I sent my car to the agent workshop for servicing and at the end of the day I discovered

somebody had set the temp to 19 degree...(not the first time)

My setting is always 24 degree..

The car was left there for almost 3 hours and the servicing did not include aircon servicing

Someone was enjoying aircon comfort in your car?
That will be 3 hours of idle time on the engine... lots of fuel wasted?

This is sometimes done to check :
1) aircon temp
2) air con cut in and out switch
3) air con fan switch
4) engine temp ( overheating during high air con usage )

Though you mention that air con is not part of your servicing, most machinic will do this check as normal part of servicing inspection.

Hope this helps.

ya some will also release the gas, so that the next day you will return for top up.

At least inform the owner else misunderstanding loh!

Just hope that this is the case.

Maybe we should ask the workshop!

in contrary, the other day when I got my car back from the workshop, the temp was set to max (dunny maybe it is 30degc) and fan off. lucky no sweaty smell in my car :p

I sent my car to the agent workshop for servicing and at the end of the day I discovered

somebody had set the temp to 19 degree...(not the first time)

My setting is always 24 degree..

I think the tech set the temp to 19 degree during servicing and then to the max as they had forgotten your setting.

Check with the workshop as to why the change in the setting?

I may be wrong!

Most of the times (99%) the mechanic or foreman will adjust your aircon , radio and car sit to their preference when testing out our car / engine performance , most of the workshop had no enforce rules for mechanic not to adjust customer's aircon , radio and car sit . you can always write in and complaint the workshop ( only apply to car dealer or agent ) .

think write in to complain will be a total waste of time.
So what they offer an apology? some more I'd wonder if I would be black listed and next time I go back to the same workshop, they do something funny to my car :dunno:

I would be more than happy if they did the job properly (service/fix) as they promised, and I'd waive the rest of on radio/seat/air con settings.

Not meaning to be nasty here, but do you have a life? I mean so effing what if the airconditioning temperature was change and who gives a stuff it it took 3 hours to service. Get over it, it's just a bl**dy car for Pete's sake.
