Hi all,

I'm planning to get a MPV for my family growing needs. Have narrowed down to these 2 models. Any suggestions which one I should buy?

I know the Wish is an outdated model, going to be replaced soon, but the pricing is good. However, the Stream is smaller but more powerful. Not so many version compared to Wish. I'm talking about getting from PIs. Not planning to get from Borneo or Kah. Reason is that Borneo ones are not totally made in Japan, and Kah ones are only very basic model with a high price.

Any comments are deeply appreciated.

Honda stream is a more updated model than the wish. Also you can consider the newly released Honda Freed, which can sit 8 and extremely fuel efficient.

Thanks bro. Looking at the Freed, I don't like the 'backside'. Not as nice as the Stream. I'll either go for the Wish or the Stream. Think I'm more swayed towards the Stream.

Personally I would prefer the Wish. But I would suggest that you test drive both cars to see which suits you more.
Have tested both. Wish is more spacious, but engine wise, I think Stream is more responsive. Price wise, Stream is steeper. Difficult choice...:confused:

OK bro. Basically, I have 5 adults including myself and 2 beautiful girls (my daughters lah). What you thinking of? Shooting them? :bsmilie:

I think the Stream just nice. After I position them, they sit comfortably with ample leg room. We're all not very big size, so overall a comfy ride. I'm looking at since going about the same price, why should I buy something outdated (ie the Wish technology)?

Why must after Aug? I dio tok very deep (中毒太深)liaoz...Must show me now lah! :bsmilie:

This one is worse than my camera gear, so must really consider carefully.

I'm a light footer, so FS should be much much better than my current Mit Lancer, which clocks about 10km/l, max 11km/l. :thumbsd:

I'm not an environmentalist, so not going for CNG. I don't drive a lot, so won't contribute so much pollutants to Mother Earth. Only during my free time for my family. I want them to lead a better life! :)

Siao liao...I think I sure go Stream liao...no need even to see your car I already swayed towards it. :devil:

Have tested drive with my family with KM, but it's only a very, very basic Stream. Don't even have armrest, yet still selling more ex than the PIs!!! :thumbsd:

I'm definitely going with the PIs, be it Stream or Wish.
