He was especially upset about how the technician forcefully closed the car bonnet, which made him feel ignored.

‘The worst workshop I’ve been to’

The customer’s review detailed their dissatisfaction with the service centre: “The workshop lacked clear organisation, disorientated. Staff were super unfriendly and NOT customer-oriented, utterly rude and not welcoming. Technician attending to my car was extremely unskilled, unprofessional. He seriously needs ample training, guidance, and more experience.”

However, what ensued was a revealing dialogue between the dissatisfied customer and the service centre owner, unfolding in the comment section of the viral post.

Autoservice centre owner responded

In a surprising turn of events, the service centre owner refuted the negative review with a detailed rebuttal, offering insights into the service centre’s amenities and pricing structure.

“I’m not angry, but what’s the purpose of posting such a review? The waiting area has plenty of sofas where you can lounge comfortably.”

“There’s a TV with Netflix, air conditioning with two 3hp cassettes, a Coway water dispenser, a chiller, WiFi, a prayer room, and a toilet.”

“Is it expensive? He also complains about the payment being expensive? Is the lighting in the shop poor like he claims? We’ve provided the best service possible, yet some still can’t accept an environment like this. It’s truly strange and puzzling,” he wrote.

The owner’s response highlighted the importance of context and perspective in evaluating customer feedback.

While the customer expressed discontent over certain aspects of the service, such as perceived unfriendliness and inadequate organisation, the service centre owner provided a counter-narrative, focusing on what they do to make customers happy and comfortable.
