You can get better options for the price of 2.0L Sylphy which is pricey. Any way 1.5L Sylphy is value for money.

Center got lobang, put laptop in it, might kill you if never secure down.

 

Whether possible or not, need to be careful of what we put in our cars ...

Thinking of getting the Nissan Sylphy (2009 facelift)...

 

Feedback appreciated...Thanks

 

 

Had the 1.5L for about 1 year now.

 

For those who wish to enjoy their ride comfortably but definitely not for those who always want to be first of the blocks. So either read road condition carefully or han-tum accelerator to get out of sticky situation which brings out immediate throttle response.

Cruising at the expressway is a joy because of the longer wheel base.

 

Suspension on the soft side. So must be gentle over humps.

 

A luxurious interior compared to similar cc car. (but have premium price to it)

 

Best is still the rear seats. wide enough for 3 medium size adults. If seat 2 adults(say 1.7m tall) at rear, both can easily cross their legs.

 

FC: calculate average 2 3-months period: 12.5Km/l and 13.9km/l using caltex 95 60/40 road(again must really read road condition)

Side-comment: I just dont understand pple just like to piah all the way and then i see them at the next traffic light waiting for me( [wave] and i think we would all realise that cruising at about 80-85km/h actually requires using the brakes less and accelerating again(which leads to increase consumption)

 

So overall a good car but i would wish for more power perhaps a 1.8l version instead of 1.5l.

 

Cheers!

Of course , for a 2 litre car is not the best in town.

 

1.5 cc class is considered the best in term of comfort , size but not the pick-up.

whatever your choice is, i will still recommend 2.0. Now dat the diff is bigger btw teana and sylphy.

The 1.5 is just right, but the power aint there. (:

 

those buying 1.5L cars definitely don't view performance as priority..unless it's heavily modded..

overall in term of spacious and luxury as compared to the same cat A.:---> [thumbsup][thumbsup][thumbsup]

but because of spacious rear space, the aircon will be at least 3.5/5 speed else the rear passangers will be stiffened...

 

in terms of peformance:---> [thumbsdown] pickup slow when full load, cornering:--> [thumbsdown] , soft rear suspension [sweatdrop] ....

 

 

most important: FC :---> 12.5km/l , using 95

Hi,

 

I am driving a Sylphy 1.5L for the past 3 years. [drivingcar]

 

My experience with this car :

 

Performance - Comfortable saloon car, dun expect sporty performance (unless performance modification)

Pick- up - Good for me (can move off quite fast)

FC - Okay (approx. 510km on 40 litres, average 12.5km/litre)

Petrol - Prefered Shell 98

Comfort - Huge interior space, great for 5 adults

Boot - Real big, 2 golf bag and extra items

Suspension - a bit soft, good for rear passengers

Cooling - Air con is great (always set at 25c)

Tax - Cheap, only S$ 684 a year (pay 1.5l for a 2.0l comfort)

 

Remarks - Overall happy with this car, better if I chose 2.0l instead (more powerful)

 

Other Sylphy owners : please put in your feedback/ comments

 

Driving 1.5 l Sylphy for 2yrs+

 

Below are the comment, hope that help.

 

Performance - Lag of power in high speed. For though travel to NSH, I will not recommend this 1.5L as there is no overtaking power at 110km/h and above.

For though want a comfort and relax ride in S'pore, yes you will enjoy this ride .

 

Comfort - Yes it is one of the most comfort 1.5L car around. In fact the best is the rear seat. Because of this comfort I used to have the on the rear this 2 yrs, now

I had a hard time to find a replacement unless i upgraded to a 2L (Compare only between 1.5-1.6L jap car)

 

Pick-up - Is ok for me as i am a light footer not though 0-100 type. If you are looking for good pick-up than forget about this car

 

Boot - Think this should be the selling point of this car if you need a large boot space, even a 2L teana can't fight in term of the boot space. Very good [thumbsup]

 

Petrol - I got around 530-580 km for 40Litre of petrol. That was cal of around 13.25-14.5 Km/Litre. That was very good figure I am having as compare with my prevous

1.6L ride. I am using shell 95 (70% highway)

 

Remark : After all this is a good and nice car, the ride is relax and comfort. With the current price tag of the 1.5L i would say is a good buy if you are more to the family

type. Ya 2L is better as it can fill in the lag of power gap, but than there are better choice around for 2L cat.

Hi Thioeh,

 

I am very impressed with your FC (13.25km - 14.5km/litre) on Shell 95. Is your car stock? or you added some modification?

 

I noted that Shell 98 give me more power moving off and overtaking, Shell 95 is a bit sluggish (I have to accelerate harder)

 

I am looking to change my shock absorber to a harder one (maybe Koni) cos current suspension is too soft.

 

Cheers.

Hi Joshterran

 

With not stock only wife and myself, smooth traffic, yes I can get 14.5km/litre, no modification added (70% highway)

Yes shell 95 a bit sluggish but I get use to it after sometime, as i am a lightfooter so don't feel much different, the only different is that shell 98 give poorer result on FC.

However I found that if I mix half tank with Msia Esso syn, it does feel slightly more powerful.

I used to travel in NSH one a year, you can get even better result of around 17km/litre with 110-120km/h but will drink more with higher speed.

Oh ya forget, I myself added two magnet at the fuel line 2 yrs back. That taken out from my previous car.

Hi Thioeh,

 

I am kinda like to push my car a bit harder, tried to rev the RPM to 4.5k to 5k often (hoping to "train" and push the engine to be more seasoned and harder)

 

I am considering to put Unichip and tune the engine.

 

On NSH, I can go at 130km/h constant with 4 adults and certain stretch of NSH 150km/h.

 

My mentality : since I have driving 1.5L, might as well push it harder and enjoy my own spirited drive. FC wise may suffer a bit, but why torture myself? Petrol consumption may cost me 1 extra tank.

 

Have fun. Keep me posted if you upgraded any hardware or software.

 

Cheers.

Been driving 1.5L sylphy since dec 2007.

 

Outlook and comfort wise, no complaints. Jus wish for more omphhh during pickup.

 

How did you guys get FC more than 12km/L? I cant seems to go beyond that? Maybe becos i stay near my work place and i quite heavy footer.

 

I am using shell 95 and if i go to malaysia, i will top up with petronas...much better performance than V power i feel. The car will feel more spirited. Give it a try.

Hi Max,

 

Do you still do your servicing with Nissan service centre?

 

I do as I signed up with Nissan 40,000km service maintenance programme (quite economical, Spark plugs, brake pad changing included)

 

I found that Nissan uses Fastflow engine oil which is quite inferior to my review. I noticed that the car is still sluggish even immediately after oil change.

 

Fustrated by the sluggish preformance, nowadays I would do another round of engine oil change after 1,000km.

 

Tyr Liquid Moly 5w40w (German), not bad to my review.

 

You may choose to use Shell 98 instead of Shell 95 cos Shell 95 is slower in acceleration. And you get more pick up only by spending about S$ 3 per tank.

 

My past experience in getting better performance :

 

a. Engine oil (best is 5w30w)

b. Petrol (you may choose to add fuel additives)

c. Air intake (stainless steel replacement filter)

d. Weight (extra load in the boot - spare tire, golf set)

e. Tire inflation (maintain good pressure)

 

Cheers.

Frankly, the FC figures here are only if you are a qinggong master.... How could Sylphy possibly have same/better FC than Latio?
