  • Nissan Serena vs Toyota Voxy: Which family MPV should you get?
    Good Reads

    Let’s face it, for a lot of Malaysians, the ideal family mover is not that fancy SUV. Instead, the ideal family mover, especially for those with young kids or elderly parents, is an MPV.In Malaysia, the options for MPVs are aplenty, but we reckon that the ideal MPV is one that has powered sliding doors, thus narrowing down the selection by quite a fair bit.For those shopping for a family MPV, the most affordable option that features power sliding doors is a brand-new C27 Nissan Serena.Reco

  • What to do if your AEB-equipped car has a broken windscreen?
    Good Reads

    The short answer is that the AEB hardware needs to be recalibrated, which can only be done at an authorized service centre (at the moment, unless there is an independent repairer here that has invested in the necessary tools).You can still have the windscreen replaced at the windscreen repairer of your choice, but after replacing the glass, you need to bring the car back to the authorized service centre to have the AEB camera recalibrated.Well, this is the unfortunate downside of insisting on ha

  • The Nissan Z Proto is a better design of the Nissan Z concept car from 1999
    Good Reads

    The Nissan Z Proto is a perfect mixture of past Z cars (or as Chief Designer at Nissan, Alfonso Albaisa called it, memories) and the future of Nissan. Some people might say it is merely an evolution of the 370Z but clearly, there is more to that.In fact, it is probably a better reworking of what Nissan had done a little over 20 years ago with a Z concept also known as the 240Z Concept.Things weren’t doing so well financially for Nissan in the late nineties. Sure, the Skyline GT-R was about

  • Is the road tax actually cheaper for electric cars in Malaysia?
    News

    We’ve seen the launch of the Porsche Taycan and the MINI Cooper SE in Malaysia this year. They were surprisingly priced lower than our expectations. The MINI Cooper SE has a price tag of RM 218,380 and the Taycan 4S starts at RM 725,000.We did expect the MINI to be priced lower than the BMW i3s, but the Taycan is cheaper in Malaysia than it is in Thailand. The “low” price of these cars could be a result of the 10% excise tax on all electric cars as opposed to 60% to 1

  • Dash cams might do more than record accidents, it might fix our behaviour
    Good Reads

    Road conduct and rules may differ, but there is one trait Malaysian road users share with the rest of the world, and that is our morbid curiosity with road accidents. Just like the rest of the world, we rubberneck at accident scenes and upload dash cam footage to the internet. Though trying to score that lucky “nombor empat ekor” looks to be a uniquely Malaysian thing.Whether you think dash cams are an invasion of privacy or the best thing to happen to YouTube, the fact is it is here

  • Ratings: 2020 Honda Civic 1.5 TC-P - Most spacious but not the most fuel efficient
    Reviews

    Cars competing in the C-segment saloon category include the Toyota Corolla Altis, the Mazda 3, and the Honda Civic. The 1.5-litre turbocharged Civic is assembled in Malaysia and is competitively priced.

  • 30 years ago, the Honda NSX changed the supercar world forever
    Good Reads

    Imagine you’re transported back to the late eighties and you heard news of Honda developing its own supercar. You could be scoffing at the thought of the makers of the humble Civic and Accord jumping onto the supercar bandwagon against the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini.But when the Honda NSX made its debut in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show (as an Acura) and the Tokyo Motor Show (as a Honda), the international media went into a frenzy. The NSX became an icon, a legend, and a benchmark in
