Currently using Honda Jazz 2015 model and planning to find a regular car service at JB. Say that Sheng auto is most recommended. Can i just do a walk in? or Need to book for appointment?

I texted honda AD in malaysia for servicing and they say that they dont allow to service singapore cars. Is that true?

Thanks a bunch

The one I went is near Giant Plentong. Although I can get there but dunno the address.

Other than changing belt, what other services are u looking for? If I did before, can let u know how much I paid so can use that as ref and find a similarly priced WS. Avoid WS too near the custom, try areas like Dedap, Rosmerah, Permas Jaya etc

I'm driving a Hyundai and usu bought my parts from stockist or online, go to the north for labor charges only. If car is more atas, labor charges may differ..
Can I know the location through screen shot? Or a pointer nearby cafe or makan place ?

Sheng Auto is mainly for car accessories and car air con repair. Not for the usual body repair or engine oil change.
They just shifted to a bigger premises not too far from their current shop. Yes, appointment is recommended as many SG cars are heading to him. Am going there tml. If you need check about accessories, PM me. I can help you check with him.
Else call/whatsapp Jackson directly: +60167035250

For mechanical repairs and maintenance servicing, refer to my earlier post on that workshop i usually goes to workshops at Permas Jaya. Concept is like Sin ming in SG.

I roughly know where he meant as i also frequent Giant Plentong. There isn't a nearby cafe. What i can suggest to you is GPS to Giant Plentong, then explore from there.

Regular car servicing in Johor is comparable in cost to the cheaper workshops in Singapore ~ SGD 60.

Only the repairs are significantly cheaper due to lower labour costs and if they also stock the parts e.g. for Toyota and Honda.

Depends where which area you go. Labour cost is cheaper over there.
Let me give you an example: Non- conti cars. For regular service, EO and filter. Parts bring ownself, labour in SG oredi like $30-$50.
In JB, is RM30-RM50.

Cheapest regular servicing in SG: $33.30. EO change and OEM Filter and all the safety checks. This workshop still running. They use locally blended EO. Brand not popular. For COE ride, drivers may consider to use.
For newer rides, drivers may not consider.

PS: The key point here is the EO chosen. 5W30, TRD Motul EO with OEM filter, RM300. (Quoted to me last week) Let me know if any SG workshop can offer this price. After conversion is less than SGD$100. (Rate was 3.15, last week)

Also, please don't say, aiyo, the time and jam and the toll fee. Please exclude all these factors.

Thats the only one i have. Probably, you have drive down to the JB shop. Or you contact this guy whom used to be the sales person of this shop. Last talked to him was apr 2022. He has left the shop to set up his own, mainly rework on steering wheel wrapping. He told me could link up with the cushion shop if i need.

Alvin: +60 12 7179317.
