Name Nishiokant Bhore
Cell number [protected]
Dealer KEtan Hyundai ,Nagpur Maharashtra

I Have urchase vehicle Santro Zing-XO saying that i will give you another two customer within a span of 25 days if you will give me proper services . i have kept my promise ---my freind Mr.Mitaram Patle and Mr.Jayant Vyas have also purchased the same vehicles.

Customer like me who have "n' numbers of followers had very bad experience -stated below

1) I have purchased Santro Xing Xo on 18 th october 2007. my vehicle registration number MH-31 CP 7933 Nagpur. at the time of booking your Cust,care executive promised me about exchange bonus and corporate discount amounting to Rs. 20000/-.Till the date i havent recieved any cheque from Hyundai after passing two months. i have already submitted all the papers for Exchange bonus and coprate discount.

2) Another thing your sales staff is hopeless, there at KETAN HYundai at Nagpur. They dont have a convincing ability.specially MR.Jefry.
They have delivered me a Silver color vehicle at last moment whereas i was pressing for Gold Earth.
At last moment Mr.Zefri told me ,Hyundai has already stopped the production of ZING XO. and we are having only 2 options.
Instead of convincing me Sales Manager -Mr.Jefry has given me two options Go for Silver or otherwise cancel your booking we dont need you.

3) After completeing 1400 KMS i have given my XO for free serving,at the time of delivery your service engineer at KEtan Hyundai Nagpur has told me "your vehiclewindshield broken glass. saying that it must be happened at your end. i want you ask one thing then while taking vehicle for servicing area why your engineer has not checked the vehicle first.

Hyundai Santro — servicing

i am sick of dsc hyundai , these people cant do a proper clutch change also . after the first time they changed my clutch , it started to jerk in 1 st gear , then they took the car again to say that some other part the plywheel is not right , they changed that , the problem increased . i had already spent around 8000 rs and was out of my mind , again gone back to them , they took the car again and changed the clutch the second time , to my shock it still jerks and sometimes starts to jerk while overtaking and this gets very risky . i am really disappointed with dsc hyundai service at chennai . i really feel the hyundai company should do something , the customers are etting pained ,takin new models out in the market with no sense of handling the present customers will one day lead them to shame only . i hope the company loooks into my matter and hope to get some positive reply
Please find enclosed the mail correspondence that I have done so far with no response.

Dear Mr. Asutosh,

I am sure now that Hyundai has truly gone down in terms of service level.

Despite your mail received almost 20 days back, I have not heard from anyone and no wonder the employees of the authorized dealers have also got the message that nothing will happen to them no matter in whichever way they handle the customers.

I have not got any resolution to my query and would like to have the email address of the Chairman of Hyundai Company so that I can write to him to make him aware as to how the company is being managed and how his efforts to grow the company are going down the drain.

Dear All,

I am very sorry to say but the entire set up of Hyundai is going down in terms of customer satisfaction.

I have bought my 3rd Santro in 6 years and each time I find the quality and customer service level falling.

This time I had bought a Santro from Jaybharat Automobiles Limited , Prabhadevi , Mumbai on the 30 August 2007and was very upset with the way commitments were made by the dealer and then post receiving the payment the way the Vice President Mr. Chandrabali C Prajapati handled the whole issue and treated the customers like a whole bunch of fools and his attitude towards the customers was so rude as if he is doing some obligation to the customers by delivering the car to them.

I have never come across any manager of this type in 20 years of my driving tenure.

He literally insulted us in the showroom and then laughed it off with his fellow colleagues as if he has achieved some thing great in life.

To add to the humiliation and wrong commitments that were made to us before getting the money, when today I tried calling your customer care helpline[protected] the call is getting dropped after every 1 minute of speaking time and this happened 6 times as if you want to discourage the customers from logging a complaint and adding to the woes of the already irate customer.

I am truly very upset this time and may be never look at going with Hyundai and neither recommend this brand to any one.

I agree with your grievance ..I also have a very very bad response from Ketan Hyundei Nagpur..They are simply maneersless.
I also have very bad response form the Kothati Hyundai, pune. Once the CAR got sold, they will go on toss. If you try to contact them they simply disconect the cell since they can see your number easily. If you called through other number they told me to contact office and dirvert the matter saying that I don't know about this u need to talk to office...

Finaly Idescided to not to recommend any frined to go for Hyundai.

Maruti is best in service after sale as well.
I have purchase a new Santro Xing GLS from MGF Hyundai New Delhi, on 14.05.08, Vehcile no. UP14-AQ3447, from starting of my car have some problem. I visit and so many time lodge complaint regarding this problem, but every time your service engineer told that no problem in your car. When I told your engineer in details than he agree that some manufacturing defect in this car. When i drive it, I feel that my car has pulling in left side. Now i once again request to you kindly solved my problem immediate otherwise i will go to consumer forum. I am totally mentally disturb with my car . In future if some mishappening or accident with me from this car, full responsibility of Hyundai Motor Ltd.

Hope you are known my problem and solve it.

Hyundai Santro — Complaint: TN22AY7547 / Kun Kottivakkam


It’s been a little over 3 years since I got my Hyundai Santro from your Anna Nagar Showroom. It’s the first car that I have owned and hence close to my heart. I have never missed a single service and have always given it to your Kun Service Centre at Kotivakkam.

After one such service, I started having serious problems in my car. The car was not stable and was shaking terribly when in movement. I called up the service centre who promptly took my car to check the cause of the problem. To my surprise, the service engineer calls up and tells me that they are unable to identify what is the cause of the problem. However, they suggested that when the wheels were changed, the car did not wobble. Though the wheels were in perfectly good condition I had to get them changed (3 of them for over INR 7200) since I needed my car back. They also wanted to charge me for the wheel alignment, though the car had been serviced just a week back and was sent back because of a complaint. After some persuasion, they just charged me for labor and cost of the tyres.

It’s just been a month, and I have started having the same problem again. I have absolutely no idea what I need to do now. The car seems to be absolutely unstable but am still using it. I am hesitant to give it back to the same service centre. In fact, I am seriously contemplating to exchange my car with another maker to avoid all the hassles I have had (and still having). I sincerely hope that getting my first car to be a Santro was a good decision, but am already having second thoughts now.

I am sure if I call up the Kotivakkam Kun Service Centre again, they would want me to leave the car for them to check. At the end of it all, empty my pockets with a big invoice, for the problem to re-surface in a while.

I hope someone acknowledges this issue and helps me understand the future course of action.
