Wow.
Thanks for sharing.
Yes. Care to share which workshop n how much? And also the down time they took etc?
Thanks!
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.

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.

Wah that is super cheap. Unless the mechanic marked up the costs of oil, ATF, filters etc.

I bought the parts in sg including engine oil and then brought over...10yo kia forte, many things start to breakdown. rike aircon leaks, engine mountings, ignition coils.

not much of a review, cos the eo and atf change job was pretty straight forward.

the mechanic used a pump to remove the old atf which was brownish-black. then poured in the new pinkish-purple fluid by hand...removed drain plug below the engine, then filled new eo by hand. all this was done without ramping up the car lol...then he drove to a level ground and check all the dip sticks...
