Hi Bro Surveychan
Yes, we got the car last week and we have no complaint at all. Only that my missus scratched the car and there is a deep gash on the left side of the car above the rear tyre. She couldnt manourve such a huge car into her office parking space. Will get it touched up next week.
Overall, the MPV is great besides the headrest problem. The technician told me before i drove the car out that they are looking into the matter. It is not Mazda's problem but the accessory shop they outsourced to in Jln 222 who is handling this matter. Fingers crossed, they could come out with the solution soon. Not much freebies from the SA, managed to squeeze her for full tank petrol and she gave us a hamper.
Although I bought the car in Shah Alam, I chose to register my car in PG. Bear in mind if registration is outstation, it will take a while to courier the docs down to the runner and get it registered. Because of this also caused the delay in obtaining the car. Anyway, I dont like Wilayah and Selangor plate, hard to get good numbers and the running number is too fast. Even for a common number, the SA charged me for RM600 runner fee to book my number in PG. I decided to fly to PG for a day and get it done myself and I can choose whatever number I want and got a "nice" number for RM210 + RM350 flight tickets = less then RM600!
We had done so far about 300km and the FC is about 3/4 tank and all in the city driving. We will test the MPV out this deepavali holidays when we will travel outstation. Will take note of the FC.
Overall, we love the MPV. Kids love it, got floorspace for them to walk from 2nd row to 3rd row and the DVD player keeps them occuppied. Plenty of luggage space and even the people on the 3rd row rides with comfy. No regrets waiting for the more then 3 months.
I assumed you a happy man now with your new M8 park in front your porch. Now you can see the rainbow at the end of the tunnel. If the unintelligent monitor have no rectification its not waste of $$. The kids are the one who enjoy most & the fighting will be less on the long haul.
Tell me something...is it worthy after all the hassle & not to mentioned a big hole in our pocket just for a transport??
