    2019 12th Gen Toyota Corolla Sedan

    I am not sure since this is a pre-launch sale, all the buyers didn't even manage to do a full test drive because the car hasn't been homologated at the time they booked it. Not sure if there's even a display unit to have a feel of when they booked it.

    2020 Kia Seltos any news?

    Wow, so indeed Kia Korea isn't manufacturing the 1.4T version after all. Interesting to see that C & C decided to bring in India-made version.

    Agreed, wonder who will dare to buy over with these defects. Owner claims no lane change assist and Sport Mode in this car even though brochure claims otherwise. ️ But to be fair, it is surprising to see such defects in a brand new car like this. Did Borneo simply rushed to push these early units without much checks on their end? I remembered reading one of user mentioning here or some other Altis thread overhearing an angry new Altis owner shouting at SE in the Borneo Showroom because of lack of Sport Mode or something. Can't help but to think if it is the same guy. 🤔

    Seems like one of the unhappy first batch owners has already place his Altis up for sale with a full disclaimer. 🤔 https://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=878381

    Hyundai Venue

    From LTA Fuel Cost Calculator site, Venue falls in Band B, no surcharge to be seen. Did they try testing the Avante or Cerato with this new Smartstream engine?

    2020 Kia Seltos any news?

    Kia Singapore website already got a page for registration of interest and confirmed launch at Singapore Motorshow 2020. https://www.cyclecarriage.com/sg/kia/events/all-new-kia-seltos-is-coming

    The 1.0T seems to be an India-exclusive engine for now, manufactured in India for Indian market only. Other markets mostly use the Smartstream 1.6, so not surprising to see us getting this engine instead.

    Judging from the feature list, it looks like the base model is already decent enough compared to the S model.

    Saw one brand new silver Altis parked at NIE yesterday. Was on a moving bus so only managed to get a glimpse. SMQ plate. Deliveries have already started?

    Honda Civic 2007 Repair/Maintenance

    Hi all, my family's FD4 has water seepage under the floor mat on the rear passenger side. Only on one side so far. Happened a few days back and happened again today after today's downpour. Anyone had same issue before? Any advice on what could be the issue and how to solve? Thank you.

    I think there probably will still be Petrol only versions in Japan. Google translated the Japan Honda Fit site and this line caught my eye. Curious to see if it is still a carryover 1.3/1.5 engines or new 1.0T as rumoured.

    https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-tokyo-motor-show/hybrid-only-honda-jazz-revealed Looks like it's going to be Hybrid-only for the new Jazz/Fit even outside Europe. Detailed specifications on powertrains not released yet though.

    Yup, Thailand Jazz models are assembled in their local Thai manufacturing plant, alongside City, where Kah's City came from. Hopefully Jazz continues to be imported from Japan. The HR-V is Japan made too. Kah initially brought in the Thai-made HR-V but I guess it couldn't match PI Vezel at that time in terms of features and price, switched to bring in Japan made HR-V instead.

    Likely PIs will bring in the Fit before Kah does. If there’s indeed only 1.0T and hybrid versions, it is very unlikely that we will see this new Jazz be in the same price range as the current one. Wonder if Kah will import the Thailand or Japan assembled version of the Jazz?

    Yup, was shocked to learn of the 2 airbags on the CR-V 5 seat, considering it is priced so close to the similarly sized Harrier Turbo from BM and that had the suite of Toyota Safety Sense features plus more airbags. Not to mention the Vios and Altis have 7 airbags as well.
