    This is the worst service centre in coimbatore. I own a shift dezire TN 37 CF 9958, my vehicle got accident before two months and they quated 170,000. they said apart from insurance i have to pay 20,000 in approx and finally they make me to pay 42,000. Even the work are very poor, some of the parts they haven't painted just fitted the stock (EX. inner bonnet, engine guard...). Fittings are worst, dikki door light sensors are not working. I told my vehicle drifted for 200 to 300 mts while getting accident so my rims may be damaged ' but they haven't checked. now i am filling air for my two tyres for every 2 days. There is a big comedy in that, i haven't fount a stump guard in my vehicle after repaired. i asked with the service manager, he replied that the stump guard will be fitted only in new vehicles. even my vehicle is 2013 model and in stock guards are available. IF U WANT TO HAVE ORIGINALITY PLS DON'T GO TO JAI KRISHNA SERVICE CENTRE (THUDIYALUR)
