Grand Vitara owners club or forums here in malaysia? They have it in UK

It's good to have a continuous forum especially when looking for parts. I
called Lion Motor Sdn Bhd this morning asking about parts, they are
shifting to a new place in Hicom-Glenmarie, so cannot entertain much.

years. Love the car, versatile, good to carry my family & to attend to my
outdoor activities, acceptable FC.

theoretically any car you can feel a bit of slow power transfer i.e.
during climbing a slope or during full passenger. As for FC, so far rough
gestimate for mine is about 1.2km/litre (KL traffic condition). Highway
condition should be better. I've no comment about 2.0 since 1.6 is
sufficient enough for me. I presumed that you have also read the
discussion about 2.0 in the previous forum. Parts price is considered
acceptable, slightly higher than protons. I agree with the aircond, not
like proton, so I tinted all windows recently to lessen the burden on the
