Default Manipal Motors, Bangalore closed - any suggestion for alternative

After moving to Bangalore last year. I was getting my car serviced by Manipal Motors of Airport Road(near Leela). And today morning when I called them up to my surprise found Manipal Motors has closed both dealership and service in Bangalore all together.

Any suggestion for a reliable service station near Indiranagar off ( Airpor Road).

Thanks in advance,

What car do you have ?

Closest : Prerana Motors in OMR, near Tin Factory. All vehicles serviced here. It is near big bazar / shell well before the KR puram bridge

Next Option :
Concorde Motors Dairy circle (cars only, no SUV's).

Prerana Motors & Concorde Motors on Hosur Rd, near Kudlu gate. All vehicles serviced here.

I have Indica DLX (2006).

Looks like Prerana is closest one, is this a good one ?

I have very limited knowledge for things under the hood.

Yes, the Prerana near Big Bazaar is the nearest one for you.

Btw, there is a new TATA showroom/service center coming up in the ITPL road. I think its called KHT motors or something. Interiors are being done and should be up in a month or so, I believe.

Did you actually go to the dealership to see whether they have closed the workshop.? The reason is, last time, when I went for service ( I went without taking an appointment, ) they actually took my car for service ( but told me that they have stopped taking appointments but will service the cars who come as and when. Hence, they might be on the way to close down but might still do service for some more time (?) till all their mechanics were gone

When I went for some minor work there, could see the mechanics and technicians busy collecting various "training completed" certificates.

Default KHT Motors

KHT motors would be opening up their service center shortly. It is a hugh facility (at least appears to be from the outside) just opposite to Graphite India, next to Acme Encore/SJR Brooklyn on ITPL main road. I hope they turn out to be good as it would be a blessing for Safari owners like me who stay in the Whitefield area. It would save me the trouble of going all the way to Concorde on Hosur Road. However, I would wait till they prove their worth as a good A.S.S.

KHT motors have indeed started a Tata and Fiat Service Center on Graphite India Road, near SJR Brooklyn. I have got my Tata Indica V2 serviced recently and they have done a good job. Most of the staff there is from Manipal Motors, so thats a plus for them in terms of experience.

The staff is courteous and more than willing to spend the extra bit of time to solve any problems. This may be probably because they have just started and would like to build a sizeable customer base. Their service center no is 9035002286

This forum hasn't seen any new updates about KHT service centre. If any of you have used the facility recently, please provide feedback, which would help the fellow BHPians.
Servicing a TATA car has becme a real pain from the time Manipal motors closed shop and their service was 100 times better than Prerana in OMR. I tried some near by local garages like Sejal motors, but they are only good for small time repair jobs and not for any major works or any diagnostics, as they rely more on trial and error than a ECU check through a computer, which is not confidence inspiring.
