thanks for the input. I did test drive the 208 before. the car was good in term of handling but acceleration was adequate (1.6 before the 1.2 turbo) . handling was fun too.

however, when it come to  ownership, i had see my friend who own a 308 before, and the amount of complaints he had and the servicing fees. car was last sold 20k out of the 130 k spent. I think i will not commit to a french lion for my next car purchased for now.

No worries. Just a suggestion to cover all alternatives.

Like I said this is stock clearance deal because new model already open for booking in some markets.

Bro you shouldnt wait for year end sale. The depreciation that you suffer is more than the discount they gave

Car value due to depreciation by the time you want to sell the difference is nothing much. Not even 5k I believe. If you buy expensive car, say after 5 year 50% drop, 200k become 100k. Cheap car 40k become 20k. How much the difference for a year older car after 5 years? Many people hold on to their car more than 5 years. 3k to 4k difference is not much I suppose.

Don't see a reason to sell a properly maintained 2004 Accord.....As much as I love cars but don't feel the need to get myself committed to another loan and getting a merz does not make sense to me when the money spent on maintenance, I can eat better food......

I just traded my 5 year old car to a new pick up. Reason is, of course financially it is manageable and i do not what to enjoy the car when im in my 40s. Life is meant to be lived to the fullest. That's just me. It could be seen as a burden to some but what the heck. It puts a smile and joy in my soul every time I see and drive the truck.

Been driving my 17 year old Proton Waja given by my parents for the past 8 years with 270k clocked. Im surprised how reliable it is and been spending an average of 2k-3k a year maintaining it which included a full repaint 3 years ago.

However, during the past 8 years, i've also been wanting to complement the Waja with either a BMW e39 or later an Audi A5 coupe as a weekend drive, but each time I have enough saved up, i use it to buy investment assets like properties instead.

So now, i recently got married and with starting a family in mind, i will have to get a new sensible car which will need to last a very long time. Hence, recently made a booking for a new Mazda 3. FYI, Im one of those who is never a fan of SUVs. Probably after 2-3 years, ill revisit the weekend car dream, maybe a Porsche 981 Cayman for less than RM200k?

Same here, sedan all the way. I have a weekend car, honestly its under utilized, as much as I want drive it, some times you end up using the main car, one reason or another
