  6. From ST Forum: http://www.straitstimes.com/archive/saturd...al-fix-20120929 Don't let insurers leave car owners in renewal fix Published on Sep 29, 2012 MY FAMILY car has been insured for more than 10 years without any claim, and had accumulated a no-claim discount of 50 per cent. Recently, the car got into an accident while being driven by my daughter. Although she is a young driver, she has three years of driving experience. I had to pay an excess of $3,200 for the claim, including the excess for a young driver, and lost the no-claim discount. My insurance policy is due to expire soon, but NTUC Income has refused to renew it on account of the claim, explaining its decision as "market practice". I was told to find another insurer. I tried to do so but was rejected or slapped with unfair and unrealistically excessive renewal fees because of the claim. It is compulsory for a car to be insured before it can be driven on the road. NTUC Income should know that accidents can happen unexpectedly and that they cannot be avoided. That is why insurance is necessary. By rejecting my renewal, how does it expect me to find insurance elsewhere? In my case, I have already paid a large amount of excess and lost my no-claim discount. Are these not enough? The Monetary Authority of Singapore should look into market practices that deprive motorists of compulsory motor coverage. Tan Yau Cher

  9. By Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 01 July 2008 1419 hrs SINGAPORE: Car owners will now have the option to exchange their Preferential Additional Registration Fee (PARF) and the Certificate of Entitlement (COE) rebates for cash. The change follows a government review of the rebates to make it easier for motorists to give up their cars and switch to public transport. From September 1, registered owners of un-used and valid PARF/COE rebates can apply to the Land Transport Authority for encashment. Once their applications are processed, they will receive a refund equivalent to the rebate amount. To facilitate the implementation of this change, PARF/COE rebates with expiry dates between July 1 and September 29 will be extended to the end of September. Those affected will be informed of the revised expiry dates within the next two weeks. Motorists who wish to use their PARF/COE rebates to offset the upfront taxes for a new vehicle can continue to do so. The LTA says it will continue to issue rebates to car owners upon de-registration of their vehicles. The rebates will remain transferable and valid for 12 months to provide flexibility to vehicle owners. Transport Minister Raymond Lim had announced in March this year that the government would be reviewing the PARF and COE rebates. This was to tie in with the overall effort to make public transport a choice mode for all commuters, including car owners. - CNA/yb http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin.../357513/1/.html[/b] at last some good news for car owners giving up on their rides.

    Matrix owners pls cum in...

    i cannot move both 60/40 rear seats back and forward, even with handle up. Front seats no problem. Is there a lock or switch sth i have to release?
  13. Interesting article. If the driver is a private property occupier then I see this may pose a challenge but if the driver resides in a HDB unit (either as a owner or renting it from someone else), he or she has to purchase a SPT so they have to provide their particulars to the board. Unless they do not have SPTs and use day & night parking coupons instead or the HDB does not share their system data with the mata, I do not see how the vehicle driver is claimed to be untraceable in this case. From ST Forum: http://www.straitstimes.com/STForum/Story/...ory_815408.html My Point Published on Jun 27, 2012 Tracing vehicle owners ON MONDAY, a car alarm sounded at the carpark at Block 204, Compassvale Drive in Sengkang. The matter was reported to the police, but at 1am yesterday, the alarm had not been switched off. When I went to the carpark and asked a police officer about the matter, he said the police were unable to trace the current owner of the car, as it was registered to a company that was closed at that time. This highlights an important issue about tracing vehicle owners. How would the police handle more serious cases, such as vehicle break-ins and suspicious packages found inside vehicles? There should be a system whereby the police can promptly trace all vehicles to their current owners. Siddharth Shah

Focus was rather good when the object is like 1meter away from the lens.' No idea why the lens was tuned to near focus when the purpose was to focus on objects 20~30 meters infront of the car.

  21. Looking for a used car, and realize many with either very high mileage (>30k per year), or many owners (3). Those with low mileage and 1 owner are high very high price. Given no choice (means ur budget dun permit a low mileage and 1 owner car), which one would you go for? A reasonable mileage car with many owners? or a one owner car with very high mileage? I even saw some cars with 3 owners and very high mileage, but condition is good.... price v low! comments?

    SgCarMart - Owners

    Business Times - 21 Feb 2012 SME INC It's full speed ahead for sgCarMart Online car portal sgCarMart's annual turnover is some $5m with over 10,000 listings on its site, report EDWIN LOH & JASMINE NG THIRTY-YEAR-OLD Vincent Tan Boon Kiat's experience is best epitomised by this line from Robert Frost's famous poem - he took the one less travelled and that has made all the difference. He took a step off the conventional path during his university days to develop local online car advertising and resource portal sgCarMart.com. 'Everyone during my time was doing engineering; about 80 per cent of the guys were doing engineering because it's safe. It's safe but didn't have good prospects,' says Vincent, who graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) in mechanical engineering. 'For my partners and I, our courses in university have always been Plan B. Plan A was to do something else but we had to figure out what it was going to be,' he adds. Incorporated in June 2004, sgCarMart was born out of an idea that Vincent and his partners, Henry Seah and Tan Jing Lun, had when they were students at NUS. During their first summer holidays, Vincent and Henry were tossing up between giving tuition and starting their own business. After evaluating their opportunity cost and career prospects, they decided to go with the latter. 'Our opportunity cost was very low. It was just forsaking tuition. We thought the prospects of being an engineer were also not very good,' Vincent says. The astute entrepreneur subsequently came up with the idea of an online car portal as he found there were no big players in the market then. 'There were many small players but no one visible,' Vincent adds. From there, he roped in his close friends, Henry and Jing Lun, and they took on different roles in the business based on their strengths. Vincent was the brains behind the operation and focused on developing the business strategy. Henry, who was in the school's chemical engineering course, was stronger at marketing and public relations, while Jing Lun was the architect for the website with his background in IT. In the beginning, sgCarMart acted as a platform for car owners and businesses to list their cars for sale. It also offered car buyers a consolidated source of information to help in their car-buying decisions. The journey was a rough one. Vincent recalls having to make endless cold calls and run around car dealerships to offer them their services. He explains that it was not easy to get sales for such high-involvement products, as dealers were depending mainly on print advertising then and were not receptive to online advertising. 'Even when we offered our services for free, people didn't want it. They didn't know anything about it and felt it was a waste of time because they wouldn't get anything out of it,' he says. If things then looked bad on the business end, Vincent did not find it any easier dealing with family. His father, who is also a car dealer, was sceptical of his son's business model, deeming it not feasible. The support extended to helping the fledging business along was to allow Vincent the use of the family car to get around to meet clients. Eventually, his father softened his stance and agreed to lend his son a helping hand by introducing business partners and industry contacts. Their perseverance eventually paid off in 2007, when they were about to graduate. The trio never expected that one day this would be their full-time profession, earning them much more than just pocket money. As Vincent puts it, the three of them finally saw light at the end of the tunnel when car dealers became more receptive to technology and started to list their cars online. 'In 2007, we finally reached the critical mass (that we needed). When we graduated, the company could break even by paying our salary - but it was at a 'pay-cut',' he said. While they could have been earning about $2,800 a month as engineers upon graduation, they could only afford to draw a salary of less than $2,000 a month from the business. Looking back, Vincent says he has no regrets. Had he not taken his chances then, he reckons that he would now perhaps be a senior engineer awaiting his next promotion scaling the corporate ladder. 'I don't even know if there's such a post as senior engineer!' he quips. Not that it matters now. Today, sgCarMart's annual turnover is some $5 million with over 10,000 listings on its site. Its stellar report card earned it a place on the list of Singapore's top 1,000 small and medium enterprises. The bulk of sgCarMart's revenue comes from car listings while labour makes up the bulk of his operating cost. The once three-man outfit is now a bustling office with 40 staff under the different arms of the business. The services offered are: used car classified system, new car listings, motor directory listing (which includes repair services and car-grooming workshops), editorial content, and a car forum which sgCarMart bought in 2007 as a discussion platform for customers. With so many listings, Vincent says the company is able to keep track and update the listings because they charge for them. A listing on sgCarMart will cost $38 to run for six weeks. 'All listings are updated within the last 30 days. We call (our customers) to update the listings regularly - this is a service we provide because it's a paid listing,' he says, adding that the firm takes pride in the accuracy of its listing. Since its inception, the firm has seen a constantly growing market as the listing rate has outstripped dropout rates. 'We have not hit any plateau so far. Business has always been going up; it's only a matter of how fast the rate of increase is,' Vincent says. Even the financial crisis in 2009 did little to dampen the company's growth, he adds. Earlier this year, the firm unveiled the launch of a new one-stop online car transaction service, sgCarMart Connect, to assist motor vehicle buyers and sellers in their transaction process. Its services include sgCarMart.com listings, insurance sourcing, car loans, 'Buyer Protected' vehicle ownership transfer, and legal documentation. With sgCarMart Connect, the firm says it not only covers the information gap, but it also covers the transactional gap. 'Even if you can find a buyer, there's nobody there to do the transaction like loan insurance, paperwork, and ownership transfer. SgCarMart is set up to overcome this transactional gap, to encourage more transactions between direct buyers and sellers,' Vincent says. The company is exploring opportunities in Indonesia and has received a $100,000 grant from IE Singapore. Its latest grant is from the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore of between $30,000 and $100,000. 'Indonesia is our first step forward; it's sort of a testing bed for us. If it's successful, we may expand into other countries in the region,' Vincent says. Currently, the business in Jakarta offers three products: new car listings, after-market products directory, and editorial content. Vincent says the firm is looking to grow the number of products offered there. When he first started out, Vincent says he knew 'nuts about cars'. Today, he tells a different story. 'After being in the car industry for so long, I can name you any car on the road so long as I see the profile of the car,' he says.
  24. http://www.asiaone.com/News/Latest%2BNews/...110-320829.html Nine in 10 flats bought from HDB not resold seven years on 2,883 direct-purchase flats were sublet within the two-year period after Minimum Occupation Period completion. -myp Tue, Jan 10, 2012 my paper Housing issues were a focus in yesterday's parliamentary session, with topics such as resale flats and upgrading being raised. In a written reply, the Ministry of National Development (MND) said that more than 7,200 flats which had been bought directly from the Housing Board (HDB) were sold between January 2007 and November last year. The flats, which were sold on the resale market within two years after their five-year Minimum Occupation Period (MOP), formed 9 per cent of such flats that were eligible for resale. The remaining 91 per cent were not sold or involved in any property transactions. The statement, made in reply to Dr Lim Wee Kiak, an MP for Nee Soon GRC, also said that 2,883 direct-purchase flats were sublet within the two-year period after MOP completion. Of these, 971 flats were rented out to Singapore permanent residents over the same period. Senior Parliamentary Secretary for National Development Mohamad Maliki Osman also fielded questions from MPs on whether HDB would consider installing ramps at subsidised cost for elderly or disabled residents. Dr Maliki explained that such a project would not be feasible, due to space constraints along the corridors of flats. There were also fire-safety issues that had to be taken into consideration. But he said residents who want to build a ramp at their own cost can submit a request to HDB or the relevant town council, depending on the type of ramp to be installed. He added that such requests will be evaluated on a case-by- case basis, to ensure that the ramp does not cause "disamenities" to other residents. Providing an update on the HDB's Home Improvement Programme, Minister of State for National Development Lee Yi Shyan said MND will speed up the initiative to cover 160,000 more flats over the next five years. He added that the budget for the programme will also be increased by about 20 per cent. The programme was introduced in 2007 to upgrade older flats and to address maintenance issues. Since then, 5,800 flats have undergone upgrading works. Daryll Nanayakara and Sophie Hong
  25. Owners of CNG cars can switch to petrol The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has issued notices to all car dealers that vehicles running on compressed natural gas (CNG) can switch to a petrol-only option starting from this month. The Straits Times had reported in October that the authority was considering such a move. Among the problems cited by drivers of CNG vehicles was the scarcity of pump stations. There are roughly 2,700 owners of such cars in Singapore. A workshop worker handling CNG tanks. CNG car drivers face long queues at fuelling stations because of their scarcity. -- ST FILE PHOTO http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/S...ory_741353.html should i???
