You'll probably have better luck with a thread like this in the F&F section.

What kinda discounts did you get from ETCM?

Nop. Depending on board computer.
Civic 1.5T owners also feedback if always kaki berat or always stuck in traffic jam it will automatically cut short to around 6~7k oil change.
CRV 1.5T also same, as i knew 1 salesman driving it and complain of higher maintenance cost per year compare to his older ride. Even tho cheap road tax, but more time going in n out service center. In the end also contra back the cheap road tax benefits become none.

Unless you always drive highway at legal speed and light footed than maybe can reach 10k, but how many people got that discipline.

turbo dun skim on oil change... also remember to cool the turbo, last 1000-500m before your destination, drive slow let the oil cool the turbo and your car should last very long

never had any issue with my turbo car until written off in accident

Until today the only weakness i heard from new Almera Turbo is the engine mounting wont last too long and after sometime the vibration can be felt even worse. Do remember that the 1.0T engine is still 3-cylinder, so the design itself is not that balance or less vibration compare to like 4-cylinder engine. The only solution is to claim new engine mounting if within warranty, this is what i heard from a Nissan technician.

Since they dont charge u license plate, do they charge something else like plate number registration into car.... something to earn quick bucks?

Can u share process of registering bidding number to yr car pls. Tq

They did not charge anything extra, at least with my experience.

I will try to remember as much as I can with JPJ E - Bid, I can't remember in exact detail.
- So, JPJ released a few state Alphabets - there were 3 at that time.
- I pick let's for example RXX alphabet. Then I choose the number that I want to bid on - for example 1234.
- When I search for 1234, it will show the starting Bid amount, you would need to pay RM 10, to take part in the bidding and see the current Bid price.
- So let's say if you're interested in RXX 1234, when you place the Bid, you would need to pay it immediately. If you lose the Bid, it's refunded.
- Let's say if you already paid the RM 10 to see the live Bidding for RXX 1234, but you're not interested; you would need to pay another RM 10 to see another live Bidding Plate (example: RXX 2345).
- 30 Minutes before the Bidding closes, the price interval for each Bid increases. Plus the majority of the Bids happens closer to the time just before the price internal goes up (9:30PM if I'm not mistaken).

Hope this helps. I received the soft copy document that I am the owner of the plate on the E - Bid site / app or through email (can't remember) and that document was what I passed to the Sales Person. And he got it done.

That's as much I can remember actually.

you write so details, why never share how much discount your SA give you, or how much you over trade your car?

Tan Chong is famous to give very high discount for their cars.

No other discounts given other than the ones stated (if any). Maybe I'm not lucky enough

usually you can ask SA to trade the bodykit with cashback.

i owned a 2014 almera. that time the rebate almost same as bodykit. if opt for bodykit then no cashback.

Before I could share any more on the experience, there's already a few comments here and there.

Got the Almera in white, paint so far all good. Whether thin or not, I have no idea. But I do wash the car weekly.

I have no complains with the interior aside from the Beige wrap on the Dashboard and on the seats. Would rather have it in all black.

MY OVERALL DRIVING EXPERIENCE THUS FAR (FROM PURCHASE TO 1,000KM)

Just keep in mind that, I do not know much driving terms, just a regular person sharing so others may find it helpful.

- It's quiet. Everything is dampened quite well. For the doors, you may have to close it a little bit more harder haha. Nothing wrong with that. Quiet maybe because of the Continental UC6 that it comes with.

- If I'm not mistaken, Full Tank is about RM 65, I will fill it until I am able to see the petrol at the top of the hole. Have not gone entirely on the highway but so far it with a city highway + city, it's about 450 - 470KM per fill (my experience). The counting on the meter shows 13KM/L I think. Home to work is about 1.5KM. So not much long distance travel, all nearby and sometimes highway.

- Used the Cruise Control once, don't find it really useful unless it's Adaptive Cruise Control.

- The Side / Rear / 360 Cameras are great and pretty accurate. During my initial test drive, the Salesperson showed how accurate it was. So no complains there. I like it that when I put it in reverse and turn the steering wheel, the guides turn as well. Don't want to start any fires here but it's better than the cameras on the current Flagship X50.

- There was one time I was about to enter the Smart Tunnel and just before entering I think there was this Height Limit sign just above the road (stretched across). I was going at about 80KM/H I think and suddenly the emergency brake thingy kicked in and went off after about 1 second / half a second. Not sure why but maybe it detected a possible hit.

- I use an Android and there's no Android Auto. But it connects via Bluetooth automatically whenever I switch on the car, so that doesn't really bother me. I still prefer to use Waze on my phone. It has Apple CarPlay but it's not wireless though.

- Acceleration is alright. It does the job when I need it to. It can take curves at a pretty reasonable speed, tried it at 90KM/H+, I didn't feel much, was pretty planted and smooth. I think the seats (because it's pretty bolstered on the side) helped as well.

- The top of the Dashboard is flat so can place the Smart Tag Holder and etc easily.

- Aircond is cold. And I don't think rear air vents are needed. Even with the lowest speed, it's cold.

That's about all there is thus far. Just done my 1,000KM Service and will update soon!

Any questions, drop ahead
