What We Think
We empathize with the frustration that customer is currently experiencing. Purchasing a car or motorcycle in India is a deeply emotional decision. People invest a significant amount of passion and, oftentimes, stretch their budgets to acquire their dream vehicle. If, after spending substantial money on a vehicle, they encounter issues that prevent them from using it effectively, it can be truly disheartening. Constant trips to the service centre further add to their inconvenience, taking time away from their busy schedules. We sincerely hope that Ola addresses and corrects these mistakes promptly. It is crucial for them to ensure that such issues do not arise in the future, maintaining the trust, safety and satisfaction of their customers.
