FWIW the number on their Lotus site goes to voicemail - Since the address is still Hopewell I'm guessing they didn't update the address or number since they officially moved. Call the Baker Jeep number and they'll answer right away.

I had an issue last week and called and they took me right in so Ian could check it.

Would you mind telling us which 2 shops failed? If you don't want this public, you could PM me.

Thanks.

2011 chrome orange When the S&S Lotus dealership was purchased by Baker Chrysler Jeep, they also bought a building just down the street from their Jeep dealership on Rt 206 (if I remember right, it was the old Taylor Rental Center).

I heard that the (Taylor Rental Center) building was supposed to be rebuilt and turned into a stand alone Lotus Dealership building. However, the last time I drove by, the back lot was filled with brand new Jeeps. I didn't see any progress on the building.

Dylan That's what I thought, and I went there (Princeton) when they initially took over from S&S. Recently visited their website, and on the home page there's a "New Location" button, and when you click it, it shows the Broad Street location on a map. When you go to the "Contact Us" tab, it shows this:

Victory Lotus

49 East Broad Street
Hopewell, NJ 08525

Showroom (609) 902-2240

njboy There is a blue Evora sitting in the old S&S show room. Maybe there is a casual business relationship between them?

Dylan Did they take over the old S&S place in Hopewell? That now seems to be their address.

cornbeef Took it there for my second service on the Evora; no problems and they were great

lotus69f2 Warranty issue taken care of with no problems.
11-08-2014 03:23 PM
WERM I took mine in on Friday for the oil line recall and an oil change. No problems with the place and the staff were fine. Ian was still there and took care of everything.

...But waiting in a Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep waiting area is a far cry from walking around and checking out the classics at the old place.
11-07-2014 01:09 PM
Mswe Thanks to all for the replies. I made my appointment for Tuesday at Baker.
11-06-2014 06:39 PM
O LEE O Had the oil line recall done on my Elise the second day they were open for Lotus business. Ian is doing his thing just in different digs. Just miss Ed and Nichole as well!

2011 chrome orange I went there a few weeks ago and Ian worked on my car. The service counter guys were great to deal with and sound like real car guys.

My warranty is up, but I was waiting on a dash/airbag replacement (was on backorder) from Sports and Specialist from when I was still in the warranty period and before they closed. Ian made a call to Dave Simkin and Lotus is still honoring the warranty work needed. So Baker/Victory is supposed to order the parts again although Ian advised they are still on backorder.

I doubt the parts will come in before I put car away for the winter in a few weeks.
