Obviously this scheme is not meant when your doing a service at the company A.S.S. Its essentially to promote the independent garage.

I am getting my car serviced at one of the oldest and one of the most reputed garage in Hyderabad " Mazda Motors" who's son is known more for his page 3 reputation than his skills in the garage

Most of the TBHPian's in Hyd, get it done here and best thing they do all lubricant change right in front of you. I can vouch them as one of the best in town.

I have also shifted to TATA AIG , but as the car is under warranty, I wont have much benefit out of it. And sad thing is , after I received the documents I was shocked to see that they don't have either of fortune and Mody ford service centres listed in their booklet. Thinking of cancelling it for a while now.
As mentioned above, apart from Mazda and Autofin, I think there are a couple more in Hyd. Check the booklet that you received with the policy. Mazda Motors are superb, you should give them a try !


I opted for Tata AIG 2 years ago due to their attractive scheme and friendly insurance pay-off policy

Their scheme works something like this, i am unable to recall the actual percentages right now but is something like below. I need to check the service booklet that i received along with insurance policy :-

1st Service : Free Labour Cost, 10% discount on Spares, 25% off on interior cleaning, Polishing etc

2nd Service : 50% off on Labour Cost, 10% discount on spares, 25% off on interior cleaning, Polishing etc

3rd Service : 30% off on Labour Cost,10% discount on spares, 25% off on interior cleaning, Polishing etc

4th Service : Something like above

2 Body Washes FREE every year
Free Alignment and Balance ONCE in a year
If you avail 3 Services, Interior Cleaning is FREE

Since I have a good rapport with them. I got the wheel alignment, balance and cleaning in my first service itself

A small tribute to my lovely companion who has shared the joys and sorrows with me. The fun and driving pleasure it provided me was the best in my life.

Therefore, sharing a few pictures of my red beast from all angles in its full glory.

All these pictures are 6 months or less old.

I had a similar offer which was given at Ambal Auto, Coimby if we renewd our insurance through them. But the free service had to be done there only

Thanks Prem. It indeed is a bang for the bucks you pay.

I can safely call it a performance machine for the "poorer class"

Nice report!
The Accent CRDi, regular as well as Viva according to me is the most underrated car of the past decade. Once you own it you never want to let go of it! Will be putting up a long term report of my beloved Accent soon.
Cheers!
