You can go early or late service. No problem. But for city driving, better keep it 3 months if you have not reach 5K and change your engine oil.

Don't forget, you have either 50K km or 2 years warranty which ever comes first.

KB's term is 20K = 1 year thats why they will change your air filter even before actual 1 year. So 50K = 2 years. Thats what the SA in Jln 222 mention.

The cold engine is normal for Accent. It's just like Chipsmore........ Sometime you hear it, sometime you don,t........ I had been driving my accent since April 04 and as I had been travelling a lot, my ODO is 31K+++ already. I had been using Castrol Magnatec Fully Syn since day one and I'm now considering changing engine oil for the coming 30k service. Any good suggestion? FYI, I'm the lazy-to-go-service type, so if can, Wink please propose fully syn oil, so that I can go service my every 10k and not 5k.


Babhy, in my case, my ODO is only less than 14K even I got my car end of Fed 04.. Laughing that mean...I only go to SC around 6 months even just for the 5k service.....so...shall I use the Castrol Magnatec Fully Syn rather than the semi one?
Embarassed

wow....31K already......u shall use super fully syn oil ..... Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Regarding the oil, you can ask Sam, the SC manager at Pandan Indah SC but he will surely recommend semi one coz he can service your car one more time ma........ Laughing Laughing Laughing

If got super fully syn that can service every 20k, i'll also use it..... Laughing
