Hello, I am a new member here. My dad is considering a cheap MPV and we have narrowed down to a Hafei Minz and a Wuling Journey. So far I have only seen Hafei reviews but I rarely see any Wuling reviews. So any bros here can give me some advice on which one to choose?

Both are designed and made in China, with their automobile technology standard today, your dad would be tremendously better off buying a Mazda 5. It is not fair to put Mazda 5 in comparison here though, so Mazda 5 owners please dont fault me.

Both makes are of mini MPV classification. Perhaps, you may want to share more on your selection criteria.. For some, Safety is paramount and must not be compromised. Others, consider Price as a top priority..

The choice is still up to you..

Buying second hand. We just want something that is ultra cheap,and can haul 7 people and I was wondering if anyone here got experience with the Wuling because I heard many negative reviews of the Hafei. Not considering malaysian car because Proton Exora not worth buying second hand.

To TS, how come not worth buying a made in Malaysia car (Proton Exora) as second hand? Does that mean buying China-made ones are worth it? Can share more?

My advice is go to the dealer and your father can

 

try both cars out. Touch here, touch there and ask

 

all the questions he wants. Those sales people will

 

only be too happy to talk to him. Make a break from

 

swatting flies. The manager also happy when he

 

sees he sales people got something to do.

 

:D

Sorry for being blunt, but if you value your dad's life, you should stay away from these 2 coffin on wheels.

 

And where are u going to get the parts? Taobao? Not that its is impossible but you are on your own

 

These 2 junks have serious overheating issues and poor fuel economy despite tiny engines...

 

Buy used LiteAce of High Ace la...

 

Even those Japs K class 660cc vans are better than these 2 Chinese junks.

 

LTA must be sleeping to actually let such cars be registered in SG....

 

You wont find them in USA, Europe or JDM...

Buy Suzuki APV. Much better at slight premium over these two.

 

Top up a few more grands and get the super stable continental vans/MPVs. Most handle better than Jap passenger saloons. [thumbsup]

like T11 or north star, can't remember.

yeah, TS. This bro speak nothing but the truth

 

understand where you coming from but you gonna understand..

 

cheap things don't come good..

I did search in sgcarmart and those ride you mentioned, only cost $5k and COE till Oct. 2017.

 

think even simpler, why don't other potential buyers consider them in the first place?

 

I been frugal in my life, but there are times, whereby I regret over my cheaply purchases.

sometime, spending a little more, gets you headache less.

 

a car does a family good, going for meals and shopping together.

but if the car broke down easily or spend most of its time in workshop..

 

then whats the point..

:D
