Hi people,
was just wondering if anyone could recommend a good car service workshop in Subang Jaya. I mean erm ... cheap and efficient. There are so many shops around and I can't possibly go to each and everyone of them to try out their service. So erm ... I would really appreciate it if you guys could give me some good recommendations.
Thanks in advance. cheerz.

P/S: Sorry if i posted on the wrong forum but then i can't find the auto section!??!

Sorry I dont have the address with me now :)
His name is Ah Loong (012 296 0093).

Drive thru federal highway and exit at sungaiway....go straight along the shops until you reach the police station junction (at the sungaiway market), turn right, about 120m down the road, just after the furniture store, on your left, the first workshop, is his...he runs it along with his brother (Ah Leong), who does bodyworks...

You could mention my name (VJ)...

For past few years, I have been buying spare parts myself before sending to the workshop. Noting your location, suggest you check out the parts shop in SS14 next to Caltex. They also can suggest workshop or you could check around for your preferred mechanic.

Just be careful of this yellow workshop at USJ 1/6c, bad work and refused to compensate for the new drive shaft changed that had problem. Shouted at me instead of talking properly.

Frustrated with nasim long queue for car service, I went to a shop in ss14. They changed oil and oil filter pretty fast. 2 weeks later, car was leaking oil. Have to take to Nassim Peugeot in Glen Marie. I think they did not replace the o ring for the oil filter, that would have cracked and leaked. Very disappointed with these shop lot mechanics. What are your experience?

I think these sort of problem happens everywhere including manufacturer's service center. Early this year got a scare after normal service + aircond service in Glenmarie . After 4 or so days somewhere in the Maran stretch on ECP to K. Terengganu ...the bottom plastic engine cover partly came off and scratch the tarmac while driving at only 90+ kmh . Limping to the next stop and found out that these flers at the service center didn't tightened the undercarriage nuts properly ......:eek: :eek:

Replacing the oil filter in the correct manner to just about any modern car is the most basic essential and easiest skill they've learnt in servicing any car. If some idiot cannot do that properly, he is either drunk or smoking something and dismissed for can't even perform the most basic of jobs. In many car owner manuals, replacement of oil and filter is often regarded as owner DIY chore. If its not, it won't be spelled out in owner manual.

I suspect that they hire half-baked foreigners with no basic education to do things.

Nowadays, you can see many foreigners doing things they are not supposed to do.

That's why I always try to have a small talk with the workers to find their skill level before I decide to use their service.

Even locals are poorly-skilled nowadays.

Well...just a call to the center detailing/complaining what happens to their standards... Hard to lambast that poor , not because of her work, PYT at the other end la....
Fortunately this handyman have all the tools to locate the loosened plastic screw which is still hanging to the undercarriage plastic cover and solve that problem.
