Car selection process
- I had a budget of: around 60k
- Models that I have considered include: Perodua Myvi & Nissan Almera
Reasons why I chose this car
Out of the three cars that met my budget and needs.I preferred this car because it stood out as the most driver focused car out of the three.It had better steering response,brakes and more safety features for the price.

I find it as a good car to use around town and long distance driving is also acceptable. It has been reliable and a good workhorse. Maintenance is not costly given the options for aftermarket parts available.
- Adequate safety features
- Easy to park and drive around town
- Small boot space
- Rear seat legroom is tight
- Not suitable for regular highway use

Interesting events that happened to my car
The ABS (anti-lock braking) light once turned on.I brought it over to a few auto repair shops to obtain the fault code from the system but it had short circuited and couldn't read the system or find any codes. One suspected that the computer processor in the anti lock braking module had burnt due to heat in the engine bay. So I had it replaced with a used one and it solved the issue.
