IMPROVED servicing options and a greater choice in the one place has led Gladstone's Hyundai dealership to move back in with Gladstone Nissan.
Running costs also played a part in the move, with business steadying as the town comes off the boom.

But the key message is if you drive past the empty sales rooms on Dawson Hwy opposite the hockey fields - don't worry, you can still find the latest Hyundai models in Gladstone.
The two businesses, both owned by Errol Roots and managed by Ross Turner, are now under the same roof at 231 Dawson Hwy, opposite the Bunnings Centre.
Mr Turner said the franchises had worked well together previously, and he saw no reason why that couldn't happen now.
"People have two choices in the one place; we had more reasons to come back," he said.
"It was important to keep both manufacturers happy and do everything right by own business partners.
"Existing Hyundai clientele already drop their cars off here for services."
Mr Turner said the service department was massive, and an important part of looking after their customers.
"Hyundai offers lifetime servicing," he said. "We have a new service manager and some good systems in place."
Mr Turner said re-merging the businesses just made sense.
"We were down in sales last year, but since December we've had good, steady growth," he said.
