And the answer is...

DRUMROLL... πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯

Sorry, I've to crop away customer's particular cos it's confidential. Come, let's see how many people got it right! 

Congrats Patrick, you've won yourself a Nets FlashPay card with $20 stored value! Kindly email me your mailing address. πŸ˜„

Well well. To be frank, both brands are problematic cos both are from the same company what. Just that some particular models stand higher chances. It depends on how owners take care of their cars too. 

Being someone always on the road, I'll get paranoid when any warning signs pop out. I'm lucky to meet one ε†›εΈˆ, whereby I'll call him regardless any issue, my car or customer's car. 

He can tell me what's wrong with the car over the phone when I briefly explained the situation. And most importantly, he won't chop me, my customers and friends lah. 

(FYI, I don't earn a cent from introducing people there, but I'll help them to call first, out of goodwill! Sorry hor, I don't earn what I don't deserved.) 

I intro-ed many many people there, and none of them came back with a negative feedback! He's those ah, when it's not neccesary to change, he will tell you don't need. 

There was once hor, my car has this annoying screeching sound when I reverse. The first workshop when I happened to be there to meet a customer, told me it's tensioner belt, and I really went to change it. 

He quoted me $90 and I was like... ohh, cheap leh. Then after that I realised, he gave me a recon one. πŸ˜‘

However, the sound still didn't went off!!! Desperated, I just drove in to any workshop nearest to me, to check what happened. This time round, this workshop told me is power steering pump, and he quoted me $600+.

I called my ε†›εΈˆ and asked him to order power steering pump for me cos I know $600+ is way too overpriced. 

ε†›εΈˆ quoted me $400+ but he told me, "people say power steering pump then it's power steering pump meh, you come lah, I check for you!"

End up, it's only a bearing that caused the sound and it costed only $50!!!

That's the reason why I always tell people, "conti cars are not high maintenance, you just need to go to the right place."

Becos I realised, many mechanics are inexperienced, they just anyhow tell you to change this and that even when it's still usable, and if the problem is still there, they will ask you to change more things. That's how the bill rises up higher and higher! 😬

Anyway, there will be another Giveaway coming up very very soon. Watch this space or follow my FB page for more updates! ✌🏻
