Review
There seems to be people who have issues with the DPF and EGR.

This is a modern diesel vehicle, the ENGINE OIL you use to maintain this vehicle and the type of diesel you pump daily matters a lot for the life of these 2 items. The manufacturer wants owners to use the more expensive C3 grade Engine oil but most workshops (and PIs) just wing it and put the wrong spec oil in. If you continue to use the wrong spec oil, after the DPF and EGR, the Turbo is going to go bad.

There are transport companies that own fleets of these and have totally no issues with them because they have it well maintained within the right oils. My personal vehicle has surpassed 1,000,000 km without an overhaul and is still going and has made me enough $ for a Tesla Model 3.

What I like
Its basically a workhorse money maker. This vehicle is the minimum standard that people expect these days in Singapore if they want a Bus.

What I do not like
Interior is super cheap if you don't take the SUPER GL spec. But you can just overhaul it.

HUGE PSA on the type of engine oil you use.

Review
This mini bus is not bad as I can say. Worth the money. And as the diesel in Singapore I find it ok. Now I pump SPC diesel so far so good and is powerful also.

But some say the exhaust keep on having problem, but for me is so far so good as I can say.

What I like
It is auto, and is very big inside compare to the standard roof. And the engine is powerful.I like the auto door function also.

What I do not like
What I dont like is the parking for this bus, cannot enter multi storey car park need to find open space car park. Season parking also expensive.

Review
The Euro4 exhaust, design comes with the Dust Particulate Filter (DPF). It keeps getting plugged up causing the Electronic Computerised Unit (ECU) to perform DPF "force burn" sequence automatically but the butterfly valve located in the exhaust pipe keeps jamming up and sends signal to the ECU that its not in correct position, thus ECU limits the fuel supply, preventing the vehicle from travelling at normal speed. In order to clear the DPF, manual "force burn" have to be done in a workshop. And this problems keeps repeating. Each manual "force burn" cost me about $150.00 plus some 4 hours lost of use.
The workshop blamed the plugging of the DPF to the high sulphur content in the diesel, and said, Spore fuel stations have not comply to Euro4 diesel standards yet.

What I like
Good power delivery.
Spaceous interior.

What I do not like
When the troubles start to occur, its alot of money and time involves.
