Today, I ordered the cheapest car from Smove, and this was what I got.
Curiously, the 9-year old Vios's 1.5-L 4-banger sounded mighty trashy at full chat; Attrage’s even-smaller 1.2-L 3-pot, in comparison, was decidedly silken. Note the aftermarket push-start button - a necessity feature on the Smove fleet. Worked intermittently on the Vios because somehow the fiddly button on the steering wheel column always required a few tries to start or off the engine.
After LCR recalled its Attrages, all I can say is so long, Mitsubishi, you will be missed (by the Food Preparer only).
TriBeCar’s $20 for 2 hours was comparative with Smove because he had to pay own gasoline.
Smove charges $8 per hour for a maximum of two-hour hire under an ultra-short rental scheme. Under this plan, mileage charge is additional. A hirer can except to pay about $7-$10 on mileage charges for a two-hour usage.
I find that carsharing is a great way to access a vehicle on-demand. As the car is insanely and stupidly expensive in this country, I worked out a super-duper easy formula on financial prudence for car buyers:
”Buy a car that costs the sum of your annual wage.”
In short, if you earn $50,000 p.a. (before employee CPF deductions), you should buy a car that costs no more than $50,000, and so and so forth. It helps too if you spouse works. Then both of you collectively might be able to buy a more expensive car.
To this end, I'm still waiting for that new Attrage (priced at $57,000 at last count).
One day, I want to ride TriBeCar’s Honda Wave 125i.
Almost 30 years after getting my Class 3, I’m going back to driving school - erm - I mean riding school, to earn a Class 2B. It will take around one year to pass and qualify for the entry-level motorcycle license, though.
Off the bike, away from the lessons, try to imitate the actions (changing gears, up/down throttle) by sitting on a chair and envision the situation. Over time, your neurons and motor-nerves form automatic pathways without conscious thought. I got my class 2B and 2A easily through these means.
Over time, you may consider class 2A for power and manoeuvrability. But I got banned from riding by new wife. Hair…
But alas! I have always got a weak back. Today, the strain is back. Ouch, foch me!
Think I have got to KIV the riding idea for now. Was worried that I manhandling the weight of a sub-200cc motorcycle might induce or aggravate the condition. Worse still, it makes riding unsafe for me.
Anyhow, BBDC enrolment is valid for 12 months. I will mull over it depending on my back condition. If a part of your body is in pain there’s nothing you desire to do.
Like yours, my wife was (mildly) against the riding idea too, albeit mine was for Class 2B.
Great stuff that you have both A and B licenses!
