2005 NAZA Ria GS 2.5 V6 from Malaysia
Fun and comfortable family MPV
Miss alignment, car goes left slightly when steering wheel is released.
Slight vibration at a 100 KPH due tire balancing.
I think the car is superb for a family of seven and it costs very low. The passengers have control of their own aircondition and light. the good part is that for RM104K, you get leather seats, electric driver seat, aircraft type pull up tables, sunroof, powered front and rear windows, Airbags, ABS, and the fun of a 2.5liter V6 engine. Downfall however would have to be the fuel consumption, 15 cents to 25 cents per Kilometer!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Naza Ria 2.5 GS/SE : As a rule of thumb, whenever you purchase a new car, bring it to the tyre service center and have alignment and balancing done. From my experience, its most often that new cars are not in 100% perfect condition at time of purchase. I had also purchased a Naza Ria 2.5 SE version and made arrangements with the tyre shop to change the standard tyre that came with the car as well. As I am not impressed with the Silverstone tyres, I got them changed with Dunlop series which offered excellent road holding and so far, is very comfortable when driving. As said, the tyre shop found the alignment was out and got that fixed as well. During my purchase and drive to the workshop, the alignment was out and I could feel the pull towards right. Anyhow, the shop did a good job and the drive thereafter was good indeed. So far, I've clocked 4000 km in my car, purchased towards end of Nov 2005, and all is fine and well. One thing is for sure, this is not a car to use for regular work travel cos the fuel consumption is averagely 4.49km/RM which works out to around 21 cents per km! You can observe good fuel saving around 17 cents per km for long distance driving if your speed is above and within 110 - 120 km/h. Its a good family car to travel and have a very comfortable journey.
