” to add it later, which increases satisfaction. will also rise. I would like to expect the expansion of the car model in the future.
