According to a recent survey, there are a total number of 1.2 Billion vehicles in the world which clearly states people generally see it as a boon. People generally purchase cars over other vehicles as it is convenient and an easy way of transportation.

- Old model delivered
- Worn out tires
- Registration issues

- Damaged car supplied
- Defective vehicle
- Vehicle service issue under warranty
- Missing Feature
- Oil leakage

How to resolve Automobile Complaints?
So how can an individual file a vehicle complaint? Keep on reading to know more.
1. Contact Automobile Company:
First and foremost the consumer should try to contact the Car Dealer or Bike Dealer in case of any issues in the vehicle. You can also contact the customer care number of the Automobile company as you can contact them from anywhere be it Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata or Ranchi. As Automobile companies value customer feedback so they will try to resolve the complaint at this stage only. The customer care number of some of the leading automobile companies in India are :
Tata Motors Customer Care India - 022-62407101
Mahindra & Mahindra Customer Care India – 1800 209 6006
Maruti Suzuki Customer Care India – 1800 102 1800
Hero MotoCorp Customer Care India – 1800 266 0018
Bajaj Auto Customer Care India – 7219821111
Toyota Customer Care India – 1800 425 0001
Chevrolet Customer Care India – 1800 3000 8080
Mitsubushi Motors Customer Care Number – 1800 102 2955
Honda Motors Company Ltd. Customer Care Number – 1800 708 6555
Ford Motor Company Customer Care Number – 1800 419 2500
However, in some cases it has been seen that the Automobile companies refuse to cooperate with the customer especially in cases such as Car damage due to service center, engine leakage, battery issue, starting trouble, car warranty etc.
So how can a consumer file a complaint against an automobile company in such cases? Firstly you should talk to the manager of the particular showroom and try to understand your options. If you feel that they are being reasonable you should try and settle the case.
2. Send a Legal Notice:
However, if you feel that they are totally at fault and are unwilling to offer any compensation, repairs or resolution to you, then you can take a legal action against them by sending them a Legal Notice. You should contact a lawyer for drafting or sending a legal notice to automobile company. A well drafted notice by a professional lawyer has gravity.
3. File a Consumer Case:
If you do not hear back from your automobile company after sending a legal notice then you should approach Consumer forum for getting resolution in your case. You can file a case at your nearest consumer forum, if they are not responding to your concerns. You can check our article on how to file automobile complaints in India here https://voxya.com/stories/how-to-file-a-automobile-complaint-in-india/
We at Voxya help in taking legal action against Car dealers and Automobile companies. We also help reaching out to company officials by using Social media, emails, sending notice and approaching the consumer forum.
