Derivatives [ edit ]

BYD F3R

Derivatives of the BYD F3 include the BYD F3DM (dual mode, rechargeable electric / gas rechargeable vehicle) and BYD F3R (hatchback version). In 2009, BYD introduced the G3 as an updated/upgraded compact class vehicle – however, the F3 will continue to be sold in domestic markets.

In March 2011, BYD reduced prices on 5 of their vehicles to address slowing domestic PRC auto sales as government incentives and stimulus wind down. The price reductions range from 5 to 15% of vehicle cost. The price-reduced models include the F0, F3, G3, F6.

Several new models are due out in 2011 including a Mini-van and a HUV/CUV vehicle.

In March 2011, a review of the BYD F3DM (dual mode electric and gas vehicle) was published in the NY Times news paper. The author gave the BYD F3DM a solid, if rather utilitarian review. The price point is reported to be approximately US$20,000 after government incentives, approximately 50% cheaper than the competing Chevrolet Volt.

Currently BYD is planning a dealer network in North America with the first retail outlet slated for Los Angeles, California. 5 other dealerships are expected initially.

Maintenance [ edit ]

Many of the BYD F3 body parts are interchangeable with the Toyota Corolla E120 platform. [ citation needed ]

One common complaint in the BYD F3 is a shake on hard acceleration. This has been isolated to a series of defective front-wheel-drive axles, CV joints, or a combination of both. In some cases, faulty engine rubber mounts can be a cause of excessive acceleration shake. Replacement of these front-axle CV joints will cure this problem. [ citation needed ]

The mechanical air conditioning selector system is controlled by cable, and the cables can spring loose, causing the mode selection to become inoperable. This can be repaired/replaced relatively easily.
