FC I think, u get what u pay lor..
Rm30k car, combined fc: 10km/L
Rm150k car, combined fc: 15km/L
How to compare lor. not a really fair comparison.
I think if car A fuel efficient than car B in same price range, then I admit car A definitely fuel efficient.
If car A fuel efficient than car B, but different price range, I dont really think car A is fuel efficient as the comparison is not fair to begin with.
U pay more u get more features la right including much more fuel efficient car. No?.
my point is just very simple. i drove a saga blm before (so speaking as an ex-owner)
the car has a poor fuel economy (regardless of city or highway, it still wun be stellar. it is just below average compared to most cars with similar engine size or similar price point)
turning back time, given the choice i had at that time, i would still buy the same car though because it is a rather comfortable car to drive and sit in. but wanting to buy it again, does not deny the fact, that it guzzles fuel.
it's like.. i buy a myvi, then i say, it has rather poor handling.. then you come tell me, it's a myvi, sure la handling wun be as good as a civic.
it's not like we trying to compare it up against a different class of car. in a game of pros and cons, myvi has poorer handling capability, but better fuel economy and perhaps reliability also.
sometimes we gotta say the pros and cons, because the potential owner, needs to know about it, and then live with it.
personally, i like to know the bad points about the car (which part is sub average) and then decide, whether or not i can live with it.
if there is a car, with the power delivery that i want, the handling that i want, but the car seat is uncomfortable for me (perhaps not suitable for ppl of my height)
then i would have to forgo this car. because the uncomfortable seat will annoy me from day 1 till the day i sell the car.
but if the car has comfort, and handling, but poor power delivery. i may still accept it, because i don't zoom zoom on the road anyway. it may be a cons to other ppl, but it's something that i can live with..
sometimes we share the cons, so others can evaluate, and see if it is a deal breaker for them or not. some ppl just cannot accept poor fc car and will complain about it every single day
though i must say, halfway through my ownership of the saga blm, i've encountered some accident and poor repair job made the car unreliable. on top of that, the poor fc and my poor financial condition at that time, made the car rather undesirable for me at that point.
if the car was repaired properly, and with my current financial condition, i would not gripe that much about the car fc today, like i did back then. i would just learn to live with the poor fc.
