I would request you all to refrain from visiting waseem engineering, peoples chowrangi, north nazimabad. I got my mehran's suspension overhauled and I was badly plundered and looted by them. I used to get my suspension and carburetor works done from there but my last encounter proved to be the worst one and I was badly robbed along with inferior quality parts. My mehran is the third car of our house and is sparingly driven. its an 18 year old car with 80000 kms on the odo meter. I am the first owner of the vehicle. Last year I had encountered some axel sounds and weak suspension bushes. I paid a visit to waseem engineering and they test drove my car and handed me over a further estimate of front shock absorber replacement. All this time I kept on asking them about the expense and they replied "Yaar tum tension na lo, hum dekh lengay". They dismantled the entire front mechanism and whatever part they dismantled, looked fine to me but they insisted on getting it replaced. No rear work was done. And all of the replacements were of kabuli parts. So let me highlight the costs. you will be shocked upon matching these costs with a mehran:
- Suspension Change/ Steering box Change/ Boots Change = Rs 4000
- Front Shocker pair = Rs 4000
- Axel Change = Rs 5000
- Front wheel Bearing = Rs 1500
- Kenchi = 2000
- Labour = 1000
The bill totalled Rs 17500 for a bloody 18 year old mehran, with only the new wheel bearings, otherwise the entire stuff was kabuli!!!!
And one week after the work was done, I noticed stiffness in my shockers. I approached them and they turned down my observation calling it an imagination, furthermore, the axels had started making sounds again in 4 months, and the suspension is back to its previous broken state. my car is hardly driven 6000 kms after the work and here I am with the same condition as last year with an outflow of rs 17500. I am also attaching the bills for your observation. And the story does not end here, my relatives and friends made me realise that I was looted so we made up a plan to check on the rates. I had sent a friend of mine to the shop for the estimates. He acted as a new customer and this is the estimate he got:
Axels replacement = 4000
Front shocker pair replacement = 3500
Kenchi replacement = 1000
bearing replacement = 1000
steering box, bushes and boots = 3000
There was no mention of the labour. So i concluded that they try their level best to reduce their prices to attract new customers. Once the customer is satisfied, they try to rob him on his next visits.
So i would request you all to discard waseem engineering from your options and all they do is to rob the customers, reinstall faulty, repaired and china parts under the name of kabuli and provide the so called "6 Months ki GAAAARANTEEEEEEEE" but do not entertain it. I was robbed badly with my genuine parts being replaced by faulty ones, but it is my job to ensure that no one else gets looted. Atleast this is the purpose of this forum, to help other. Please pass on my experience to all your friends, relatives, and non pakwheelers too.
