Default Ford opens new showroom at Udupi, Karnataka

Good news for residents for Udupi and surrounding areas. Cauvery Ford has opened a new showroom at Udupi, located on NH-66. The service section starts operating from 1st May 2016.

Now we have to travel 45 km just to get the car serviced. That is like paying Rs.500 for free service. Hopefully this will be a full-fledged service centre that does not have to depend on Mangalore for some things.

Doesn't look like there is bodyshop here though.

Wow, what a relief for Ford owners in Udupi district. Udupi despite being such a major district, was always neglected by car makers because it is only 60kms from Mangalore. When my F-I-L owned Fiesta, getting it serviced was such a pain. Now he has a Honda City, same pain.

At least now I hope Honda and Renault will follow suit.

That Endeavour is calling out to you Samurai.

Mumbai is seeing closing of dealerships for some reason.

Oh no, I won't be buying any 7 seater SUV. The only Ford I might consider is the new Figo AT to replace my wife's i10 AT. No solid plans on that right now.

Oh, when did this happen? I have driven on that road last month, how did I miss it...

That leaves only Renault then.

You can't easily miss it. Perhaps you need to fix an appointment with me

Its on the right side when driving north.

Even you are in Mangalore. Trouble is I keep my eyes on the road all the time, so I miss things of the side. Hope my F-I-L is aware of the new place for servicing his City.

I drove up and down that road yesterday and did not see it. Maybe because of the highway work or because of its location, it's invisible to the highway driver.

Actually Ford is similarly located - blink and you will miss it.

OT: Nexa is apparently on the lookout for a location in Udupi or Manipal.
