I have come across Kava automobiles through this invaluable thread.My friends palio desperately needed left side headlamp and rear back light.I have ordered both and send money through NEFT to their current account.The total cost quoted was rs 4600 for a headlamp assembly and rs 2600 for a backlight assembly.I was promised that above would be shipped next day.

Today I received both the headlamps and the backlight safely packaged .The same has been installed and car is back home after 20 days of unwarranted stay at the tata workshop.I am really surprised and happy at the prompt service of the kava automobiles and recommend other palio owners to get in touch with them if needed .
Moreover i am thinking of ordering a pair headlamps for my punto as the originals need replacement .

Hi All,

I spoke briefly to Mr. Vijay Sheth to enquire on availability and pricing of alloy wheels for Palio Stile 1.1 SLX - 2007 make. 98 PCD and 13 inches tyres. He said he'll have to check if available. In the meantime, I just sent an email to the two IDs listed on the first post on this thread but got email delivery failure notice from kavaauto@yahoo.com

Looks like yahoo email Id is no longer valid. I'm hoping to receive a response from the first email Id, will keep posted. If someone local in Mumbai can help, that will be great!

Thanks!

Friend had checked around 3 months ago. He had 14 inch rims not 13. We ended up procuring second hand rims from CST market in Kurla and repainting them.

Did a quick run to Kava Auto last evening. Things purchased -

- LHS Chrome strip for rear bumper

- Pair of windscreen wipers

50% cost saving (as opposed to showroom) assured.

Anyone has any latest update on Kava? I wanted to place an order for some parts and would like to know any recent experiences before that. Do they also have a COD option?

Avoid Kava like Plague. I was sold a brand new alternator by them. It failed in 5000KMs, when opened it had a rusted armature inside. it was clearly a refurbished unit sold to me as a brand new unit at MRP.

There are TONS of stories online where Kava has sold refurbished and repainted alloys with bends as brand new alloys to unsuspected people directly to customers and with corporate partnerships with unscrupulous personnel.

Thanks for this headsup !!

Came to this thread 3 years later looking to see if I can pick up a Steering Rack (18K) for my Palio from Kava (who clearly say its refurbished)

Anyone know any alternatives to Kava ?

You can check with my mechanic Rajesh, he has a few contacts with the gujri folks and probably can source you a used rack in decent nick.

Actually, he's my mechanic too

Maybe he thinks I'm some loaded party so he stuck to his suggestion of only taking OEM route. When I pressed him for other/gujri routes to solve my woes, he said good/reliable pieces aren't available for the rack in most cases and its best to get a brand new one.
