Hence, she kinda like runs d occasional marathon and then vegetate in the porch, resulting in a weak heart. 3 battery change thus far...so my minimum techy car knowledge tells me that hybrid car weakest link is its battery...I am worried that the next mini tin can might surely morph into another porch potato, with possible lack of exercise heart issues. Aye?
In that case just buy a pre-owned MyVi 1.3L or 1.5L. Relatively cheap parts + service centres are everywhere.
Suzuki Swift is a nice car but the brand made a hasty retreat from our market. So, parts and service may be hard to find.
I had a Honda CR-Z (Hybrid) which also vegetates in the porch. When I sold it last year (after 4 years ownership) there is only 26,000 km on the odometer. It is a fun car.
