The car loan got settle. And it a less than 10 years first hand gen2.
since it working good, no plan to change. I rather spend 2-3k repair per year than buy new car for RM65k++ (example: Preve) and possible to get unknown headache issue. The problem I facing now also due to major services (timing belt, tensioner, water pump, 4-to-1 ekzos to remove catalytic converter). Once I manage to fix this issue, I think it will serve me well again.
Even to get a new car, proton will not in the list. Sorry to proton fan. I know the car is okay and value for money, but the overall perception, I will go for non-proton. Just my personal preference, after I experience first own proton's car (do not count car from parents, friend... bla bla, this truly I drive it everyday)
By the way, my gen2 serve me good for 10 years, with unavoidable problem/issues (steering clock spring, door handle broken, power-windows fixture, aircon compressor jam, bad low rpm torque and kena engine mati at traffic light, ekzos tailpipe rusted), at least it meet my min requirement - no break-down on road.

That's why i told that, sometimes it will be cheaper with new affordable car like Preve manual executive come with 3years free services than maintaining old car.
