actually, K5 is a very good car with a very good spec... planning to get one. however, what worry me is the glove compartment, seems flimsy. any forumers have the same issue? or it is inherent design flaw? any solution for that?

having a flawed glove box will give some heart ache after paying so much for he car

till today, i have no problem with the glove box...in fact, i open the driver side car door, or using the paddle shifter, or the boot release, or the electronic seat hell lot more than the glove box...and none of them bother me the least

my point is, glove compartment box is small part of the car, and u wont be using it any more than the above mentioned...in fact, ur wife will use it more to store their tissue or their sunglasses or keep their 2nd/3rd sling/handbag/makeup bag...and my wife been doing it, and till now no prob after 2 mths

if it is only glove box that hinder u from buying this car, then this is a good car !!

What he means is that the glove box is quite flimsy and the closing mechanism is not good. Ive experienced this in many test drive cars. This was also mentioned on overseas websites. But as ive said before, no such thing as a perfect car so i guess ill overlook this. More important are the specs, design, engine, transmission and the 5 yr warranty.

yeah i know...but i think i open it less than 3 times till date...so not bothering me as a critical issue there...flimsy during the opening, sliding mechanism but there is no cracking sound while the car moving...

but take note on the current issue of rear seat sound as mentioned by some owners here..that is big issue !!

Waw look at the list!!! Such an amazing car!!! Can someone compile all the list and make final one?
As for the glove box, i feel that closing is a problem. One solution will be you need to press the button when you close then should be fine. But if you are driving alone, this is not possible because right hand is pushing the button and left hand is closing the glove box so how about steering wheel?

i guess taiko K5White meant given all the spec, why bother the least important?

i have the same thinking, glove box flimsy feel is just a very very minor issue. It might make u feel less 'shiok' with that price tag with a flimsy glovebox, but what the heck......other spec u don't even get at that price tag! And my car is coming this week!!! yeah! tongue.gif

Dear all,

I woud like to consult you all on something which i have no experience on. I finshed paying for my first car a year ago. The bank has issued me a release letter and also the registration card. Now if i were to trade in my old car for a new k5, do i need to first inform jpj that i have finished paying for my first car? and can i just allow the SA to settle everything for me?

Thanks.

no need to inform JPJ. The release letter is just a formality for u to know as confirmation that the ownership endorsement for the car has been removed by the bank from the JPJ system. If it is not removed from the system, u cant sell the car even with the release letter. The release letter was used prior to 2007, when they all switch to online control.

If u bring ur registration card to JPJ, they will cross chop sign the "hakmilk dituntut oleh Maybank Finance Bhd" without charges...but if any shop taking ur car, they can do online search to check if the car is clear of debt
