Does the Perodua Ativa (D55L) come with a spare wheel?

Although spare wheels are no longer offered in many premium cars (replaced with either run-flat tyres or tyre repair kits), spare wheels are still important for consumers shopping at the lower-end of the price spectrum. Prior to the Perodua Ativa’s (D55L) local launch, many Facebook users were saying that the Perodua Ativa doesn’t come with a spare wheel. This is not true. All variants of the Perodua Ativa come with a spare wheel. Full sized ones too, not those skinny 60 – 80 km/h speed limit sp

One of the world’s largest carmakers is making a comeback, does Malaysia have room for it?

This year marks the 100th anniversary of one of the world’s largest car makers. It is also one of only three companies in the world that still produces both cars and motorcycles. I am talking about Suzuki. And word on the grapevine is that Suzuki is about to make a return to Malaysia after a four-year absence. Though tenth in the global ranking of size by volume, the fact that Suzuki got to where it is without sub-brands and representation in the lucrative North American market is remarkable. Ev

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. Many buyers are up in arms because of this, grumbling that carmakers are shortchanging them, or putting more expensive solutions in place. But let's dig deeper and ask ourselves, is this a valid argument? Do you really

Remember when Proton paid 70 mil Euros for MV Agusta, and sold it for 1 Euro?

Contrary to what my friends, mother, and Google search results might tell you, I am an overly optimistic fellow. I tend to focus on the positives in people and situations and give them the benefit of the doubt first. So, with that, allow me to have a crack at explaining just what the reasoning behind Proton’s ownership of MV Agusta was. Anyone with a cursory knowledge of Proton would have heard about MV Agusta. In 2004, Proton paid 70 million Euros (RM367 million) for a 57.7 percent controlling
