Default Friendly Neighborhood Garage (FNG) - Imtiaz & Ayub (New Delhi)

Work handled:
  • Servicing and repair of car engines, suspensions, brakes etc.
What I like:
  • Good, clean work
  • Knows how different automobile systems work
  • Familiar with common rail diesel engine work
  • Familiar with Skodas, Fords, high-end cars like CR-Vs, Accords, Toyotas, even Mercs. Handles such cars regularly
  • Puts is a lot of effort to diagnose minor noises and problems. Not a "Don't repair it, just change it" kind of mechanic
  • Friendly attitude
  • Is well equipped with basic tools
What I don't like:
  • No vehicle lift
  • No covered space to work in. Leaving the car overnight there if required is considered pretty safe, though I have not had occasion to do so
Pricing:
  • Usual FNG pricing.
Speciality / USP:
  • Confident about most cars, Indian or imported.

SS-Traveller - thank you for sharing this.

Since my trusted mechanic is out of town for a month, I have taken an appt with Imtiaz for tomorrow morning to get some work done on my manza QJD. My car is in warranty so the work to be done is related to areas which are either not addressed by Tata's or are not being economically addressed by them. All out of warranty tasks. Below is what I plan to get done. My car is at 48k km's.

1. Get the front suspension checked, replace strut rubber mounts + anti roll bar rubber bushes
2. Intercooler, cat con & EGR valve cleaned (never did these so far)
3. Check all turbo/ intercooler hoses, tighten the connections to eliminate any leaks. Check turbo exhaust, air & oil inlets and outlets
4. Lubricate gear shifting cables
5. Get minor dashboard rattle fixed from under the steering area
6. Get brake pads checked/ cleaned (car is on original brake pads)

Will do an alignment/ balancing at a tyre shop near my home after the above work is done.

Spoke to Imtiaz yesterday and I think the most complex tasks in the above are EGR valve cleaning & turbo inlets and outlets checking. He seemed confident about the work. I am going to give it a try and see how it goes. Will post my experience after the work is done. If all goes well (which I think it will), it will give me an option of a reliable FNG in addition to my trusted mechanic I usually go to.

SS-Traveller - Is there anything you would want me to know related to the work above and Imtiaz before I go tomorrow? Thanks in advance.

I have told him that I have been referred by a person who used to own Accent CRDi and now a white Scorpio 4X4 (hope you won't mind me referring you). I think he could relate. Sorry did not know your name.

No problems about referring about me - just tell him Daktarsaab ne bheja hai - that would be good enough! No special inputs for the work to be done. Just let us know back here on this thread, how well/poorly he did your work.

Went to Imtiaz yesterday to get the above work done. I completely agree with everything mentioned by SS-T in the first post. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, competant mechanic. I'll not repeat what's mentioned in first post, so only this to add:

1. I felt his pricing to be even lower than a normal FNG. He spent almost 8 hours on my car and asked for an amount which I felt was 70% of what he should have asked. I happily paid him more than what he asked for.

2. He did not have any proper assistant to work with him. He hired a guy in the morning itself to work with him. The assistant (though expert) was working on other cars as well during the day. Now due to that I was with him till 7:00 pm despite of the fact that I reached at 09:30 am. Even after spending full day, I could get only the following done. Rest of the work is pending/ postponed. Well part of the reason why it took time was EGR valve cleaning and clean work Imtiaz targets to do, but I think we could have easily saved 2-3 hours if he had 2-3 assistants to help him.
  • Intercooler & EGR valve cleaning, check all turbo/ intercooler hoses, tighten the connections
  • Lubricate anti roll bar rubber bushes
I would highly recommend Imtiaz for the quality of his work and knowledge.

Going to Imtiaz on Monday to get our santro's suspension overhauled. Will post the feedback after the work.

Daktarsaab - do you have any inputs on the work mentioned in post below? Also, is Imtiaz usually able to source good quality spares or you recommend to buy myself before visiting him. Thanks in advance.

Can anyone kindly recommend a good FNG in Faridabad, as close to Mathura Road as possible. Since our office is on Mathura Road, my colleagues and I are looking for a reliable mechanic / workshop, where we can drop the car for being attended to on an office day. Else, at times, this activity usually gobble up a complete off day during the weekend, especially in case of older vehicles

Hi Amit,

You raised the question for DR, but Ghai motor in malviya nagar is one of the place to look for. but he will provide some Hyundai genuine parts but not all.

Suggest you let him open & check, then buy spares / replacements accordingly.

Even I recommend the place, in case you didn't notice! Here it is (Metro Spares & Ghai Motors (Savitri Nagar, New Delhi)).

There's another guy called Rajender in the same Lane. Imtiaz was trained by Rajender. This guy has been servicing our cars for the last 15 years Maruti 800 to Ambassador to Tata's to Skoda.

If he doesn't know something he will not make a guinea pig of your car and will refuse outright to work.

Name : Rajender
Mobile : 9810344034, 9213439551

you can give him my reference and tell him that Gaurav from Mandakini has referred him.

Cheers.
