Nv save on the transmission fluid.  Follow according to spec.  Honda Vezel is using HCF-2

 

There are 2 option available in the market. 

 

1) 3.5 Litre HCF-2 made in Singapore.

2) 4 Litre HCF-2 made in Japan. 

 

 

Cheers

One thing I noted - sometimes there is a need to leave passengers in the car with engine idle while I pop by a stall to buy something quickly, unable to lock from outside or with remote.

 

One passenger has to stretch in front to driver's side to press on the door lock.

This is the norm bro.

Test drove a friend's HRV 1.8 in Malaysia over the weekend. He paid SGD34K and gets to use the car for good. No 10 year lifespan and Certificate of Extortion crap.

 

Key advantages of 1.8 over the 1.5 that I test drove at Kah Motors.

 

1) Very much quietier engine

2) Significantly more powerful. No signs of engine strain even with 4 pax on board.

3) No need to rev so hard to pick up speed when acceleration

4) Lower rpm at highway speed (70km/h, which was the fastest I drove in the HRV 1.5 during the test drive)

5) Overall a much more comfortable drive with less stress when overtaking. Power comes naturally on demand.

 

*Prices in the price list are in Malaysian Ringgit.

Buy one vezel = 3 x 1.8 hrv....welcome to sg...

Kah Motors carry HCF-2 at 3.5L capacity for $86.14 W/GST.

 

You can also consider Valvoline CVT fluid, around $17 per quartz, so litre for litre is around $59.50:

For first change, would be at 40000km?

 

Or are you looking to take the every 10000km approach?

Bro. Not sure about this if its old sch but cvt recommended at 30k...the toyota cvt-i is at 40k though... Edited by Andyngps

Yes, basically labor is "free" and we hv to pay for consumables.

$130nett for mobil1 and original honda oil filter.

Not cheap but its ok.

 

Maintenance free battery means you have to replace every two years to be safe.

But I use battery charger to bring the power back to above 90% .

 

My Porsche and Harley have been using the same battery for almost 5yrs now.

Haha

 

 

Hi, where did you get the battery charger from? These new batteries are those designed for start-stop, I thought it's better to keep them in good condition to last longer, as I heard such batteries cost much more than regular ones.

Much appreciated. Thank you.

I'm driving Vezel X

the door states 210/200

 

initially when I first get the vehicle, it was about 280/280

felt quite stiff...

I released them to 220/210.... felt much better...

 

but I am gonna try 230/220 soon as many bros have recommended it seems.

Silver goes very nice with dark coffee brown leather seats
