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.

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

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...

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?

long time no go jb, washing car has become my monthly exercise unfortunately..

on a side note, anyone knows the cost of changing/refurbishing their suspension in JB for a small jap car? getting tired of crawling over humps as the car bottoms out easily

Get someone to wash for you lor. :s13:

Contact a few workshops in Singapore for price comparison, since we won't be allowed into JB for rest of the year, at least. My one cent view.
Or wait sammychan to read your post.

Your 1 cent view is also my view. Hope the vaccine is out soon.
