  1. Hi All, i had recently purchased a 'new' 08 kia cerato variant 2, intending it to service my needs of ferrying my family and kiddo around. Everything seems well and fine, until i went for a fan belt, water pump change 2 weeks later, as i want the car to be in perfect running condition. After the change, things starts going haywire.. the car temperature gauge starts to creep up past 1/2 point mark, till 3/4 to 'Hot'. This happened when i drove the car for some time (30 mins or so?) and when the car is idling either from traffic lights, or parked in the parking lot. Rev-ing the car in neutral, or moving off will result in temperature dropping. Fan is spinning when aircon is on, fan is spinning when aircon is off as well, hence mech said its isnt the issue. Went back to garage the next day, was advised to changed out radiator and refresh a few hoses, as the radiator were kinda chocked with, and it even choked several hoses as well. Thermostat had been removed as well -.- Sadly, after doing all the changes, the issue still persist. Noticed during the testing of car after installation done, air bubbles were present in the coolant reserve tank. Mech said most likely head gasket is gone as well. Curious any bro or sis or gurus had any similar experiences on this? how much roughly will the repair cost be this time? Sigh :/ Thanks!
  2. A Honda Vezel with a license plate number of 6000 rams straight into a tree at Ubi outside the Opel showroom as shown in the picture below. This is not the first time a vehicle with a license plate number of ‘6000’ has gotten into trouble recently. In fact, this is correlated with a string of unfortunate incidents at Causeway and Second Link. Each vehicle also had a license plate with the number 6000, including the infamous ‘mother and son’ duo that had gone viral recently, stunning the internet when she managed to rip the license plate of the vehicle behind her and smash it into the windscreen. The Tuas Second Link road rage incident has become an internet sensation, sparking memes across social media as well as the doxxing of the woman involved in the incident. There was apparently also another recent incident with the license plate number ‘6000’ when the lorry plowed through cars on the Woodlands causeway, causing yet another eventful incident between the borders of Singapore and Malaysia. 11 vehicles were collided into based on the suspicion of faulty brakes. Many people have even bet on the number 6000 at 4D gambling outlets after these particular incidents with the age-old anticipation that it’ll be the winning number. This led to the phenomenon of the ‘6000’ number being fully sold out on the Singapore Pools website. Unfortunately, it did not end up being the winning number Back to the topic at hand… Coming back to this, it’s astonishing that the license plate number 6000 has managed to land itself into hot water once more. This time, the Honda Vezel has managed to ram itself headfirst into a tree at Ubi outside the Opel showroom. Almost makes you think what’s the point in bidding an insane amount for a premium license plate when it’s simply driven by ‘bodohs’ Judging from the prices found online, the price of a license plate with the numeral ‘6000’ in it seems to start from $3.9k to a whopping $7.4k. Just imagine bidding so much for a license plate just to have drivers like these take the wheel. Netizen Comments Netizens express their own take at the situation at hand, mostly bemoaning the bad luck that the license plate number apparently brings them. If you want a smooth sailing road trip, it might be best not to come close to a car with a license plate number of 6000. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  3. Am thinking of changing to a sedan from a crossover, due to itchy backside, excuses are unsatisfactory fc and poor acceleration, before my legs are too weak to squat getting into car. What's your preference and what you think of each choice ? Hope to get some pointers from fellow forumers. Thanks.
  4. In this footage uploaded by SG Road Vigilante, a speeding Kia Cerato lost control and collided with a Blue Toyota Prius along CTE (Before Yio Chu Kang Exit). LATEST UPDATE : According to TNP, two men were arrested for suspected drink driving. Meanwhile, the driver of the car that flipped over looked to be in a bad condition. The SCDF said the driver & his passenger were taken to Sengkang General Hospital. Both were conscious. (Source) Here's the video: Here's the unfortunate Prius, driving patiently on a relatively empty CTE: After the Cerato collided, it sent both cars crashing into the railing, and the poor Prius was flipped over. We're not sure why the Cerato lost control, because it's a relatively straight road. We're also not sure how fast the Cerato was going, but it looked like it was speeding. Here's the reaction between the passenger and driver of the cam car: Cam Car Driver: Why are they speeding, for what??? Cam Car Passenger (Man) A: Maybe drunk? *after driving off* Cam Car Passenger (Lady): Thank you so much for being alert! Cam Car Driver: I wasn't being alert - we are lucky! We are f***ing lucky man!!! The video also sparked some reactions by fellow netizens: We hope the drivers and passengers in involved in the accident are okay, and will post an update here once we receive the latest news.
  5. No, it's not clickbait! The Cerato drove right into the motorist and sends him sprawling from shock and the impact. This happened on 20th January, on the west coast highway, The Cerato driver obviously had his eyes on the wheel, apparently, given how he drove right into the motorist. Who would've thought that this day would come? That we'd actually see an idi*t blatantly driving into someone else. I braced myself watching this and felt my heart wrench into anxious anticipation of what could happen LOL. My guess is that the driver was either irresponsibly texting, using his mobile phone or making TikTok videos. Or, he could have dozed off for a bit after a late night's up – but this doesn't absolve him of any responsibility for being such a road hazard. This looks like a scene in a drama where xxx tries hurt zzz out of jealousy and tries to make it look like an accident. Like in Stairway To Heaven. *dramatic heart-wrenching angry music plays* 🥺 Here's what the others on SG Road Vigilante's YT channel had to say: Attempted murder is a tad dramatic but the hit was so blatant and head-on!!! Ugh, some people really don't deserve to drive. 🥵🥵🥵 Imagine your body sprawled on the highway with cars furiously zooming by, still unaware of whatever happened... yikes. My heart goes out to the poor unsuspecting motorist who did not see it coming, literally. I hope he's alright – mentally and physically. No sympathy for the Cerato, unless he had a pretty damn good reason for this. This Cerato driver is the epitome of "your eyes grow on your buttock" ok. 😤
  6. My current ride will be scrapping in December, am considering between the Elantra S and Cerato EX not ruling out other options looks the Jazz 1.5 The Hyundai is at the tail end of its current facelift with 2019 model already announced. Whereas the Cerato is a brand new facelift. Was actually quite biased against against Kia before yesterday as I totally hated the old Cerato, forte, and k3. So my test drive for the Cerato was pretty biased also. Until yesterday after I paid a second visit to Hyundai, then decided to pop by C&C just to look at the c4 cactus, the Cerato was parked outside. The more I look at it, the more the looks grow on me. So went inside the showroom again, have a sit inside the Cerato’s cabin......is like totally win the Elantra many times over. I don’t reallly mind the exterior of the Elantra S but I find the interior very dated. The Cerato EX cost more, but the equipment level is close to the Elantra elite. Weight wise, the Elantra is 100kg heavier Engine wise, the Cerato is using an older generation engine. (This is my main concern) I test drive both cars, but am unable to get any head on conclusion as I went to test drive the Elantra at leng kee and the Cerato at ubi. I don’t know is it psychological, but the Hyundai felt smoother and picks up abit easier. The additional 50l boot space of the Cerato doesn’t concern me much.
  7. Budget about $30K Depri about $5K I30 vs Avante vs Cerato Any thoughts on these or any other recommendations?
  8. Hi all, I bought a second hand Kia Cerato V2 manual transmission about a year ago. Generally very satisfied with the car however whenever the car is stucked in a heavy jam under hot sun, i tend to experience the clutch pedal to be gradually harder and harder to be depressed ( to a point it feels like racing clutch). However after i cleared the jam and travelled for about 15mins the clutch feel will be back to normal. Wondering if any other bros experienced such issues before. My previous kelisa and vios manual transmission did not experience such issues before. Looking forward to kind inputs and suggestions. Cheers.
  9. Hi bros, fellow colleague wants to choose between the 3 cars....even though they may not be of the exact price range. Any bros who have experience in these 3 cars can feedback the goods and bads of each one? hehe
  10. Dear All.. I would like to seek advise from all of u on regards of these 2 cars. Thanx very much!1
  11. I have tried to search for similar issue in this forum, but couldn't find any. So I decide to start a new thread, hope someone can advice me. The issue with my 2009 Kia Cerato Forte steering wheel is when travelling at highway speed (eg. 100km/h), whenever i need to make a slight adjustment to the steering wheel (eg. 5 degrees to the right), the steering wheel seems to stuck, and I need to use a bit of strengthen to turn it. This has nothing to do with the steering wheel getting heavier at higher speed. I don't encounter the same issue when travelling at low speed. I think my car's steering wheel is electric powered, as when I open the bonnet, I don't see steering fluid reservoir. Anyone has any idea what's wrong with the steering wheel on my car?
  12. ok. the last time i drove an Avante, it was rented and that was like > 3 years ago. i now got a new ride, an 09 forte. i find the mirrors a tad narrow as compared to my old ride. i was wondering, if any brudders here ever replace their side view mirrors for their Forte before. ever wondered if the Avante side view can be used on the Forte?
  13. Kia has released official sketches of Cerato 2013.Kia claims the new Cerato is completely redesigned and will be longer, lower, wider and more spacious than outgoing model. Expected to be relased in first quarter of 2013. What a handsome car!
  14. Anyone has more info on the new K3? Heard it will arrive in our shores by Mid Year. Will it be better than the current Elantra? What's your guess on the price? Same as the Elantra? Discuss n any info on the engine, chassis is most welcomed.

  18. Sorry, I bumped lightly into your car while reversing at Ngee Ann Alumni. When i got down from the car, I checked my bumper, there were no cracks nor dents on my bumper. Did an inspection of your car too, no cracks nor dents. I even took a picture of the front of your car before leaving. As I had no paper nor pen with me, I didnt leave down my contact details. If you do happen to read this forum, please do not hesitate to PM me if you see any dents or cracks on your ride, sincerely sorry as I was sleepy and yawning and it was pretty dark at the back of the carpark.
  19. We know these cars are not so new but would like to see which is the better car.
