agree bro! I also want to complain, I dont mind paking my car there for 3 days provided:
1. they solve my issues
2. give me a spare car for 3 days
somehow or rather, I dont kind of believe with "asuurance", wat can they do when accident happens? nothing right?
thinking about it, I agree that the little things like the poorer engine refinement, noise inside out, potential suddent stop while driving, crazy gear upshifting and downshifting really piss me off. and I start to ask me a question, would it be better for me to buy a camry last time? afterall, the head turner is no longer turning heads after many on the road.
well, not to say I dont like my car anymore, but given the choice, and comparison, I may think twice......sigh..
Hope you've not given up hope on your ride!
To me all car makes have their own shortcoming... even those well reputated ones. I have heard Merc B class gearbox failed in less than 5 yrs (FYI the owner never took the car beyond its limit) and a BMW 3 series started giving lots of electronic failures at its 5th year and has to go to the workshop every now and then with average monthly repair bill of RM 1,000.
I am sure Toyota (and Honda) have their problems too but the advantage of them to me at this moment as compared to Hyundai is these models have been in the market for a while hence the availability of more skilled mechanics (with better knowledge in their technologies) for these brands. Hyundai/Kia has just started to shine globally with its current generation i.e. Forte, Sonata YF, Tucson, Avante therefore the relatively limited technical knowledge at the SC to rectify & resolve problems on our rides. My 2 cents
I think the most serious issue here is the potential engine cut-off while cruising/driving. I hope HSDM can really resolve this and be transparent in communicating it to all owners. If needed... call for a "product update". I am sure if they are honest to admit the problem and are genuine in resolving it, it will gain the heart & confidence of the consumers rather than jeopardizing it...
Meanwhile back to the vibration problem... I really want to know how much the autofoam can help to improve the comfort level of the ride (I can live with it at this moment but if there is a way to improve, why not) so I hope if guys you don't mind me joining tomorrow (or is it today now?
) as well...
