Hi Guys,
i plan to buy a 2nd hand inokom/hyundai atos for my wife, she prefers manual...
around 03-04 model, what are the issues should i look for before purchasing the atos? are there major problems? engine, gearbox? rust etc......? how about spare parts availability?
thanks.

Danz, My friend have 1 atos and he say the FC is bad. According to what he say is RM50 can go for 310-325km. I'm not sure about manual one, my friend is auto. Not sure on other stuffs. Go get a myvi manual maybe better.

since my budget is less than rm7k. there are a few cars on my list.
1. hyundai atos - cheap & easy to maintain, FC not my main concern as the car will be used daily for my wife to fetch my kid from school, bout 5km back & forth from home.
2. naza sutera - cheap but spare part hard to find, & problematic power window & other stuffs.
3. fiat punto - spare parts problem, car not suitable for out hot climate. own a fiat before & its has never ending problems. worst than proton but heard the FC very good. avoide the selecta ones.
4. kancil - last resort, best bang for the buck, but already owned a kancil now, so dont want to have 2 kancil's at home.

Don't try your luck on Atos. I personally own one and the fuel consumption is really bad, RM50 ron95 can hardly pass 280km but so far I have no problem with spare parts though
yours manual or auto? hows the spare parts price? easy to get at any spare part shop?

Danz, sincere advice. Just take kenari or kelisa. My friend also fast fast sell this car due to bad FC and car no power (after carrying 3 adults, MEN). Just pay more for the 2 models i mention and next time if you wanna sell the car, the resell value also higher. And the spare parts of these 2 models are easy to find in any spare part shops.

jerry...yeah i would like to get a kenari or kelisa too....but unfortunately im under budget, both those p2 are
double the price of the atos that i will be viewing tmr.
but anyways its just to ferry my kids on weekdays, still got perdana & kancil to run around.

sorry. engine should be 1.0 not 1.1.

not sure about the auto problem.
mine doesnt have auto gb problem. just do routine maintenance.

however, when sold off, used car said 1st gear got problem.. take long time to change to 2nd..
but i dont encounter that problem when sold the car.
maybe they floored the pedal thats y it 'hold' the 1st gear :smokin:

just viewed the car yesterday in kepong...just beside zhapalang motorsports shop only...
the atos was 2 owners, engine bay seems dirty, oil sludge build up..., the previous owner did not take care of
the maintanance properly, interior wise, the roof top was wavy looks like will tanggal anytime, seat belt buckle broken,
some diy visible wiring, half pass 5 job. others ok, exterior was given a fresh 1 layer of paint.

but didnt have the mood to check the car thoroughly as the car was parked under the hot sun.
selling price rm6.8k. non negotiable...wtf....!!

i just went home after that.....
