Thayaalan
1.8 VL (2009)
Bought new, Owned for 5 Years
Fuel Economy: 9.0 km/litre (11.1 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 1,000 km/month
    - Fuel consumption is good, not the best. It shines during full highway journeys.
    - Largest cabin in the segment, Altis, Civic and Mazda3 look tiny in comparison
    - Comfortable and minimalist cabin, it doesnt shine but if you sit in the VL, the finishing is really good
    - Cornering and vehicle stability is suprisingly good, helps to upgrade to 215/50/17
    - A very comfortable vehicle tbh but that's all it really is, a comfort based vehicle for family
    - Relatively overpriced vehicle with its specs regardles of E or VL variant
    - Its relatively underpowered for a car this size to be 1.8
    - Media system is rubbish, Tan Chong being cheapos
    - Should follow US and include additional features such as Eco Mode
    - Should only be serviced by Nissan, outside mechs dont know how to work on this car
To Improve
- Pricing needs to be competitive, that's why this Sylphy sales so low. Previous gen did way better
- More features
- Need to do better soundproofing for the wheel archs and fenders if this is to be truly marketed as a comfort oriented vehicle
- Overpriced but would recommend as a second hand vehicle due to its low RV.
Yes, I would recommend this car

    -no Clock for RM115K-RM125K car ?
    -back seat cannot be fold down to make large space boot.
    -Tyre Arc/ or Fender rear can hear Water flow noise when is raining or wet road.. Cheap off on arc soundproofing.

Benard
1.8 VL (2013)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 6.6 km/litre (15.2 L/100 km), RON97, Mileage: 3,200 km/month
    - Low wind noise, even travel at 140KM/H
    - Good fuel consumption
    - Rear air-cond vent
    - Very cozy front seats but rear seats less comfortable if compare with previous generation of Sylphy.
    - Huge car boot and large legroom
    - Not user-friendly Multi-Information Display (MID), limited info display at one time, user need to keep switching to see different info, eg: Average fuel consumption, Distance to Empty and trip odometer are show on different screen.
    - 3rd generation CVT transmission, not as smooth as previous CVT (I also owned a 2010 Sylphy). You can feel a ‘sudden acceleration’ at speed 40-50 KM/H range
    - Limited storage space if compare with previous generation of Sylphy. Very small center console and strange glovebox layout.
    - Handbrake scarified a lot of space for center console; I still prefer footbrake in this case.
To Improve
- Footbrake
- Bigger center console
- Re-design MID layout
- Clip for currency note and parking ticket
- Make trunk tray a standard accessory
Yes, I would recommend this car

1.8 VL (2013)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 7.0 km/litre (14.3 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 2,500 km/month
    Good safety feature with 6 airbags.
    very comfy for my family...produce less noise event at high speed.
    easy to service...tceas are everywhere and have online reservation.
    Overall exterior design is a bit humble in relative to its competitors.
    Not really liking the steering audio control. Kind of cheap feeling.
