    Most casa does not have their own machine shop equipments. I would suggest buying the OEM parts from casa and having them installed by a reputable machine shop.

    From experience, mas maraming auto shops na mapag-samantala. Since alam nilang limited ang parts ng Suzuki, they tend to jackup the prices of their Suzuki parts. I shopped around for my APV's wheel bearing before and was surprised na pinaka-mura pa yung wheel bearing sa casa (may 10% discount ako sa parts). Lumalabas lang na sobrang mahal sa casa because of their labor and since they let other machine shop do their job labor, nagkakapatong patong ang labor cost. May patong pa kasi ang Suzuki Alabang sa labor cost ng outside shop nila. Suzuki Alabang uses Matias Machine Shop located along Marcos-Alvarez. Ok din sila.

    HTH.
