Thumbs up Fleecing by SUNDARAM Motors-Chennai

Hai Friends

I'm a proud & happy to have a fine OPEL SAIL 1.6 have clocked 32K km so far.Had some hard staring problem & low power, took it to the dealer M/s Sundaram Motors stating the problem.

Th car was due for 5000 hrs service & was carried out. They informed the fuel pump was weak & has to be renewedalong with complete hose system costing about Rs.16,000+.

Even then I reasoned the pump cannot fail so earlier but was told they have checked it. I was reluctant & denied to do it & took delivery.

I tracked a Opel Service Manual from the net & noted the BOSCH pump was just a transfer pump. Located the petrol tank opening below the rear seat & was surprised to note SUNDARAM Motors have not even looked at the pump. Found the hoses damaged thus drawing air into the system, changed it & the car is Good now.

An Authorized Dealer from GM fleecing the customer for parts renewal even without caring to look the fault amounts to incompetency of the firm or blatant cheating.

Wish we all are Saved from Money spinners like this Dealer & save our passion for good Cars.

BEWARE -Ask complete details if they report a parts renewal -to see is believing let's do that.
