Wink Car care

Also good to do our own regular checks and upkeep the car well e.g. ensure sufficient air pressure in the tire, checking battery fluid is sufficient.

erm.... go to your usual workshop which you can trust most... asked for his views on what other say about your cars.
Hopes this helps.

I am curious why some of the car servicing promotions are so cheap. S$50 inclusive of 4L engine oil. Has anyone tried? Are these reliable?

I know that 4L of engine oil can cost at least S$50.
I tried twice:
First workshop at Kaki bukit. Shop just open like 2-3 months. Using 5W40 Shell Helix +filter + few point checks. Total is $10bucks. Promo ends liao.

The 2nd workshop i went recently for the usual oil change...they running a NDP. $8bucks all in.

Cheers....

I believe that works in any kind of goods/services industry, they might just cut their profit so low until we feel it is unbelievable. But in any case, you have to check the credibility of the company though. There is a possibility that they are actually scammers, and will be shooting you with many other kinds of promotion (like the beautician promos, if you know what i mean). Anyway, strictly speaking, there are businesses that are daring enough to cut off their profit in order to get publicity, just a mere marketing stunt. So just research online and check the credibility yes? any thought?
I agreed. Marketing stunt to get in the traffic. Like the $10 promo shell helix oil promo i tried earlier.
