12 points check means checking other parts of your car such as your brake fluid level, radiator water level, transmission fluid, blah blah blah. Normally the mechanics don't check. Just a marketing gimmick.

Price is pretty resonable. How long will depends on when you send your car, best is when they just open for biz at around 11pm. Otherwise you will be in the queue and sometimes can be a few hours.

I usaully go to the bukit batok one, very busy, and the lounge CMI, nothing in there just a few sofa. I usaully leave my car there and go back to my office as it's nearby, and go back to collect it later.

However, I do feel bringing the car to a smaller workshop, the service is much more personal, the mechanic can remember your car and what he has done to it before. But my mechanic close shop so I LL send my car to autobac as not sure which workshop is good.

i think if u buy toyota now..they offer new customers an option to change engine oil at $90 every visit.

actually, its just change of engine oil, drain and refill...so i dont see why autobacs or anyone doing it will be bad. its sld be a basic skill for technician.

5 months ago, when I purchased this 2nd hand Altis. 1 week before its warrenty was over, went over to BM.. Somehow they managed to persuade me to pay over $3XX on servicing.. Crap.

BM servicing is really crap.Everytime I go,neva fail to disappoint me.UBI and Leng Kee branch all the same.After talking to a colleague of mine who own a Civic before,now a Insight,he said Kah Motor servicing much cheaper,the most 200 plus for major servicing.BM charged 368 for major servicing,everything tick and tick.don't know got check a not.I heard Tan Chong not bad,my uncle Cabstar now 40k on odo,send in still free servicing.

Cleaning by flushing alone is not too good when overdone. Flushing if not wrong only for certain mileage only. Dun keep on flushing flushing and flushing everytime until your engine go kaput. More important to have regular oil change at half yearly interval at least even if mileage is low. Extended oil change interval is bull crap in Singapore context. Only believe in this if you are on long distance driving.
