Products sold:
  • Complete range of automotive spare-parts. Engine, drivetrain, suspension, brakes, interiors etc. for all Indian cars. Also sells Mobil 1 synthetic oils.
What I like:
  • In the business since 1958. Honest management & great reputation. Simple people to deal with. Entirely family-run enterprise.
  • Original parts guaranteed.
  • Can even get you rare-to-find spares for discontinued models (say for a Contessa, Fiat Uno etc).
  • Fixed pricing policy.
What I don't like:
  • Doesn't stock spares for imported cars. Including the CBU Camry, Mercs & BMWs.
Pricing: Either cheaper, or on par with, other spare part shops.

Speciality / USP: None in particular. An honest spare parts store, thats all.

What I have bought from him: Several components for my cars over the years.

Yes they are I think one of the rare stores in town who stock almost all parts for Fiat Palio Petrols.
I bought all badges, sun visors , and many non-so important , but difficult/impossible to find fiat palio spares.

I agree to that point, they have any spare part you want!. If they do not have a stock they will arrange for the same!
But they sometimes try to sell you non genuine stuff claiming it is genuine, which I did not appreciate. may be they thought i was a newbie!

Thanks for the info. I'm sure it'll be of help to many of us. Also, i am on the lookout for a good third-party garage for Merc and Skoda. Any help on this will be great.

My father has been visiting them since the 60s and I have been doing the same since 90s. Down-to-earth people and they usually give the best price without any bargaining.

I recommend this shop even to my friends who have no idea about purchasing spares since I know they wont get cheated here.

Good and honest people, but make sure you take a sample of whatever you need. They don't work without them unless it's a fairly common part.

They didn't have head bolts of an OHC VTEC and when they finally ordered them for me, the bolts seemed to be used or kept in the open.

Just this weekend, a friend needed to have her wiper motor assembly replaced on her Palio. It was a LUCAS make and she was quoted a price 30% higher then what she finally bought from the Lucas dealer opposite Shetty motors...


... and this happens 15 days after I wrote my comment in support of them! I think I will downgrade my rating by a notch.

Even though my VTEC is totalled now, I can still recall my numerous trips to their store. Products purchased:

1. Mobil1 4 litre pack (5W50 grade. They even had the 0 grade in stock)
2. Complete Clutch assembly, including Exedy clutch, pressure plates, NSK release bearing, original Honda clutch cable, X-mission oil. Mind you, I was specifically looking for Exedy and only they had it.
3. Radiator Fan of a Taiwan make as they didn't have the original Honda one. Although they flatly refused to give any kind of warranty, it did work without any hassles.

I'd recommend them if you are looking for spares you can't find elsewhere but be prepared to pay a premium. Also, just thought I'd mention this, the X-mission oil they sold me actually turned out to be the power steering oil. I did mention this to them while buying but they showed me the literature on the container where it was mentioned 'gear oil'. It was confirmed when I overhauled the clutch, had to buy the oil separately again. Guess, it meant the gears on the steering rack pinion.

My first experience of buying something over the phone - call : order : pay - and thats it ! No hassles whatsoever !

A 'Kit cover Shift Control' gone bad in my Corsa has made her stay in the workshop over the last 4 weeks. GM had none in stock - even at Halol, Gujrat. I had been searching frantically for that part at every possible shop I knew in pune and none offered any relief/ hopes and one of the shop owners even suggesting me to take a look in Chor-bazaar !

Called up the shop yesterday eve, and the part is delivered in Pune today morning, without any advance payment over the VPP. I am genuinely shocked to get such service. Although I paid a premium for the part, it was expected and I really do not mind it at all !

Verdict : Definitely recommended !

Bro,

Sometimes the part you purchase is the same but the rates keep changing. In this case maybe your friend was passed on a old stock with a lower price or maybe vice versa newer part has a lower price on it. Check it

Vish

No Sir, thats not the case. Both the items were from the same month and year of manufacture.

Come to think of it, I don't remember the last time I went to Shetty Motors. I usually call them - order - pay myself.

My vote for Shetty Motors just got cemented !

Another one in 2 days time with all heavy rains !
I ordered a new AC fan for my Corsa on Saturday morning - the part was delivered yesterday afternoon at my doorstep.
Same procedure : Just call them up, give them the part number, confirm the order, and the part is delivered ! Heck, they even had my address saved with them !

I have recommended Shetty Motors to even Pashankar Auto ( the only authorised GM dealer ) Pune - as most of the parts are not available with GM !

On the other hand, prices are a bit higher than those at the Dealers. But IMO, Lower cost of parts + Long waiting time ( min. of 8 days - which further goes on increasing - It took a whole 20 days for my clutch assembly to arrive at Pune from Halol, Gujrat. ) till the part arrives at dealer is definitely equatable and justifies higher pricing at Shetty Motors.
