    thanks for the Info, robert k.....Suzuki Cars checked my Car and recommended to replace both of the rear wheel cylinder coz they are rusty and the rubber caps where damaged coz of the rust....the car (Suzuki Alto) has 56,000 km and is 9 years old....
    they replaced only the rubber cups coz they didn't have the wheel cylinder....right now there is no problem with the wheel cylinders but they told me it might be in 3-5 Month....

    We bought a new Mitsubishi Adventure less than two years ago from Duma dealer. After less than one year the battery went out. We had moved to Siquijor and carries the battery back to Duma to the Mitsubishi dealer and they at first said we had not had car serviced there therefore warranty was voided. We showed them our paper work where we had paid for their over priced service. They then said they would check on it.....after a week they told us that because the vehicle had been sent to them from Cebu they could not honor the warranty. I will not use this dealership again and do not recommend anyone else either.

    If they sanded out any rough spots you have years before those cups go bad. Since they told you "months" It is questionable whether they smoothed out the rough spots. If it leaks again, you will know next time. If the fluid in the brake reservoir looks new and clean now and it starts turning dark that will be bits of the rubber in the system breaking off. If the fluid stays clean, I wouldn't worry about it too much. If the fluid turns dark, it's a warning.

    In a similar vein - had some bodywork damage on a 2 year-old Innova a while back. Took it to Toyota who printed me out a very professional quote for the paint job required - 30,000 pesos. Then went to speak to Grims, the service manager at our friendly local repair shop (Scuds - near Hypermart). They quoted 8,000!!! Needless to say I went with them. They may look rough and ready but they did a first class job as well, perfectly matching the existing color. Since then I have recommended them to several friends for both paint and mechanical work and they have always done a good job. And there doesn't seem to be anything in the way of long-nose tax involved.

    Lets not forget KIA, using home made tools (REBAR hammer), and non approved aftermarket parts, cant even change brake pads without snapping bolts and improper basic mechanic techniques.

    My KIA K2700 has been an awesome vehicle for 12 years, however the dealership experience lost a sale of a new one.

    Shameful ,

    I would certainly agree Chevy Bacolod are a bunch of ignorant crooks. We have a new spin bought in Cebu, trying to deal with Chevy Bacolod is next to impossible, on two occasions have stormed out furious.
