Anyone know if its worth going to JB to replace a gearbox for Toyota harrier? Recently gear seems to b giving problem. Singapore quoted around $4k!!!
There are a few gearbox specialist workshop charging $800 on carou. Check it out.

Surprised Harrier has GB issues already. Isnít it quite new?

Nope no time. And itís really not that important so didnít do it.
ah ok. i think its about 1 to 1.5k rm from what i read online.

googled and read that sticky dashboard seems like common issue for some toyota / lexus cars. in the US, they are doing foc replacement.
anyway, i will try BM first and see what they say about this issue.

hi bro thanks for sharing.

bm responded that coverage is 10 years only. mine unfortunately past 10 years. and even within 10 years is case by case basis and have to request and appeal. apparently this problem is common for Toyota and Lexus but not commonly reflected to Singapore public. so if new models still have this problem I will take that into consideration for new purchase.

anyway for altis ride I got quote 3.5k for front dashboard only. order time is 2 months. downtime at ws is 1 day.

Gearbox recon is $2 to $3k. Half cut from Japan is around $1.5K. Johor half price.

Have you done the wrap ? I'm thinking to wrap dashboard too. Melted and sticky under sun.
Wrap cost $600 including the door panel.

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.
My workshop service can be done in 10mins lol. Half a day because work faster harder also same pay so slowly slowly...

anyone go AD workshop in malaysia before to fix their car??
I recommend only big ticket items go JB fix. Like gearbox...spray paint..small items forget it...dont save much...and hassle.

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.
When is your issue? Coolant low? Gasket leak?
