LONGTERMER #4 Vol 4: Perodua MYVI 1.5SE+ Auto

LONGTERMER #4 Vol 4: Perodua MYVI 1.5SE+ Auto
In this blog entry, I'm updating my family's ride. This is the 6th month we owned the MYVI 1.5SE+.  Well, my sister sold her 2007 MYVI 1.3SXi(M) last month (mid March). See my SOLD Post... (please Double click the link) As a result she officially took over this MYVI 1.5SE+ Auto from my dad.  She even called this car "BUMBLEBEE".  This means that I can't update this blog entry as detail as I'd like to as my sister can't help me to monitor the best/worst Fuel Consumption and ownership experience of the car.  

Therefore, I'll update this "LONGTERMER" every 3 months instead and less detail compared to now.  On 13 March 2012, this Myvi Rear left tailight was a target of daring "amateur" thief in Sunwaymas Commercial Centre (along main road outside 99 Speedmart) in broad daylight (between 1.30 to 2.45pm.  He/she tried to pry open the tailight but failed, resulting in broken rear left tailight cover (I'll try to take the photo by tonight and post it here).  Posted 1902hrs.
As you can see, the main LED bulbs were not affected.  Only the surrounding cover.  A replacement today costs RM400 (outside) and RM465 from Perodua.  Wait another 6 months I was told before the price will drop.  Something to do with Economies of Scale.

The MYVI 1.5SE+ covered merely 7300km as at 20 April 2012 cause it's no longer DRIVEN HARD by my dad.  Rather, in my sister's hand, this car's used 12km total to and fro office everyday.  This is disappointing as this car's scheduled for 10,000km service on May 20 2012 (ie. less than 1 month away).  Gasp...  What to do???  

Due to the short start/stop driving by my sister, the Averaged FC dropped from 14.8km/l to 11km/l.  Worst 9.0km/l and best 13.6km/l.  Ie. Fuel Consumption increased.  

Without further ado, let's proceed to Logbook:

Mileage upon delivery: 0023km
Mileage last update: 5874km
Mileage used last month: 822km
Mileage last month: 6696km

Mileage this month: 7300km
Mileage used this month: 604km

Average mileage per month:
1217km. (A drop compared to 1469km @ last update 2 months ago).

Purchase price: RM54,000 (less NCB)
Interest rate: 2.95% @ RM42,000. Public bank for 5 years loan.

FUEL CONSUMPTION (NOTE, this is the last time I'm doing this format as this car now is in my sister's hands.  She can't monitor this for me):

Best: 16.8km/l, LCCT Trip.  Petronas RON95.  18 January
WORST: 8.8km/L (Shell RON95) 80% City/20% Highway driving driven by Me. (January 27)

This 2 months:
Best: 13.6km/l (RM0.15/km). (70% highway/30% city)
Worst: 9.0km/l.  80% City, 20% highway.

0-100km/h: 10.9 seconds normal acceleration in "D" with Air cond on.

Major Expenses:
NONE over the last 2 months apart from Fuel, parking and Tolls...

Before I go, here's some parting shots:
ABOVE: The sporty Dash meter...
 Above and below: SEEING DOUBLE.  Notice the "Wide 16:9" mode.  This is taken using my new handphone, Nokia N8.  9MP 16:9 wide mode.  Downsized to 1 megapixel.

That's all folks, see you in 3 months time.  Ie. Mid-July 2012 for Volume 5.  An original JEFF LIM'S Production.  MY original work.
