100km+ drive 2 hrs including the causeway @ 2nd link?

For me no point getting an MPV cos most of the time, it's only 2 adults and 2 kids...

The 2 other adults were my parents.

2 kids as in 1 - 7 year old who sat in the back middle seat, 1 - 3 year old who sat on an adult's lap.

it was a little uncomfortable for the lap of the person who my 3 year old was sitting on... but other than that... my folks were pretty comfy on that ride.

1 - car was smooth @ 130km/h average.
2 - air cond was cold enough

however... the pick up was horrendous... but understandable considering the total weight on the car.
*Aprox 350kgs total in the car...

By the time when your kids reach 10years old or older then is time to get MPV liao.

Dudes, i just took my Forte to Klang and back on Sunday with 4 adults in the car... drive was stable, but petrol consumption wasn't good, thanks to the high revs (gear ratio's fault?) Was getting 11.7km/l only compared to average 13km/l in Singapore.

Wifey commented the drive felt more comfortable than our previous Getz, she felt safer at the high speeds in the Forte. Pickup wasn't good, but it wasn't too bad because traffic was light enough for me to maintain constant speeds. Steering was lighter than the Getz, but it wasn't as bad as i feared cos it was too light to my liking when i drove fast in Singapore. This is probably due to the straighter roads on NS highway vs Sg ones.

Overall pleasant experience.

I realise something ridiculous about FC clock by C&C recently. Before I send My Forte for 1K servicing, it reads 8.1l/100km. Immediately after service, it drops to 9l/100km. When my car is sent for repair, it reads 8.5l/100km. When I collected, it drops to 13.6l/100km. Yesterday before I sent My Forte to repair it's exhaust and other minor issues, it reads 8.2l/100km. But when I collected, it drops to 10l/10km. How C&C clock my FC one???

Drive 1.6EX (Manual one). Drove to KL. On the way there, clock 12km/l or at 7.8l/100km. Drove average at 100km/h (still run-in). On the way back, clock better at 14km/l or at 6.7l/100km. Usual drive from JB to Expo (60km per trip), can only get 12km/l or around 7.9l (or more)/100km.

i did something damn stupid today. just want to share. was queuing at NUH basement carpark. queue was damn long and downslope all the way. As it was 9am, I suspect that it will be a long wait before I get into flat ground at the gantry. Then I thought want to improve my FC meter (i get a lot of satisfaction when the reading is good) and turned off engine while maintaining footbrakes, then later will brake bit by bit when the cars moves forward cuz the queue was sloping downwards steeply all the way. When the car in front start moving, i release the footbrake slightly and car move downwards, when i stepped brakes again, it was quite ineffective and when it almost hit the car in front, I jammed all the way then my car stopped! wtf man... then i realised then we have assisted braking when we step brake. engine off means no assisted. damn bloody heng. almost kana car in front. lesson for me!

Same thing happened to me in Taka carpark. I pulled my handbrake in nick of time.

So yeah, your brakes function properly only when the engine is on.

Pedal Brake will never ever ever work if you off engine....try with engine off.....step a few times, and you will realise it will be hard, why...cos the brake fluid will not return to back normal position (something like that).

Bro, I heard that if you're too light footed FC also is high. I think best is just drive normally, dont "zua", on highway maintain 80km/h, pump petrol only at night or early morning when its cooler (This I read somewhere, something due to the petrol expanding), dont pump when the station is loading fuel (Due to dirt being channeled upwards), Always pump when your car is 1/2 full (This one important!!!! Tested and proven.. because petrol evaporates quickly even within your tank) Good luck!

Yeah, I think the biggest contributor to higher FC for SX is the rims size... Unless one decides to change to lightweight sports rims? POISON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! You all really use the petrol to the last drop

Nowadays I will pump petrol when the empty sign comes out. I happen to have my car stalled at IMM taxi stand because my car run out of petrol. Eventually PG C&C got to buy a can of petrol to top up before I can drive to the nearest petrol kiosk to pump to full. But even then, the total petrol pump is still 50.843l only.

It's not a good experience to wait for C&C car tow and mechanics to come and diagnose what happen. I wasted 5 hours stranded at IMM under heavy rain just because run out of petrol.

After top up, my car can move and I go straight to petrol station. Nowadays services provided by car dealers and insurers are overlapping AA. I seriously don't think it's worthwhile to join them any more.

BTW, it's just after C&C PG repaired my car after last accident. Thought of just go IMM to run some errands before going to petrol station to fill up petrol. But didn't expect fuel run out so fast.
