Do u service your car at the authorised service centers ?

I assume many of u bought your cars from agents and not parallel importers, so do u all sent your cars back to the agents and service centers for servicing all the time ? Or do u all go outside to service ? Haha







Mi got mine civic from Kah Motors den i went back to service with them like 3 times onli den i stopped gg back to service with them, when there the 1st 3 times so dat incase in future any warranty issues i can still go back claim. But now quite unlikely to go back tere as the more servicing u go, the more expensive it is as compared to outside and also mainly becoz the mechanics open mine bonnet they will be very confused coz of other mods. If i go back Agent they charge me $250 did not even change spark plugs, whereas I service outside $95 inclusive of changing all my spark plugs, oil filter change and engine oil.

1st 3 servicing go authorised agt, after that go outside service loh. Reason: Cheaper, better (agt v crappy), faster, more personalised service!

Re: Do u service your car at the authorised service centers ?

I stay away from agent also.. heard some not so good stories from these kinda workshops as well.

Normally for 5000km service, i get my oil from giant then bring down to workshop and just pay for the labor and filter, total cost is under $90.

If need to replace any others like sparkies or brake pads..
case by case basis and I try to find the stuff by myself either from forum classified or distributors, rather than let the workshop do it.

Re: Do u service your car at the authorised service centers ?

Most probably do because of 1 main reason: warranty.

Some car parts can be really expensive and so don't want to take risk of voiding warranty by not going servicing at authorised agent.

Just curious sng, why did you say "went there the 1st 3 times so that in case in future any warranty issues i can still go back claim"? Did anyone at KM tell you so? Once you skip any servicing interval your warranty is void already, warranty from KM is valid provided you go for all the intervals up to 100,000km. Do go read the conditions, KM not so stupid let customer claim warranty just because they went for first 3 visits then later don't know what they do to the car
