Try hawk Tyre at sutera mall. Got shopping centre to spend time while repair. Also buy all the required parts and bring along.

But no body repair there.

Honda ride can go SKM(boss ah heng) to get it done.
Nice boss and quote reasonably too.

This so called Honda specialist is No.1 cut throat shop, no doubt about that.

Try get a quote from him and compare with others then come and tell me whether Ah Heng is reasonable or not.

Tried him so many times and I'm very very certain his price is sky high ex !

Guess he is not your meat/vegetable ba lol.
As believed, one man's meat is another man's poison but not yours. =

And am saying he is reasonable, not the cheapest thou so pricing everyone should ask around and do your homework what/who workshop/mechanic is worth it?

Hhmmm as for sky high pricing?
For servicing maybe(it's $100+; depend on what EO you chosen) as he have his own EO, etc.

But I usually did my basic servicing; elsewhere as I do BYO stuffs to workshop to get it done at with labour cost( mainly in JB =P )

Otherwise my personal experiences(a couple of times too) was good as in he knows Honda's cars well(dare not comment on others make but see it in his workshop too)

And other stuffs I did with him, he will surely honour what he done if after driving yet still don't meet driver's expectation(he will listen thou)

For 1 example in term of cost/pricing, I changed all my engine mounting with him, products cost alone as we can easily get from stockist, if not his labour cost is basically reasonable or for this case, almost equal with JB's labour cost as far as I rememebered & my aircon system all done by him too was pretty good.

So for my skyhigh pricing experience cost may just be something else which I do believe paying the Right-Man RIGHT(in the of cost) save me much trouble of keep going back to workshop again.
Guess this is why some may still go back to AD as for a peace of mind as they can't find any other workshops to do the job well.

Am not to defeat him as I dont work or get any com from him either but maybe you can share with us what bad experience you recieved from him as to be fair for all here to understand and take note too.

Lastly, no doubt his service may not be the cheapest but my personal experience with the boss(ah heng) is he is a pretty nice and humble fellow as he does listen to your problem 1st, advice on and see if you want to do it, not like some I went before, do not seem to care much about their customers.

The only downside about skm may be the long Q or wait as usually I will stay throughout the repairing duration.
But now am trusting him more, at times, I will park, let him do it and come back to collect.(this is another reason why I don't do my basic servicing there, too long of a wait but heard it improved but again the pricing does seem skyhigh for me =p )

Angry LIAN SENG SERVICE CENTRE

Bro, can quote the name of the shop...
I frequent Lian Seng along the road leading to Holiday Plaza...
So far so good... But ever since those old bird mechanics run liao, I think there service standard drop too...
I would like to share my experience with the same LIAN SENG branch on the 10 June 2016. Did my engine oil and filter change, tyre balancing, ATF, fuel filter and 2 radiator hose replacement.

1. Radiator Hose Replacement (1 pair)

During servicing, the tall Chinese mechanic mentioned that the radiator hose was leaking and was quoted RM98 each. Decided to replace both the top and bottom radiator hose. The following morning, my radiator and engine light came on after 10 mins of driving. Call up my Singapore mechanic and he advised me to keep topping up the radiator with water in order to limp back to his workshop which is a 10 mins drive away. My Singapore mechanic did a quick check and found the top radiator hose came loose causing the coolant to leak out. I suspect that Lian Seng mechanic did not insert the hose and hose clip all the way in resulting in the hose coming loose. My mechanic secure back the hose and hose clip and I just paid for a new can of long life coolant. A big thumbs up to my Singapore mechanic.

I cannot imagine this to happen while I am stuck in the causeway


2. Fuel Filter Replacement

My fuel filter is located at the bottom of the back seat . After the replacement, my back seat and tissue box cover which is hanging at the back of my driver seat are all stained with black sealant. My back passengers all got stained black sealant stains on their shorts. I had done this fuel filter replacement thrice at other workshops before and none had messed up the interior like Lian Seng.

In fact there are also other unpleasant incident which I do not want to mention further. To be fair to them, their prices and service used to be good when they were still new at the KSL area but these incidents are the last straw that I will patronise them again

After reading this, I hope you can make your own judgement whether to patronise them. Their full address is


LIAN SENG SERVICE CENTRE

181, Jalan Dato Sulaiman,
Century Garden
80250
Johor Bahru, Johor

Motul engine oil + oil filter + labour = RM 220.

After servicing, go to Sutera Mall area to do shopping and makan.

A bit too far to go there just for EO change.

As a guide, i did

1. Change of EO
2. Drain/flush/replace coolant
3. Change of CVTF
4. Bleed/replace brake fluids

All labour only, items from home.

RM80.

mazda 2 creaky sound

Hi bros,

I have a 8 yrs old mazda and lately the car got this creaky "Krraackkk" sound coming from the body when travelling, intermittenly.

Strange thing is, once raining days or after car wash then no sound at all, sometimes no sound for few days after the car gotten wet.

Sent to mazda service centre they said its the exhaust pipe loose, sent to sg mechanic they said its tires support, and sent to JB they said its the shock absorber and CB-Joint....

I am like wtf....

Any car guru here please help!
