Ok I do see a few of this car breakdown on the road.

Most likely due to poor servicing

Fuel consumption excellent. Smooth ride. Decent performance, more than enough for SG roads. Rather generous boot and cabin space. Reliable. I would say "Value for Money" and can be "Best in class" if do an overall comparison item-by-item with same class of Jap cars (1500-1600cc class). Caveat emptor.

Below some basic research of mine I can share with you:

Free upgrade as in totally free (inclusive of difference in COE, road tax, insurance and car price). Or just free as in difference in car price? Then you still have to top up difference for COE....

Been driving it for three years already. Its a great budget n low FC 4-door sedan with a decent spacious boot. The gear change is smooth due to CVT gearbox. Switch to sport mode n step on the accelerator hard, u will feel its power. Sufficient for overtaking. Rear legroom is good enuf for backseat passengers.

Only thing I dont like is the suspension setup. It is setup for comfort, hard cornering, u will feel the body roll.

You do not like this safety feature? The manufacturer incorporated the body roll safety feature for your safety. Hopefully it alerts you not to go any faster and hit a lamppost/tree.

Haha. I think TS meant "safety feature" in commas rather than safety feature. :P Guess he meant usually one will tend not go faster when you start to feel body roll.

As Adrian mentioned, the suspension setup is tuned towards comfort, which makes sense for a sedan. TS you drive already you will know. But TS, if you don't corner very hard (i.e. at high speed), this shouldn't be an issue. Comfort and rigidity are opposite poles of a setup, improve one side compromise the other side. Personal preference of what you looking for. No right or wrong, nor good or bad.

Of course, if you are more towards sports and racing, then we will got to have a separate conversation, as 1.5L NA engine cars are not really manufactured nor intended for that purpose. Otherwise the overall setup is good from my perspective, tuned towards low fuel consumption, smooth gear shift, comfortable drive, reliable, decent performance (110bhp for a 1.5L NA engine not bad already).

worst nightmare when comes to car servicing is when you buy some not-so-common brand or models, then your car breaksdown, needs to replace the parts,and it cannot be found in Singapore & Malaysia! Then you have to wait long long for shipment to bring the parts in.

Yo bro! I'm driving an axio..its engine is the same as vios. Suspensions same as old altis. Ive changed the springs..add a throttle controller, voltage stabilizer, strut bar, cold air intake and hurricane stainless steel air filter. All parts for axio can be found in Singapore. Its quite a common car actually. At my mscp alone has around 10 of them. Just search for 2nd hand ones for sale and you can see that its a lot more than what u expected.
