My Estima is now a full-time petrol guzzler

Posted: 1st May 2015 by Jacky Yong in Cars, Silly me

The inevitable is finally here. The hybrid system is giving me a lot of headaches lately. Right after I bought it until now, I must have ridden on the tow-truck with the Estima Hybrid in tow all the way back to Johor, for at least 3 times! I have really lost count, all I can remember is […]

Does the government think that we are really that stupid? I read with amusement about a stupid minister (Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed) who claimed that car prices actually dropped! And is there any grain of truth in it? NONE WHATSOEVER!! That fucker used figures that are gravely misleading, hiding […]

The Estima that could

Posted: 12th February 2014 by Jacky Yong in Cars

Yeehaw! I’m the king of the road! Nobody can catch me! Make no mistake, this Hybrid Estima has a lot of potential still, so never look down on us! I may lose u on the acceleration and coming off the straights, but I’m untouchable around the bends and when weaving in and out of traffic. […]

It’s a Toyota Estima. Hybrid. Yes one of the rare Estima with Hybrid, and this one is the older ACR30 equivalent. Yup, it’s mine now, after my last Proton car failed on me. (The engine died after its engine oil dried up, but that’s another eulogy for another post) The Toyota Estima Hybrid AHR30W is […]

Major service of my Altis

The Altis is four years old now in my hands, but when I bought it, it was already 6 years old. That makes it 10 years old already! Being a 10-year-old car, all sorts of problems are starting to creep in. As of last year, the car porch has already got patches of oils, indicating […]

Genuine vs Fake Toyota Long Life Coolant

Malaysia memang boleh! Anything and everything that can be faked, has been faked! DVD’s, Croc shoes, LV bags, Nokia batteries, Ringgit notes, including the topic of my blog entry, engine coolant! There are probably counterfeit Honda and Proton coolants as well in the market, probably from the same factory too! Just the label and packaging […]

Few dreams can become reality, at least for me. But today, it happened! It has always be my dream to drive a BMW. Today I did not just drive it. I trashed it “kau-kau”. It was the BMW demonstration on Dynamic Stability Control (DSC for short) for a lucky few members of the public. I saw it on […]

Yokohama A Drive

I have recently changed my Altis’s tyres to a set of new Yokohama A-Drive doughnuts. I changed them for RM 185 per piece from Tek Ming in Sunway. Why did I go for this tyre? The main consideration is its price, it’s cheap considering its performance and quietness.    

Playing Need for Speed is dangerous

It is, SERIOUSLY!! Point in case : 1. This morning I start to weave in and out of traffic while driving to work. You know lar, the road to Cyberjaya so wide, little traffic, but the cars damn slow. Situation made worse when I hear Flo Rider’s “Low” on the radio. YOWSERS!! 2. I got sore thumbs […]
