corolla is the best on fuel consumption. $10 of petrol goes a long way for me.

 

but then, the new altis is too lightweight...made in thailand somemore...my flen just total lost his 1 yr old altis..he din even had a scratch on his body, no airbags were open..but the car overturn.

 

he bought from me a honda jazz instead :D

Toyota is very good for FC and is very reliable. So far from my research, Nissan seems to be the worst fuel guzzler, followed by Mitsubishi. But at least Mitsu cars are not that ex. Honda tops the charts for fuel economy but the cars are more expensive.

 

Don't bother with American cars like Ford. They totally cannot make it. Here in NY State, you see 10+ year old Jap cars all the time, but seldom do you see an old Ford. Why? Cos all broke down and scrap liao!

All toyota vios, altis, camery, wish is assembled in thailand, the body and accessories is all fabricate in thailand, I think engine is ship from Japan from it's OEM manufacturer.

 

However heard the new G10 corolla is going to be fully assemble in Japan. Maybe that time, it will be as good as the good old G8 and G9 collora. But price wise may not be good

No, it the normal 4 door sedan in the same class as nissan sunndy, honda civic, mit lancer.

 

It's more like the older XLi and LX series U see on the road. But heard the GLi spec engine is better.

 

Anyway Corolla use 14" rim wherease the rest use 15" rim. probably that explain why the huge difference in fuel consumption.

any one drive altis here

Been driving dad's altis. Dun like the suspension, too soft. Good for straight roads but when corner or 90 degree turn, it sux. Had a friend working in toyota warehouse mentioning that the altis supension is being replaced in large quantities every month due to leakage.

FC is as bad as other makes when driving around in jams and small roads which i always travels on.

But as compared to other models like sunny, civic and lancer, is the fuel tank of altis bigger? 55L.

The best thing i like about altis is the noise filtering is very good.

Is shifting to neutral gear in auto car helps to consume lesser petrol while stopping rather than just stepping on brakes? And will it damage the auto gearbox if doing it often? (sorry it might sound silly, but heard that gear box of auto car is more fragile? )

i have heard of shifting to nuetral for red lights.according to the agents, its better to leave it at the automatic gear and hold the brakes.it saves wear and tear on the clutch plates.

hmm.. i've been doing it all the while. learnt it from my fren.. i find it logical lar. cos when its in D gear, its in gear 1 and its always in biting point.. ok, u guys think about it. if its a manual car, when its in biting point, its consuming petrol right? but when in neutral gear, it does not..

 

also, u ask pple who drive manual cars, when approaching red lights, they would usually hit the gear to neutral.. when i ask them, they say its to save petrol..

 

and for auto, i find tt its the same theory behind..

 

anyway, been driving altis for 1 week.. find the suspension not bad.. as in when crossing humps and stuff.. i find it quite stable.. if u guys happen to go to lornie from bishan, u guys might find the work in progress road very "curvy" .. i drove altis pass it and i find the its very stable..

 

all in all, altis is a good car but the FC seems to be quite high compared to corolla..
