[Resolved]  T.V.S Star sports bike. — Customer harassment at TVS Agencies!!!

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing this letter as a totally disappointed Customer of TVS. I am completely lost with the Customer Care provided by the TVS Motor Agencies in Pondicherry.
I bought my bike (TVS Star Sports) back in 4th Dec’2008. The first day ride in my new bike gave me a jolting shock as the performance of the bike barely scratched the satisfactory level. So I visited PLA TVS Agency where I bought the bike. The Service Engineers responded requesting me to continue riding the bike in the same state for a month and that they will have it checked thoroughly and fix the problem in the First Service.
I did so and to my crude shock, the bike started the signs of trouble again within two days of the First Free Service. My repeated attempts to get this fixed was a total fiasco. After several unsuccessful services which failed to fix the problem, the behavior of the Service Engineers at PLA Agency turned hostile. They were unsympathetic in their response and failed miserably in standing up to the benchmark created by the TVS Group of Companies in Customer Care.
Albeit, the trouble in my bike did not show any signs of improvement.

I switched to JKAY TVS Agencies for the 2nd Free Service. But rather than healing the wound I was already having, the Service at this Agency did add to the pain. The very next day of the Free Service, the bike will again show similar symptoms of degraded performance. My relentless efforts in getting the bike diagnosed thoroughly to identify the root cause of the issue and getting it fixed never really yielded any results. Instead it aggravated the condition. After repeated questions to the Service Engineers at JKAY TVS, the Service Engineers behavior turned totally incomprehensible.
But this did not make me stop my efforts in getting my bike returned to the state I loved to have it. I contacted the TVS Regional Head Office in Chennai and got the contact details of Mr.Velmurugan, TVS Service Engineer, South Zone. I spoke to him directly and he advised me to have the 3rd Free Service done at PLA TVS again and he will see to it that the problem is fixed.
But to my dismay, the 3rd free service did not seem to have fixed the problem. When I contacted back Mr. Velmurugan, he repeatedly asked me to get it serviced but did not show the least inclination to have the grievances of the genuine customer redressed.
My final attempt to get the problem fixed did not help me either. I was asked to come back again and again for servicing but they don’t seem to have identified the issue. This has caused me mental agony and monetary loss as I am getting loss of pay at my work place for each hour I take as permission to attend to my bike’s servicing needs.
For my daily work, I need my bike in good condition if not in its best condition. Having lost all my patience, I finally surrendered my bike at JKAY TVS. I request you to kindly initiate appropriate processes to settle the Cost of the Bike and refund the amount to me as quickly as possible.
I never imagined even in my wildest of dreams that I would be undergoing such harassment with the Service Engineers of the Agents of one of a reputed name in India Motor Industry. I trusted TVS Motors but the trust is now lost and all that is left with me is awe and disbelief. My harrowing experience is making me abhor TVS brand completely.
Hence please let me know the modalities involved in getting my refund (the Cost of the Bike at its Face Value when I bought the bike) as quickly as possible.

Thanking you.

Yours sincerely,

(R. Sundar)

I am also not satisfied with the service provided by TVS service agent in Kirindiwela, Sri Lanka.

By Bike, TVS Apeche RTR, start giving a noise before, its 3rd free service. Informed the service engineers and they told they will correct it when the bike bring for its 3rd free service.

I did so, but the problem was not rectified and asked me to continue riding till the 4th free service. I did so and hoped they will correct the problem permanently. But after 2 days from the 4th free service, it started giving the noise terribly and I handed over the bike to TVS service engineer to produce the Bike for the monthly inspection of the TVS Regional Manager for Colombo, Sri Lanka.

I don't know, whether it had been inspected by the TVS Regional Manager but, service engineer told me that they found the fault and it was the bearing of the rear wheel and that it was replaced with a Japanees one and asked me to give the cost of Rs 500 for that bearing.

When I checked the sound was not there but, felt some extra tight of the chain mechanism and also felt rubbing/friction of the chain or the drive mechanism (Sorry I can not express the feeling exactly).

Any way after 1 days of the repair it start giving the same noise now with that added rubbing/friction noise.

Please let me know, how can I get corrected this painful headache. I spent nearly Rs 200 thousands for this so called super bike.
i m not satisfied with your service tvs(OM TVS Service center M.P Nagar Zone-2 Bhopal, M.P)
i bought a Scooty pep in the year 2004 from chhatarpur(M.P).And recently i met an accident on 15th feburary 2010 and so front panel of my scooty pep has been broken completely and i went to "om tvs" to find the damages occured due to acccident so they provide estimate of about Rs 6000. And asked me to left the vehicle for repairing so i left it.I went on 22 feb 2010 as it was the date mentioned by them to take the vehicle back and when i reached there(OM TVS) i saw they fixed different colored front panel and when i asked them that this is the different color, that they had fixed diffent color front panel and head assembly.and they replied that company has stopped manufacturing this color. and when i went to OM TVS showroom they showed me some of the shades available at the agency and i took a sample part provided by the company showed it to the service center they again answered the same thing that company has stopped manufacturing this color and this is not the color of your scooty pep.
And when i enquiried about the color in different agencies in different cities so they asked me place an order for the parts required in the same color of my scooty and it will take around 10 to 15 days to reach the parts in bhopal.
So how can they intially say that company has stopped manufacturing parts in this shade.
they placed "TITANIUM BLUE" instead of "MC BLUE", and there is a huge difference in both the shade n they said there is no difference in both the shades if there is no difference then why company is manufacturing same shade under two names.????
This whole incident causes huge inconvinience to me as i m a college going girl living without my parents in bhopal, how can they ask for 10-15 days more as i have left my vehicle for past 7 days at their service centre they should have placed right part on right time but they have not even though they are not guilty for their mistake.if you really care about ur customer then please tell me what should i do now? should i wait for another 15 days???and what if they placed wrong color part again???
if you really understand your customer problem then please do something about my problem otherwise i hv to take legal action for this inconvinience.

Now they told me to change the battery again.Even one year one battery cannot work.When i show the warranty card they told that they have to discuss with the comapny. Why TVS people using unbranded materials? Now my scooty is in your service centre(Bharath TVS) tiruvarur. My scooty no is PY 02 H1152. Kindly clarify with your service centre and waiting for your reply.

If i won't get the reply it means it force me to go to Consumer Court.
