    The taxi in front of me jammed his brake because the entire lane 1 stopped. I got enough braking distance so I braked and when I stopped about a meter from him, BANG, someone banged me from behind and a chain collision occured. The the lane moved and the taxi in front moved off.. I think the car behind me wasn't paying attention or he's following too close, couldn't brake in time.. sian... Now car with nissan workshop.

    That's why.. remember to keep enough distance...

    It doesn't help if the one behind you doesn't.

    That would depend on your length of loan and the amount of downpayment you put down.

    He's letting insurance handle, never said anything just gave his particulars. He got people crashing into him also but his impact from the rear wasn't too great. The problem is I was concentrating on the traffic in front I didn't see how close he was. Maybe I need not know. I kept my distance otherwise I would have rear ended the cab in front.

    Now my only problem is that Nissan is claiming from my insurance first then get a lawyer to claim back from 3rd party. That's probably going to affect my NCB when I renew my insurance in Dec if the 3rd party claim is not settled. Plus I've got to pay for the insurance excess myself first. Mine's quite hefty because still P-plate.

    No.. Nissan will claim from mine first then assign a lawyer to help me claim from 3rd party. If successful then they will refund my excess and restore my NCB. Other workshop approached me and told me they will claim directly from 3rd party but since my car is still new, I prefer to go back to Nissan.

    Just collected my car today.. Seems like they did a good job but the car is already blemished, there are already some wrinkles in the spare tyre compartment in the boot.. Paid $2996 for the excess.. sigh...

    to the TS, i also recommend Latio, reason being FC not bad and the luxurious, spacious
    interior and comfy drive sure beats FIT/Jazz upside down..
    latio beats fit/jazz upside down in terms of space,luxury and drive? u make it sound like the latio is some merc S class or bmw 7 series.. and the fit/jazz is is some ulu car from a 3rd world country.

    anyway the latio hatchback looks good, add bodykit and spoiler and it looks real sporty. but the sedan version....that's another story altogether. Let's just say the sedan is more suited for the older/mature crowd..

    SPC gives 8% station discount? Ok will check it out to see if it's really true. If it is then might be worth to switch to SPC...
