Got my car checked up in Carnation recently. They are offering free car wash along with polishing the interiors also here in Chennai , not sure about other outlets. They have done a good job. Work is satisfactory and they are also very friendly to all the customers. They charged Rs.50 for everything finally.


Serviced my Safari also there. Includes free car wash with polishing the interiors also. Anti-rust coating for the underbody had to be done , so did that also.Changed the floor mats also as they were in a bad condition. The total bill came to Rs. 4300 approx but with some discount they said the Final bill is Rs. 3400 approx! Again work was satisfactory and they delivered both the cars in one day itself! And they also mentioned some of the repairs which had to be done in Safari like oil sealant leaks , ball joints and tie-rod replacement etc.

Yes buddy the work was done to my satisfaction and was delivered within a day! Only thing is they made me wait for 15 mins before attending me while taking in both the cars. While delivery i was made to wait for 15 mins before being attended. But the response and respect was good!

If they maintain such kind of service, Carnation is surely going to be a hit. Atleast it breaks the monopoly of the A.S.S who are these days charging a bomb for the service.

I guess as a new entrant, the levels of service committment will have to be high to draw people away from the Manufacturer A.S.S.
But the prices are really a pleasant surprise.

Yes hope they can teach a few lessons to some of the TATA A.S.S here in Chennai in how to deal with cars!
Carnation will surely attract a lot of people, but i doubt TATA will learn any lessons. But it is surely a great relief for TATA car owners and others who are fed up of poor service provided at A.S.S.
