worst repair experience
« on: October 28, 2010, 01:36:02 pm »
please post the name and location of t he shop.

Rapide Magallanes

#1

nagpaayos kami ng ball joints 2 beses kami tumirik sa manila so tumawag kami ng marunong sa kotse tinignan niya yung baba without his knowing na nagpaayos kami ng ball joints sabi hindi maganda ang pagkakalagay. so tinawagan namin ang Rapide Magallanes dahil palpak gawa nila 3,000 din ginastos nila sa tow. basta palpak alam ko lang mga reasons kung bakit hindi maganda pagkakalagay is because hindi compatible sa modelo ng kotse or kung saan saan lang siguro nila napulot yung ball joints na sinaksak nila sa kotse namin.


#2

hindi nadala si mother pinadala pa din sa same shop we are supposed to replace the headlight and they said na sira ang fuse laging pumuputok so we have to leave it their so the technician will repair it (no technician that time). to find out also what is the cause sabi ko sa mom ko "no" so we went to another auto repair service okay na lahat napalitan na ang headlight and there was no other problem like the Rapide is saying walang 5 minutes okay na. kaso hindi maliwanag ang ilaw yun pala hindi binalik ng Rapide mechanic yung fuse.

we also know someone who spent 13,000 in that shop hinanapan ng problem ayon naloko sila kung alam lang nila ang internet maybe they were given warning agad.

Be careful, go to trusted mechanical shops kasi some really just make money out of it para bumalik ka sakanila. Some switches your plugs, etc.to other cars and exchange an old one to yours para mapagkitaan nila. Ako, I trust Minerva Tire Gallery in Westgate, Alabang. :)

^Stay away from Rapide. Would you believe mas mahal pa sila sa casa? And hahanapan talaga nila ng sira yung kotse.

So far ok naman ang Speedyfix. I know the owner. Although I also notice mahal nga ang charge nila. Similar din sa casa price which is my benchmark. Service is pretty good.

For those of you who want to save on maintenance, try Exalta Auto Parts and Service. Its in Banawe. Reasonable labor charges. Complete set of tools. They have an engine scanner if you want to have your car checked for errors.
