Since then, I always drive carefully imagine that something might happen. Maybe the tyre gets flat while I drive. Brake not functioning in sudden. Clutch not working and so on… running in my mind when I start to press fuel paddle to increase the speed. We never know…
I am very particular with my car even though I know it’s an old car. 8 years old. Yes bought it in 2000. It is a small sporty car that has so many memories between us. Love it anyway… even though it grows older same like me. I won’t sell it even though someday I might get a new car. To those who keep asking me about selling this car… I am so sorry that I can’t afford to do so. Some even offered me higher price than a car retailer could offers. Sorry guys… you can offer your price again in case I’m gone. Not with my corpse of course, but with my family.
Back to the topic, yes I took my car to the workshop. My lovely foreman named Ah Guan always gives me a good price and good service. He is very old but the work equal to a young man. In fact his work is way better than the young ones!
The workshop named Ah Beng Workshop and the location is hidden from other workshops around. Even my colleague was satisfied with his work and the cheap price. Poor colleague, he bought a new brand car… Wira Aeroback to be exact and the quality is rubbish! Within few months problems occurred. The dashboard locker fell and couldn’t lock it up, the seat at the back just pulled out by itself, he lower the window and couldn’t close it anymore and so many other problems happen and the recent one was oil licking. He went to EON who supposes to know what is happening since their company were the one responsible for the problems (didn’t they have quality check (QC) first?) but they couldn’t handle it. They said everything was fine but it happens again. He took the car for the second time, nothing changed. Lastly, he took the car to this workshop and problem solved. See?
Here where Ah Guan’s workshop located:
For some treatments and repairs yesterday, he charged me RM190.00. I was shock about the price as I heard so many noises on my car. But then I was upset as there were some major repair needs to be done. Changing my absorber and timing belt which will cost me about RM600! Damn. Some peoples say “Don’t drive a car if you can’t afford”. So, I bear the consequences. See Ah Guan again next Saturday…
9:51pm -- Just get back from wedding… tired.
