Default Is the world gonna come to an end?

I am really puzzled. really. really!!!

i had made a call 1 week earlier to concorde manager Mr.Vickram asking him about the CSC change. I was told that my car was listed in the CSC change list immediately ( puzzled as they have already shortlisted my car and binze johns first as we are troubling customers !. i was told to get it replaced as the part was available. The evening service advisor called and told me that he needs to take the car for CSC change and it was planned for saturday. but i never got a call on saturday.

On monday i called the service advisor and reminded him. he said he will take the car the next day.

i told him that i was not willing to change the CSC now as my car has just went for 3M paint protection and i dont want them to soil the whole thing . i told him that i will change it dusring the free service since it is only 3k more for it.

But still they were pressurising me to send it. in similar fashion i got a call from SA yesterday and purposely i didn pick it up.

Today morning when i got up i heared someone knocking the door in my house at around 8AM. when i answered to my surprise it was a couple of guys from concorde. they told me that they have recieved orders from fiat to replace the CSC at my home itself and they have brought all the replacement and tools for it and are willing to change it now.

I fainted!!

They took half an hour and changed the CSC at my doorstep and went back!!


now tell me is the world going to come to an end so soon?!!!. i am really puzzled. i am pinching myself so hard to believe!!

Are they really bucking under the pressure that we team-bhpian linea owners are putting?. has concorde changed for good?

only time will tell!!

atleast i am happy the first time and the smile has returned !!

If for some reason the service advisor does not pick up your call, be equally understanding!

Ashwin, great to see that Concorde has improved leap and bounds. Customer service at the door step is really great.

Even my CSC is yet to be replaced, I would love to get it changed at my door step.

Ashwin, is that exclusive experience offered only for you or is it available for everyone?

Another way to look at it that maybe CSC replacement is a serious issue and can lead to serious damage, if left unattended. Maybe they are giving priority to those who have complete a certain mileage..more mileage means more damage and hence the urgency...from your post it seems 12K Kms completed..

Did you feel any change after replacing CSC ? My CSC is yet to be replaced. But before that I have got new problems on my Linea. I have got enough rust on my Linea similar to what bnzjons have got.

Even in my car CSC was changed
not driven much though after the change but i felt the clutch play reduced and the gears were slotting much better after the csc change. car is a bit smoother ( may be i am dreaming)
