I have a Myvi 1.3M, just bought a few months ago, and thinking to do some stuff:

1. Engine due for servicing, need to change sparks as well. Got my owl oil and filter.

2. Radiator flushing, the tank how many time empty and refill, still rusty and brown. Where can get a workshop that just run water in the piping and engine block, flushing it until clean?

3. My OBD port not working, need diagnose. Engine light on/off.

3. Clutch is making noise.

4. Handbrake not power, sometimes roll back if park at very hilly place.

5. Subwoofer (installed by previous owner) suddey becomes weak.

6. Alignment. The last time I went there, after align my steering senget already.

Do recommend me some place for good service and reasonable pricing. Thank you.

I think I’ll enjoy a sporty ride, how come you strongly suggest not to change exhaust?

Do you know what is a good depre price for a stock cs3 for 5-year coe?
Factors to consider
- individual preferences. I prefer stock and rather save the money on wear & tear
- inspection
- complications like compromising FC, comfort etc.

Not talking abt ralliart turbo and the rare MR, I think the dep for normal cs3 (renewed) should range from 5k to 6.5k depending on condition ba. Of course Sports version looks nicer.

Welcome another myvi owner... Enjoy the ride....
Almost all JB workshops can deal with your ride. Just avoid those workshops near ksl.
I send my myvi to Permas Jaya

You own a Myvi as well? Perhaps we can share some contacts on where to go... I tried going to Ros Merah, the Perodua SC, but its just a troublesome way going to agent... And a lot of parts they don't have, required to order first and come back later...

Thanks so much.

I’m looking at one now fully stock, wna send for STA inspection but dealer not so welcoming of the idea scared later wear and tear issues arise then I expect them to do.

I test drove the car in their carpark and all was ok, steering ok suspension ok. Only thing is engine when on the aircon at the start got some funny rattling sound which he said there was a metal stuck or sth and it’s settled.

He suggested me to take the car for a spin or get a trusted Mechanic to see the car before purchasing. Depre 5k.

Is it advisable for me to proceed still and if so, any trusted Mechanic you guys know of who can provide this service?

PS. I found the seat abit Too high for me even though I lowered to the max, should I change a new set of seats or anyway I can lower it further?

Thanks alot in advance guys.

No prob. I would prefer my mech than STA. Before I bought my cs3, brought to CH motor at ubi (Joseph) for checks. Note that his ws is not cheapest and be very packed but I trusted him. Everything ok but needed to change mountings and suspension could last for a year. Not all dealers would allow this arrangement.

Of course you can change the seats like BRIDE etc. Settle the wear and tear first before making the next move.

How much did your mech charge you for the checking service?

And also, Hwz don’t have notification saying someone replied to me?

Yes. Before was driving kelisa. Now renewed myvi for another 10years. Fully sound-proofed.

I go to this workshop since my first car..

LTEN PRO
23, Jalan Permas 9/9 Bandar Permas Jaya. 81750 Masai, Johor.
Contact Ah Chen @ +60127942588

This shop is 5mins walk away from Aeon. Usually, i call Ah Chen before i head there. Just to make sure a slot for servicing.
Again, please dun expect very very very clean workshop like those in sg. lolz

I buy EO filters (SGD$3.00/pc. Original Perodua packaging), coolants (In Toyota packaging), a/c filters (No brand) at: Then proceed to LTEN PRO. Cos very near each other. Famous wanton noodles also near this spare parts shop.

Chong Huat Auto Parts Trading
No. 36 & 38, Jalan Bakawali 38, Johor Jaya, 81100 Johor Bahru, Johor.

LTEN PRO do not do wheel alignments/ tires. But can ask them to rotate for you.
