Any undiscovered gems?
Apart from the usual ws, so far recently I have try 2 ws nearby Rambo ws area.
Visit them for simple jobs like change headlight bulbs and alignment.

Was unsure of this ws so did not want them to touch my engine bay much.

Try this ws call S&D Tyre and service near dato Sulaiman for balancing and alignment And change light bulbs. All labour as I bring own bulbs.

Text the boss told me this price, but reach there told me additional 15RM.
So told him I did WhatsApp before come, then his face change already and say okay stick to the price.

The boss tall fat guy skin head, he got 3 workers under him.
He help to change the bulbs, after change no test also weather got install properly before ask his workers take out tyres do balancing.

Then I check myself got one side not working ask his work redo.
Then while do balancing talk to his workers. Young chap just join 3 mths, another guy join 2 years.

After alignment, paid and drove off, alignment was not properly done.
Avoid at all cost this shop


Then next day went another shop toyo tires near to dlux car wash.
Before dlux u will see This shop.

Went for alignment , 45RM, boss did a proper job, and even test drive the car 2 times before pass me the key. This time round alignment was down correctly.

Boss was friendly and humble and also put back my window shades before pass me the key.

Will KIV this shop for future use.

Dashboard usually expensive cos need take out.
Can try ask for second opinion. Before repair.

I found another air con shop in JB. Lots of good review.
From google mostly sg cars go there.

They only do aircon and. Nothing else.
Can drop by.

Thanks a lot. The workshop looks promising indeed. Concern about how long it takes to repair as I will not want to leave my car there overnight. I guess I will just have to reach there early in the morning...

regarding 2nd opinion, I went to mark cool and was quoted similarly $350 range. I was rather taken aback by the labour cost. was expecting max $200 but

Just to share, I also had the same situation as you. My Honda Freed 2009 aircon got problem as it was not blowing cold anymore. So I send it to Sheng Auto Aircond & Accs shop in JB which is recommended here in this forum. They checked and suspected that cooling coil got problem. So they dismantled it and found out that theres leak on it, they put in some air and show me wheres the leak to confirm. Im satisfied on how they repaired my aircon. Cost is as follows. Denso Cooling Coil RM 580, Labour Charge RM 200, Gas 134A RM 40, Total: RM 820 = S$ 270. So you can decide where to repair your aircon in SG or JB?

thanks so much for sharing...the stark difference in the labour cost is really astonishing i went to sheng auto recently too and it is really popular. but I did find that their pricing is gradually creeping up due to increased popularity...

Personally, as long is cheaper than repairing it in sg, i would still heads in JB to get it fixed. This is the primary objective.
Cheaper by how much is very subjective and let individual decide.

Everything is getting pricier in sg, likewise price would also creep up in the north.
