This morning just coincident drop by at one of the Used Car in Kuala Lumpur. Guess what I discovered... Branded used car like BMW, Mercedes, Volvo, Toyaota Harrier aren't that expensive at all.
Just for comparison if you have a budget of RM60,000 to buy a brand new car what is your choices? Beside a Buatan Malaysia (local production) car from Proton or Perodua you obviously do not have other alternative.
What about you have lift up a bit of your budget to RM90,000 to buy a brand new car for you personal satisfaction. You have choices like Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Kia, Hyundai of course our lovely Proton and Perodua.
Do you ever think that with a budget of RM60,000 you could deserve to drive a used Volvo (Model S40) which only cost you RM55,000 or less.
This is the Volvo S40 from front.
Volvo S40 from behind. It looks pretty classy too.
Just think twice before you put your penny to buy a Proton or Perodua. Does it worth while? I'm not condemning our local cars quality but they really don't live up to my expectation. (eg. power window break down, roof leaking, gear box breakdown and a lot more.)
Next for a budget of RM90,000 what do you guess you can get for a brand new car? Toyota Vios, Toyota Yaris, Honda City, Honda Jazz, Korean made like Hyundai, Kia, or Nissan Sentra. Well for a budget of RM90,000 you could drive on a cool BMW 318 or Toyota Harrie easily. No joke. This is the survey I have done for the whole morning.

I know many people have different prospective on used car. But this is what I think worth while to share in my blog. Good Day.
