Yes, but normal service items like mogo was getting does not fall into warranty service.

Mogo, by service charge are they talking about labor? If so, I would agree with what bidrod is saying here, although I don't like it. In the U.S. it is a common practice to bill the "book" hours for labor. Think how hard it would be to keep track of the actual hours worked and each mechanic will work at a different pace.

However, that does not explain the difference between the quote and the actual bill. I would be looking at the diff between the quote and actual billed, and ask about "why the diff?". Are there any stupid things you did not authorize?

I belong to two car clubs on FB and there is a lot of sharing of service cost info. You would not believe what some dealers try to get away with! p1000 for a car wash. p800 for worthless engine flush. Etc, etc.

Never said there was additional work done. The 20K service has specific jobs accomplished as do9es any other service, they entail specific times to accomplish each job. Does it take one mechanic 4+ hrs to accomplish those task? Would it take half the time if two mechanics are doing different parts of the job at the same time? Labor maybe charged by number of mechanics doing different aspects of the 20K service at the sametime. I wasn't there so no knowledge of actual situation. As to most Filipinos being able to explin something correctly, after 8 years here I really haven't found that individual.

Since you were only there 2 hours and they charged you 4... could they have had 2 techs? So 4 man hours? Probably not - just asking ha ha

My understanding is that even the Spanish found it that way when they discovered the country centuries ago--including the corruption. Takes a good two years or longer of living in the islands to be able to just let it roll off your back and try to enjoy life.
Well after 4 years I still can't take it full time. Have to get my breaks, and fortunately my stateside projects require time away. That said, I do miss my woman and the excitement.. haha. As far as corruption.. I read once that the it started with the Spanish friars who introduced the concept of "patronage" which eventually turned corrupt. According to what I read, apparently there was no system of bureaucratic or municipal process where one could simply get something done, hence the need to ask a a favor of the friar, which required a bribe. That became rooted in the culture after 300 years.
