    Do they apply the proper brake lube, bai? Never have them use multi-purpose grease.

    a number of today's modern brake systems are self-adjusting.

    from time to time, i have my brakes cleaned, not because they are in desperate need of cleaning, but so's i can see if the pads and shoes are thin and need replacing.
    the other car sleeps with my son-the-med-student.
    one day, he says the front brakes make a funny sound when pressed.
    i asked, "is it a squeaking or screeching sound?"
    and he answers, "no. it's more of a gravel-y sound..."
    yikes!
    so i bring it pronto to banawe, where they brought the disk rotor down and re-faced it in the machine shop...
    sigh.

    alam ko spray lang konti ng brake cleaner gawa nila, tipong tinipid pa

    IMO every few years or 40k km palitan din yun brake caliper pin sleeve
    yun 60k km nun binaklas ko, ang layo na ng quality vs new

    i haven't heard of rack and pinion issues in the altis. are you sure, it's the rack and pinion? not the CV joint? the other wear-and-tear suspension parts?
    My Altis rack and pinion needs replacement. After 170K kms, sulit na ba?

    it would be nice if it reached 250K km, instead of that paltry 170K km...
    but hey! we have to spread the wealth around...

    ... would you settle for overhaul in lieu of replace?

    oo nga.
    less back-job issues.

    how has it manifested its desire to be replaced?
    may tagas na ba?

    IMO sulit na yan, sakin * 60k km meron na
    yung iba much much earlier, like less 40k km
