    • Hi,

      Newbie here. May I know what’s a typical serviving plan for a Sonata under 24/7 as maybe I may take up a Sonata from CDG. Had heard some horror stories of frequent breakdowns OTR as frequent as every month or less. Btw, which models from all the taxi companies have the least breakdown. Very troublesome when the taxi breakdown OTR and has to be towed to workshop. Not only loss income but super sian and stress in those occassions. May cause accidents too from sudeen loss of power especially cruising on lane 1 on the highways.

      Thanks for any advice on Sonata and other taxi models breakdowns and servicing.

    • If the taxi breaks down very often, will the company pay anything? Any rebates???

    • Get a new vehicle from CDG will only answer your question. You know what is Heng or Suay? Just like PAP and WP yesterday.

    • Servicing is done once a month. if you want to do CM or PM just inform the workshop. Then u wait in the waiting area or go back home and wait for their call.
