In general, EO and filter change at your 20k.
The rest would be check for W & T parts like pads. Check SP, top up fluid and then road test. JB workshops wont follow a strict list of replacement parts like AD in Singapore.

Can include wheel rotation too. You should rem when was the last time you replace a battery. I do it every 12 month. The used one usually the workshop oredi factored in as trade in when you decided to replace a new piece, else sell it over at carousell. Hehe.

In this case, fluid change more critical. Engine oil.

Dirt Cheap. Basically, remove and install. No brains job. If you have a jack, can DIY too. But again is a SGD $ 3.3333, just give him this job.

Does tire rotation mean swapping between back n front?

Wa price of my JB car wash. Dunno if Malacca practice the SG plate "premium surcharge" policy or not.
The most say you are SG PR so still considered local. For me I can't speak Malay, Chinese CMI in SG, go JB the Chinese service staff speak to me in English 30 seconds into the conversation. No choice go Malaysia sure kana pay "Sinkie surcharge", sometimes just to get them to say a few keywords in English.

That's why now I tell the kids being able to speak proper Mandarin is very important and not just get by with mixing a bit of English into Mandarin conversations.

for me, i will ask the mech to move front left to rear right, front right to rear left, rear right to front right and rear left to front left.

if your front and rear different size, then just swap left and right.

my exp with most mech is they will just move the front to the rear, vice versa.

try to read thru this thread. a lot of sharing on which shop is trusted. ah yuan is one of them. for ice, lighting, accy... sheng auto. body stuff, btss. and more.

when u go to these shops, u go with a peace of mind. no need to second guess. no need to worry about paying premium. if not sure, always whatsapp the shop staff and check first.

but always good to speak in their language or accent if u can. i think most people will usually appreciate it. may be they have the impression u are local, so they wont any how qoute. ha.

Change to non directional tyres.
Directional tyres are just too troublesome for me.
