    My first servicing bill

    To all bros, i just googled online for the car WS that i went to, they seem pretty reputable and reliable, and all along it has been said that their pricing is reasonable, did i really kenna chop? The WS is Hu*t Le* which specialises in japanese and korean cars. I'm sure most of you know which WS this is. From the VOGS forum this WS is also one of the most popular ones to go to for their servicing. They are also stated to be the top WS on sgcarmart for repair and servicing, listed as a recommended merchant, most number of positive reviews, pricing wise reasonable and very honest. I am very confused. Seems like what i read from search results on this forum, sgcarmart, and VOGS is contradictory to what i am reading from all your replies in my own thread? The problem is that the previous owner didn't have any servicing records so it's very frustrating as well for me. Not an expert in this field so really need the advise of you all experienced car owners. I was also watching when they were servicing my car, and saw that they used original toyota parts for my car. It's just that the price i paid took me back by surprise for such a reputable WS, and all my friends claim that i kenna chop.

    My first servicing bill

    Hi all, some change highlighted in bold just bought a 2nd hand 2.5 year old axio with 50k mileage and recently send the car to a highly recommended workshop for servicing the bill went to 735 sgd... not sure if it was worth the $$, please advise if i was overcharged standard service (change of engine oil to motul 5w30) w/ FOC balancing of tyres and handbrake = 130 engine oil filter = 30 Orginal toyota CVT transmission oil = 110 original air filter = 35 coolent change = 65 engine flush = 25 aircon flush (change ofcompressor oil and top-up of aircon gas) = 160 change of front tyres = 2 x 90 = 180 - it was claim that the CVT oil used by the previous owner is not tht correct one, with potential damage to the gear box. The mechanic "smell" the oil and say that the oil dont seems to smell like the the original CVT oil - the aircon "oil" was low and if we did not top-up, the compressor will spoilt and will cause 600 sgd easily. hence they recommended a aircon flush with coolent top-up - the front tyres was more worn out compared to the rear tyres and we change the front tyres, (although i heard that we could easily swap the front tyres with the rear so as to increase the life span of the tyres)
