Great Customer Service
I had a great service experience recently with Popular Elamakkara. The overall experience at this dealership was a very pleasant one. Special thanks to the DRM Mr.Antony, Customer Care Manager Vipin & Service Advisor Lijo who moved the process along very quickly and made themselves available to answer all my queries. The tech team members Jeffin, Alfikkar and Baiju had done a really wonderful job in servicing the vehicle. Telecaller agents Sheethal, Praveen and Anu from the insurance department assisted me for a hassle free insurance renewal procedure.
I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone who needs some assistance with buying, repairing or maintaining a vehicle. Hats off to the entire Popular team!!!
Special thanks to, Popular H&C compound, Mundakkal West, Kollam, Kerala 691001, India

Thank you so much Mr Abhilash & Anil.
I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to Popular Vehicles & Services Ltd, related to my recent purchase of Maruti Suzuki Car- Celerio.
I am extremely happy to say that the service and support given to me during the whole process of discussion and deal finalization was fantastic !! incomparable to any other dealer.
In fact I have not visited the show room even to see the car before I took it-not even once!! Finalized everything over the phone and net. I just Came to show room and collected the key and car. Everything was perfect – whatever details given to me before was exactly same in real.
My thanks goes to Mrs. Sheela and Mr. Medrin. I have to admit that you have got the most wonderful staff.
I was dealing with Mrs. Sheela for my previous car – for whatever requirement-she is always there with instant solutions and that made me to go for the second car from Popular itself. Now I know Mr.Medrine, I am double sure that my next car purchase also will be from Popular.
It is my pleasure to let you all know that I have seen my friends purchased cars from other dealers – unhappy. I strongly recommend them – go to Popular.
Whoever I spoke to-whether it is accessory sales or service or any staff – I found them all very much customer friendly- ever ready with a polite face.. even the car cleaner.
God bless you all-
God bless Popular.
Chief Engineer-Consultant Specialist,
Ministry Of Health,
I’m Nirmal James, a proud owner of Suzuki Baleno with registration number KL 07 CM 5063.
I’d like to take a moment to specifically applaud the superior attitude of your employees, Ms. Rajeshwari J(Secy. to the Director), Mr. Antony(Workshop Manager) and Popular Dealership in general for the outstanding turnaround time in getting my car repaired after the devastating flood that occurred in Kerala.
I want you to know how I appreciate your working with me on my repairs after my car was affected by flood. The insurance claim procedures by Maruti Insurance were also highly efficient and hassle free. My car was classified in the A category with hydrostatic lock and Mr. Baiju Vikraman assured me that the repairs will be done quickly.
They have gone beyond what I asked for or expected. This has increased my confidence in your Nexa approach, from purchasing the car(Basil from Nexa Showroom, Palarivattom did a great job), its periodic services, customer centric approach and finally, the service center helping me with the procedure for repairs(Mr. Sharafudeen and Mr. Abdullah need a special mention here). I received my car back in mint condition in less than a month’s time(23rd August 2018 to 19th September 2018). I have never been more delighted.
It’s situations like this that go a long way towards retaining customer loyalty. This car is the 3rd Maruti Suzuki car that we have owned, Esteem VXI and Swift VXi being the first two. With the type of customer care I have experienced at Popular Service Center, more than a few strong recommendations to friends and families will be made. Once again, my appreciation to you for outstanding customer support.
Thank you for reading!

Thanks to Martin for his patience and explanation in detail.
I will definitely recommend Abin and team.
I am really enthused to inform that the paint work done for my Ray Blue Baleno exceeded my expectations.Your team was able to formulate exact ray blue shade for my bumper.I appreciate my Service Advisor Akhil Babu and Service Head Arun for the support extended.

Dear Biju I think it’s been 4 years we have met,
I am NRI working in Dubai was in Bangalore in August to consult my friend about my car, because I had faced some ruthless experience in Calicut Popular. Suddenly I remember about Mr. Biju C.V Long time no contacts and no connections who was borne me from the beginning means from 2009 onwards. I try to call him last number where he worked as manager where someone picked the call and asked what the reason why I am asking about Mr. Biju. It’s not only me so many others as calling in same number enquiring about you. So, I explain about your importance why am tracing you. After sometime I got your new number and called you.
“You know what made me surprise? Still you recognized my voice in specific hello” From the beginning onwards, you maintained the same bond till now.
On the way from Bangalore (13/08/2018) I reached Ottapalam popular for service by 9 am By noon my car was ready, the reason was he arranged the spare parts in advance according to my complaints this saved my time because I was flying back to Dubai on next day.
After a long time back, you brought back me the lost trust in me for Popular Service
On 19th August I contacted you again when my car was in the flood, and I called you “when you said no problem sir I will take care of it” I feel the same confidence on your words as you carry with you from the beginning and you took immediate action and initiative to bring the car from North Paravoor and started the work time to time. Also keep on posting the work done daily basis.
For us that car was so special and important. When I discussed with my wife about you and your work and the importance and support you provided from the past so we decided to write about you.
I’m proud that you have made it so big again. You have proved your resourcefulness and I sincerely appreciate you for that. I am so gratified to have an employee like you in Popular Maruthi Service.
In the past, you have proved your credentials with your hard work and commitment which has borne such great results now. You are undoubtedly an asset to the company and with your mind blowing organizational and professional skills you will help the company scale in a new height of achievement.
Any assignment carries a sense of responsibility and seriousness and you have just fit in the required criterion with such a fine past professional record and great experience in handling customers. Once again, I appreciate and congratulate you on this achievement of yours. I wish you all the very best for your successful future.
Keep your positive attitude alive, and never let the enthusiasm in you fade, this is your strength. Keep it up….
Popular Service Management,
Request to Popular Service Management to provide trainings from people like Mr. Biju to all other popular service centers, how to deal with customers and satisfy the customer’s. Also Manage the relationship with them (Especially in Calicut & call centers). (I work in service industry last 16 years so I know the customer value how important is customers satisfaction). Personally, I visit the service center where Mr. Biju is working I find it always neat and tidy, friendly with technicians providing proper guideline and checking their efficiency (I personally talked & understand from technicians) and giving the customer with proper awareness and talking to them showing the real issue which makes more confident to give cars in popular service.
I am very much satisfied with the work done by Popular Vehicles. My car no KL 7 CC 9857 given due to flood affected problem. You have given back almost a brand new car.

At the outset, let me introduce myself is Abhilash Karatt Vellatt and bought a New Swift AGS from your Mamangalam showroom 2 months ago. I have received a very basic customer experience from your sales team but when I visited your Elamakkara Service Station last month for the first service was simply superb by one of your staff Mr. Shyam he is taking care of bodywork and claim. I am totally impressed with his approach and service-oriented attitude. I am a certified hospitality trainer and has more than 15 years experience in service industry.

My name is Rohith K Ajay, I work with Ernst & Young, Kochi and just thought I need to take a moment to thank Mr Nishanth, Supervisor, Body shop for his exceptional client service showcased during my last visit at your service centre. Nishanth showed patience to answer my queries regarding the accident claim and also helped to complete the job well ahead of time. He has gone above and beyond the expectations and is really an asset to the firm. Service centres should have genuine people like Nishanth so that customers should feel to come back to the place whenever they face any issue with their vehicle.
I am so much obliged to Nishanth for his valuable advises and support. It is said that the customer is the king, thanks a lot for treating me as an Emperor! Nishanth is a real superstar.

Just want to say, Austin/ Augustine of the Kuttukaran Maruthi, at Mamangalam is superb. His friendly and energetic service is so good. We had bought a new Swift from there recently. Even though faced a lag from technical guys regarding the Sony touch screen (they told they were not trained in these advanced devices) the dealing of Austine in all fields were good, and he still is in touch with us whenever needed.
All the best.

This is Sonu Joseph and very recently bought a car frm your agency.
I should acknowledge that my husband had registered in some website about his query on Alto and the very next day i had calls from various agencies from the city.It was this agency that caught my attention because of the warmth and a systematic approach they had towards an aspiring customer.Very genuine in their dealings and kept their word.
At this juncture i want to mention the great work done by Mr. Arun as he never got irritated to the number of times I had a query and clarifications. So from giving the details or specifications to test drive to booking the car and even arranging the car loan, seemed so smooth drive. It was delivered too with their assistance. Hope they keep this kind of work and attitude always. Your work and attitude towards customers need a special mention and it is worthy and appreciated.
Thank you for all the help and coperation extended towards me.
Hi Popular Maruthi !
I gifted to my mom, on her special day Maruthi SWIFT vxi from Pathanamthitta branch on 17-10-17.
We are very happy to give good appreciation to Mr. Nithin Sunny ( +91 858 999 2373).
Throughout the each process we saw & feels his appearance, dealing, accuracy, polite & honest was very aggressive & appreciative.
one word I like to say : “he did RIGHT, what he promised”
” I wish all the very best to Mr. Nithin & entire TEAM popular.”
I was so relieved on 18th Aug night when the on-road service gents at Uppala centre gave me a great saving hand by reactivating the broken power supply to fan, wipers and power windows. We realised the issue only after nearing the NH66 highway when the rain struck us badly and wanted the windscreen wipers and a/c fan to work. My family & I were so scared to continue journey in the bad weather but we badly needed to reach Kannur that night from Ullal where we visited a family member. The car I travelled was my co-brother’s ESTILO wheras I personally use a DZIRE at Kottayam. I showed the issue to 2 electricians & a 3rd party workshop before reaching Uppala but none of them couldn’t identify the issue.
To summarise, as a user/customer of maruthi cars for couple of decades now, this 24hr service that you have programmed is EXEMPLARY and highly value-added. I take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to Uppala Popular centre technician & leads who demonstrated a great confidence in troubleshooting, his agility in quick decison making and finally fixing in a very short span with a sincere SMILE of SATISFACTION.
SIMPLY GREAT SERVICE. Please do continue the same and anything beyond.
The value added in this instance is million timesfold for my family for just Rs.500 in a span of 30minutes!
Many thanks & Regards
I wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the wonderful and excellent service provided by your delightful employee Praveen and Manager Byju ( Palakkad – Popular Vehicles & Services Pvt Ltd)

The car is running better than it has in a while, and I give credit to the work your people did. I will recommend your company to others in the future, and of course I will return when my car needs maintenance. (10/10 points) . Thank you 🙂
I am writing this Email to keep in your records my appreciation for the excellent services rendered by Mr. H. Issac, Sales Executive of your Showroom. We recently (on 28 July 2017) bought a Maruti Wagon R VXI(O)AMT from your Anna Nagar East showroom through your Sales Executive Mr. H. Issac. I am giving below a brief background of our interaction with Mr. Issac:
In February 2017 I registered online for a Test Drive of Maruti DZIRE- 2017. I gave your showroom name for the Test-Drive. Since then Mr. Issac was constantly in touch with me on phone to update me when the new DZIRE is expected in your showroom. When the new DZIRE arrived in your showroom, Mr. Issac called me promptly to inform me about its arrival. At that time I was out of Chennai for a month. In spite of that Mr. Issac constantly kept in touch with me to know when I will be in Chennai to take the test drive. In the third week of July 2017 when I visited your showroom, Mr. Issac promptly took me for the test drive. After the test-drive I told Mr Issac that I would prefer to buy a SUV AMT instead of DZIRE. Immediately he took me for a test-drive in VITARA-BREZZA. I told him that BREZZA is ok but I am looking for an AMT SUV and thereafter I told him goodbye left the showroom.
Subsequent week he called me and convinced me to try a test-drive on CELERIO or WAGONR VXI(O) AMT. At that stage I told him that I am already in negotiation with a dealer to buy a TUV-8. But Mr. Issac persuaded me to take the test drive of CELERIO or WAGONR VXI(O) AMT. Accepting his request I took a test-drive of both the cars and after the test-drive myself and my wife decided on the same day to buy WAGON R VXI(O) AMT and made the payment to Mr. Issac.
Mr. Issac is an effective Sales Executive with a pleasant face. He has very good negotiation skills to convince a customer like me who has travelled all over the world and stayed in more than eight countries over the last thirty years. He is punctual and tries to fulfil the commitments given to the customer. He is an asset to any business organization. I wish him all the best and good success in his future career.
With best wishes,
Sir, I would like to send my appreciation for excellent work to all team members at the Maruti insurance in Popular vehicles Kottayam.
My Maruti Insurance policy renewal was handled extremely well. I was able to pay online and policy was processed the same day.
Please convey the team that their efficiency in handling the case was truly world class.
