‘Dash cam’ boleh bantu pemandu Malaysia jadi lebih berhemah?

Penggunaan ‘dash cam’ atau kamera papan pemuka kereta sememangnya banyak faedahnya. Pemandu Malaysia mana yang tak pernah tersekat dalam kesesakan lalulintas disebabkan kemalangan yang BUKANNYA dalam belah lorong jalan sendiri? Sebelah sana yang ‘accident’, sebelah sini pulak yang ‘stuck’.Tabiat gemar melihat dan berkongsi rakaman kemalangan sememangnya sebati dengan kebanyakan warga kita. Antara sebabnya ialah mungkin kita nak belajar dari kesilapan orang lai

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

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

2020 Honda new models – Accord, City, and more for Malaysia!

Surprising as it may sound, Honda Malaysia launched only one new model in 2019, which was the facelifted Honda HR-V. That marks quite a drop, considering that Honda Malaysia was rather aggressive with new product launches back in 2017 and 2018. The reason is due to delays in pricing approvals by the government, which not only delayed products from Honda, but other manufacturers as well.Pay BMW money for an Accord?The all-new tenth-generation Honda Accord has found its way across multip

Are hatchbacks better than sedans?

Back when Proton sedans were the most popular in Malaysia, one would never really think of owning a hatchback. Hatchbacks were associated with being tiny like the Kancil and not fit for long journeys. Later came the Perodua Kelisa in 2001, which was bigger than the Kancil, but still small. They were at best, the second car in the garage.Perhaps the most significant consumer shift to hatchbacks happened when the Perodua Myvi came to being in 2005.
