why my Evo x sst got so much problems? seniors please help

#1
My car is a 3.5 year old lightly used sst from c&c. But the amount of checklights is making me very angry.

1) the abs pump low voltage fault code

2) the asc checklight that comes along with 1)

3) the intermittent checklight that shows the 2 axles

4) the juttering feel and sound when moving off from low speed.

Wanna ask why is it like that and also where is a reliable and honest workshop to go to?

Thanks

It could either be faulty abs module or abs sensors. Have them checked/replaced.

Veilside05 bro is right, pop by Uber Garage for a check.

Lightly used? How often do you service the car? Every 3 month or 5,000 km svc; whichever come first? If you dont do proper maintenance; problems will come even if you dont use the car much. Mine also C&C car; C&C recommendation is every 6months/10k; which is nonsense for the Evo. Especially for SST gearboxes; every 10k should change/clean SST filter. Problem is C&C only do SST oil change along with filter every 20/40k which is too long.

Car, even if lightly used, must follow the maintenance schedule but most car owners want to 'save' on servicing so they tot less use, dont need to svc so quickly and drag the maintenance schedule. These comes back to haunt you in the form of 'breakdowns', 'errors', etc. As the saying goes; driving performance cars; maintenance will be high. If yours had been low; you probably know why now and best to stick to 'die-hard' B&B cars like Toyota VIOS, etc.

Mine coming to 3 years but it's maintained religiously; sometime i even change oil/filter even way before schedule esp after track, etc. Never once had serious problems arising from the car (also SST). Only thing was ABS sensor faulty at one of the wheels which seems to be a common wear and tear issue.

My other car I dont service as much (6 month/10k servicing; normal usage) but its a B&B family car (non-performance NA) and it runs economically without problems for more than 3 years already.

10k service? Not in performance car dictionary, now wonder if is ok for MB to service every 15k only as what c & c recommend, use to see many MB break down. This give those evo's bought from C & C a bad name if the servicing is 10k.
