    majority of 3S -shops of ALL brand names are CON centres in northern Pakistan. selected outlets are exceptional cases. In Karachi those centres carefully skin the customer but no HONEST either.

    I remember my GLI estimate for 195,000+ in Islamabad by Toyota for a burn out smudged engine and after bringing car to KHI and Genuine parts from UAE all done to my peace was less then 125,000 car is back in Capital with fuel average of 16Km / litre in winter days.

    The trick is to get your required jobs done. If you tell them 40,000 or 80,000 check up then they would ask you change everything. I told them to do the break service, tighten the undercarriage bolts and check suspension, drive belts, fluid levels, condition etc. Since the car is running on CNG from 32,000 kms onwards I told them not to do any tuning. Engine Oil and filter I get them replaced from outside (as no big job that requires special tools). Tuning: My car never needed it so far. Since day one I have not let them fiddle with it as it is giving 14km/lit in city and 17-19 on highway and 235-250kms on CNG.

    Job done today:

    All bolts undercarriage were tightened, suspension checked. (did not charge anything and I paid just 600 rs for full break service and rest of the jobs were not charged)

    They showed me the front disc pads and said that those would be good for another 5,000 or more but I told them to put new ones. Cost 4,200 rupees.

    Then they checked the belts and showed me the cracks have started appearing on the inner side of alternator belt. They said that it would be working well for a long time, but you never know. So I also got it changed and it cost just 780 rupees.

    Balancing, alignment I get from outside.

    I heard the svc guy telling another customer that 40,000 km interval for replacement of all fluids was due to hard driving and road conditions and weather in Pakistan. When the customer said that it is not written in manual, he said that manual is for "ideal conditions."

    I checked the manual and it says that gear oil should be changed if the car toes a trailer of camper or is driven very slow in lower gears (by police patrol etc).

    1. You are never sure it is original, first copy or recycled you are buying at the price of original

    2. Toyota workshops have complete tool kits for specific cars and would not ruin your nuts and screws with a hammer and paitch kass.

    Labour charges are not much at 3S as compared to roadside workshops. In just 600 they did full break services, under carriage and suspension check, replaced front disc pads, replaced alternator belt. Once they charged just 400 rupees for a three-hour job to repair the steering. But peace of mind is there, plus the part you buy from outside have no warranty, but 3S parts have six months warranty.

    They sort of scared me with one recent incident in which a car owner opted for repair from outside electrician and ended up burning the entire wiring and the repair-replacement cost went up to 250,000 rs. I told them you are scaring me to get the part replaced and they say I was free to make a choice.

    Another guy there was being told that first remove the CNG, then we will touch your car, not that they do not take CNG fitted cows, but that guys cow's backfire problem was chronic due to faulty CNG set up.

    The svc guy told me that it was quite normal, the combo switch lasts some 50-60K kms. But I suspect the guy who replaced my fog light switch in Pindi, Sadar last year. He too blew a fuse located in the glove compartment.

    you are supposed to change the rubber brake lines about every 100,000 kms. They swell up internally and cause loss of brake bite. You are also supposed to change the trans oil every 45,000 kms or 2 years.

    Its called preventive maintenance - but as you said it was your previous car you just passed on the problem to the next owner.

    Default Update:

    Car is driven 135,000Kms now and getting regular preventive maintenance and In the mean time it got a new clutch, bushes, bearings....
    So Toyota says suspension is ok and does not need any change but ride quality has deteriorated and I think it needs a change, how can it be determined and what criteria does Toyota follow
    other Few problems which have evolved are
    1) The dash board squeak as if some screw has fell or is loose.
    2) driving side window does not roll up properly and glass lost its alignment.

    and suggestions?
