  • Review: W213 2021 Mercedes-Benz E300 - A facelift shouldn't be this much better

    Getting a new Mercedes-Benz to evaluate is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you’re going to get. Personally, Im not the biggest fan of the W205 C-Class nor the W176 A-Class, both of which lacked the substance to back their attractive styling.Ride comfort of those two are spec-dependent, ranging from "It’s liveable" to “Dear lord, have they forgotten about suspension tuning?” Worse still, the poor ride quality didn’t exactly translate to drivi

  • Used 5-year old Kia Cerato (YD) – From RM 50k, as reliable as a Corolla, better equipped, how much to maintain and repair?

    The Kia Cerato is a charming alternative to the typical C-segment sedans offerings from Honda, Toyota or Nissan.Spanning just three generations (if we include the Kia Forte), the Cerato is a relative newcomer to the sedan segment here but with an emphasis on design, premium features, and safety, it has managed to somewhat carve out a niche for buyers who wish to buck the trend with their purchases.However, the double-edged sword of buying a brand new Korean car is the higher rates of depreciatio
