looking for Toyota Harrier or equivalent ... recond unreg 2014 - 2015 are around 150k on mudah, while new UMW Toyota is ~250k.

I know the recond models are last generation but any idea if it's a big difference ? can't really test drive the recond units so hoping for input if the new model is worth the 100k "discount"

i prefer to pay cash but if you feel 100k cash is absurd amount.
then maybe you can relook into used cars?
unless you're cash flow positive.

Guys, I'm currently surveying for a SUV and thinking having a budget around 100k+ or probably coming to monthly instalment around 1k. Reason being wanna save some cash flow for a second property later.

I'm currently in a dilemma at a used CR-V(2015/2016) as it's probably easier to find parts for maintenance compared to other brands. At the same time, I'm wondering it will worth more if I just top up a bit more and own a brand new Proton x70.

Probably looking at changing my current 10 years old Myvi around the end of this year or early next year. Hope to hear more feedback and suggestions from you all.

Hi sifus,

1. Brand: No specific preference, but preferably not Perodua or Proton.
2. Budget: Around 50k, preferably less. Loan available.
3. Used, 2010 and newer.
4. Specs: Preferably 1.6 to 2.0
5. Transmission: Automatic
6. NA or FI: No preference
7. Type: Sedan or SUV
8. Would like to look for a car with good safety features , spacious, and fun to drive in.

Priorities:
1. Safety.
2. Performance.
3. Maintenances cost and ease of maintenance.
4. Spaciousness.
5. Looks.

Driving habits:
1. More of an aggressive driver.
2. Tend to overtake cars and enter corners in a higher speed.
3. Not much top speed, never driven above 160 km/h.

I'm thinking about Ford Mondeo 2011 2.0 ecoboost but am worried about the ease of maintenance and availability of spare parts.

After reading the posts for the past one year, here are some shortlisted options that I found (not sure which year or make is better):
1. Renault Fluence 2.0
2. Toyota Altis
3. VW Passat
4. Toyota Camry

Thanks in advance!

Hi all,

I'm currently considering these two:

Honda Civic 1.8 (2008) ~RM33k
Honda Insight Hybrid (2011) ~RM26k

Buying with cash. Plan to drive for another 5 years at least. My concerns are the maintenance and reliability. Advice please?

Forget ford, VW & Peugeot if u want cheap maintenance... Camry is good or u could go with according or even teana actually... All easy to maintain and not that expensive cost... Definitely good safety features. If SUV then toyota rush or CRV or even HRV is good.
