War of the MPVs with rear-seat entertainment!

Rear seat entertainment display is a luxury that many of us would perceive as a rich man’s toy. Most of us would have the pleasure of pulling up next to a Toyota Alphard or a Vellfire spy a drop down screen behind the driver’s seat (more often than not playing cartoons) and a collective audience tentatively watching. While rear seat entertainment is rather common as an after market accessory, cars like the Kia Grand Carnival and the Nissan Serena S-Hybrid come with one built-in from the factory.

JPJ waiting for green light from Transport Ministry to enforce child seat rule

Though the child car seat policy was introduced in January 2020, the Road and Transport Department (JPJ) has yet to fully enforce the use of it in private cars so far.

Indonesia's 7-seat Hyundai Creta is coming to Malaysia in 2022, upsets Proton X50's export plans

Limited to just 150 units, the 2004 Proton Satria R3 isn’t something you find in a regular used car lot. Keep in mind that each and every unit of the Satria R3 received a number of improvements over the regular Satria, including a double-stitch welded chassis, retuned suspension, stronger brakes, and a tad bit more power.

How to survive a car crash? Don't be stupid with your seatbelts

Have you ever come across kids jumping at the backseat of a car, while you’re stopped at a red light? This is one of my biggest driving pet peeves, people not wearing seatbelts whilst travelling in their cars. We have seen countless times, crashes on the road that have resulted in people getting flung out of their cars. Why? Plain and simple, they weren’t wearing their seatbelts. How can something so intrinsically simple to do become such a widely-ignored habit? Sadly, it’s down to both ignoranc

This new method would be a great help for drivers or even those who rely on taxis or e-hailing rides to get around, especially during this time when Malaysia is experiencing record high numbers of new infections.

Covid-19: Can alcohol sanitizers be used to clean your car?

The answer is no, alcohol sanitizers or plain rubbing alcohol might be good products for disinfecting our bodies and household surfaces, but alcohol will damage the material that are used to build the interior of the car. After rubbing hand sanitizer that is largely made up of alcohol on your hands you feel a distinct dryness to your skin. That’s because alcohol dries up anything it comes in contact with.
