    Which Auto car has best FC?

    With the rising price of petrol, it is prudent to have a 2nd car with good FC. Can anyone suggests the top 3 cars with the best FC? Auto and not manual. I am thinking the Kelisa is one of them. Any others?

    Budget ? If local - I suggesy Perodua MyVi - with airbags and ABS etc ... nice good car almost can use as main car, main drawback, small boot - I don't recommend Kelisa - too light, can be dangerous .... no major safety features ...

    Foreign ? - go for the hybrid - Honda Insight - got mileage etc ... drawback 2X MyVi price ...

    I don't think MyVi had good FC. Vios can get better FC.

    Do you travel a lot? Good FC are important when you travel a lot. and i mean like 20,000-30,000km per year. It is more important to find a car with good safety feature and low depreciation.

    Let's do a quick calculation on a Myvi.
    If you travel 25,000km per year. You will pay petrol of 25,000 x 0.15/km = RM3,750. Say petrol price increase around (hopefully not happen) 20% (RM1.90 to 2.30). Effect is RM750 per year.

    However, depreciation of a car below RM100,000 varies all the way from RM2,500 to RM7,000 per year. This is crucial.

    I understand Myvi had one of the best resale value in market now.

    If new car go for Myvi, cheap maintenance. If 2nd hand Vios. If boot is not an issue(for 2nd car), Yaris cos 2nd hand is cheap.
    If not me, who? If not now, when?

    I read in the Kelisa forum that they can get 600 km on a full tank for a manual. That means 10 cent per km. For auto, it fluctuates so it is not consistent. I sat on both Kelisa and Myvi and I like Kelisa better. Maybe I should opt for manual and ask wifey to get used to it.

    Estimated around 1L-15km. Maybe highway at constant speed but if town(stop & go) can get 500km is good enough.

    Oh, 500 km is very good. When fuel price is US$200 a barrel, 500km per full tank is king.

    Change fuel filter, transmission oil, coolant. Put in V-Power Racing to digest the deposits and bring your car on a ride along the NSE to 'rejuvenate' it. Check tire pressure.

    Sure wanna go back to manual? Not suitable for USJ's traffic condition. Cost are important, and so are practicality in driving.

    The whole purpose is lower FC in view of the coming high petrol prices. Practicality will have to take a back seat. Otherwise, will buy an Alfa Romeo as 2nd car. Wifey will love it. Anyway, still got Camry to use if comfort and safety is needed.

    Suggest you go and test drive the Kelisa and MyVi - then I bet you you will take MyVi - even better get wifey to test drive - big difference

    I already tested the Kelisa. Myvi no but sat at the back and was horrified at the bad suspension. Moreover Myvi costs more than RM12K to the cheapest (oldest) Kelisa. So, do not feel like paying so much for a 2nd car which hardly covers 500 km a month. I prefer to put the money into the 1st car, my car. Thinking of the newer Camry (ACV30) or the older big eye, small eye Mercedes (W210).

    True , MyVi cost more - but for airbags and ABS and better safety features than Kelisa ... I have driven both for donkey years ... my experience, minimum MyVi - more stable and safer ... not because of you as a bad driver but the other CRAZY drivers

    Point taken. An airbag is good. I did not know that Myvi has airbags. No wonder they are speeding on the highway.

    Seat belt saves more live than airbag.
