Posted 08 June 2007 - 10:27 AM

Recently, I had the (mis)fortune of having to have 2 vehicles repaired after my delightful family had decided to 'save' money by hiring mechanics to 'repair' motor difficulties. Upon returning home from a long sojourn in the provinces, I discovered that both vehicles were misfiring and their automatic transmissions were not shifting gears, as well as a severe lack of power coming from the motor.

I took them to the casa, (Honda for the Honda, Diamond Motors for the Mitsubishi), both casa's gave similar diagnosis, full overhaul of engine, transmission, etc. etc. With bills exceeding 60T each. Dismay set in, but a friend told me to bring it to his motor shop.

I took the honda and brought it there, he tinkered with it for about half an hour then told me to try the car. It worked, full power, no misfiring, and most important of all, it shifted gears. It turns out that the timing belt was misaligned. Cost of repairs? 1500 bucks (he also had to replace the spark plugs). Same thing with my mitsubishi.

What is it with the casas? They had the cars for 2 full weeks and they couldn't check the timing belt?

This serves as a warning to all of you, always get a second and a third opinion.

Thanks for sharing.

But, can you share with us the motorshop where you brought your honda to be fixed?

Thanks in advance.

There are a lot of good repair shops now since most mechanics from these shops were mechanics from different Car Manufacturers here and also outside the country.

I've heard good feedbacks from shops like H3 Autoworks which specializes on Honda cars. :)
You could try to visit them and have them diagnose your car.

Not sure with Mitsubishi though.

If you do have problems with a Toyota, I could refer you to shops that excel when it comes to repairs or upgrades such as Autotech in Quirino Ave. , Total Tuning Team in Bautista, TFACTORY in Antipolo, DMF Motorsports Alley in Katipunan, and a lot more. :)

Autoplus on EDSA

Matonetiks on Banawe

They are regulars on the racing scene. Di ka nila lolokohin, but expect to pay the price. Pero lahat naman ganun ang binayad:D

Agree, Autoplus along EDSA

Matonetiks...Wala na yata si Mato sa Banawe, ang alam ko he moved dun sa street sa likod ng Heartbeat/Wilderness.
