Speaking of SEA, is this still not a wake up call for Nissan?

Why Nissan is still lagging behind Mitsubishi , what is wrong with them?

Are they still losing money? Because as far as TCM is concerned, they have been....

I don't believe in coincidence, do you? Malaysia again gets no love from tan chong

A sad reminder of how great they were 6 years ago.

I am surprised so far no one even talk anything about LEAF when their own survey said one in three SEA consumers is open to buying EV

But in the EV world they were regarded as the pioneer. So far not even any one have even mentioned that, even the Forbes guy.

Still, it may not be something you care about I reckon, neither do Nissan really ....Look at their bloody dated websites.

Nissan hasn't made any exciting cars in the last decade or so except the GTR. Then their quality also drops, maybe due to being taken over by Renault? I will not buy any Nissan anymore, at least not in the next 3-5 years if they continue making boring mediocre cars like now.

To sell ev car like hot cakes car makers must ensure the battery is reliable, durable, and affordable. I think many potential buyers are deterred by battery warranty and price. Not to mention ev uses a lot of new technology different from conventional petrol car, which people are very concerned with the spare part price and availability.

I don't expect hot cakes status. Perhaps EV is still beyond reach and practicality , but how about PHEV, what I don't understand about Nissan is. Having acquired a large stake in Mitsubishi, they have yet to reap into PHEV tech of Mitsubishi who happens to make the best selling PHEV SUV in the world.

My thought is either it was all Ghosn's doing? Nissan becomes a reluctant investor.

Nissan all over the world is doing bad in sales, it seen down , down with no signs of recovery: North America, Europe and Asia ex Japan

Nissans make uninspiring cars.

For a while one of the best Nissans were the Micra that was built in Sunderland, really bread and butter car that proved Britain could make a good and reliable car, sold by the shiploads all over EU. Then came the cost-cutting and subsequent Micras weren't that good.

Personally, if I were to buy a Japanese car it would be a Honda or Mazda over a Nissan especially in our domestic market. Most of the Nissans here feel like cars made by a company that only wanted to earn money, none of the products offerings speak of any pride or passion in the products they sold, just plain shit junks.

My spouse family use exclusively nissan cars.

Nissan Latio almera cefiro teana x trail

IMHO
Fuel saving yes
No power also yes
Expensive parts yes. Easily broke down parts also yes.
Appearance not appealing also yes

If you are a standard day to day or family man driver Nissan is for you. If u are a spirited driver then this car is not for you

I have a Honda city myself. I liked it more than their sedan.

Overall its a no to Nissan for now.

But u should paultan the image of up and coming nissan that is gonna replace almera sylphy and American teana. Those look really beautiful interior and exterior. I will definitely test drive and consider trade in my Latio if its on par or better than Honda

I drove a Syplhy before, fuel consumption low and powerful.

Not sure about the parts.

Not appealing? Depends on people.

Not only was it guzzling but it would seemed like there's a big hole at the fuel tank too !!! LOL

With today's fuel prices, I doubt people would want this car even if it was given away for free.

Having said that, its one hell of a ride that Brougham provides during that time.

As a fellow owner, i would say parts quality is shit. Maybe perodua parts last longer than nissan.

And as someone mentioned before, to change smthg, u have to take apart a lot of things.

i'm in East malaysia...so the road tax is halve of west malaysia... rclxms.gif rclxms.gif

yeah, i'm more concern on the parts should it require any replacement... fuel guzzler is part of "accepted risk"..

i'm still considering it...its more of a "heart over mind" decision.. tongue.gif tongue.gif
