60k is not all that cheap for a car almost 2 years of age.

Initial price 80k+ (after available rebates) so depreciation of 10k a year is normal.

Hybrid will be cheaper than V-spec due to higher depreciation compared to similar spec non-hybrid version.

if the price is from 2nd dealers, then be prepared to spend addtional few "k"s for the processing fee, runner fee, bla bla bla fees etc.

btw for 60k (+all the fees) is not really that cheap, so either go for a new one or get a cheaper new car. if sell within 2 years, mostly likely is a lemon car unless you are so lucky that it's a genuine seller who likes to upgrade cars every 1-2 years

I wouldnt worry too much about it since still under warranty right.
Even mercs aso got some people sell off in 1 year, i think just case of some people who upgrade car.
I would just call up Honda SC to check if the service record and milage is legit.
Don't call the one that is chopped there, try some other branch.

I think previous Gen of city is better, the transformer face, with 5 speed automatic gearbox...

But since it's already $60k, why not take a look at new carToyota vios, if there is any special offer, and new car interest rate VS old car interest rate.

Not worth buying because new and used car difference is not much.
Used car interest rate is much higher, so for that kind of difference better buy new ones.

You will ended up paying like new car instalments even though getting 1year old car
