Each option offers its own pros and cons.1. Full-sized sparesA full-sized spare

Here's why having a spare wheel won't do you much good

An increasingly prevalent practice for carmakers nowadays is to sell buyers a car that comes without a spare wheel (wheel, in this context is tyre + rim). In its place could be run flat tyres, a tyre pressure monitor system, or a more agricultural solution like a tyre repair kit.Image creditMany buyers are up in arms because of this, grumbling that carmakers are shortchanging them, or putting more expensive solutions in place. But lets dig deeper and ask ourselves, is this a valid argument? Do y

Counterfeit vs original spare parts: How to tell?

On the surface, the air filter and spark plug you bought from your neighbourhood spare parts shop look just like the original item, except that you’ve paid just a fraction of the price you would have otherwise paid at an authorised service centre.But little do you know, the spare parts you just bought are in fact counterfeit items, not original as what the shop owner told you.Counterfeit spare parts have been floating around in the market for the longest time, but how do you identify which

Why Perodua isn’t replacing the Alza yet

The Perodua Alza is a 7-seater MPV that was introduced here back in 2009, which makes it one of the oldest new cars you can purchase today.Despite being 11 years old, Perodua won’t be pulling the plug on the Alza just yet, as the company recently reiterated that it won’t be discontinued any time soon.Old as it may be, the Alza still does its job wellDeveloping a brand-new Alza isn’t Perodua’s top priority at the moment, as the MPV market is slowing down and Perodua's

When was the last time you checked your tyre pressure?

I know I haven’t checked mine in a while, to be fair. I also can’t remember the last time I pumped air into my tyres, let alone checking the tyre pressure.It wasn’t until my colleague Adrian pointed out that the ride of my car felt odd, and recommended that I checked my tyre pressure just to be sure.I swung by a nearby petrol station to get my tyre pressure checked, and yes, all four of my tyres had really low pressure, one of them as low as 23 PSI. Yup, 23

Should you get your tyres plugged or patched?

No matter how advanced your car is, a tyre puncture is an occurrence you’ll have to endure every once in a while. Even if you have run flat tyres, a puncture still needs to be fixed. While massive punctures are usually unfixable, the common puncture is usually caused by a single nail or screw.A screw in a tyreIn the case of a puncture, you should get it fixed immediately, either by changing to a spare wheel, limping to the nearest tyre shop to get it fixed, or just doing it yourself.

Have you ever wondered what Bibendum on your tyre wall is pointing at?

How do you check your tyre wear? Universally, we are taught to hold a coin within the grove of the tyre to check the depth of the treads.It took quite a bit of digging before I found the Malaysian coin version of the test.If all the alphabets of the words Bank Negara Malaysia on your 10 cent coin is on show when you hold the coin to the tread, it means it’s time to change your tyres.But did you not know that there is an even better fool proof test you can carry out without the use of coins

Why is my tyre shop trying to sell me nitrogen gas inflation?

You might have come across this scenario while sending your car to your neighbourhood tyre shop – after the job is done, whatever it may be, the tyre shop will try to upsell you nitrogen gas inflation for your tyres. You will mostly be shown some materials or be told that it is better to fill your tyres with pure nitrogen rather than regular air. You will also be told that nitrogen-filled tyres will save you fuel, prolong the lifespan of your tyre, require lesser maintenance, and are

为什么Perodua还不为Alza更新换代

Perodua Alza是一款7人座的MPV,于2009年首次发售,所以它是今天你能买到的车型最老的新车。虽然从发布到现在已经过去了11年,但Perodua仍旧没有放弃Alza,他们近期也表示暂时没有让Alza停产的打算。虽然有点老,但是Alza仍旧很好用开发全新的Alza并不是Perodua当下的首要计划,因为MPV市场的增长速度正在减缓,而且Perodua现在也将重点放在了SUV上。Alza也是Perodua销量增长最慢的车型,即使是在多年前首次发售时也是如此。而事实上,随着Proton Ertiga的停产,Alza也没有了直接的竞争对手。Alza在其11年的生命周期中有过多次升级因此,Perodua并没有必要开发新款Alza来更新换代Perodua D55L即将来临另外,Perodua也把资源都分配到了D55L的开发工作上去了,这是他们即将推出的B级SUV,配备了一系列Perodua特有的功能,包括一具全新的涡轮增压引擎。Avanza最近的改款让它看上去有些像迷你版的Vellfire尽管如此,但是事情在未来也可能会有变化,因为Perodua已经在对几款MPV进行路测了,其中包括S
