It’s been 5 years driving Mazda 3 2010, the car getting aged and parts are gradually giving me problems. That trigger idea of changing a more daily practical car that more comfort and relax to drive, Honda HR-V come to the top of my list.
Bought the Ruse Black crossover from Honda Imavest Sdn Bhd (4S Centre), it is a 4S centre that offer sales, service, systems and spare-parts. Moreover, it does paint job too.
This is one amazingly fast experience of purchasing car. Thanks to Mr. Bruce Lee, a responsible gentlemen that do thing right on time and keep me update on important progress. So efficient that it takes only exactly 8 days of purchasing time ( 25th February noon – 5th March noon) to apply loan, traded in Mazda 3, done previous hire purchase settlement, new car registration, tinting and get the car ready for me to collect on 5th March noon. I strongly recommend if you going to get a Honda, he can be contact at this number: +60196678823.
This is a very practical day to day car, spacious storage, adequate engine power with acceptable handling and i expect it to be fuel saving as Honda claim it.
Two things that i think it lack, first, the good looking 17 inch that both Indonesia and Thailand get compare to our old looking 16 inch alloy rim. Second, lack of peddle shift which can be use to down shift gear manually and slow down the speed faster without much breaking while drive over bumps.
After few days of driving, pretty satisfied with overall performance but expect much less spirited-drive as Mazda cars can provide.
