Congratulations To SEAT’s Oldest Customer


Congratulations are in order for 94 year old Mick Kearns who recently purchased an all new SEAT Mii from Colton Motors in Tullamore. Mick, a retired postman purchased his first car, a Morris 1,000 in 1962. Commenting on collecting his latest car Mick said, “Being awarded the title of the oldest SEAT customer in Ireland is something I never saw coming. Overall I am just delighted with my new car, the SEAT Mii and want to thank all the team at Colton Motors for all the help they have afforded me over the years. There a number of reasons I chose the SEAT Mii one of which is the fact that it has 5 doors. This is very important as a couple of my neighbours rely on me for lifts to mass every weekend and the 5 door is very convenient for this.”

Also commenting on this remarkable driving achievement, Niall Philips, Director at SEAT Ireland said, Mr. Kearns story is truly remarkable and we would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to him. Purchasing a new car at the age of 94 is such an uplifting story and we really hope Mr. Kearns enjoys his SEAT mii which is a very popular and successful model for us. The relationship between Colton Motors is testament to both dealer and customer and is symptomatic of the relationships our SEAT dealers are building with their customers up and down the country.”
