You know…i never really bothered about loaner/courtesy cars that service centres hands out when you have to leave your car for days in the workshop. Unfortunately, i had to experience it first hand myself when my baby ( my nissan sentra) had to go engine overhaul
so i requested from tan chong (nissan) for a loaner/courtesy car and guess what i got…..
I was kinda surprised that they gave me the renault kangoo – not that this is a bad car but at the back of my mind, i was thinking, if a VIP leaves his Nissan Teana or Elgrand and they got this….would they complain ?
anyways, the courtesy car was extremely hard to drive – it was literally a big transition for me
-The driving experience : feels like im driving a bus – every time i lift my foot of the accelerator, the damn car jerks and the gearbox downshifts itselfs IMMEDIATELY.
– Petrol consumption – FREAKING EXPENSIVE! I pumped RM50 for 3 days drive less than 200km…..
Oh yeah, did i also mentioned that when they handed the Renault Kangoo to me, the car was already showing EMPTY on the petrol gauge
– i literally had the worst panic attack driving an unknown car into heavy traffic at 5.30pm into KOTA DAMANSARA. Not the best experience for customer i would . At least when i returned the car to Tan Chong, i had the “courtesy” ( yes, pun intended) to leave some petrol in the damn car for the next fellow.
Dear Nissan /Tan Chong,
May i suggest that you give out at least a proper B/C class courtesy cars to your customers and not gas guzzlers VANs ?
