PostSubject: Love-hate relationship   Mon May 13, 2013 11:12 am

Hi all!

I just bought a 2009 308 turbo and im really loving the comfy ride and interior. But apparently my dealer was not honest enough to inform me about the underlying problems of my car. Just 2-3 days after getting the car, the "Engine Check" sign came on and I had trouble starting the engine. I brought the car back to the dealer once, left it there for 4 days and they claimed they hv fixed all the problems. After getting my car back for just a day, the "Engine Check" sign came back and this time, my car went into limp mode and had trouble starting again. Having lost faith in the dealer, I decided to bring the car to Thomas and Partner (as highly recommended by many in this forum). Uncle Thomas is really a pro and patient guy, i would highly recommend him as well! He took merely a day to fix my car back to normal again (which I paid out of my own pocket). Nonetheless, I still love my pug in general Smile

By the way, just this afternoon I scratched my car while exiting the multi storey carpark. Stubborn me insisted on forcing the car through the narrow driveway though I sort of knew that my car was already incorrectly positioned Sad Anyone knows if its possible to just spraypaint the affected area and how much does it usually cost, or do i hv to spraypaint the entire car?

Thanks all!

Cristel, hope your car is back to normal now! Smile

Blue850r, all four spark plugs were spoilt, there was oil leakage and Uncle Thomas also discovered that the turbo is faulty as well. I only fixed the first two problems. Turbo problem costs around $3k and Uncle Thomas advised me to get my dealer to pay for it. But they hv nt been answering my calls ever since Sad

Hi Rahh. U can go to Daiha for your car spraying. Look for Richard 9636 0388 at Bkt Merah Alexander Village. Very good skill and most importantly - cheap.

Smile Mine's minor, some wear & tear for an over 5 year 307. Was there on Sat morning and happened to see your 308. The standard fluids change (ATF, engine oil, coolant etc) done? Heard from Thomas that the turbo needs to be changed. Should be in spiffy health after that.

Thanks Ozzie75, so you heard abt it haha. Im looking for a better time to put my car with Uncle Thomas prolly next month or so in order for him to fix my turbo since it's gonna take a longer time.

Blue850r, cos the main issue is more of the faulty spark plugs and oil leakage. Thomas said I can fix the turbo another time Smile

I tend to chat with the workshop folks to learn more bout the temperament of our Pugs. Din realise that your car was scratched though. Can consider asking thomas to help refer to a spray shop within amk autopoint to get both the turbo and scratches done concurrently. turbocharged cars might require shorter engine change intervals, instead of every 10k opt for 7-8k.

Razz

I am also wondering how can a turbocharger of today's manufacturing standard need to be changed in just a few years. Those Saab, Volvo and WRX doesn't have this turbocharger problem.

For turbocharger problems, it is usually due to oil being too hot and turned into carbon. Once carbon built up too much, the rotation of the shaft is no longer free spinning.

For turbo cars, oil quality is very important. Don't flush engine as kerosene is the content.
