2nd hand value will be terrible as always and bad fc

haz,

your point on the resale value may hold some water but about the fc, i think you are just saying it without knowing anything. is it because of the old kia cars that made u say such a thing? if yes, then i agree. my old kia sephia was terrible with fc but it is not the case with the newer spectra5. modern kia models have very good fc. please don't say unsubstantiated stuff.

saying something or making statement like that is pretty much reflect your kind of brain cell. just last week my company brought in 2 used waja, december of 2007, how much? 25k only. 3 Gen2 December of 2007 too, how much? 23k.

Tell me which car is not loosing money? i am trying to say is, you are stupid for not knowing what is liability and what is investment. A vehicle is a liability.

4 bad points.

a. Poor resale value after 3 years.
b. Expensive spare parts.
c. Lousy fuel economy.
d. The name itself is bad enough.

a. Poor resale value after 3 years. - you don't know yet, you can't tell the future.
b. Expensive spare parts. - you don't know yet, its not even launched yet.
c. Lousy fuel economy. - you don't own the car (i'm assuming you're in malaysia). so, you don't know yet.
d. The name itself is bad enough. - this maybe is acceptable wink.gif

in terms of price, it should fall around city/vios but you will be getting a civic/altis sized car for vios/city money. good? it will probably have very high specifications too... probably even more than the japanese counterparts.

it is a bigger car than the city so even if it is priced close to the city, it is better value, plus, it will surely have lots more spec than the city.

normally if you read the fine print, deposits are NOT refundable.

honda also launched the current city in december 2008 but only delivered in january this year. this is to help them get bookings and have a good order list for delivery in january. to make january delivery report look good lah. so the concept of year end launch is very normal and not new. not sure if kia is using the same idea here.

imho, i don't think kia will go down the discount route again... i'm sure most of those who were affected when the prices were discounted before (leading to immediate de-valuation of their cars and immediate reduction of loan margins for new cars by banks) would not want to see a kia being discounted again.

you may still hope for it and who knows, maybe they may do it... but i feel they would not damage their brand again seeing that the forte is the best chance they have to build back customer confidence. good looking product, good price.

actually selling stuff over mudah in free. no need costs i have bought and sold stuff there... super easy. just follow the instructions but when it comes to actually meeting strangers, the general rules apply.

they will most probably outspec their competitors. latest i heard is the 2.0 will only be released later... no idea when though.
