I have just tabulated my 2012 Peugeot 408 2.0 maintenance and repair spent in 2018, it is a freaking close distance from Boy96's 308 CC. Final bill total =RM11,934.00

F*cking A

Added to my injury is wife's 2014 Mitsubishi ASX just spent RM1,238.60 for 2018 maintenance

Hahaha that's why I avoid Peugeot and most other European cars like a plague! The only Euro cars that I might be remotely interested are just Mercs, BMW, and maybe a few Nissan engined Renaults, and they must be good performance cars to attract me, not just their common models. If just common cars, I'll just stick to Japanese.

Mercs, Bimmer would be even more scarier since they are premium brands

Renault, Nissan parts are reported to be over priced too. The state of things with the Renault Nissan alliance is hazy now with the arrest of Those and still in jail.

I think yours is a bit unlucky. However you should not count on upgrades but just pure repair and maintenance.

But in general they have a bit better reliability and anyway more understandable if expensive cars with expensive parts, unlike Peugeot! Cheap car, no prestige, nothing special but yet crap reliability and expensive maintenance and repairs. Sorry to be blunt but that's the reality.

For Renault, yeah that's why I said "maybe". πŸ™‚ Coz I know Nissan quality and reliability is also not as good. But at least still nowhere near as expensive reapairs as your Peugeot!

Well then yeah you're unlucky! Probably owning a Toyota engined Lotus will still be cheaper then owning a Subaru engined Toyota! I admit it's a very nice looking car though, saw a nice black one today.

2 sets of tires in just 30k km?? Must be some extreme category with only 200 TW or lower isn't it? I change tires usually at 40-50+k km. But 2.4k for 2 sets is damn cheap. 1 set of mine is already around that.

Hi all !

As a first time car owner ( year 2018 ) I'd love how much others have spent on fixing your car as well

here's mine

it's  a 2011

Kia Forte 1.6 with 185,000km clocked in.

Been driving this baby for 9 months clocking in 23,000km in the meantime
Tyres RM1750 , bought 7 new tyres last year as I had 3 flat tyres , Keep finding weird metal chunks in my tyres hence

2nd Hand Rims RM300

Paintjob RM850 , bang into a wall when I was being careless

Spark Plug RM450

Black oil RM600

Transmission Fluid RM200 ?

Coolant RM100 ?

Air filter and AC filter RM 200 , bought and changed myself

Totals up to RM4450 for 2019 to fix up my car.

The cost is pretty high even when you mostly DIY. How often do you change your spark plugs? Why your coolant so costly? Your service interval every 5k or 10k?

Actually not too bad because that already included tire and timing belt change which is normal. The only one thing I think a bit odd is the hand brake arm. Also the oil change frequency is way too much especially since using good FS oil.

I can't really remember the price of my coolant to be honest , but after some recollection I think it's about RM65

the spark plugs I've changed once over the span of 10 months , I have a few bought online for RM80 but my dad didn't know and got one from the mechanic which cost RM200

I change hand brank arm because the button spring melantun and terkeluar....dunno how to attach back. Bought a whole new handbrake new one laugh.gif

On my routine changing engine oil (FYI i use semi synthetic oil only to date) is because i want to avoid oil sludge in my engine. Proton Preve CFE/Turbo is known for its OCH (Oil Cooler Hose) issue where the two hose which are attached to Oil Cooler Assembly are suddenly burst.

I don't particularly care much for Japanese cars.

Most of my life starting with my first car I've always driven cars that were made in Europe and yes all of them I bought 2nd hand.

No more Alfas in Malaysia as there isn't a dealer and most of their engines have issues with our fuel quality here.

No more Saabs because this car company no longer exist. We always thought we would keep that Saab as it was made in my wife's hometown but it was getting tough to source for parts even if you have the money to pay.
