I'm extremely frustrated with spare parts in Australia.
1) Just to be able to get a spare key would cost me $480
. Eventually a friend got me one $50
2) Secondly had a harmonic balancer take out my timing belt (nearly complete cut belt). Replacement genuine was 30% of the $ of the car
. Plus 1 months delivery
. Had to get aftermarket part 5% of car or get stranded away from home (hotel lost time and send kids home ALONE by train).
3) Issues with oil distribution > Oil seperator > PCV > EGR > Turbo > Seals now turbo needs replacement.
4) Turbo from Suzuki spare parts $11000
. More than 60% of cars value. Got price direct from Honeywell Garret $2000
but $2000 to replace
. With the complete list of cascade affects from PCV ($65 reasonable) add another $ks to clean or replace oil distribution system.
So asked Suzuki re PCV price
but 4 weeks to get into Australia is insane
. Not a single PCV in the whole country.
How many other models are ignored?
