CitiCars Automobile Service Centre @ The Gardens Mall Midvalley

Owning a vehicle would mean that we will need to service it too, at regular intervals, be it every 5,000km, 10,000km, or 15,000km. How often do we delay servicing out beloved cars because it usually means leaving our car at the service centres for hours on end, without anything to do except to stare at the mechanics working on our vehicle. Introducing the new 'auto service centre in shopping malls' concept, CitiCars Automobile Service Centre @ The Gardens Mall Midvalley where one can leave their cars in safe hands for servicing while heading off to shop till you drop!

Truth to be told, when I was first invited to check out CitiCars Automobile Service Centre @ The Gardens Mall Midvalley, I had my reservations on how it would be done, specifically on how well done the service job will be. Will my car end up being worse off than before it came here? Rest assure, after a visit to this place, all my fears were laid to rest, as the professionalism of their staffs, and high tech equipments both work towards giving your vehicle an effective oil change.

Upon arrival, the service centre itself is located on the P2 basement of The Gardens Mall, within walking distance to the nearest escalators up to the mall. How convenient is that? No more heat while we wait for our cars to get serviced, as we can easily just walk up to shop to our hearts' content. I brought my white Kia Forte there, and was introduced to the various service packages, where I went for the RM298 which offered the Shell Helix Ultra Fully Synthetic Oil complete with the 26 points inspection, an original Kia oil filter and various extras.

The oil change was done relatively mess-free and effective using their oil suction machine. Sucking up the old dirty black oil like drinking from a straw, fresh new Shell Helix Ultra Fully Synthetic Oil can be poured in giving my car a renewed 10,000km of ride. Of course, to change the oil filter, the mechanic still has to jack up my car and crawl underneath to do it the old school method. No complains there though.

  3. The gear you'll need is minimal as well; high quality car wash, wax and interior cleaning supplies. Once you have Link here established a bigger client base, you are able to buy your supplies in bulk at lower wholesale prices, thus increasing your profit per job.
