DO NOT SEND YOUR CAR TO ML AUTOMART FOR ANY INSTALLATION OF YOUR ACCESSORIES.

On the 28th April 2007 I send my car to ML Automart to install back my previous amplifier, electronic crossover & speaker to my new car. My previous car I have 1x 2ch amp, 1x 4ch amp, electronic crossover, 2x 4” spk, 4x 4” spk, 2x 6” and 2x 10” spk, and I bring all the cable over to ML Automart in Puchong.

The 1st time I talk to a guy name Vedly, I ask him how much are the workman ship he told me RM60, and he is damn rude nvm, then I meet another guy name Kenny he is the Assistant Manager there, he is very nice in the 1st place. I told him I need to change all my speaker cable from amp to the speaker then he said ok, I told him I need to put all my amp at the behind of the back passenger seat and he said ok, when I ask him how much then he said about RM250, then I said ok cause he can deliver what I want.

About 2++pm I want back to the shop to collect my car, I see a technician fixing my car his name is Lian, when I open the door I saw the amp has install under then front seat then I ask Kenny, he said because the amp cable not long enough, but I know is bull shit because it is from my old car and the cable is even longer then my car, NVM

After I bring my car back to my house I feel that there is 1 speaker no sound, so I open the door skin and see is that cable connected or not, then I found out that my speaker cable is still original, then I quickly open all the amp and the player then only I found out that all cable has not been change at all.

Then I drove back the ML Automart and look for Kenny. I ask him why all the cable is not change then he told me this is the way there install amp, then I said fine so where is all my audio cable?
He told me that all has install to my car, then I ask him to show me where, he cant answer me.
So he called Lian and ask, Lian only answer I never take. MAY BE THE CABLE GOT LEG WALK OF BY IT SELF. Because both Lian and Kenny also said there did not take it. Before I leave the shop I ask him again so how now can you fix it back as what I want? Then he said can but have to buy 2 rolls of the speaker cable. WHAT THE F**K IS THIS.

Then I told my self forget it, this will be the 1st time I step in to this shop and will be my last time as well.

My advice to everyone who read this long story don’t send your car to ML Automart.

Below are the shop details

Damn dude... U got conned. These are the type of accessory shops who go around conning people from their hard earned money. I hope all the ZTH'ians would note this shop.

Let's blacklist this shop. Let them lose some business, then maybe learn their lesson...

Ya Vitrous I think before that as well but cannot la cause he sure know is me cause I scold him in front of all the customer….

I agree with Potssum before send the car over have to take down whatever we have before we send to car in the shop. Or list down all the stuff that we bring and ask the shop owner to chop and sign.

Yalo Chemical is my fault la leave my car alone in the shop if not sure this things will not happen 1 le…. L

Thanks for your concern Aja I think their will not able to took my car away cause I have install the immobilizer in my car…

This morning I just took some picture of the shop..

Moral of the story is always supervise what they do ,stay there and look at what they do , as for me i never leave my car with them, i see what they do, so no chance of conning me, i even once waited 4 hours at the accessories shop! :confused_smile:

Haiz all accessories shop con ppl one la, always give cut throat price and do shady job! Only if u know them only mayb they give discount!

maybe this is out of the story that discuzed now - jus wanted to share here ! i n my frend went to a tyre alignment shop for alignment his turbo mirage 1.6 n the **s**le foreman thre after alignment took for a check means test drive (u know always tyre shop fellers do go for test drive to feel the alignment) we was waiting at the shop n while the car reaching the shop we could hear the car misfiring - SHIT - thats it wen it reached we pop up the bonnet get to know they tekan teh car like hell the block gasket blowed ! they first dont wana agree n argued but finally they said will repair for us ! lucky my fren is a mechanic n he do it at his shop n claimed it !
alignment only RM50 but the gasket repair cost RM350 ! mmmuuhahahaha the tyre shop boz like benggang aleady !

yes pdguy...i hate it when they rev my car
that;s why nowadays...be it foreman or tireman...i go for uncle type..
as for my foreman now...he's a middle aged man...and he's the type that's like a father...always scold me for modifying car...example when i ask him to change the lowered spring which i had brought myself...he kept on nagging and nagging when he installed it.
The same applies to my alignment shop...an uncle as well..also don't like it when u modify ur car unnecessarily...

As for accessories shop...always go for a more reputable one..
they might be more expensive...but it;s worth each and every penny it as u get it in return of good and quality workmanship.
Better than to take the risk at some unknown accessories unless u really know that shop.

this shop looks so familiar..had bad experience before frm it..I bought my siren there and the installation cost me RM50..So expensive then I decided to install it on my own at my friends accessory shop nearby but after installation, the siren was not working. I went back there straight for a claim after an hour of purchasing it.Guess what, they say that the siren that I return is an old one and was not the one he sold me. I was so angry and started scolding, in the end, the changed a new one for me and tested em before I leave. Luckily it worked after the installation. I regretted to have gone to ML to purchase the Siren but too bad my frenz accessory shop does not sell such an item. Now I only goes to my friends place opposite ML at the newer shoplot area. The name is USJ accessory. They did a good job to my car and very trustworthy.

Hi pdguy,
Thanks for your advice so now all the time my car will park inside my house I think might be save.. Hopefully nothing happen la..

Hi kk13,
Next time I will sit there until there get my things done

Hi JINEL2EN,
I did tried to call myfm on this but too bad, cause from my house to my office is about 10min, in the driving distance I called but the line engage, but i only try to call in 1 day only la..

Hi huakenny & zzainudin,
I think I have to gain more experience from zth to avoid been con…

Yah xtorm the cable really cost me a lot when I bought, I willing to buy it even expansive is because it can be re-use even you have change your car but too bad the cable got lag and walk away by it self:’(

Hi ariel,
Next time I will be more more careful.

Hi b00n,
I agree with I will do that nest time…

Hi xover,
Good idea let all our zth member will not been con by any of the black shop.

Hi solid88,
Yes you are right the shop that I go is opposite IOI mall, just next to proton edar.

Hi WajaRS,
I think you are consider lucky because end up there exchange for you but my case worst haih….
You really do a smart move because not installing the siren in the black shop.

Hi All,
Just to update you all on this case, Kenny did called me and ask me did I post the complaint to the web, then I told him yes and where did I post my complaint. He did apologize to me but I think the main propose he want me to delete the post because his boss Micheal scold him. The 1st time he called I plan to delete all the post of complaint that I made because I thought he will learn from this lesson but I think he is not because he those SMS that he send to me let me feel that he only want my to delete the post is not because he know he is wrong is because this will bring down his name in automobile line. But if he/the staff do the right thing in the 1st place this will not happen.

He did call me again on Friday but I’m unable to answer his call so I get my secretary to talk to him, and the respond that I have is he is very rude. So I don’t plan to call him back. While I’m in Singapore I receive an email from Kenny boss Micheal and I promise him to call him back. I will rather talk to Micheal more then Kenny hope Micheal will not disappointed me again as what Kenny does.

what ever the explaination is, their shop is blacklisted to me !! Such attitude and workmanship is sux...

last time my bro waja also change spring at ML auto that behind tesco, change to improve spring, take a damn long time to change it and the main thing is, they accidentally knock my bro waja rear passenger door with the "jack" thingy when jacking my bro car. The door paint was ditched off and "bengkok" inside, my bro was damn angry and the in-charge there just keep apologize and give discount like that...what the hell...and the discount is not much !! just RM10 to 20......my bro pissed untill ICE TEA also cannot calm him down (thats what i bought for him when waiting haha). Unfortunately we still have to wait them finish and pay then ciaoz.....what an acc shop. Won't have second time for us !!!!!

no need to joke with this fellers .... u see if he is really keen in apologizing he should be patient ..... no point being rude ...... thats rule #1 in being someone in society ..... if he cheated we give chance but he must know what position he is in ..... chance given one time for the sake of the boss ..... he loose it the whole zth will avoid him .... thats the zth rules not offending anyone but this is society n reality .... we don't offend that shop neither got any business with that shop

Bro... I think the problem here is how the shop handles problems lar... They appear very irresponsible. No doubt its Human Nature to try to avoid problems and try not to replace anything if they can, however, I find the way they answer " Maybe the cable walk away on its own" is a very unacceptable answer. If they had just apologise and talk on how they can come up with an alternative solutions, they would have at least lowered the frustration and anger felt by our bro here.... Had it been me in the shop, I would have immediately demanded for the boss to inform him what great staff members he has and that how his business will prosper further with such "Superb" Staff members.

Anyways... having their shop posted here, I am sure despite what actions they may take to rectify this problem, most of us here would definitely Blacklist this particular shop in Puchong already. I for one will definitely not go to any workshop in Puchong for that matter from today. Good luck on their business and hopefully their current customers are sufficient to sustain their business survival.
