Default Friendly Neighbourhood Garage - SMK Car Works (Hosa Road, Bangalore)

Services offered:
  • End to End servicing for all cars
What I like:
  • A very humble, honest and down to earth mechanic. Very straight forward.
  • He is the ONLY mechanic I've come across in Bangalore who actually does work upto my standards; which are quite high.
  • He is an expert on Fiat cars (Palios and Puntos) but he works on all other brand cars as well.
What I don't like:
  • He does not stock parts. The best way is to visit him once, get the car checked and later drop off the car for service. He can source the parts if identified earlier.
  • The garage is not exactly what you'd call "clean". Empty boxes lying around, bit dusty, etc. Might turn off few people.

Pricing: I found his charges to be reasonable. Sometimes I feel its a bit high, however his quality of work would justify the cost. I drive 20KMs one way to come to this garage for all my work.

Speciality / USP: He is an expert in fixing Fiats, Palios in particular. He has worked on refurbishing whole engines and does a good job.

The CV Boots on my Cedia were bust and I had to replace them ASAP. I got new boots at Car Automobiles paying 900 for the pair (!!!). WHen Rajesh removed the driveshaft, none of them fit. He then took the old boots and came back an hour later with a selection of boots that might work. Out of these, two worked. and I was on my way back.

I was charged 400rs for the two boots 150 for grease and 800 for labour. He worked on my car for 5 hours straight, he deserves to be paid that much in labour. His honestly about the price of car parts is also something I really appreciate.
