Yup. No point risking 14 days “staycation”.

Unless both countries open up and removed travel restrictions and quarantine measures, else not many will go in like previously, including myself.

my friend dove his Forester to AD in JB for servicing. Warranty still accepted by MI Singapore.
Pricing cheaper by up to 30% Vs same PM servicing done at MI Singapore.

Not exactly 1:3 but more like half price for me, of course comparing the same package and mileage SG vs JB.

Good thing is the normal servicing was very fast. Less than 2 hours finish. SG half a day. Customer service is good, lounge area is comfortable. Don't expect the extra frills like free cleaning. But it's JB, car wash is easy to sort out.

Hello, sorry for the late reply .

Nope , missing coolant still. I have went to auto saver last month and they replace the water pump and water hoses . Total damage $300. Problem still persists and this morning went back and they told me there’s a small leakage on the top overhead gasket as they see some milky compound underneath my engine oil cap.

But he say I should be able to continue driving but I need to top up coolant every 2 weeks. If I want to resolve the issue , have to replace recon import engine at around $2000.
They never replace the gasket or check the block and head for alignment?

Hi myviowner, thanks. Actually I was referring to wrapping of dashboard etc.
Have you done the wrap ? I'm thinking to wrap dashboard too. Melted and sticky under sun.

How old is the car and mileage?

Perhaps get another opinion from a different workshop before confirming that the gearbox needs replacement?

Malaysians have the norm of using recon parts, hence the cost is lower. Singaporeans prefer brand new parts, hence high cost. So do bear that in mind when you compare prices.

Hi, we can't head into jb as of now and expect till early next year.
If your GB can wait, then i say is worth.
Generally , JAP and Korean should be cheaper. Plus prepare to leave car for couple of days at workshop.
Conti ride, the last time checked on the GB MU, is similar price compared doing it in SG.

Nope no time. And it’s really not that important so didn’t do it.
