Hi bros just checking ah, COE-renewed Jazz / Fit can do Grabcar / Grabshare? Saw from the Grab website that the car must be 1.5l and above, but dunno why still see so many Attrage on the road. Would appreciate some advice! Thanks!
Renew COE eligible or not I also don’t know, some say yes some say no. Personally I reckon no.

Even if it’s ok, you have to consider higher cost of road tax (+10% more PA), higher insurance premium, more frequent inspection (yearly), more maintenance issues, lower mechanical efficiency (more fuel consumption).
Even though depreciation is low, $6k/year estimated.
Maintenance is hidden landmine, 1-2 major parts change will wipe out your “savings”.

Doesn’t matter you full or PT, get a reliable car to be on the road as much as possible and not in the workshop.
PH very high mileage, normal use can renew but not if going to use for PH.
My opinion is to get 7 seater, at least can do normal GC and 6 seater.

Usually that means a longer distance and longer time taken.
The fare computed may not be base on that route.
Might not be fair to driver.

actually if u ask me, if is along e way wont take much of ur time, i wont charge.

but if u have to detour just to help him, of coz charge him

Yesterday night took a malay beng rider. whole body tattoo even face got tattoo.

Go in car only on the phone. Then the way he talk very very typical malay beng kind. Then full of vulgar and fierce.

Then he hang up liao tell me "eh bro you later ah find me any petrol station or what ah. I want buy cigarette ah."

I just nod. Then go to a near by station. Then he go buy his cigarette.

He come back on the phone again. All the knn ccb all come out again. Say see him will slash him all these.

Reach his place he ask me fare how much.

I look at him coldly and tell him.

$8 + $5 extra stop.

We stare at each other for a good 3 second. Then he lan lan dig out some coin from his pocket and make up $13 and pass me.


Sibei heng he no make a big fuss or whack me
