Hi All,
Can anyone care to share any honest workshop that familiar with Korean Cars?
Mine is Hyundai Avante. Year 2011.
Left 11mths to go. But, high chance might renew Coe.
Thus, thing of changing all suspensions. And my rear power windows not working well. Sld be faulty already.
Will be staying over ag KSL for a weekend next week etc.
thurs, thinking of doing it in JB If can save a lot.
Hope for some sincere advises and recommendations.
Thanks a lot.
FYI, i renew my coe too for Avante and bought shock absorber, shock mounting, bushing, stabilizer links & dust cover for front & rear to replace in the north. Please note, only the rear stabilizer link needs replacement after 90,000+ km for me. Surprisingly, all the rest dun need replacement yet! Also, try swapping your big suspension springs, swap left with right side at the same time.

So suggest u check your parts first before replacement. Maybe some are still good. Get a mechanic or go YouTube learn how to check

Now can only remember it's in Jalan Seroja area, dun have exact address. I replaced the rear shock system first then the front, each time about 100rm labor and takes less than half a day so total like 200rm plus. Go ask around workshops in Dedap, Seroja, Rosmerah areas and avoid those too near the custom. If they quote u around that price, can liao.

If you are asking for normal EO and filter replacement, almost all shops can deal with it.

it's not just changing EO and that's it, there's a list of other stuffs to check for every 10k servicing, like change a/c filter, check coolant, check suspension etc.

Going back Mazda TEK for these is too ex nowadays, just want to know other alternatives out there.

If you had that expectation that workshops in the north follows what is practicing here in sg, then personally i suggest you visit sg workshop instead.

Over in the north, they would conduct the usual points checks (lubricant checks, air filter removed and air blow and under carriage.) Then perform road test. They don't have a check list on clicp board while going around checking the ride.
If you read couple of comments posted earlier, you would know how workshops in the north carry out their job.
Got leak/ faulty then change. Anything related to safety, change. Can tahan till next servicing, then change on next servicing.

Sheng Auto, is popular in this thread. Find them in FB. Contact Jackson @ +60167035250, about your intention and ask him for a quote.
Make a booking before go down.
