Not really too problematic or major issues but not that good either especially compared to Toyota that I have also. Some examples:
- Coil plugs already misfiring when mileage only reach just over 50k km. Then after full set replacement, at just over 90k km, again the same problem from one of it. A bit annoying especially since this kind of electrical problem will happen suddenly and due to the stupid intake design, need to open intake just to test and replace them.
- Absorbers already leaking at around 30-40k km.
- Rear brake cylinder already leaked also before reaching 50k km.
- There's some seal in the firewall that already leaking a bit of water to inside the cabin. This has been for a long time.
- Alarm siren already kaput twice. Once replaced under warranty, second time no choice to replace my self last year.
- Aircon coil inside dashboard leaking in just 3 months ownership but this was covered under warranty. Still inconvenience to me.
- Fuel consumption is relatively poor at only 9-10km/ltr considering it's a low powered slow MPV, not sure the fuel is consumed for what! In contrast my son's much faster 1.6ltr 130hp Suzuki Swift driven much more aggressively and my 2.5ltr v6 200+hp Mark X can achieve better fuel consumption!

Do you think all these is because of APM parts used ? What car did you change to, Bro ?

Fragile and expensive to maintain. Changed the gearbox for my Almari just over 4 years plus . No warranty for older batch. So far repair and maintenance already 14k plus. For gearbox change i pay half the cost... As "Goodwill" shown by Nissan. .. but no more Nissan for my entire family.

What did you pay for RM14K plus ?

Well I had my Livina for 8 years so it did do the job I expected out of it aside from the relatively poor FC. Just that I expected a bit better reliability on those items I mentioned above, maybe because I'm spoiled by my Toyota.

To the contrary on the TC services, I thought they're very good! My car never got any damage or scratches, services had been done well with appointments and queuing managed very well too. They even let me brought my own oil. I mainly only went to Chan Sow Lin, then later just 3 times in Klang branch.

Bro, may be you had a lemon unit as a few of my fronds who own GL did not suffer the same like your case.

The coil plug issue is common for Livina. Another rather common issue especially for 2008-2010 Livina is the fuel gauge malfunction, happened just once to mine then normalized by itself.

Thanks.
