Asalam o alikum!
I've recently bought Chevrolet Exclusive and facing many queries regarding high maintenance of the chevy cars on daily basis. So I thought to do some search at my end and post the information here for everyone's guide & ease. If you're looking for some good chevy mechanic, then prefer visiting chevy expert mechanics that are almost in every major city. Here are some mechanics in Rwp/Isb to whom i experienced myself:
Chevrolet Rawalpindi Auto Workshop (Mr. Shamim & Mr. Yasir)
Address: Near Old Daewoo Adda, Pir Wadhai Mor, Rawalpindi
Contact# 03335474325 (Yasir) & 03228516183 (Shamim)
Feedback: Recommended. I visited them after getting hopeless from Chevy ISB Motors & others. They satisfied me with both their expertise, customer service & rates (as compare to Chevy ISB Motors only). I think Mr. Shamim is the most senior mechanic of chevy in Rwp/Isb. He left long ago from Chevy ISB motors.
Chevrolet Islamabad Motors
Address: # 89, St #10, I-9 industrial Area, Islamabad
Contact No. 051-4431111
Feedback: They are so called authorized dealers of Nexus Motors i.e. Chevrolet Pakistan, Karachi. The team here pretend to be expert & professional especially about chevy. Mr. Aitazaz Niazi is managing the business which is considered to be the only authorized solution for chevy in ISB but the problems everyone complain about & experienced by myself as well is their EXTREMELY high & unfair rates, there's no policy for deciding rates and the team here has no technical knowledge. It seems Mr. Niazi has no concern about customer service and what his team is doing there.
Address: I&T center G-10 Islamabad
Contact # 0321-5294274
Feedback: I've never experienced him but came to know that he worked almost for 5 years at Chevy Islamabad Motors & is quite good in his field.
Contact # 03465310054
Address: Shahzad Autos, Street # 1, I-10/3 Islamabad
Feedback: He's a very expert, honest and educated gentleman. Unlike local mechanics/electricians, he is very polite and a mannered guy who works with complete honesty at very reasonable rates. He never demanded unfair charges from me yet. Must give my (Adil) reference if you visit him, I'm sure he'll give you some discount.
Muzammal Chevrolet Center
Address: Shop no. 359. Main Peshawar Road, Near choor chowk, besides NADRA office, Rawalpindi.
Contact # 0336-6667415
Feedback: Mr. Muzammal is a young guy who left from Chevy ISB Motors & started his own business. The guy has expertise in electrical work but be very careful while getting his services.
For AC work
Mr. Abu Bakar
Address: Universal Car AC, I&T Center, G-8, Islamabad
Contact # 03009192687, 03335527356
Feedback: Very humble, expert and best AC mechanic in twin city. Highly recommended.

Spare Parts: If you need spare parts, then:
- Try your best to buy genuince parts. Most of the parts of mehran, alto, khyber, cultus, cherry can also be used for chevy Exclusive, Joy & spark but only go for these parts if you can't afford the genuine parts.
- Dont ever forget to buy parts from above mentioned or any other local mechanic, they charge more than double of the original price.
- The best solution is to order your required (genuine) parts from Mr. Sebastian, Nexus Motors, Karachi (www.chevrolet.pk) who is dealing for chevy in Pakistan including imports & parts, etc. They deliver parts to your home address. Here are their contact details:
Mr. Sebastian Oliveira
Nexus Motors, 53C 15th Comm St. Phase 2 Ext DHA, Karachi, Pakistan
Contact # 03002669766, 03222669766
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org , email@example.com
If you just has to buy single part or little items then below mentioned info might be useful for all of you, they charge little higher than the price Nexus Motors charge for original parts:
Aziz Auto Store, Rwp
Address: Shop 198A, Adamjee Rd, Massey Gate, Saddar, Rawalpindi

Aziz Auto Store, Isb

Pak Korea Autos
Waheed Khan: 03215657555
Qazi Niaz Muhammad: 03335419968
Address: Ahata Mithu Khan, Adam Jee Road, Opposite Madina Market, Saddar Rawalpindi
There's another shop in the basement of the plaza in front of Pak Korea Autos. Visit both of these shops before buying anything. Don't forget negotiating
I found some info about some shops in Chah Sultan that I never experienced myself yet from another thread:
In Chah Sultan there are 2x dealers who deals wiht the chevy kabuli parts, one sits on the main double road where the mosque lies, 2nd shop in the small gali that leads to the mosque. The other sits, once you cross the second chowk and turns right while your back is facing margallah mountains. I dont have the location since some one told me about him a long ago.
At the end, as said earlier, try to prefer above mentioned mechanics who are expert in chevy cars & above mentioned parts sellers who sells original parts. Otherwise you can use many other car's parts for chevy cars and local mechanics as well but at your own risk.
* Alloy Rims are not recommended for Chevy Exclusive. Stay away from alloy rims for better performance
* Dry battery (also called maintenance free battery) is recommended over acid (pani wali) battery. Only buy AC Delco or Hankook's dry batteries.
* For proper care, read manual and maintain your ride accordingly
* Be aware from local mechanics especially electricians.
Please share if you have some more solid information in this regard belonging to mechanics & parts providers in Rawalpindi/Islamabad or something to add as instruction here.
