    Paying comfort about $300+ per mth just for home-work-home alone. If I factor in go out with wifey, midnite supper travelling, seems like getting a cheap car of $400+ per mth is hrm... still manageable.

    In fact, I even thought of getting a 93 Lancer @ $13.8k, about $148 per mth. Kakakk, but on second thought? Hrm.. fork out a little more for new car seems to be a better option. A cheap cheap one will do.

    Anyway, my working place parking is free, no cbd, no erp.

    Ermm....Chervolets HERE IN SG or asiapac (impt difference) are basically Daewoos....chassis, manufacturing line and stuff. Buying over and that kinda stuff, that's why Daewoo not in the scene. Daewoos were bad and very bad repu last time. If you dare to try, no problems....but i'd advise let it run for a while first even if you can stand the bad repute.

    Togu, get a Sunny or Lancer lar. Can't go wrong with so cheap prices. If you have owned a car before, you will find that the basic car price is nothing. You see the loading/year and subsequent years on the insurance (for new car or you bang and there goes your NCD and low premium) and the diff between a Sunny and Aveo is peanuts. Not even factoring auntie fines, carpark at home + office /fuel/ERP.

    I can't fit into a piccanto.

    Kex, er ..yes, the $500 is for the car installments only. I'm setting a side another $300-350 for the fuel, and blah blah. Hrm... if anytime exceed, park the car in the car park.

    That's what I thought initially. But when wifey heard gotta pay more then $500 per mth, she said "you take cab better".

    Frankly speaking, I'm treating it like paying a rental of $400+ every month to solve my transport problem. I'm actually not buying anything. Trying hard not to let the car become a burden to me.

    Heh, this reminds me of the time when I'm getting my house. $140k for a 86sqf 4rm, everyone is like, wah, your house so small, etc. But now I'm paying only $60+ to HDB monthly. Heheh, to certain extent, it's like almost neglectable.

    So just thinking unless there's big big problem with the Aveo, it's 1 option within my comfort range.

    You may have a look at that esp after overhauling it to ensure it will serve you well.
    This is because many new car buyers did not figure that they will be stuck with negative equity in the loans. (basically the loan amount ends up more than the value of the car... so even if sell/scrap car, the person still ave to pay the bank a large sum of money.) Many people who went out & buy new cars are stuck in this situation. One of my friends really freaked out when i calculated for him thet should he sell/scrap his current car he still have to pay the bank the shortfall of $22000..... Did another calculation for him & told him that he has to hold on to his car for another 4-5 years before breaking even. Do think about that if you wanna buy the Getz. you will be stuck with the car for 7+ years or so (because od the -ve equity thingy)

    in actual fact......

    $400 installment + $400 petrol monthly. Once you buy a car have to prepare for all these and extras, like summon, season parking..etc. Or unless u buy second hand cars, but it's a risk also.

    Lancer is pretty cool and good, Sunnys have a "reputation" in sg. Seen Aveos being towed away for a few times, I would'nt trust a rebadged car..just my thoughts
    I lup SG, but SG don't love me...

    That's the worse part of it.

    5 vs 5 votes! Seems like the difference of about 6-7k is attractive.

    Yes, I know of several people who weren't aware that driving a car costs much more than paying the mthly loan.

    There're also:
    a) Road tax ($80-$100+ a mth, depending on engine capacity)
    b) Petrol ($200+ a mth usually, depending on mileage)
    c) Insurance ($80-$100+ a mth, depending on yr age etc, claim experience)
    d) Parking ($90 a mth for HDB multi-storey car park)
    e) Servicing/repairs (good to budget around $50/mth)

    So, it all adds up ... .

    Go for the Aveo!

    Few months back, I was deciding on the Aveo... good headroom, solid built and spacious. Was quite decided on it until I saw the Optra. After much thought, got the Optra instead as I figure I might be need the space. Ok, got to admit, it's unique and has speed ( so heavy yet can do 0-100km/h in 11.5secs for auto ).

    Buying a car, there is more to it than budgeting alone. For me, it gives me better time management and more freedom. The monthly and yearly payments are harsh, but what is lost in terms of money, the gain is in time. Spend weekdays going out... shopping ( weekday less crowd, think your wifey will be happy ), grocery shopping ( buy in bulk saves money too ), go for supper far far away, maybe a short holiday driving up malaysia? the list go on and on. Working is already stressful, so must find avenues to de-stress.

    Not that our transportation system is not efficient, my needs are special, I live in Punggol, with a vehicle, places are more accessible.

    MOre time and more outing with wifey, that's definitely the major factor to get a car. Hrm.. but not for shopping tho.

    Why not consider a Toyota Vios? The new facelift version is coming out. Also has low fuel consumption (especially the manual transmission version). Around 50+k (Checked at BM). Since it's a Toyota, It holds a high resale value.

    $49988 based on their site : https://www.borneomotors.com.sg/toyo...Price_Main.cfm

    don't have good impression both models, if intend to keep and use the car for e.g. 7-10 years, i would prefer reliable brands like Toyota/Honda.
