Hi ,

Can anyone give any pointers or tips I need to consider before buying these cars as used :

Audi Q7
Volvo XC60
BMW X6

In terms of features, reliability and maintenance cost. This is on the fact that new car’s value gores down so rapidly so shouldn’t buy brand new. My observation, Q7 somehow comes very cheap when old with so many advanced features in the car. Volvo considering because of spouse choice for safety, also price low when old. BMW I like the shape 😊. All 3 for spacious as well. Mostly for city use.

My budget is around 50-80k or 100k max . I can afford to spend on maintenance 5k per year.. if need be..

Thanks in advance.

At that budget the car is 10 years old if not more. Probably part are waiting to be replaced.

What is your budgetary for maintenance per year + 3k road tax for 3L car?

Instead you should check out the following :-

Toyota Harrier.
Peugeot 3008.
VW Tiguan.
Mazda CX5.
Proton X70.

All 5 could be had for under RM100k 2nd hand.

All 3 are adventurer cars! Make sure before you decide to buy to check their service history and perform a full checkup at a service center. always keep some cash as a backup since some of the parts are very expensive in Msia. And make sure you have a another car as your backup.

Im not an owner of any of the above, so cant comment specifics. I own a Passat CC B6.

Thus far I didnt encounter any issues on mine, but once it goes to service center, it takes long time to see the exit door!
SO I stop going to SC, but perform any service/repair at outside specialist, its cheaper and faster

And finally enjoy the ride!

Newer, a lot less expensive to maintain and far more reliable.

Also presents a lot better image as usually those who drive those you mentioned tend to wear thick gold chains and bracelets with funky hairdos.

If you gonna sell it after free warranty......

5k not going to be enough to fix anything spoilt after 5 years.
