No more free servicing liao for my Sylphy, going for 20k servicing soon.

Can I check with those with the experience here if I am able to bring my own oil filter & air filter?

How much can I save by doing so?

Their servicing package is inclusive of the oil and filter.    The oil is in-house brand FasFlo.

 

I don't think there is any meaningful reduction in price from the package, if owner bring own oil/filter.    

 

I agree that their servicing package is quite alright, and transparent.  All info available in TC website.

As a proud car owner, its not simply about the cost of oil and filter for me to save on, i rather bring own oil, save on the costs, and use the savings to get superior oils, not just brand wise, but with transparent specsheets on the contents added, flow rate etc etc

this one common sense, but uncommon...

 

$$$, cash cards, credit cards....

 

I even remove GPS last time.  [laugh]

 

For everyone's sake.... Serious.... Think of others also. Imagine if you're the service centre staff and kena accuse of "stealing".... for which you have not done. [bigcry]

Me also going for servicing in few months time.

 

First " paying " service, for the NPMP, do we sign up when dropping the car or after servicing when paying at the counter?

 

Thank you

I am also driving B17 Sylphy. Next servicing is the free 10k servicing. will need to top up about 60 for the syn oil instead of mineral oil. I already have the npmp all the way till 50k, which will incl syn oil. the free servicing at 1k, 5k and 10k only incl mineral oil. I always bring my own oil when servicing my old car at kah motor. heard tan chong in house oil is good so will give it a try this time. mine is turbo engine btw. dont know should go for higher friction oik?

so far the servicing experience is ok. i dont like the waiting format where u stand and wait around for service advisor. prefer to have a queue number like kah motor.

Thank you

You can decide to sign up or not when collecting the car.

You can also pay the current service package and next servicing, you decide to sign up.

They have no problem.

You can also go outside to try, remember to ask them the update your maintenance book and then go back TC 6 months later, they will let you sign up.

This was what my service advisor told me. The free servicing at 1,5,10k comes with mineral oil. You can opt for syn oil but need to top up $60. I am not sure whats the price difference between typical mineral and syn oil cos I had been buying syn oil only.

 

For 10k, I would prefer to use syn oil as the next interval is 10k away. 

I think I will ask them if there is any charges if I bring my own oil.

Can I check with those with the experience here if I am able to bring my own oil filter & air filter?

How much can I save by doing so?

 

my 2 cents as I owned 3 Nissans before.  2 used and 1 brand new.  The latest was N16FL which I kept for 8 years since new.  Nissan cars are pretty reliable.  No problems for the 1st 8 years....only normal wear and tear like brake pads, battery, tyres, etc etc. 

 

I was given 7 free servicings IIRC, after that I dont bother to send to TCM anymore.  Outside w/s much cheaper...my mech allows me bring own oil...so normal service only cost 40-50.

 

Since jap cars are very reliable in general.  Just service regularly and they should serve you well for many years.

 

hope this helps.

i brought my own oil for my Teana and there is a deduction of $90 from the total servicing bill.

I use Castrol Edge with Titanium which i think is far superior compared to their in house oil brand....
