    Hi there.

    You chose Garodia over Austin. What have you heard and/or experienced about Austin's new ASS?

    @prabhjot,There is nothing wrong with AUSTIN.I have visited AUSTIN twice and my experience was quite good there,they are a pretty sincere lot.But I chose GARODIA as
    1) the technicians there are more experienced lot and this was a timing chain replacement job
    2)ready availability of all the spares(though I did not make any query at AUSTIN).
    3)ANISH(ws supervisor),I know him since 2011(TATA-FIAT days at now defunct RD MOTORS),he is a gentleman with an always smiling face & JAYANTA(the ss).
    4)Recently GARODIA doing the jobs really really fast.
    For any normal job(say,regular service,brake pad/disc/shoe replacement etc. etc.)I will choose AUSTIN ws as it is superbly located on AJC BOSE ROAD and more than 10km nearer.

    These are some kinds of road & vehicles my GP has to negotiate whenever I go to my village.There is little or no administration to stop these practices.

    62000 km gone.After replacing the timing chain at 58000 km the pick up & smoothness has reached a new level from @ 60,000 km.
    Due to excessive rain this year in this part of the country most of the roads has become very bad.But the 62000 km old shocker of my GP is handing these without a question asked:finger:.
