Thanks for all the clarifications and recommendations on Ignite, gentlemen.

Our car is going to Ignite for its next service. In fact, were it not for the distance, I would have been a regular at Ignite since long ago. According to Google Maps, the main garage is 22 km away from my place, and the new branch(?) is 16 km away.

Anyway, I think the place is definitely worth it. I had contacted Raghav once through e-mail regarding a problem with my previous car (which I sold off later). He was kind enough to reply to my query, and even went out of his way to ask someone from an authorised workshop for information regarding the same. All this for someone who didn't even take the car to his garage!

It shows his passion, professionalism and helpful attitude to even non-customers. That's the kind of spirit that turns folks into fans of a garage. So yes, distance be forgotten, our car deserves to get treated at Raghav's Ignite next!

I have just written a mail to Ignite garage ( hopefully would be read by Raghav ) and asked for brake upgrade options for my Fiesta 1.6S, hoping to fix up an appointment in the coming week to get the regular servicing and brake upgrade done!

Are both the garages - Palavakkam and the one further down ECR equally equipped to carry out brake related works? Any pointers on this would be helpful.

Hi Folks
Do these guys do VW services (once every 15K Kms). I am losing trust on the VW workshops and also my beast will go thru its 5th service in December.

Also are there any other workshops which handle yearly services for VW Ventos.

Thanks!

Though I am not using Ignite for regular maintenance (during the period vehicle is in the warranty period), I have serviced my previous car couple of times and also fitted Dieseltronics in my current car at Ignite. My experience so far is very good.

Routine annual service is so, err... routine (oil change, fluid levels, lubrication and so on), that it can probably be done by any garage for almost any vehicle.

Going further would depend on parts availability. Do let us know if you go to Ignite: my Polo might be getting its last in-warranty dealer service in Feb 2016.

I will.
BTW the VW service guys reset the KMS for next service and days (the stuff from buttons you can see next to the trip odo in the speedo console). Can this kind of stuff be done?

I'm guessing that independent garages, at least the major ones, must have access to the remote diagnostic features of the cars they service.

Easy peasy Lemon squeezy!
Just a service reminder reset via the On-board diagnostics scanner tool.

Took my Alto K10 this weekend to Ignite. I had driven down from Delhi to Chennai and a servicing was overdue. Raghav did a good job of pin-pointing the problems and offered his advice on what needed replacement or what could last few more thousand kilometers. Some minor things like disconnecting an annoying reversing horn were overlooked, but the rest of the service was impeccable and the car feels perfect. The bill was lesser than I expected, so that's a bonus.

For some reason, I forgot to update my service experience. It was very very good.
Raghav spent time to understand the car and my complaints and the car ran well . It was a tragedy to lose the car to the floods after some time.

After I picked up my Duster, I had a whizzing sound during acceleration in my highway drive. When I stopped for a cup of coffee near Tindivanam, I bumped into the very man at the hotel. He quickly checked the car and certified it fine which gave me lot of piece of mind to continue the trip.
Recently I had recommended my colleague to service his Vento and he is pretty happy with the service done and also the costs.
Except for the location (for most people of Greater Chennai), IGnite is an excellent garage and provides very good service.

Hi all, had gone to Ignite for service and as usual it was a fabulous experience.

Just realised Varun is not with Ignite anymore. So please be aware and to talk to Raghav or Affu directly to get your appointments if you want Ignite and Raghav to service. Sad Varun has moved away but good to see Ignite still being the best.

As my Fabia 1.6 has completed the extended warranty period, wanted to try an independent garage for the routine service.
After reading the reviews decided on ignite (also closer to where I live).
Mr,Raghav attended the vessel, took it for a test drive . The ghost ABS lamp luckily came on during the test drive (It has been intermittent for a while now).
Issue traced to Rear LHS weel sensor. Raghav sent me a whatsapp showing the error code and duly followed with a quote.
All went well , I should say. Have to mention here that he was straight forward in his points. Mentioned that gearbox mounting is weak. After inspection again messaged me that it willl last for some time more and hence no need to worry about the same now.
Highly recommended.
