Local Distributor called Go Auto, then renamed it to Haval, even then the M4 they change name to H1 to standardise the series

I had done test drive last week at Puchong showroom, quite a pleasent drive, more comfort than most of the same range car, but the problem i see is, too many electronic controller and LED in the car, which makes me feel worry on the maintenance part. Yes you can always Taobao those part from China, and DIY it

According to the showroom sales person, the service fees is fixed, and the part actually not as expensive as Perodua, so I "assume" that the maintenance is within affortable level, but it is the best if the real owner can share his \ her experience, to clear up those questions that we have

Cheers! smile.gif

Don't listen to sales person. Get real figures on the parts price.

If the parts can only be sourced from one company the price will be sky high. This has happened before with other makes like Chevrolet and Cherry. You must be able to source the parts yourself from Taobao.

I believe this will become a business, just like sourcing China phone into Malaysia market, coz more and more China Auto-manufacturer establish their base in Malaysia as the step stone to expand into SEA and Middle East

Anyone here wanna start the business as pioneer? smile.gif

Why not go for HRV base spec? Now have RM2.5k discount right?

The Haval costs as much as the HRV I think

They got 50% buy back guarantee for your 5 years used Haval, so i dont think the car value will be a big issue smile.gif

Build quality not bad, almost no noise in car during 80km\h (test drive around puchong, cant go too fast coz of traffic) so i presume the quality is better than proton

Yah both are about the same price range, but Honda now only have quantity, no quality anymore sad.gif

2 of my friends (Jazz and Civic) having parts problem (those interior plastic mounting not "thuck" on correct spot, sudah senget, quite obvious, ask to redo or replace but reject, said this is not faulty mad.gif ) My sister Jazz board problem, the workshop said voltage tak ngam, causes sometime the car like no power when accelerate, need change part but waited for almost 2 years from the day they made report

I've been lurking for some time now but I think it's time I share my experience of owning the Wingle 5 4x2 truck. Granted it is not the H2 but I've had the Wingle for 4 years long, so I think I can safely say something.

If the H2 is CBU, do try to not buy just yet. Wait for the CKD version. My Wingle was CBU and boy, did it give me trouble after 2 years. Loss of power when climbing up roads, non-functioning turbo, black smoke and smelly too even when idling. And it wasn't just me, other owners turned up at the SC complaining about the same problems. All were early buyers like me who got the CBU.

As for the SC, I go to the Glenmarie one a lot. Friendly front-end staff and so-so okay mechanics. Spare parts are very affordable to even my surprise. My normal 5000km service never costs me more than RM200. And they already had the H2 on display then (way before it was officially launched). Most impressive specs, but again I heard it was CBU for the first few hundred units. So, I never bought it.

And o yeah, as for my troublesome Wingle, I got rid of it and bought a great Hilux. thumbup.gif

That's what i worried about the CBU unit - the car is tuned based on their country road and weather condition, so will have some difference with us. The non-functioning turbo is scary weii.. especially during the up-climbing road!

Really appreciate on your review!

Hmmmm.... I think if you want problems free buy Japanese cars are the best. Not necessarily have to be Honda.

We have 2 Hondas in my house. One HRV and one jazz. Both terrific cars and problem free.

Not sure what haval appeals to you though but it's very rare and untested here. When you're spending RM90k on a car from your hard earned money, make sure it's something worth spending on and you're happy with it.

You do not want to be stuck regretting it for making the wrong decision.

After all car is a depreciation and your money will be burnt. Why not choose to burn your money on something good and that you really really like.

I went to their Glenmarie showroom 2 weeks ago, they don't have CBU unit anymore, now all CKD...plant at Gurun....check out their car, very nice exterior and interior...thought of purchasing 1 unit as well because I like SUV and is also within my affordable budget range....really can't complaint this car at this price....went to Honda too to check out City & Civic at Glenmarie branch too....was really disgusted by their sales representative....arrogance and also feel not welcome at all....ask them question their blardy eyes like a scanner.....and don't feel like talking to them....never will i walk back to that branch again...

back to Haval H2....haven't test drive it yet....will arrange to test drive....then only will decide whether to purchase it or not....

I am assuming that you are a lucky one to get a problem free car, congratz to you bro! rclxms.gif

IT is not about where the brands come from, but the reliability of the quality, driving experience, value of money, maintenance, etc. Every single brand will have their own hard time when establishing in new market, but this doesn't mean that they are not as good as established brand in the market. We as consumer shall not blinded by their "shinny" brand - most of the brand become famous because of advertising, not by quality, for example.

I don't mind to spend 90k to get a less well known branded product, as long as it satisfy my needs. For the depreciation, everybody knew it when you bought a car, to be a little bit harsh, don't buy car and stick to motorcycle or take public transport if you don't want your bought item value depreciated smile.gif

This thread is for gathering info on this car, so that everybody have some info in their mind if this car is in their list, sharing is caring

Cheers!
