Summary :

I came back from Saudi in 2011 looking for new job and new car. My ideal car is cheap to buy and to maintain, have a big space as I'm looking for long term use as family car and comfortable. The car actually caught my eyes when it was launched 2010 with Merc like rear tail light. I would said that the car is a good purchase. I have drove the car around the whole Peninsular Malaysia and the furthers I have drove is from Selangor to Betong, Thailand . So far, the only modification I have made was to change the intake manifold from IAFM which have around 5 years life span to intake from Iriz. The car felt a bit under power low rpm but it still do its job well. I probably will do some restoration when the trip meter reaches 200k just to refresh the engine and make prolong the lifespan.

Lastly :

I don't think I have any specific or interesting event with the car. Apart from it never broke down I can say it lets me down. I think the best thing probably when I got married, my wife starts her liking towards the car and she said, never try to sell this car. If I wish to buy a new car, give that Persona to her. since then, we both promise to keep the car no matter how good or bad our life will become. We will pass down the car to our children hoping they will treasure the car as much as we both do.
