    Default Eye Opener.. :|

    I was getting my Cultus carburetor serviced from a workshop near Tariq Road. A Suzuki Macca motors workshop person dressed in Suzuki Uniform appeared on a motorbike with a carburetor with him.. He defined the problem to the workshop owner and wanted to get it back within 2 hours, since i was there so they were reluctant to discuss the rates but the uniformed person said "yaar itna kaam to laatay hain macca motors walay kuch khayal kar lo".. I was surprised that even the authorised suzuki workshops are getting the parts serviced from road side mechanics, the owner must have been charged a hefty amount but in reality its just like paying for peanuts. The above sentence of uniformed person also shows that its done on very regular basis.. so what makes a difference in going to these authorised service shops?? only peace of mind or what??? and its the same road side mechanics doing the job for the authorized workshop :|

    i don't know about others but once i got my car tuned from TOYOTA RAWAL MOTORS RWP and a young boy who age must not be more than 16 or 17 performed all the job.His performance was not that good but anyhow i had to pay triple the amount what normal mechanics charge. So afterwards i decided never to go to authorised dealers again.

    I know this already.

    Honda, suzuki, toyota all purchase floor mats from ordinary decoration shops. Here in peshawar, i know that decoration shop from which they purchase. All the "kheradiya" work is done outside as no 3s dealer offer such works inside their periphery. All 3s dealers wen need to replace a part, wud tell u price of new and then price of used (rebuilt by the company). That so called rebuilt one is the same v call Kabli.

    In my view, going to 3s is just a waste of money and nothing else

    @ Usmanansari


    I got a similar eye opener many years ago.


    My father used to go to Gabol motors to maintain our Suzuki FX. Once while we were there and the car was being serviced, we noticed a brand new unregistered Mehran up on the lift with a lot of people around. There were a good four or five people in official Suzuki factory blue uniforms. They were fiddling with the underneath of the car for something and a lot of activity/commotion was noticed.


    I asked the workshop guys what was happening and got to know to my horror that the Mehran was brand new and the 'engineers' at Pak Suzuki were unable to locate where a leak of gear oil was coming from. The idiots were simply unable to fix the problem at the factory so had brought the car to some 'ustaads' here!!





    The above and your story is what happens in our beloved country where corruption runs everywhere. I am sure a lot of employees including engineers at the factory are back door entrants on 'sifarish' and all.......


    We all need a good cleanup starting from the top right down to the very bottom........
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!
