If buyer ask then change. If not you are wasting your money. On a side note, all car buyers...please request for a foc engine oil change regardless of whether it is due because it cost them very little. (Lets hope your buyer is not reading this)

Try Auto Champion Star - have been using them for several years now - the boss is Ling and he's honest and reliable - prices very reasonable so much so i've never had to bargain. Highly Recommended. Great mechanics too!!

If you don't have the parts, he is able to get most parts from stockist in JB. I normally bring my own engine oil purchased from Giant [Shell Helix].

Whilst servicing, go get a Grab car and go to the mall to shop and eat.

Not advisable to leave your car out of your sight especially in Johor. In Singapore I wont even advise you to. Especially if you have a couple of major things to do. Stay around to make sure bad parts/components get swapped for brand new parts. Just saying. Up to you to heed my advice.

I suppose in this case, your ride is with your trusted workshop. Make sure at the end of the day, your ride is inside the workshop not parked outside.

Take all your valuables with you. End of the day, you must be comfortable.

I am in the industry. I am just giving advice to avoid Murphy's Law for consumer like you. Clean and honest because you are not there to witness everything and you assumed it as you expected.

Then you can find another workshop. What kind of repair work? There is nothing my workshop can't do it in a day. Of course my workers would dilly dally at times because they don't get paid more for doing faster yo. If anything they will have more things to do if they do faster. If i am at the workshop my priority will be to clear the queue asap.

It is not so much about the valuables but workers being human, will cut corners if they can. No big deal about it. Some workshop can also swap brand new parts you brought in for used parts they have. There are just too many stories. For simple work its ok but if you are going to have any major work done..definitely good to hang around and see for yourself the bad parts are out..and new parts in.

Thanks.
Yes, i agreed that there are black sheep in every trade. This is business, we can't 100% stop that.

I went thru alot of time counter checks between each workshops before i can pass my keys to them and left the workshop.

Thus I like the workshops to work on my car while I watch. I have some basic knowledge about cars. So it helps.

Thanks.
