    - Sinamahan ko bumili ng tiles kaibigan ko and ginamit namin yung Kicks. Nung kaming dalawa lang, mas napapansin ko na at slow speeds, ride comfort pag may potholes or biglang drop sa kalsada, medyo hindi okay ang shock absorption ng Kicks and matigas yung sidewall ng Stock Tires niya (nagcheck kami tire pressure na sunud sa nakalagay sa pinto na reference).
    - Nagkarga kami ng 200pcs na 30x30 ceramic tiles sa likod . After nakarga sa Kicks, parang mas "okay" sa potholes yung behavior ng Kicks dahil "laden" na siya. Can say in my opinion na mas "okay" at least compared to kung 2 or 3 passengers lang. At low speed ang tukoy ko na kulang yung "shock absorption" when unladen.
    - Never nagconnect Wired Android Auto after switch on Kicks and Infotainment sa first attempt. Laging warning yung "need to have same time sa clock on both devices". Unplug and replug every time. Chineck din sa Android OS 11. Sabi Android Auto over Bluetooth should be compatible if 2021 or newer yung vehicles. But, hindi talaga gumagana Android Auto over BT for the Kicks on either of our phones. So your mileage may vary.
    - No change sa FC, 14km/liter average speed of 12kph.
    - Brake autohold, really only engages once you reach a certain "level" or point sa Brake pedal depression when stopped ang Kicks. Pag lightly pressed, kahit full stop ka na, makikita mo lang na hindi pa nakaengage yung autohold unless you press the brake harder.
    - At around 60kph speed, magengage talaga engine to charge the battery over 2 bars of charge to 3 bars at least. Below that, parang happy to keep the Li-On charged up to 2 bars lang ang Kicks in terms of how it is programmed.
    - at stop and go traffic, intermittenly mag-on yung engine not to charge the battery, but to create brake boost for about 5 seconds max. Hindi naman every use of brake pero di masabi kung every "ilan" applications ng brake na fully engaged. Parang won't exceed 5 sure mag-on daw yung makina to charge the brakes.So in stop and go traffic, mas ginagawa na friend ko yung Autohold para (sa tingin daw niya) hindi mag-on madalas yung makina to re-charge the brakes. Either Autohold or Electronic Parking Brake kung stop light sequencing. So depende.

    ok yan na 14kpl. Kasi yung gaso ko magagawa ko 14kpl pag 40 to 60kph speed.

    itry nyo traffic stop & go. Kasi kung magremain pa din or kahit magdrop ng 10 to 12kpl eh ayan na pinakamatipid.

    Usually sa gasolina pag traffic na bagsak ng 7kpl

    2 to 3 months para mapalitan ang windshield, isang bagay na napaka importante yet napaka tagal mapalitan kase wala sa priority ang safety para sa nissan

    kaya mas okay pa din kung made in the philippines ang sasakyan para may local parts na

    I'm seeing very few Kicks sa local roads. (Taguig & Makati)

    sold out na ba first batch nila? or konti lang bumuli?

    rare model comes with a rare price, law of supply and demand, kaya mas okay pa din ang peoples car (majority na ginagamit)

    Update regarding first actual FC computation from my friend.

    Average speed = 12kph
    FC average readout from Kicks = 14km/l
    Total distance travelled = +/-324kms
    Total fuel put back into tank (full tank automatic) = 25.61liters

    Actual FC computed = 12.65km/l

    Not great, but not bad either (at least for me). Per my friend, he did a lot of idling while running charge mode as well which "may" have contributed to dropping his FC further from the digital readout. So, he plans to change how he uses the Kicks and only use "charge mode" when in motion.

    Maybe it will help improve FC, I personally don't really know.

    But for my own comparison, at 12kph, for my 1.6L NA engine, that would be +/- 7km/l only. For the 1.3 i-dsi, I approx it to around +/-8km/l to 8.5km/l with those average speeds.

    Hopefully it improves further after 1000kms and his engine is already "broken in".

    Minor part, but itong stint niya, maraming short trips lang because majority nito wala pa siya OR/CR kaya takot itakbo ng malayo sa bahay. baka maflag down lang. last week lang niya nakuha OR CR niya so mas magagamit na "as intended". And nagexperiment din siya with charge mode while parked kung mas "okay" ba to charge while warm pa yung engine before shut off para next day pag gamitin niya hindi kaagad mapilitan engine to charge while cold (inefficient pa). And if mas okay ba to charge to 2 full bars or 3 full bars etc etc.

    Pero sabi niya nga sa banda huli, mukhang dun nagkamali kasi from 1 to 2 bars compared to 2 to 3 bars, parang mas matagal mag charge up to 3 bars. so mas papabayaan na niya mag auto charge yung kotse and try daw niya mag charge mode lang pag malapit sa 1 bar lang and malapit na siya sa destination na papatayin yung kotse.

    Intayin ko na lang next full tank niya anu update kung mas "okay" na ba.
