if your very much familiar with your car it is much better to bring your own parts instead in case you know the cause but it should be oem (original equipment manufacturer) or much better aftermarkets...oem parts could be purhased in Pasay rtd. near LRT edsa the shops that i do recommend are Carpower,Partstar (for japanese autos) because they sell original or replacement parts....at a a very affordable price and this are the suppliers of many CASAS like Bathala (a.k.a. Carsavers),Rapide....dont get overpriced by these casas go direct to supplier itself

overcharged po talaga pricing nila.
minsan kahit hindi naman yung ang ipapaayos mo
magrerecommend pa sila.

nagpapalinis lang ako ng aircon before
nag quote:

replace freon
replace drier
replace exp valve
replace evap? - huh?

price - for evap 14k
total services - 18k?????
sobra naman

Dapat you should ask for an estimate or quotation at least three to five shops...keep in mind that
you should always consider the quality of the service and the price that you are paying for.....

went to rapide shaw. ok service. you just have to know more or less what is problem with the car so that they would not keep on replacing parts not needed.

stay away from Rapide. I know how to repair cars and I tried going to Rapide to verify if they are really over pricing and quoting problems that are not really problem/s of your car. went there once with my 2002 civic, I intentionally adjusted the suspension system in order for it to crank which means I just need to tighten and adjust it in order for it to be fixed... guess what was quoted.. I myself can't believe it, it says that I need to replace the whole suspension system of my car which will cost me P25,600! hahaha went home laughing and saying that Rapide is really FOS. Full of s@%t. Ha ha ha!

Even if my car's suspension system is broken, the price in your normal auto shops or Banawe is 60% lesser than what they quoted.

Save your money for more important things such as f#&king hot girls. Stay away from Rapide.

Try visiting the usual auto enthusiast forums and you'll get tons of horror stories on Rapide. Sites like autoindustriya and Kotse.com to name two.

It seems that they have quota system where they must average a certain amount of pesos per car they do.

If one car did not meet the quota, they have to make bawi with the other clients.

They have come ons like cheap change oils and free this and that but while you are having the cheap change oil the Rapide person will come to you with a laundry list of parts that are supposed to be replaced as per their assessment. Mind you, a lot of the parts on their list aren't even broken. What's worse, the cost of the part and the labor to install it is sky high especially when you consider that Rapide is not affiliated with any car manufacturer.

They also have their lifetime brake warranty promo which I think is a scam. To keep the warranty in effect, you have to follow all their recommendations which usually results in a lot of unecessary component replacement.

Try and visit a Rapide outlet. Most of the clients there are family drivers that have been sent over by their amos who don't know squat about cars. :rolleyes:


I don't like Rapide, I think they are unprofessional and less knowledgable. I had 2 of my cars serviced from them in order to save some money as compared to the dealers, first 2 weeks after the service it was good, after that I had to eventually go to the dealership as rapide instead of fixing my car, ruined it more. My opinion only, their parts suck too, their brake pads are terrible, also their AC delco parts. They should get better parts and hire more professional mechanics.

Anong sasakyan? nasa 7-8k lang evaporator. Kung wala naman leak sa fins no need to replace. But ung filter drier kailangan talaga palitan un, exp valve depende na sayo.
