Default Independent Garage - The Mechanix Automotive (Pune)

Independent Garage - The Mechanix Automotive (Pune)-1-mechanix.jpg

The Mechanix Automotive (Pune)

Services offered:
  • Car repairs
  • Routine Maintenance & Servicing

What I like:
  • ASS alternative at a significantly cheaper cost
  • Personalised service: Anirudh is a Team BHPian (599gto). Sushant is also very approachable
  • Super convenient location at the start of Aundh-Baner Link Road. Plenty of fast and even some bumpy stretches to test drive
  • Pick up and drop off car at no extra cost
  • Very accepting of feedback and responsive to the smallest of issues raised
  • Comprehensive job done, within the estimated budget and on time
  • No pushy salesmanship or preferential treatment to an ex-mod: every customer that walked in got the same attention

What I don't like:
  • Final bill came higher than I expected. Worth it because of the good job done, however
  • Place needs better signage- a little difficult to spot from the main road
  • A bit lax on paperwork- they promised to send me a job card by WhatsApp but it never arrived
  • Final TD should have caught an annoying rattle in the front, turned out to be something loose in the bumper mount. They came and picked up the car and fixed it for free, however.

Speciality / USP:
  • Young professionals serious about their work. Sushant apparently has experience working in his father's garage. Anirudh manages the business end. Even the workers I interacted with were extremely polite and seemed to know their stuff.
  • A good alternative to expensive and impersonal ASS. They seem especially attractive to German car owners.

Mechanix is a very professionally run garage. I've been meaning to try them out especially because a large amount of money is invested in getting professional equipment and tools for making it a grade A facility. They are the only ones with a high quality paint booth. Everyone that went there from my recommendation has come back singing praises. Bhpian Aditya@pune, Amoghchaphalkar and noopster.

What's more, Aquatint is right next door and both units run closely with each other. Wishing Aniruddh and Sushant the very best for their venture.

I can vouch for the quality of work, with regards to painting . I had to get denting and painting done for my 2012 Grande Punto and a complete interior deep cleaning done . After about two days the car looked Brand New , no way to tell that painting of few panels had been done. Interior Deep clean was top notch . The work done was so superior that it almost looked as if it underwent ceramic coating .

Lalit from aquatint took care of all the work and delivered it before time .

Also got AC disinfection and AC filter replacement done from them .

The front office of Mechanix is also very tastefully done , pretty industrial look .

Yup- I got both my cars serviced here in the last couple of months. The Vento’s was a major job: 120k/8 year service, transmission service/AT fluid change and complete suspension overhaul. Swift was the 1L service and some miscellaneous minor stuff. Quality of service is good though attention to detail could be better. No question that the personal attention given to the car and owner makes it worth it. Am overall quite the happy customer!

Want to share an experience with Mechanix.

One of the two radiator fans of my Jetta conked off in Feb. Visited B.U Bhandari & they gave me estimate around 20k for the replacement.

I visited mechanix for the second opinion, they were kind enough to check whether the fan can be fixed without replacement (loose socket or something like) and if the fixing doesn't work, they will give me estimate for the replacement. I got the call next day after dropping the car that the fan needs replacement & I was quoted 25k for the same.

I decided to go with authorized VW workshop (BU Bhandari) as they were quoting 5k lesser for the job. Paid 500rs to Mechanix as the inspection charge & got the job done at BU Bhandari. Happy with the decision.
