Hi Members,

I m unfamiliar with KM servicing hence i hope the experienced folks here can help answer some questions, short of calling them direct and getting templated answers.

I m driving a frd's FD in his absence, and the car is due for 20k servicing.

1) KM policy of allowing own oil to be brought?
2) 1.8L FD uses 4L or 5L engine oil?
3) what entails 20k servicing and estimate costs?
4) To leave car for entire day and come back later? What is the norm?


Many thanks

1) Yes, u can bring yr own engine oil
2) Shld be 4L
3) 20K is basic servicing. refer to the price list http://www.honda.com.....rice List.pdf
4) depends on which workshop u goes to. from my experience, at Mandai usually can settled in abt 1hr+

Thank you for the prompt reply TOYO, that was in record time!

Shall check out Mandai then, to minimise time disruption.

no problem, i'm just sharing my experience. Leonard from Mandai svc ctr gave me very good service thumbsup.gif
I had tried Ubi too but i feel they were not as efficient, probably because they had more cars to service.

They have Redline, Royal Purple. I'm using Motul 5W30
Do call them before you go down.
There are many places you can buy oil filter but i suggest u dun. lets say after the servicing for some reason the engine oil leaks, the workshop might blamed the oil filter u bought sweatdrop.gif i had heard of such cases

Many thanks


I'm driving FD also.
Must call to make an appointment. Normally 3 to 4 working days from the day u call.

1)I dun bring own oil. Sorry I dunno. tongue.gif But can always callup to enquire.
2)4L
3)oil change, oil filter change, some checks, tyre balancing and rotation, no different from 10k km servicing.
4)If sent in the morning b4 lunch time can collect.

Estimated cost depends on your oil change. The rest is similar to outside workshop rate ie balance front tyres 10$. As for labour, slightly more than outside but not much. I request to wash the rims b4 balancing and they did it without extra charge.

I just did my 30k km. I dun remember much on 20k. If u really want detail have to wait till tonight I get home to see the receipt. Cos at 20k km I also ask them to groom my car hence I dun recall the others.
The chosen one will bring balance to the Force...I mean Singapore. Even star wars do not reserve "the chosen one" to a sith lord or a jedi or a wookie.

Hmm... differing replies about engine oil.

Yeap I have heard about using mineral till 10K, and I suppose KM will use Shell Helix Syn for 1K. Guess I have to leave the answer to the advisor and not take any chance for the time being. Thanks all.

Great experience doing my 1K servicing at KM Leng Kee.

Checked in at 9:19am. Was greeted at the door by Honda staff as he guided me to the reception. Brought in my own engine oil (Shell Helix Ultra 5w40) and Service Advisor Sam gave me a run-down of what is needed for 1K - Oil Change (Synthetic) and Air-filter change.

Free coffee whilst waiting. Internet available as well, not forgetting a chance to check out the Honda showroom as it is in the same building. Nice, airy air-condition comfort! Free bus transfer available to go to Queenstown MRT. Decided to take the time to run my errands nearby.

As promised they fixed up the scratch on my film (discovered during new car collection).

Check out at 1pm with a bill of $33 for the oil filter and labour. Going to get K&N filter before 11K servicing (to be installed on my own).

Typical Japanese systematic approach, that's what I really like, plus good service, comfortable setting (after years of greasy workshops!). I am glad I bought from an AD.

I always go KM jurong, the one inside shell petrol station, no such service like free coffee, internet, etc due to space constraint. But the service advisor service very gd like what u mention.
