    WIsh is on my wish list, haha, but I don't trust buying cars from PI, unless u have someone u know that u can recommend.

    i just change my car to a 1.5L MPV toyota sienta and the fC is about 15.5-16.2litre/km . if you are thinking about a family car w/o much performance you may consider the sienta. check out www.sgsienta.com
    sorry it should be 15.5-16.2km/litre! :bsmilie just woke up; pm me if u want to look at the car

    Hehe totally agree! My Mazda3 fetched only 9+ km/l until one day I kena shot by TP, heng it's only a warning letter ... After that I drive like a good citizen, slow pick up from start, smooth acceleration, never more than 3K rpm and 100kmph in expressway ... guess what FC went up to 11+!!! Good enough for my petrol-guzzling MZ3!

    Cheers!

    Wow, I didn't know such a small car can sit 7, this is really cool and may be just the car for me. Thanks for letting me know about this car, I will go check out how much it cost.

    i'm driving a cerato auto now. averages ard 10-11km/L. i get ard 400+km per top-up on normal sg start-stop traffic. not too bad. i just installed the broquet in-tank fuel thingy. lets see if i can squeeze more mileage out of per tank. other than the so-so FC, everything else in the kia is not dat bad actually, compared to the early days of korean cars. good for family usage. wifey and i thinking we might get the carens (or its replacement) the next time we scrap this current car.
    Carens is sweee! Like SUV. Got one website review I read that says "The only thing bad about the Carens is that it's a Kia", haha. Anyway, latest news, Carens OMV is around $18k, not bad for a Kia.

    Cerato full tank is 55L?

    Used to drive a Kia Spectra... FC is around 9.5 to 11.0 km/l depending on the traffic and my driving style. Served me well for 4 years. Kia is not too bad a car than most think.

    Switched to conti car just recently... (but not Scaglietti )
