We had a great thread a couple of years ago about what Mahindra should do regarding their dealer network. One of our members suggested that if Mahindra was smart they would only offer their franchise to single point, first generation dealers who had "all of their eggs in one basket."

If I were responsible for trying to save Mitsubishi I'd do the same thing - get the franchise in the hands of an on-site Dealer Principal whose prosperity is tied to the success of the dealership.

A hard working Dealer with talent and drive can often overcome the challenges associated with selling a weak brand with limited product offerings.
