Lathangi is not part of the same group!! I have said this over and over again on this forum!!

Cauvery Ford(now Magnum Honda), Advaith Hyundai and Garuda(earlier GM and now MAruti) are part of the same group.

Arya Honda has shifted to the place where Shaman Ford had their showroom. So, they've not given up or lost their dealership. Shaman Ford have shifted to their Fiat / Tata showroom next door. So, does this mean Shaman have dumped Fiat / Tata?

I was wrong. Pashankar has stopped Mitsubishi dealership & have moved to Skoda dealership named as 'Europa Auto'. I had seen this change last week but waited for official confirmation, local daily 'Sakal' features advt. for new Skoda dealership.
So, Pune city now has three Skoda dealerships but continues to wait for another Honda dealership.

Default Second Honda dealer in pune - Kothari

Today's edition of 'Pune Mirror' carries advertisement seeking Sales & Service personnel from Kothari for Honda cars. So, we should expect second Honda dealer in pune city soon.

Thats wierd, coz Lakeview Honda in Hubli is doing pretty well and have loads of cars on display.

The owner is a family friend and he seems very happy with the way things are going.

So bad reputation in their case is out of question and so is possibility of making losses with brand like Honda. Considering two other big dealerships also closing down, there has to be something at Honda's end which is turning away good dealers from them. Surprising though!
Hey isn't Deccan Honda also owned by Bhandari ? I remember when I purchased my Honda City and the corporate discount was adjusted I got a cheque from Bhandari Cars.

I think Deccan Honda is owned by Bafnas, not Bhandaris

Exclamation New Honda Dealer in Pune - Crystal Honda

Finally the prayers of all the pune Honda owners have been answered because there is a new Honda dealership in Pune "Crystal Honda". They are located at Bavdhan about 2 kms from Chandni chowk and this is run by Kothari auto. They have sales/spares/service support as well as Auto terrace (for preowned Honda cars). I have not been there so I don't know how good/bad they are as compared to Deccan Honda but atleat we have another alternative now.

No its not at the old Grand Honda location, its between Mahindra FirstChoice and DSK Toyota on that stretch of the highway.

Hmm is Kothari Autolink related to Kothari Hyundai then? Did you got the above from the hondacarindia.com site, because the site has a SLIGHTLY different description, which completely excludes any mention of Kothari!
Crystal Honda, Pune
S. Number 268,Mantri Alpine,Katraj Dehu Road Bypass,Near Chandni Chowk,Bavdhan,Pune 21
Pune
Email : sales@crystalhonda.com
Phone : 020-67908222, 67908200 /020-67908000

Hopefully they don't go the way of Grand Honda, thereby killing any chance of me upgrading to a Honda... There is a bit of a media blitz from Crystal Honda on the local FM stations though!
