Hi again,

Thank you Makky & neo1 for your reply..

Update to my aircond problem:

1. Sent my Avanza to SC Subang Jaya this morning, login my complaint.

2. After another Service Advisor & a mechanic check the fan, yes.. Makky is correct, the culprit was the fan's motor. They told me to change the fan's motor (Denso). It will cost me around RM1000. That's too much for me. I declined.

3. Drove back my Avanza to my office and started calling my friend asking for a workshop. Found one at :
AEA Motor Sport, Desa Latania, Section 36, Shah Alam (Jalan Kebun area).

4. Now my Avanza has a new fan's motor (Denso, same as the old one) and it only cost me RM280++ (fully installed). And the aircond is cold like new.

5. Sorry SC, I'm not trying to scare your customer but for ordinary people like me who drive Avanza, the extra RM700 means a lot to me.

Thanks again.

Hi, the fan motor only cost around RM 130 - RM 160 in a spare parts shops and you can get some mechanic to fix it for you for maybe between RM 20 - RM 50... it's quite easy that you can also fix it your self...
I had my Avanza air cond produce hot air out of sudden (I thought air cond spoiled) and then when I looked at the temperature meter, it went up... I checked at an radio accessory shop and they said fan motor rosak, and they quoted me RM 160. After that I checked at few spare parts shop and I got one denso made in indonesia-original for RM 125 and got a mechanic to fix for me for RM 20 = RM145... a bit driver here and there to survey price would have cost me RM 5 for petrol... wink.gif

Hi guys, I am planning to choose between the Exora Bold CFE and Avanza 1.5 Premium. Some said Avanza is better as the running cost and the spare part is cheaper than Exora. Can anyone give comment on this?

After reading some post here, don't think the Toyota SC is so reliable. They sucks money without solving the real problem. Any good, cheap and nice mechanic/service shop to recommend in Klang Valley? My email is bcc98@hotmail.com

Avanza made from old Tech ofcoz cheaper, Exora bold is new and turbo. So exora will have some hidden and extra running cost later on when it come near above 40k mileage.

Hi all,

1. Mine is Avanza 1.5 , 2008, bought new.

2. Last week, the aircond blew hot air from front & rear blower.

3. Sent to SC Subang, the service advisor told me the magnetic clutch was broken, need to be replaced, cost + workmanship =RM800.

4. After they replaced the clutch, the aircond still blew hot air. The service advisor told me that the compressor need to be replaced also, cost me another RM2200++.

5. Now, after i paid more than RM3000, the aircond still not blowing cold air, the temperature is like when you drive with open window in the morning.  Damn. BTW, the new clutch & compressor got 1 year warranty.

6. What should I do? Sent back to SC and pay more?  Arghhh...

Hi,
Sorry to read about your problem

Damage done cannot do anything.
Your workshop damn cunning..
Use you to trial and error and change all the expensive parts...

If u sent back to UMW Toyota
Or
DENSO.. They would have to follow their trouble shoot flow chart and strong evidence that suggest certain part failure before advising to change.

In your case,
Your mechanics has wrongly advised you to change parts without any strong analysis.

If you have sufficient proof that it was their poor analysis.. You can ask them for refund or forward this case to Tribunal Pengguna or some kesatuan pengguna.. Search internet.. Then seek their advice

Maybe your problem was gas leak or electrical problems that wrongly diagnosed by your workshop.

My previous experience with my another car (kancil) DENSO
Ended up changing the compressor, drier receiver and a few other cheap components for aircond not cold.
Diagnosed in DENSO HQ.

My 2009 Honda City was luckier..
The aircond not cold problem was only caused by a faulty relay. RM11.30 or something...

No need to refill gas, clutch or compressor or any other stuff.

They analyze all the possibilities of aircond not cold..
From electrical to mechanical before any conclusions.

Now my 2005 Avanza is having aircond not cold problem..

Will have to check it out.. From the cheapest possilities to the most expensive possibilities.. If they were to ask me trial and error.. Like your case

Just my thoughts..

Yaya, change the rear parts, for the rear aircond the part is whole set, you need to change whole set. I changed in Toyota cost rm650 with 1 year warranty, so I think so it is worth it. Until now almost 1 and half year still very cold, previously 150000km no service aircond before.
