Dont know what to make of that as Mitsu is planning some high profile launches and looks like they want to increase their presence in India. Lathangi is quite new so am quite confused about it. Anyways I go with the rule that accept only 25% of what you hear.

I went to Lathangi yesterday to query on the Cedia. The showroom is undergoing renovation and most of the staff were also missing. I could see only 2 vehicles on display and the Pajero which was on display was also missing. The Sales Exec told me that HM has gone slow on production and the waiting period is 6-8 weeks. Only 2 colors are readily available Cedia Sports - Aussie Yellow and Cedia Sprint - Grey.
So looks like Lathangi is ready for a handover or who knows Mitsu may probably be opening up their first showroom in our very own Bengalooru.

I heard this too at service station (SM/India Garage) last week, but it is probably not the case (hope so as well) ?

From t-bhp reviews, I have learned that lathangi was better at A.S.S. as compared to Southern Motors. Now if Lathangi is going down and we are left with on SM guys to service all the vehicles, it not gonna be a good news for anyone. I really really hope Mitsubishi comes to India soon.

Sometime soon I am planning to take out a cedia from Lathangi (if other cars in the race fare lower ). I will also keep an ear open and also try to get some information from the salesperson.

I spoke to a manager in Lathangi today. They are starting Ford dealership in existing facility and moving out Mitsubishi dealership to somewhere in Bannerghatta road. He didn't reveal where exactly it is going to be.

Hi Guys, I fell a sort of slight shaking at the back when braking at very very low speeds, like when parking. This happens whenever I am backing up into my parking space in the basement and press the brakes. Is this normal?

I haven't experienced that in my car yet. but whenever I am backing up into my parking lot at a very slow speed, the car tends to stall. Of course this only happens in reverse gear.

Thanks for your comments.
I paid exactly 10 lacs for the car. That is almost 39K discount on its on road price. In addition to that I got car cover, iPod jack, rubber mats and chrome inner door pads.

Even I feel the car is appropriately priced. BTW, May issue of ACI mentions that there is 40K discount going on on Cedia, including the discount on loan (whatever that means..).

Joy, The cable has to be fitted on the back side of the audio system. So it requires the control panel in dash to be opened. The cable comes till the glove box, so I keep iPod in glove box while playing it in the car.
