To all my fellow Forte Lovers/Admirers,
I'm now going for 1.6SX, changing my initial plan to get the 2.0SX. Reasons...

1) Dunno what's the exact release date for the 2.0SX? like JoLee & Bomberman's notes, very likely next year (Jan?Mar? Apr? dunno)... and by then, it could well be a CKD (who know they might start to produce locally due to high demand? The Manager told me all recently arrived are "CBU" and are all 1.6)
2) Tested drive the 1.6SX 2 times and SATISFIED ! 1 short distance, another farther.. clear road, traffic light, uphill (flyover), traffic jam.. all worked well for me. It's more than sufficient for my daily commute around town.. not to forget there were 3 adults & 3 kids in the car. FC from initial 15.3l/100km drop to 14.2l/100km.. so far no sluggish feeling
3) 1.6Sx means cheaper installments/road tax/insurance.. if 1.6SX is already sufficient, no need for 2.0 already..

Loan approved @ 9y for 3.1%. Now waiting for the Branch's confirmation on car allocation (cos Clear White is really high demand).. Once allocation is confirmed, can pay the remaining down-payment and drive home my Forte. The car is spacious, comfortable, and well sufficient for my family. Decision made, deal closed.
*
Hey, which branch you went to? You can get 3.1% for 9 years? Which bank too?

Have fun with your new car! smile.gif

i don't support you, i say ignore the wife, listen to the little man voice in your head telling you to buy the forte smile.gif

ask any man who's listened to his wife when making car-buying decisions, sure regret one. women make these decisions based on logic and practicalness. BORINGGGG!

men rely on being tempted by the car's sexy curves, and what other ppl think of them when they see them driving that awesome cool car!  laugh.gif

And that is how they came about to marry their wife! Haha! But seriously can you fit all your stuff for your family in a forte? I am pretty sure there are a lot of things you need to bring for the kids? How about an outstation trip? Might in the end get two cars? tongue.gif Forte + Alza.

wahlau...fuel subsidy based on engine capacity? then how about those who drive civic hybrid w 1.3cc engine? pay same as myvi owners even though obviously civic owner is higher income? how about those who drive 2.5cc 4x4 pickups? pay like 2.5cc petrol engines?

gosh... based on cc.... that rotary engine in RX8 is oni 1.3 but it gulp.  The new bimmer 7-series is 3.0 but return 9 l/km (which is better than my 2.0).

who thought of all this formula in the government la???
*
Hmm, my thought exactly. Use RX-8. 1.3l engine. Or mini one, small engine. biggrin.gif

If I were in the market for a car now, I would buy this one. But then again, I am not. Also, NAZA are known to be desperate sellers. IF its not flying of the shelf in few months, they release newer version with lots of goodies. Remember that tringle light car from Naza. Forgot what was that name. The signal indicator at A pillar. The car which meant to give Myvi a run for its money. Cannot find the car now.

I tried to go to the NAZA microsite. Say overbandwith. Looks like NAZA suck in customer satisfaction. Or maybe they just suck at customer service for low end market. I bet if buy ferrari, you will not get the same treatment.

i beg to differ. its a good sign because the microsite overbandwith. it's mean that the public response is enormous.
they just dont expect them to be like this.

most of us who book early because we already made research especially on SG market.
the only doubt is after sales service. but most car maker also face the same problem with some service center.

i guess we should seek the best service center only. not all incompetent.

sorry. although some said can get the car mid december, some said only on feb/march 2009... i will say you should expect only next year can get the car.
coz they only have few units for 2.0 cbu. so to be on the safe side, NAZA said only feb/march 2010 can deliver.
for those who book early, they might get the chance to get the 2.0 mid december. but the chances is like throwing a dice.

Guys, if let say I have paid RM1k for deposit, when is the time that i need to settle the remaining 10% deposit of the car? Can I paid when tha days come nearer once the SA inform you that your car is ready for collection (eg 1 week before collection of the car)? Is it the procedure like this?

i believe you should pay once the car ready and loan approved (loan should be fast within 3 days to 1 week)
they will hold the stock for 2 weeks after car has been allocated to your booking
