Check that both oil have been changed when you collect your car. But to play safe, still better to get the oil change after you collect your car.

Ref point 2, the rear shock absorbers will cost more to replace, than engine and transmission oil. Probably $300 onwards inclusive of labour

Looks like you may have to change gaskets.

Shock absorber oil stain means it's about time to change too.

Test dive to check drive shaft by doing a figure of 8 , do you hear cluck cluck sound ?

For oil changes, it's better do your own , like Mobilelube said

It will be better if you can see full servicing record of the car. Most drivers here don't know that they need to change transmission oil and drive till over 100k km without changing it.

Just make sure the dealer do a proper job.

Change engine oil must include a new oil filter and transmission oil(ATF) sud b a through flush to change all the old oil out. Most wil just drain the transmission oil out n fill with new oil. This only changes abt half the ATF in the autobox but its much cheaper.

If it was me, I wil ask dealer for a discount n get it done properly myself at my own ws later.

U mean after the 1st inspection the engine n trans oil was changed then inspect again n found the oil leaks n drive shaft dust cover n rear shock absorber got oil leaks?

Engine sump n transmission housing might hv gaskets leaking n need to change. (Quite expensive). Changing oil sud not hv oil spill outside unless job was badly done.(Unlikely)

Driveshaft cover seems like torn n grease leak out. Need to change also.

Rear shock absorber oil stain means its worn n leaking oil. Also need to change both rear shocks.

So looks like quite a lot of things to change. Cud easily b >$1K for all to b rectified.

Play safe n get a $2K discount n get it done yourself.

Each WS has own overhead to cover, would vary somewhat.

If you haven't place deposit for this veh, you still can give it a pass. however if the dealer can give you a good discount, take it and have a 'wear n tear' parts change. That way you have a peace of mind for the next 3 or so years.

Not necessary, bro

Last month met up with an old friend. I brought up that I changed my water pump, timing belt and "Drive belt" for S$901.91 done at AD, conti car. He said was cheap as just this year he changed his Latio's water pump ( only ) and paid more than $900 for the change, also at AD.
