Default Whose sticker is this- "caring for you... always"

Suddenly one day I found a sticker on back of my car that said -
"caring for you always". Mine is a Honda city.

I thought may be the dealer has put it on.
Then I saw the same sticker on the back of a Hyundai.
Then I saw the same sticker on the back of a Ford.
If other cars also has the same sticker, then it is not a sticker from the dealer.

Whose sticker is it any way?

Now I start getting doubt about whether it is from a religious group or something whose tag line is publicized first and then after creating suspense they are going to launch the brand ?

Advaith Hyundai use that slogan. There are some other dealerships(like Magnum Honda and earlier Cauvery Ford and Garuda GM) who might be using the same sticker because they are all part of the same group.

it is hyundai only. chances are other brands are owned by the same group so they might be sticking here and there. it was started by hyundai when they launched the sonata in 2001.

If a dealer is going around sticking stickers on random cars, I am sorry to say this, but this is height of desperation.

Guys I was getting a numberplate stickered for my bike in some bylane where a guy came and placed an order for 500 of these ("Caring for you always").

I doubt the dealer is going around sticking them on random cars as there is no direct link to the dealership/company name etc.

Yes this is true.Advaith hyundai, magnum honda and Garuda Maruti all are of the same group.

Previously they had the Ford dealership known as Cauvery ford and the GM dealership known as Garuda.But now the Cauvery Ford has changed to Magnum honda and Garuda GM has changed to Garuda Maruti.

So you can see this stickers in five brands of vehicles in Bangalore.

Why do people allow these crappy dealer stickers on their vehicles?

Does anybody like these dealer stickers? I cant stand the sight of them at all even on others vehicles!

My vehicles has been sticker-free since last 5 years. I make it a point to mention the No-Sticker policy to service centers wherever I give it for service. Inspite of that, there has been a few instances wherein I've asked the service centers who has stuck their stickers without my permission to remove their stickers they've neatly obliged.

Default Re: Whose sticker is this- "caring for you... always"

Yes, When I bought my Ford Fiesta recently, I spotted a guy scurrying away to the rear windshield of the car to stick the "Caring...." sticker. Got him to stick it on the bumper instead.

I was a little surprised to see that the same sticker was on my Santro as well. Figured out that (as indicated rightly by Stable_rock), Advaith Hyundai, Maruti Garuda, Cauvery Ford, Magnum Honda are all of the same group.

NagaSid
