1. Left rear door is not aligned with the body, and you always need to bang it hard to close it properly.
2. Fog light switch stopped working at 7,000KM.
3. Cheap interior plastic started making noises at 12,000KM.
I bought the car brand new in August 2010. The car is severely under powered, especially with A/C. It consumes a lot more fuel than it should. Gives me 7 KM/Liter on city roads and about 10.5 KM/Liter on the highway. I checked with the dealer and with other unlucky Saga owners, all of whom confirmed that the consumption is somewhat like that.
The engine is very loud, and make sounds like a jet engine. The car makes sounds like it's struggling to run, and it actually needs a lot of rpm to reach a higher speed. If you drive it without A/C, then the drive is a little better and the car feels light. But, how many of us who have office jobs drive a car without air conditioning? You do not want to buy a RM 45,000 car, and go to work every morning sweaty without switching on air conditioner.
You feel a jerk each time when the automatic transmission shifts. It's not only uncomfortable, but embarrassing if someone else is sitting with you. Feels like a donkey ride!
How I feel:
It's not even one year that I have been using this car, but every morning when I sit in it to go to work, I wish to change it as soon as I can afford it. I am saving money to pay the difference and get some other car.
I am very disappointed with the car, and kind of feel angry seeing it parked in front of my house. I want to change it as soon as possible.
