But if your car got problem like recall or anything u know that u also can only deal with km?

Yes, if buy from KM, got recall die die must go back to KM.

If KM go bust, whichever company that bids for taking over as the AD should honor the warrantees and recalls of cars sold under KM. (I believe Honda JP will force them to do this before letting them become the new AD).



For me, my PI is direct importer, and has been handling recalls directly. No need to go through KM :D

If my PI goes bust, then will be headache. So buying from PI must do a lot more research. Get from reputable direct importers.

That how ad survive as they are actually representing the brand itself , with the most up to date tech and information and equipment of the car . Those knife is sharp as they can afford to . Heard from my mechanic outside , when I do car repair and buy oem parts , the parts number will be sent to ad for reference .
Everything ad do is based on manufacturer requirement and standard from show room , services to repair and servicing . Why Maserati ad go bust is because the show room requirement is too high and cost too much to maintain and such . But they hold all the power to remove your warrently

Not opt-in, but you can do something similar.
Basically, since you didn't buy from other direct importers, they do not have obligation to help.


Having said that, the reason they open a company is to make money. So you can pay them a fee to make it worth their while to lopang them to ship in the parts from their wholeseller in Japan. And can also lopang the PI's arranged workshop to do.


Also got ppl ownself arrange as well, but very headache coz of language issues.






Also, if PI got enough capital to direct import, means not small fry company that will easily go bust.

Usually oem parts must be bought from ad, or car manufacturers . But not all parts manufacturers will produce , example if your speaker is bose for your car made , so Bose will be the oem supplier for such . A lot of ppl car warrently been void is due to using of non oem crucial parts. Outside work shop can buy the oem parts from ad and manufacturers or dealer too .

Why are y’all making it sound like that’s a bad thing? AD handle recall is free what. And warranty is warranty, recall is recall. Even if AD void your warranty on whatever thing you do to your car, they also cannot void your eligibility for recall what.

Well, unless the recall part happens to be what you modified lar, but then that 1 should be understood, no? =:p

Side track abit...
For understanding purpose: Lets take Spark Plugs used in Toyota Altis.
If you go buy from BMS, thats a genuine part. In Toyota package. When you take out to see the actual products, there is a this name : Denso , printed on the body of the spark plug.
DENSO is the OEM supplier.

Then you go outside stockist, you asked for DENSO spark plugs, it will be in DENSO packaging.

Price from BMS could be twice or more expensive than those you bgt from stockist outside.

Product is the same, only in diff packaging.
Personally, product spec same same between Genuine and OEM.

Hopes that clears...:)

This is what it's supposed to be, yes.

But unfortunately, 9 out of 10 sellers of "OEM" products use the term to mean non-original-but-compatible product.

But some times ad got very good deal just that they don’t use those gimmick like no down payment , monthly only and such . When I buy my car , ad give me a whopping 30k discount compare to the listed price on sg car mart . And tons of freebie
Most pi or 2nd hand car dealer price their cars compare to ad they try to be lower then them by reducing items and such in the car .

hi guys,i need some advice.
i've just bought over a 2009 1.3 fit. i notice some strong "brakes" when im slowing down without stepping on anything. It kind of feels like engine brake from gear 3 to gear 1.

has it got anything to do with the CVT engine? or has anyone experienced it before?:s11:
