So that's why people buy Skodas: for the free gear box!

I am standing at the service center waiting for the delivery of car, and i get a call form customer relationship lady, "Sir aapne apni car service ke liye di thi, ab wo kaisee chal rahi hai," and I walked to that lady while talking on phone and said face to face but on phone "gaadi milte hi bata dunga, tab tak to aap hi batayenge"

I don't understand why the feedback is sought immediately the next day or just after one or two days. Back when I gave my M800 for servicing, the lady used to call me up the following week to check how the car was running. Not everyone uses the car every day.

Thats because they only want to hear a positive report of the repairs/service carried out. Their confidence level are so low that they are sure that the problems might resurface soon and your feedback could spoil there record sheet.

God bless.....

My father - What's so spl. about the car, in comparision to the Dzire?
Salesman - Sir, this car is 'having' Kappa engine, the Swift and Dzire have K-series engine!!

Venue: Kashyap Vehicle Works, Noida
Subject: VW Polo TD
Date: 24th April 2010

My friend and I had just returned from the TD and were talking to the sales rep when a male duo (Guy1 and Guy 2) joined us and started inquiring the sales rep about The New Polo.

All of a sudden Guy 1 opened the door of the new Beetle and the following exhange happened:

Guy 1: ye Bentley kitne ki hai? (How much does this Bentley cost?)
Me, My Friend and Sales Rep:
Sales Rep: Sir, this is Beetle, not Bentley.
Guy 1: Haan Haan, ek hi baat hai (It's one and the same thing)

Guy 1 then went on to check out the Polo.

Guy 1: Gaadi achhi hai but andar se hep nahi hai; kal main Chevrolet gaya tha, unki JAZZ andar se mast dikhti hai (The car looks good but the interiors are not trendy; I had been to Chevrolet yesterday and their JAZZ had cool interiors).
Me, My Friend and Sales Rep:

Just then a pantry boy walked up and showed all of us to a round table where tea was served. We started discussing Swift vs Punto vs Polo, Fortuner vs Innova, new generation diesel engines etc.

Guy 1 (pointing towards me): aap caaron ke baare mein kaafi jaante hai (You know quite a bit about cars)
Sales Rep: He's member of Team-BHP.
Guy 1: Team-BHP...achha wo racing company?(Team-BHP, the racing company?)
Guy 2 to Guy 1: yaar, chup kar ja please (Please keep quiet).

We finished our tea, thanked the sales rep, walked out of the showroom and burst into laughter.

Ajay, its your turn to get surprised
For a brief period, enfield tried to sell a mini-bullet which had a 2 stroke engine. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/post-1...ml#post1171996

My uncle in Mysore used to drive one. I know it was maintained well, drive quality was good but it used to spit smoke like an old railway engine!! He later donated to somebody because no body was ready to buy!!

They made your day, in process of pulling leg of the SP. I feel they were pretending to be Fools in Dealership. Somehow these people have graduated from electronics to cars.

A Hyundai salesman told me that i10 comes with "bigger" tyres because Hyundai's policy is "safety first". I asked him what tyres the i10 comes with, and he had no clue. He just said "normal tyres but big".

At a Tata (Fiat) showroom I enquired at what RPM the peak torque is delivered in the Punto, and the reply was "There are no such problems, no need to worry".
