So-so. You should stay around to watch...and refuse any other repair/replacement which will cost a bomb.

You mean they will recommend repair/replacement even if it is unnecessary?

I tried their service before. Basic servicing is all right but parts replacement is quite expensive

Yup. Actually...you can go any where for basic servicing. For repair go to the trusted ones. For me, I'll save the trouble and go to the trusted ones....for both.

Thanks for all the replies. I guess MotoGuard is one of the workshops to avoid then. How about Autodynamac at Ubi Road 1?

Sorry for asking so much, cause looking for a good workshop to replace timing belt for my Ford Focus. Not easy to replace the timing belt.

For major servicing like timing belt, etc.. I suggest you find our from fellow Ford owners which are the workshops that are familiar with the make. Some workshops will take the opportunity to charge you an arm and a leg...just cos it's a conti car...somethings that is less common on the road. They may not even be able to do a good job even after the eguhe bill.

A good workshop is Riverview Auto at AMK Autopoint. I always trust them with my vehicles. My fren sent in his Ford Laser for 80K servicing which includes changing of timing belt, water pump, etc. Oh, and oso changing of battery. Costs him ard $700+, RM would be ard $1200 if I remembered correctly. sweatdrop.gif

RV is not that cheap but their worksmanship and customer service is definitely there. Good things dun come cheap I guess.

You can go to those workshop that is cheap but worksmanship might by shoddy. In the end, gotta go back and rectify...waste of time and effort. shakehead.gif

Yes, in full view. You can stay at your vehicle if you like. Hell, you can even helped the mechanic to pick up his spanner or wrench if you want to. laugh.gif ...which I do that sometimes.

Be careful - do ask them for a breakdown of their service menu or they will charge any o how. I was shocked that a BASIC servicing for my Forte hit $350/- today. WTH. and not even a complimentary carwash with that price. Serves me right : (
