    Is using mineral long term ok with this particular engine?
    Having trouble finding genuine brand 10w-30 semi-Synch (so many "ayam" and fake oils out there lately)

    Just be sure to change your oil filter and engine oil within the stipulated period

    For Campro 1.6, 20W50 is 'recommended' in the manual book. Though, it seems to quieten the campro only, and it will decrease your engine performance. Too heavy.

    the recommended service interval is 10,000km and use 20w/50 mineral oil. but many are worried about the oil couldnt last so long, but its factory recommended, they should have tested it. another option, go for semi syn 15w/40 and change every 5000-6000km.

    all the above are from my own experience & some 2cents....hope it can help. :driver::driver:

    best is to reduce the km interval....

    I changed to 15" :rofl:

    If you are a normal driver, the Synergy M3/M5 would suffice

    If not, Continental CC5

    Every 20,000km is considered major lo.
    All fluids need to change, plugs, filters. Expect an expensive bill if you are not DIYing. :biggrin:
    Around RM550+
    80,000km then is super major. LOL. So called timing belt package.
    From Proton, RM1000+

    The BLM is a simple car with simple maintenance. Running cost is cheap. The parts are widely available. What more can we expect from a good basic car. Just don't expect it to be like a premium car.

    If your budget permits then go for the 1.6 SE model be it the BLM or the FL ( facelift ) version. This model is a bargain at the price they are right now. Newer is always better.

    What is the mileage on the 2009 car you intend to buy?

    Mine is 2008 1st batch model auto m-line. Mileage is 136k km. Its low as I was closer with my Waja before.
    Despite the low mileage the BLM do take a beating from my aggressive driving and I must say that I am impress at its robustness. How aggressive? I am on my 3rd/4th set of front absorber, 3rd set of tire, 3rd set of front pad, 3rd-4th time of replacing the brake fluid due to heat exposure.

    hard to say abt the fc really.
    i have achieve 14km/l,seriously amd mine is the 1st batch auto.
    the cvt model can achieve that figure easily.
    i habe to try hard for that figure.
    everyday city driving will return 11-12km/l.
    good fiure considering the great aircond.
