HM should discontinue itself from. Mitsubishi should either get serious about the Indian Market or get out. How long can dealers survive selling single digit over priced models every month? They won't even be able to recover operating expenses, let alone capital costs of setting up the A. S. S.

Yes the website is back online. I feel the brand had lots of potential here. There was a Mitsubishi showroom just near my home which got shut down eventually and got replaced by a Tata Motors .

What are you worried about if nothing is broken?

Go to the auto market in your city and search for authorized HM parts supplier (not authorized service center).

If you cannot find it that way, search on JustDial etc.

If you still cannot find spares, some members here can help sourcing parts from Mumbai/ Delhi.

Couple of days ago I spoke to the service guy at Maya motors. He said, Cedia suspension is "temporary" and it is rumored that it is coming back with some modifications! Spare parts - No problem at all. That is what he said.
Again, regarding spare parts for something broken, anyway they were stocking major spares in Dubai and not in India. They were importing parts as and when required and they will do the same even now. For example, my car's steering wheel assembly came from Dubai in 3 weeks time, but it was worth waiting. Not to worry about spares, unless they shut down Maya Motors. Then we have to go to HM for importing these spares.

Smile Re: HM discontinues Cedia & Outlander

Folks: I am a proud owner of CEDIA Sports for the last 4.5 years, having driven the beast for about 90,000 kms. I have no idea to replace and would like to continue given that there is no other car that is comfortable to ride/drive, on all fronts, in this category. However, I am worried about the parts, good service centers, as I hate the one in Bangalore...Any suggestions

As per the law, any and every manufacturer who discontinues a car must stock parts and keep it available till 10 years from the date of discontinue.

So I guess there is no need to worry on the parts but servicing is questionable.

I think the requirement is just that the parts should be available. There is no guarantee on pricing or the procurement delay. In a lot of these cases, I've heard that they need to be imported and hence would involve delays as well as higher expenses. Not sure how true it is but it seems like the more practical approach for these companies instead of stocking the uncommon parts for rare models that may never be used eventually.

No hard feelings, but there is a marked difference between rule and implementation in India. Consider Maruti Suzuki, which is considered as the ultimate in consumer service in India- try hunting for Esteem's parts. You'll be surprised to know that apart from some regular consumables, you won't be able to find many spares. Esteem was discontinued in Dec 2007, so it is very well within the 10 year period. I had to hunt for Esteem's ORVM's for my brother's car. Lastly, we found one from a scrapyard.
I initially thought it to be a region specific issue, but recently came across BHPian RavenAvi's thread, where his dad's esteem had to be sold due to many reasons, one of which was lack of spares.
Already, people are reporting lack of M800 spares, which was discontinued in 2014.
I can't think what owners of HM_mitsubishi have to face for discontinued products.
I think its time our Govt should make a stern law for auto sector which includes rules for issues like spares, lemon cars, etc and implement them.

Regards,
Shashi

Didn't know about this law. But even if it is there, who is going to implement it for the poor Indian consumer?

Recently I went through a harrowing experience just to replace my petrol Logan's accessories drive belt along with the tensioner. When the service centre guys kept me waiting for almost 2 months, finally I shot off one mail to M&M customer care asking how long can I expect M&M to support this vehicle in terms of availability of spares. Needless to say that I didn't receive any written commitment on this aspect from their side. But the Hyderabad Customer Care Manager called me and mentioned that they will provide support for 7 years from the date of sale of the vehicle.

Of course, I must acknowledge that within a few days after that, the part magically surfaced at the service centre.

Talked to the Director (Operations) of a dealer here. Outlander is confirmed for relaunch. As per him both petrol & diesel versions are planned. The company is now finalising what will be the features list etc.

Anyways I am carrying on with my search for a Grand Vitara-AT.

New outlander might be PHEV so that might answer your question.
IMO Petrol vs diesel will not be a differentiator for running cost in near future.
and per same news they plan to launch both petrol and diesel versions.

It will be really interesting if they launch plug-in-hybrid in India.

The difference does not lie in it being petrol or diesel. The last outlander used to give 5-6 kmpl in city. Diesels tend to have better mileage anyway. But if they are bringing in the diesel, then its hopefully going to sell in good numbers. Hopefully they are able to price it slightly lower than the Toyota fortuner. That will really give them decent numbers.
