I bought my car more than a year ago. Quite happy with my Avante 1.6S, as it did not give me any problems so far.

As Komoco can void my 3 yrs warranty if I go to other workshops, I have no choice but to purchase their spa package after the 3rd servicing.

I sent my car for the 20,000Km servicing today, thinking I need not pay further. But I am wrong! I'm poorer by $231.70! They told me that I need to change my air-con filtering (~$60) and my car battery (~$170). Air-con filter change is fair enough but my car battery is barely 1+yr. I wonder if I'm being "ripped" off.

Thinking of going to other workshops for the next servicing, which I heard should be at least 50% less than what Komoco charges. Is the break of last year warranty worthwhile the risk? Also, any "recommended" workshops that specialise in Hyundai Avante?

Hey Dude ,

Sorry long time did not logged in . This is normal Scare - Tactics form Komoco .. I guess it will be the same from other make too . I always bring my parts in during warranty period and they will make a fuss that warranty void and that . Whatever .. the way they charge the parts is like legal robbery . My Trajet Air-con filter :cost S$25 from Veerasamy but can cost more than double there .

Go ahead and try : bring yr Oil filter ; Air filter ; etc and see their face . If you are handy : chg yr Air and Air-con filter yourself . Feel good and cheap .

Now my Trajet is 5yr + .... parts from Ming ghee ... service in JB ! Save a bomb .


Cheers

So is it ok to go servicing outside Komoco after the first 3 servicing? Will the 100k/3yrs warranty be void because of this?

Yes, agree...scare tactics for Komoco. Me too did not went for the regular service after the first 3 free. But to be fair to Komoco, maybe you can get them to service once a year...:D
