I have been going to SM for the past 8 odd years and the only way to get the work out of them is to be after them. I try and take half day off from office and park myself at the workshop and ensure the work gets done. It takes a little bit of effort but atleast I dont have to make repeat trips for some work that might have been overlooked.

Default Lathangi Ford - Bangalore

I got an sms about the new service facility?
My friend has a Cedia and he said that they did a fair job when it used to be a HM dealership.
Any experience ?Help please.

It was pretty damn good for Mitsubishis. No idea if the folks are the same in the ford dealership.

Hi,
Yep Lathangi has closed their operations with Mitsubishi Motors.

I took a test drive of the CEDIA on Saturday last week, the Sales Rep from Southern Motors was telling that a new Mitsubishi dealership is expected to open in JP Nagar in next 1 month. So waiting for further developments before i decide to take the plunge.

Cheers

Sooner the better. They have 2 new launches lined up for this year itself.
Only thing lacking for Mitsubishi in India is their Sales and Service.
I hope they find some real nice guys for their new dealership.

By the way why did Southern Motors disclose about the new dealership. That can only delay their business. Cant believe these guys.

I think Southern Motors is trying to instill confidence in customers on the A**. The fact of having only 1 dealership in Bangalore is only helping them to sell CEDIA to customers who believe in the product (especially for those who have done extensive reasearch on Team-bhp). It is not helping them attract new customers, hence they are open on the 2nd dealership opening in South Bangalore.

Anyways, i will wait and watch on HM and Mitsu's strategy before taking the plunge. Fact of having only 1 dealer doing Sales and Support deos not make me comfortable to invest 10L.

Cheers

Just to let you know that a new HM-Mitsubishi service centre is around the corner in Bangalore. Probably another 2 months away. Lathangi customers will also be happy to know that the old service mechanics from Lathangi will be moving to this new service centre.

Just saw this message. Happy to heat this.
I heard it is somewhere near Jayanagar.
Looks like HM-Mitsubishi is getting ready for their new launches.
