I beg to differ regarding after sales service. As for me not all SCs has poor review. Personally i gave a good review for Alor Setar SC. I sent my car there for routine service since 2012. I believe there's more good SC in MY but as always, people mostly talks about the bad things & does not give credit to the good one out there...

Regarding RV..yes it's all about market perception that favours Jap or Conti cars..not because of the car itself. The car itself drives great with powerful engine + good handling...

Even with the turbo model the torque is still not sufficient to be powerful ?
Does the actual feel not really tally with the spec ?

What car u drive and u race with what car?.

I race with civic turbo. Not really race but follow high speed from msu until senawang. Later on at senawang he gip way.

Fyi, crosswind is so damn strong from nilai to senawang and we cruise between 160kmh up to 200kmh. Maybe he tired holding steering long2 time.

My car got same power output with civic but d segment.

Mine 2.0 c segment vs civic n mazda2 n f.focus
Zig zag during 3 lanes from s.river to rawang due to mostly stupid driver slow on most right lane
Just maintain 2nd & 3rd gear at 6.5k rpm, 4th gear seldom use
That's why i need 350nm torque

RV low? With the limited supply and potential in the second hand market for powerful cars, I doubt it will be.

Even if it is, I am on KV5 so I'll trade it back in with Kia for the agreed value. Bwahaha.

U are right..most early buyers were on KV5. Better trade it back in to NazaKia for better value unless someone offering better than that for this powerful car...

I too suffer from many slow car driving at right lane and few car change to right lane all sudden after 2 signal on. Hate this kind of practice as I had to brake forcedly for this.

Drove from Perlis to Kajang at 11pm to 530am last Sunday. Stuck jam at Ipoh and have to switch to trunk road after Ipoh area.

2.4 Accord give me 12.4km/l on meter considering driving 140kmh Perlis to Ipoh, and next using trunk road. Ron 95 Petronas user.

I wish to zig zag too. But d segment too bulky. End up gib signal or last resort give flash. I hate high beam people because I hate people high beam me. But no choice sometimes. Mostly I wait people gib way.

Wow. Maintain 6.5k rpm. Drive like this how is ur fuel consumption?. I never maintain 6k rpm. Usually 5k rpm then let go. But that also use a lot of fuel 😂😂

My last fuel consumption is 8km/L wo 😂😂😂. I not rev agressively, but like u alot of braking and my speed is up to 200kmh. Lol. Increase and decrease speed really kill my fuel consumption.

From R&R Tapah to my house in melaka only take 3 hours flat. Lol. But fuel consumption KO. If drive 120 constantly can get 12km/L. Big difference.

Urs is more jimat indeed since use new engine earth dreams technology.

Please remember the GT is a D segment car.
It is meant to be a cruiser, not a small Lotus with housefly agility.

If i drive normally Alor Setar-KL-Alor Setar, can get around 13km/L with my GT (average speed 130-160kmh & that includes some traffic jam @KL). If drive 120kmh constantly on flat road, the car gave me around 17km/L. This car really excels in long distance cruising i have to say...
