Default Lube Shop : Kaikkara Autos (Trivandrum)

What have i bought
Engine oil and most recently car wax.

I have been buying engine oils from this shop for close to 5 years now. What I like are the reasonable price and the courteous service. Also they don't try to ram stuff down your throat. if they don't have stuff they tell it. Will suggest alternatives but don't pressure you to buy it.

Directions
As you go from Technopark, Kazakootam to Trivandrum city on NH47 this shop is on your left just before the HDFC ATM at Pongumoodu.

Drive on!!

I too use the same shop for oil. Have bought synthetic oil for Santro and now Mobil for Safari.

Would surely suggest this shop.

Do you have the name/phone number of the shop at killipalam? I was looking for Mobil synthetic 5W30, but it seems Kaikkara Autos at Pongumoodu doesn't stock this.

The shop at killipallam has hiked the rates, there is a thampy auto garage near chakka, on the bypass just after the skoda joint, 200 clicks form there, on the left, they have a board on the road. They have the oil you looking for for 900 bucks a liter, negotiate further, give my reference.(AP Lancer 7777 reg number). Might get a bit of discount, you never know.
