Recommendation: Reliable workshops in JB
 
Hi guys,

My mileage is reaching 90k soon and major servicing is up.
Can anyone recommend a reliable workshop in JB?
Thanks

what car you driving?
can try Crystal Auto at Kampung Melayu Majidee (about 10mins from CIQ)
did all my servicing there. even left my carens for 2 days there cos of temperature issues.
can bring your own stuff there and just pay labour.

I'm driving a lancer CS3. Do you have the persons contact details? pm me if you can. i've been to TT Motorsports to repair my suspension. The service was normal but the owner keeps on hard selling stuffs that i don't need.

browse through most car forums but they usually talk abt modding/tuning..

Depends - if you bring own stuff for normal servicing (Oil, filter, etc), labour charge between RM20-30.

Wont hard-sell cos they are just normal honest workshop. If they cant do, they say they cant rather than dismantle here n there.

I checked mine before.
Changing engine mount for mine (a Honda too), the labour cost may not be cheaper or just slightly cheaper compare to get it done in SG.

So do your own homework where is much more reasonable.

Of course can get your engine mounting from Honda's stockist.

thuhtetthiha27 30-06-2014 12:30 PM

Thanks AL5509,
Any recommend workshop in SG? How much they charged u for your Honda? i asked one workshop in SG. they asked me for 700+

Check SKM.
Their labour cost is actually just slightly higher (less than $50) compare to JB workshop wor.

And as far as I understand, a friend of mine changed one 1 mounting for his honda's 1.8 civic thou.

My shock got problems like broken when go over hump gets better after warm up.

Roughly how much to fix? I scared fix local chop carrot. Also got some vibrations on my exhaust think it's just screw came out. So either screw bk or need some welding.

fibojello 01-07-2014 11:04 AM

Can pay by credit card or need pay RM...


During car service where u all go?

Is it safe to leave car there?

danielkok 01-07-2014 12:35 PM

Can go to the workshop at the Shell station at Taman Sri Tebrau. Won't con you. But go early, there is usually a crowd. After leaving your car there, you can go makan brunch. After settling your car, might as well pump fuel and wash the car there.

And they take credit cards too.

Cc5 is MIM. Stated on the wheels itself

Went to swee hing and change my tyres. It's opposite e hawk Tayar at taman sentosa

Tyres r rm220 each for my 195/50 r15. Made in week 48, 2013. Include balancing and wheel alignment. They took my car for a test drive twice. Not sure if that's e usual practice though

Changed from Bridgestone pontenza tires which was noisy.

Tyres feel good. (Which new tyres doesn't?) below 40km/h, there's abt 80% reduction in road noise (especially going over those school zone). Going over rough patches in the e'way and I feel the road noise was reduced by abt 50%

Fuel consumption wise, no comments yet. But I felt more inclined to push the accelerator harder coz with new tyres, it just accelerate easier.

Compared to a set of toyo tyres which I changed for my ex ride, i feel it's almost identical for road noise. Comfort wise, definitely better than my pontenza (already a 3 yr old tyres)

Haven tried in wet condition yet. But for rm220 (sgd88 based on exchange 2.50), I feel it's pretty good

Probably gonna try the Michelin xm2 on my nx ride. Let's c how it goes.

Just did my servicing and replacement of parts with Jet auto
A Honest and friendly chap i must say, when i met him, he drive my 07 Fit around the place to find out the problem of my car.
We had a chat in the Car, he say that he's with KAH Motor for 6 years, and quit because he find it very xiong to go in and out of custom everyday.
At 1st i abit worry about puting my car in his care while i go do my thing, but he assure me that's its ok, as he will be jacking the car high up, and mention that most of his customer put the car in his ws and went fishing.
So i put the purge and leave the car to him, while he ask his brother to drive me to near by the store to watch movie or do some shopping.

for the price of the service, we had already agreed on the price of things to change in whatapps, his number remain unchange
before commencing on the job when Jet look through my parts, he say an idle valve, i told him i need it to solve my vibration problem, he say dont need, just replace mounting will do.
instead of straight away n go ahead to change and charge me for a fee to do the job, he ask me to ask for refund from the stock list.
here's the list of job i ask him to do

do coolant flush
change gear box oil - i give you my HMMF oil
change 2 behind shock absorber - i give parts
change all engine mounting - parts i provide
Change fan belt - parts i provide
Change Brake oil

Total work took more than 4 hours, and he really give me a very good price, which i feel abit Pai seh also.

And i promise to spread his good words around.
anyway he also have lobang and shares with other WS which do accessories and grooming, if you need any of these, you and go through him and the WS can give you a good price on that.

before its his shopfront and name card, do make a call before going down, when i was there, there was a oby coming in later, heng i was 1st to reach there so he gg wait for me lol.
