2006 Toyota Avanza 1.3 VVT-i NA (K3-VE) from Malaysia
A Great City MPV Worth your Money!!!
A very bumpy car. (but considering it is a MPV, it's still OK as it is not meant to be driven fast).
Powerful enough for an 1.3 L engine, running on 185/70 R14 wheels, and does 0-100km/h in 14 seconds, having top speed of 160+km/h ; nice engine performance.
No blind spot.
Acceptable fuel consumption (13.37 km / Liter, city drive)
Perfect handling on smooth roads, but never bring it fast on bumpy roads.
Air-Conditioning is good with twin blower.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Toyota Motor Corp. became the world top auto seller in the first three months of the year, passing rival General Motors Corp. for the first time, the Japanese automaker said Tuesday.
This is the latest news, Toyota has rank WORLD NO :1 for the past 1 quarter!! Hooray... Hooray!!
I owned Altis and VIOS over the past 4 years. I never feel that Toyota quality is compromised despite that they have mass produced cars in the world. One Toyota, One World, this is the Motto of Toyota. Which means, same quality standards across the globe. It is certainly not easy to climb up to the hall of fame, the persistency, perseverance, the hardwork that makes them to be world no ONE!
I think Tun Mahathir called for look east policy is correct, somehow it was not institutionalized across Proton. You can talk until the cows come home... this is exactly what is happening to Proton.

Haha... I don't think its the car's problem, because this is the first time I heard of this problem amongst all the problems I had known from internet forums.
Have you solved it?

Boring facelift... always cosmetic makeup.
I assume there will be "newer" Avanza, but still the old structure...

Can you please help me, because till now I can't decide which I will purchase 1.5mt or 1.3 mt. Please tell me if the 1.3 has much better performance rather than 1.5.

Please help me decide what to buy:
A brand new Avanza, 2010 model or 2008 Innova, they have the same price now.
