Hi bros,

Who goes to Hawk Tayar in JB for servicing? What do you all usually do?

Thinking of getting alignment and MTF change done. Notice there are several HTs around. They are like the AutoServe in Shell right?

Any recommended one? Please provide directions too....

Cheers!

Ocassionally frequent them. did my alignment for rm63 the last time. they did front and rear alignment and balancing off-wheel. one thing i dislike is the mechs there usually ask u want to change this or that, eg change gear oil or top up brake fluid which i don't need. Just say no and they are not persistant. you can sign up for the genting world card for rm5 there and collect points.

now i frequent the shell autoserv, 3-4 junctions before xtra if your from causeway. workshop cleaner and more organised.

Thats not the one. that one only has car wash facilities. The one im refering to is a Shell Autoserv workshop. Its along Jalan Tebrau, the same road that leads to Carrefour if you enter from causeway. Just keep a look out for a large blue building with the words Shell Autoserv on your left. and its not a petrol station, just a large workshop.
Hope it helps.

Yes they also do changing of parts.

Give them a call and ask for a quote.

I have been there twice for 1) brake problem 2) overheating problem and they have solved it for me. So I am quite satisfied with their service.

Actually there are quite a number of workshops in the area. But hark tayar is recommended by my frens so that is why i go there. If other place scared that I will get knife.gif . Anyway I see singapore cars coming in for service every time i have been there so i guess they are doing well and their customers are satisfied.

40k servicing shouldn't be a problem at these workshops eh? I'm worried that they aren't thorough with the checks.

Gimmegimme,

What checks do they do for 40k?

I took up and oil change package there and they had the simple check list of

1) brake fluid check
2) streering fluid check
3) radiator water check only

what they do is top up and when oil is change they go drive one round to see if car running ok.

I had to tell them my car problems for them to solve.

HAWK TAYAR is a chain of workshops.
Was told there are quite a few in Johor alone.
Other branches all over the Peninsular.

Some of the mechs may not be very knowledgable,
especially with Conti marques.
They do as told and do not make any recomendation,
even when asked. The simple answer is always,
if you want can install - referring to spark plugs, oils, etc.
They do take pride in whatever they do.

Once I during change of oil filter, the unit I brought in
was of the incorrect model. The mech took the trouble
to clean up the old filter with kerosene, water, blow dry,
then soak in Mobil One, blow dry again, then re-oil
before re-installing. All these extra work at NO additional
labour charge. The mech took it upon himself to do it
without the customer asking.

I'm not too sure what to look out for should I go for my 40k servicing, so here I would like to know what to look out for, or if they do have a 40k servicing package?

Surely you have your owner's manual/service book which your AD use during
the first visits to the workshop at 1K/5K/10K servicing? There should be a
table showing what to Inspect/Change/Top Up at periodic intervals/distance travelled.

The general rule of thumb when servicing in JB is to bring in the parts.
They are more costly there. If you need to change brake pads/disks,
wheel bearings, spark plugs, oils, fuel and oil filters, engine mount, etc, buy them from
your regular favourite spare parts shops at AV/Ubi/Sin Min before you
cross the causeway.

Telling the workshop mech to do a "40K servicing" will not do. You gotta be
more specific. It helps if you're driving a Proton. They know this brand inside out.
But for lesser known makes, especially European models, they're less confident.
