I am owner of mitsubishi lancer 2.0GT
would like to share with all mitsubishi owners regarding this particular SC
GUYS, PLEASE DON'T SEND YOUR CAR TO AUTO PACIFICA (AP) PUCHONG SC IF YOU STILL LOVE YOUR CAR AND WANT TO LIVE LONGER!!!
A month ago i started experiencing brakes being not sensitive, means need to depress pedal much more (4-5cm more) to get braking effect. Went to AP Puchong to troubleshoot, and diagnosed as master brake pump failure. Waited for 2 weeks for the replacement parts, then drove around for another 2 weeks, and suddenly my front brakes jammed totally one morning. have to call tow truck to tow car back to AP. Then they diagnosed as callipers jam (both?) and changed both of my front callipers. Still brakes are jammed and they proceed to replace brake modulator. Got back my car with brakes functioning at about 50% compared to previously, and the SC said this is because of new callipers and new brake pads. The following day suddenly i lost ALL braking power. Depress brake pedal all the way until floor only can get a little bit of braking
effect. Don't trust AP Puchong anymore and send my car to Target Orion Star (TOS) Kepong. Discovered that the NEW REPLACED CALLIPERS WERE INSTALLED ON THE WRONG SIDE!!! (left calliper on the right disc and right calliper on the left disc) This is the reason that cause the loss of braking power.
In summary, the fault lies with the brake modulator alone but AP Puchong screwed up by wrongly diagnosing multiple times and wrongly installing the callipers. Imagine if I was driving at high speed, I would probably be dead by now.
A month ago as well I experienced low knocking sound from engine bay when the air cond is on. This was diagnosed as aircond compressor failure by AP Puchong. My aircond failed me after a few days. Waiting for the compressor took me 2 weeks, and I was driving around KL in a no aircond car for 2 weeks. When the part arrived and they opened up my compressor, only then they discovered the damage was extensive and say wanted to flush the whole system, replace cooling coil and condenser as well. Ask me to wait for another 2 weeks!!! I complained and make noise to MMM and they finally managed to source the parts in 3 days
There is actually much more than the above in which i caught the service advisor lying to me and the technician not doing the job properly. You will not be able to imagine the trouble and time i went through and the amount of stress i had while dealing with this particular SC
Please feel free to share this out to any of your mitsubishi friends and warn them to stay away from this SC
I am filing an official complaint on this particular SC on their major negligence in work and will consider legal action if deemed necessary
