Got friend went jb to fix his car. But come back SG car got worst. Agent show him his car got many parts got switched, car gone cast. Dunt ask what wkshop or parts, I'm not a car person, he berry tu LAN, car beyond economic repair. For me I think change tire,wiper,oil,spark plug should be OK but not major better go back agent if still got warranty
Bro please let us know the garage you friend went, if inconvenience to state here please pm me! going in JB for servicing

that sounds jialiat. u wanna service car go reliable workshop like YS or LCH, i left my cars over night with both before no issues.... left a 125i there before overnight as well, still powerful lol. But i must highlight that the swapping out of spareparts i heard of such stories 15-20 years ago but in the last 10 years never heard of anyone kena such things before even though i work in JB or KL, however if it happened *15-20 years ago maybe could happen but those are confirm not legit workshops those are crooks. However base on what this brother is saying we are unable to establish if the friend's car is a second hand car or a brand new car that he has all along.

Recently helped a friend - my friend's dad bought a second hand Nissan less than a month before he passed away in his sleep, when we check the car some parts were oem and giving problems send back to Tan Chong to change back to original parts cost over a thousand to get it fixed and replace.... second hand car not sure agent crook or the previous owner a cheapskate or his Sg mechanic (got the servicing label) is a crook

Anyway those unfamiliar just hang around and watch the workshop work

Bro laksafan. Do you know if ah Chen or ah yuan is well versed with diesel vans? My bro has a Toyota hiace Long wheelbase and he maybe able to get Malaysia road tax and insurance so may intend to service his van there. Problem is , I have never seen them working on diesel vans. I know it's more or less the same but it would be good if they know how to work on these euro 5 engines. They are so sensitive and the electronics sometimes give you headache.

Your jb workshop will have contacts to that. Make sure you print your vehicle log card and pass it to the tow truck driver. I think it's around 600 rm.

I always buy my stuffs from Taobao and get them fix in JB.
Same product but inferior quality sg still more expensive. Some even 10~20 times of Taobao price yet cheapo quality.

They selling people who 'trust' them lo or those who dont do their homework and always think everything is suppose to be 'cheap'in JB.

Never like to go there after asking him for quote once for installing alarm.

Avoid KSL area and those at the main road Lebuhraya Tebrau, the main road before you turn to go to KSL or Sentosa. 99% are chop carrot shop.

I understand some like to do it there because they dont like to sit inside workshop to wait.

So get their car done when going KSL to shop.
But little did they know, the moment they parked there, they are being robbed 😂

Yet again, the car is still there.....
