Hi.

My Dads stock tyre profile states 175/70R14

 

We intend to change it in Malaysia to save cost.

But we cant seem to find that.

Workshop is suggesting 175/65/14

Does it work?

 

Possible to also add me into the whatsapp grp?

Any one here experience ECU of Accent spoil?


Its a 1 year old Accent.


 


It was down 3 weeks ago and they say the car is no longer safe to drive so they have to ground it.


They say the delay is due to the fact that the ECU comes from Korea but they will expedite.


Although it is under warranty but there will be no replacement car.


Today they updated me and told me the ECU is made to order so it will arrive earliest by 13 Sep... not including repair time...


 


Any advice?


Is this the norm?


And no replacement car as well?


 


Btw, possible to add me into the whatsapp group please?

Two areas I realised here:

 

1) Why every new Accent owner needs to join a separate chat group? What's there to conceal and not share about this model?

 

2) That the fuel consumption of Accent is high. In the newspapers, it's advertised 6.4l/100km, whereas Honda HRV 1.5 is 5.7l, Jazz 1.5 is 5.6l, Corolla is 6.1l.

Wow!

Almost all owners of same model will have their private chat group. I’m surprised u not aware of this.

Even old uncles join WhatsApp chats n as the group goes bigger, they migrate to Telegram.

Be wary when the telegram group chat starts organizing group buys by one or two person, most of the time they have vested interested..

 

No need to make it too explicit.

All the same in every group. No one will do a group buy for free. Quite some blatantly rip off the rest! Just expose lor. This sort of “buddies” don’t have also like that!

So long there are cost savings or other benefits from joining in the group buy, and not getting lemons, why not let the organizers get some benefits for themselves? 

 

We should not always expect to benefit at the expense of others.

 

In life, everyone has vested interest in one way or another, monetary wise or others. Some organizers derive satisfaction from helping others, others derive satisfaction from making some monetary gains. So long as both organizers and participants obtain win-win, all is good.

 

On the flip side, one should not also be too naive. Need to check to make sure lemons are not bought.

Unless it is a group buy for lemons, then better get lemons! Not lime.

The Accent in Korea 16" rims is an option. Just be sure to get correct rim and tyre size for any size increase.

Thanks. Thinking of changing to 16" rims with 205/50/16 tyres. If any bros here are using 16" or 15" rims, can share your car pics. Want to see the difference in the looks. For performance wise, i have been using 16" for my avante for about 3 years and 205/50/16 tyres handles much better than 195/65/15 (stock) tyres

 

Also if anyone can share their experience with 16" on accent, would be helpful as well. Appreciate it!

16 inch profile can fit according to the car manual.

 

Yup. Have seen the RB model in 16" alloy rims in Hyundai Australia site. But those models are 1.6l variant. Body weight and size I'm not sure if they are similar

 

Thanks bro!
