2004 Toyota Avanza Review
My Toyota Avanza Opinion — Performance: Acceleration is great, depending on road condition and road visibility. I add more power through turbo charger, braking isn't that great, coz it's still hasn't ABS,EBD, or BA, it's only depending on front discbrake. for handling, great when in normal drive condition, it's not to good when in high speed condition that requires zig zag driving skill or even when the road is turning. Build quality: It's a monoqock body design or AKA GOA. the structure is good, but the overall exterior quality material are not very good. it's need repair, coz the exterior body it's so easy to get squeaks, but overall i don't have this kind of weakness in the body side currently. Appearance: standard interior is so boring, only one tone collor, coz my body paint is gold, i match the seats fabric to brown->gold color combination, and also for the door trim. for the dashboard and also door trim, I add some wooden panel interior, that sold partially but it's for my car only. exterior style, I match the style to the newer version of my car type, and I add a bigger velg then the standard one, to meet the power that being produced by the engine. Cost of ownership: the cost of ownership is very cheap. for any regularly service, 1000&5000Km is free. any 10000Km from last service only cost me about 750000Rupiah/ $80 (on 10000,30000,50000Km,etc), for any 20000Km from the beginning, only cost me about 1300000Rupiah/$110 (on 20000,40000,60000Km,etc). It's a very remarkable cost, and the after sales of this car today, for 2004 year is higher than when I bought the car in the first place. gas mileage, its 1l/14Km (Highway) and 1l/11Km (city). Fun Factor: Because it;s a cheap car, the overall looks can meet any daily need, from sport, family, daily, goods transportation,formal,etc. the standard looks are cool, and when u modified it, its much more cooler. the car is easy to be modified in any part(engine,interior, sound system, exterior,etc) with a minimum budget, u can transformed this car to a new look and ability, and easy to reverse back to the standard condition if u want to sell it. It's FUN.....!!!!!!!
