i paid off all my cars and can go for a new one but the current one is really running fine and don't feel like changing it although it's already 9 years old, the question is do we change car once it reaches certain age or mileage or only when the problem start coming out one by one? The thing is if we only change car when it becomes problematic, we still have to solve the problem so that you will get a good value or is it better that we change car before the problem comes out?

But do you feel safe at all in so old a car?

for me, my 15 years old wira is breaking down.

I've been in a few minor accidents with this car too.

Now my real concern is safety. I want to change to a safer car since now I have a family and a 5 months old baby boy.

This is my logic too...so I'm always lurking around FnF , reading and soaking up advice and knowledge from fellow forummers, esp @zenix , and hunting for those underappreciated car brand...

like Renault Fluence.. tongue.gif

Curiosly wanted to know if any LYN members are holding on to car purchase at the moment and what are they waiting for, what holds them back, what car are they waiting for and why?

I ask this because I am due to have a car change in a year or two, and would be in the same predicament.

Guess I am just gathering thoughts from you guys.

I am not a car guy so don't intend to change my current 7 years old ride. Will continue to drive it and keep some money to replace worn out parts here and there.

Due to the high tax structure, mabbe will look for a used car for my next ride.

I don't feel safe in a 7 year old car to be honest. Every day

What car are you driving now & how much is your yearly mileage? This can help the sifu's here give better opinion.

I drive a 7 year old old pug 408. Traded my then 8 year old Hyundai Accent for it.

Yearly mileage used to be about 15k km but dropped down considerable to about 10k km or less in the last 3 years due to economic condition.

I just reluctant to start paying loan for few more years again. Haha. Current car still running fine, can't complain or have any impulse to change.

This is true. You have to commit to some amount from your salary of money to be flushed out.

From another point of view, I wonder how many converted the "extra" money into saving? Most I believe end up at same amount at the end of the month laugh.gif

I used to own a peugeot. I am too scared to buy anything non jap. I dont want my car to be a source of stress. Even if one day I can afford a BMW. I'll opt for a Harrier instead.

JAP > ALL.

Getting loan again is a real a bummer I agree. We have salved for a car loan for multiple cars so far and one of the holding back is this one you have just pointed out.

My situation is a bit however different. Due to need of travelling long hours regularly on the road, safety is my topmost priority a and frankly speaking I feel very vulnerable in a car that has a lot of safety features lacking . That is what bother me the most every freaking day.

I only just managed to survive 4th year of my car. So far touch wood, my car not giving any major problem, service is relatively low at outside workshop. HAHA i cant say the same, my 1 airbag Almera is "so safe" that TC dont want to add anything extra to keep the cost affordable. I am looking at a used Pug 2008 puretech in 2 more years or i could wait for the X50, or Iriz (Manual) if the owners feedback is good. I only want the car for short drives, for parents pasar trips.

generally anything with reasonable safety features...at least 4star ancap...

and c-segment...(family size growing)...

SUV comes first, then Sedan...No MPV tongue.gif

But generally, sedan got more choices, meaning more likely of it suffereing from poor RV... SUV limited.

i do notice that Pugs are not that reliable. but the newer Puretech engines are getting more reliable. Less 2nd hand cars on sale after 1st year. Plus its not for daily drive. The car really very nice to drive, i got a spare car anyway. only if its really cheap.

Just 1 simple reason, not enough money to buy cars that I want so better not buy yet. It's not urgent so probably wait until really urgent to buy another one, most probably when my son later really needs to drive himself.
